Scarves are one of those winter staples that make you look instantly more put-together. But here at Fox in Flats, winter isn’t enough for us! We reckon scarves are stylish all year round. To prove it, here’s a round-up of the internet’s best when it comes to making scarves work for summer, plus a couple of tips of our own.
A classic for a reason. Fold a square scarf in half diagonally and loop it around your neck with the largest part of the triangle in front. Creates instant colour, it’s great camouflage for baby-spew, and distraction from whatever body-image issues you have going on. What a winner.
