It has already become clear that the scarf, as simple as it may seem, is the most versatile accessory of the spring-summer season, since we have gone from wearing it tied around the neck, like the French, to wearing it like the old Hollywood stars, around the head. As the days go by, new ways of introducing the scarf to our outfits are added, taking as an example the models, celebrities and other fashion prescribers who are always at the forefront. Catwalks and streetstyle have given us the key to try even more uses of this iconic accessory, from head to toe (literally). We thought it was not possible!

The multifaceted top

We learned that the scarf can, with little, achieve a lot, and thus become the central element of our looks. The greatest furor has been its top version, either as a bandeau, which consists of tying it crosswise behind the neck, or simply tied at the back. The latter is the bet of the model Toni Garrn, with which she manages to emulate the style of the coolest girls of the nineties.

The knot ahead

Lucía Rivera is no stranger to this phenomenon and she has wanted to contribute her grain of sand with another widespread way of turning the scarf into a top. If you're one of those who aren't shy about showing a little more skin, flip the 'kerchief top' inside out for a pretty strapless neckline. It's so eye-catching on its own that you don't need to think much about how to finish off the look. A pareo skirt in neutral tones is the key if you want to exactly copy the image of the model, although the combination possibilities are almost endless.

In the way of the 70's

The scarf tied under the chin is by far the most sophisticated option, clearly reminiscent of the fashion of the sixties, when Audrey Hepburn or Jackie Kennedy popularized this trick by wearing it a thousand and one times. In summer, however, it occurs to us to travel to the seventies, as the influencer María Valdés demonstrates, to wear it in the 'pirate' style, on the head and tied with a knot just behind it.
