Easy Summer Fashion: Scarves

August 1, 2006

Blueprint PurseNeed a new purse in a hurry? Or do you have some old scarves sitting around that you don’t know what to do with? Why not make a scarf-purse. Sound strange? Maybe, but after looking at these chic pictures, you’ll change your mind.

You’ll find directions here.

This idea came from Blueprint magazine, a new magazine in the Martha Stewart empire. It’s full of great projects!

Don’t forget, scarves are very flattering and can make an old outfit fresh. Tied around the neck, or around a ponytail holder, it adds instant color. You can also take a rather “blah” solid-color dress and punch it up by adding a brightly colored patterned scarf and with shoes or sandals that are in the same color range as the scarf. Plus it add instant class!

    I wish I didn’t feel silly and conspicuous wearing a scarf. They are so cute on other people.
