It’s the summer of thinking outside the box—at least for the fashion set. From all our favorite insiders styling men’s swim trunks as shorts to Julie Pelipas making this jaw-dropping dress out of curtains (something I haven’t stopped thinking about since I saw it on Instagram days ago) to the topic of today’s post, the scarf-top craze that’s stealing the spotlight from every other trend out there, It girls are clearly getting crafty and potentially saving us money while doing so.
Think about it. What are the odds you have an old silky square scarf somewhere in your closet? And if not yours, perhaps your mom's, grandma's, aunt's, or sister’s? The investment-worthy accessory is a staple we all own, and if not, definitely should, which makes getting into the scarf-top look a no-brainer. Couple that with the outfit inspo you’re about to see below and the fact that the breezy top is perfect for beating the heat, and I think my work here is done. Just keep scrolling to see the trend in action and shop both the tops and scarves you’ll need to get the look stat.
