If you’re anything like me, you’ve got piles of scarves snaking around in the closet. But just how often do you wear them?

This week, we’re continuing our series of style challenges by daring you to accessorise with the one simple, classic item that all of us will undoubtedly have in our wardrobes:  the scarf.

Whether it’s with a wisp of silk, a drape of cotton, or a wrap of wool, the challenge is simple:

Wear a scarf every day, in a different way, for 7 days straight.


6 reasons to try the scarf dare:

1. It’ll be a great way to bust out of an accessory rut.

2. You’ll probably discover a bunch of new, easy ways to wear your scarves that you’ve not considered before.

3. You’ll cheer up your scarves. They’ve been really lonely shoved away in your closet, and would love an outing with you to prove their worth.

4. You probably won’t have to buy anything new to participate.

5. We’ve got loads of tips, ideas and inspiration to get you going.

6. We’ll call you “chicken” if you don’t join in. “Burk, Burk, Burk!


The rules:
  • Join in whenever you like, but to complete the Dare you need to do it for 7 days straight.
  • Each way you wear your scarf must be distinctly different from another.
  • Choose any type of scarf you like, but challenge yourself to wear your scarf in a way you’ve not done before.
