HOW TO WEAR A SQUARE SCARF

Hailey Fynaardt

If we've ever hung out in person, you've mostly likely seen me wearing a scarf, year round, in almost any kind of weather. For me, an outfit doesn't quite feel complete without one. Because of this, I used to have a pretty serious scarf-hoarding situation in my closet, but as I've worked on simplifying and tidying up (are you in on The Life-Changing Magic, yet?) the rest of my life, I've pared down my scarf collection to a handful of my very favorite pieces, which includes the scarf I purchased this past Spring during my trip to India. In fact, I've loved (and worn) this scarf so much, I spent nearly two months corresponding back and forth with the owner of the shop that I purchased mine from, and arranged for a small shipment of these beautiful handmade scarves for the shop. 

My favorite thing about these scarves is... everything! The lightweight fabric is comfortable and cozy, even for the most claustrophobic scarf-wearer, and the patterns are all so pretty and unique, no two pieces are the same! And each scarf is finished with delicate details like fabric-wrapped seashell tassels and buttons. I also love the square shape, although I wasn't quite sure at first how to wear it, especially with the tassels on the corners. But once I found a low-maintenance way to wrap it, it became my new go-to scarf style. 

Here is my Simple Way to Wear a Square Scarf:

 1. Fold scarf into a large triangle by connecting diagonal corners
