One of my favorite accessories to bring to the beach is a scarf. I use it as a coverup when I don’t want to just be in my swimsuit. This works best for super-oversized scarves like my Vuitton one—I just take two ends and tie at the narrowest part of my waist, which creates a natural long leg slit.
If you want to give your outfit a little extra style, like Kourt’s all-black cardigan and shorts or her pink summer set, take a scarf, fold it in a triangle, and fasten around all your hair, tying it underneath, close to your neck. A quick trick, if you want something that perfectly complements your outfit: head to your local fabric shop, go to the silk section, and pick out something you love for the moment. We just bought half a yard to create this matching look, and it’s something no one else has.
This trick also works great with something oversized or just a long rectangle. If it’s oversized, fold it in half to the shortness you like, then wrap it around and tuck in the corner of your swimsuit or underwear and give it a good roll—this makes it even tighter.
HEADBAND or HAIR TIE
Since such little fabric is needed for this, you can buy a 1/4 yard of fabric, or take a scarf and fold it in a triangle then roll it, starting with the corners to be about an inch or so wide. You can make it a headband, or tie it around your hair tie of a braid or ponytail. A really cool trick is to cut the bottom two inches off a shirt and make a matching headband.
