2 for 1 : turning a jacket into a scarf

Is it a jacket? Is it a scarf? No, it’s both!

I love scarves!  They are not only a useful item in the upcoming cold season but also a simple way to completely change a look.

You can transform a boring white t-shirt look into a fancy one just by adding a fantasy scarf . I also use them when I want to wear some of my evening dresses but I am going for a more  casual look.

Scarves are also ideal when you wear the same coat very often and you want to give it a little twist to change your look.

I know I’ve said it already but really, I love scarves! I would like to have them in all kinds of colors and materials (wool, cotton, silk…) since I use them very often. However, it’s not so easy. 

A few months ago I needed something to match a leather jacket . I spent a fair amount of time looking around in shops searching for the perfect color to match my old leather jacket, but nothing was good enough.

Finally I came up with a simple idea.

To use one of my softy jackets as a scarf. It turned out to be very practical . The trick is to tie the sleeves to keep them in place.

After this little experiment I have used some other jackets for the same purpose and it works.  I can tell you that even some of my friends have copied the idea!

It looks great, doesn’t it?

    Me encanta tu blog¡¡ creo que voy a ser tu fan nº 1. Por cierto a mi también me encantan las bufandas, pasminas etc, y lo que hago, es al contrario, las suelo cruzar delante, atarlas detrás, y ponerme una chaqueta encima de forma queden como una camiseta/jersey.
    Por cierto prueba a ponerte el jersey al revés, es decir la espalda delante, de repente tienes jersey nuevo¡¡

      Querida Gema,

      Me encantan tus ideas! voy a probarlas. Me intersa mucho culaquier idea de como cambiando el uso común de las cosas podemos obtener otras; salir de lo convencional, pensar diferente. Te animo a mandar alguna foto si te apetece colaborar de una forma más visual.
      Espero que sigas participando, no hay mejor fuente de ideas que el intercambio.

      Saludos =)
