Wear A Scarf as a Necklace

While trying to work one into an outfit this week, I found a great way to wear a scarf. A quick and easy necklace!  I have a small collection of vintage scarves. I can't stop myself from buying them but I don't wear them often. I love the bold colors and patterns.

They're a great way to add a pop of color or a piece of flair. They are also cheap and abundant at the thrift store.

First let me tell you about my scarf. It's silk. The colors are amazing. It has antelope on it. WTW? You know I have a thing for kitschy animal jewelry. It doesn't make sense and I love it. I found it at an estate sale last week. There were many beautiful ones available including collector favorite, Sally Gee. I snagged one of those too!

I folded it thinking I would wear it kerchief style just tied around my neck and left hanging. It didn't really go with my relaxed sweater though. That works better with a blazer.

I tied the scarf in 3 knots (this can change depending on the length you want). I did the same technique with a chain belt. It's easy and adds texture.

Voila! It's a scarf necklace.

Now that I know what to do with them, I feel good about adding more to closet!

On a very very serious note, Violet's cousin and best friend is missing. She is believed to be in Atlanta, GA or Jacksonville, FL. We would really like to get the word out and bring her home. I've linked to the message I put on FB and Twitter. Please share and retweet it. Thank you.

I love scarfs and I love wearing them. I've rocked a long scarf as a top one time and I was complimented like crazy! I love your idea. Never tried it, but I will tomorrow. Thanks for the inspiration!
