When I was putting yesterday’s post together, I was inspired to look through my archives for other ways I’ve worn my vintage polka-dotted square scarf. I’ve had this scarf my entire life — I used to dress up my dolls in it!
This polka-dotted square scarf is one of my smaller scarves, measuring at 20 inches square. A smaller square scarf can be so versatile! To make it longer, I usually make a triangle out of the scarf, then roll up one side until it’s like a long rectangle and long enough to wrap around my hair or neck.
Here are four different ways I’ve worn this vintage square scarf:
I had a lot of fun dressing up as Rosie the Riveter this past Halloween, and one of the essential details was the head scarf. I wrapped the long ends of the scarf around the front of my head, then tucked the end of the triangle into the tied ends of the knot.
This is one of the most common ways I wear a square scarf, which are less bulky and therefore ideal to use as headbands. I especially like to wear scarves as headbands when I have shorter hair. I feel like they have more impact with shorter hair.
I often utilized this trick when I had longer hair, as it’s such an easy way to dress up a ponytail.
A classic way to remix a square scarf! This is how I wore this scarf in yesterday’s post, as well. Tying the ends of the scarf in a square knot works particularly well when worn around the neck.
My polka-dotted scarf is vintage, but here are some similar square scarves:

Do you like to wear scarves? I was never really comfortable wearing scarves until I lived overseas, and now I can’t imagine not remixing scarves in different ways. They can add so much to a simple outfit!
