The whole country seems so excited for the Olympics this year. There is so many British and Olympic memorabilia around at the moment and this scarf is a great addition to it. This is the Paralympic scarf from Next, it costs £5 and all profits go to British athletes. The scarf is 50cm by 50cm and I have been challenged to wear it in as many creative ways as possible. As I have been a bit unwell I got my sister to model the scarf.
This is my personal favorite way to wear the scarf. Although its not long enough to bring the ends back to the front I find loosely tying it at the back and then scrunching the front looks lovely on.
I have been tying the scarf through my bag a lot since I received the scarf. Its a very simple and easy way to wear the scarf and show your support for team GB everyday. (The photo doesn't do the scarf justice, it looks a lot better on the bag in real life)
Wearing the scarf around the neck like this was inspired by classic air hostesses. I have tested this out with a few outfits and it looks best with a plain top, especially red or white.
The next 2 ways we styled the scarf were on the head. I really love the top picture, for that we just folded the scarf until it was really quite thin and put it on like a headband and tied it at the back of the head. The second way of wearing it would look great with a topknot. Obviously the 2 parts sticking out can be styled into more bow shapes and things.
The Paralympic scarf is my new favorite scarf. There is also an Olympic scarf available for £10 which is double the size of the Paralympic scarf.
How will you wear yours?
