If, one day, you open your closet and realize that you have way too many scarves, your first instinct might be to do a purge and get rid of some that you no longer use as often as you did back when you first got it and while that seems like the right thing to do, it’s not really all that practical. Instead of getting rid of those scarves you spent your hard-earned money on, why not upcycle them and give them new life? Here are a few no sew scarf tops and dresses that you can make for this season.
- Beach cover up top – let’s start off with an easy one. This quick and simple beach cover up top is sexy and stylish; you won’t even think it’s made from a mere scarf! Wear it with denim shorts for a nice beach / pool lounging look that’s chic and unique.
- Halter top – it’s been a while since we’ve seen some really good outfits that included a halter top and we’re on a mission to bring this style back into mainstream fashion because, honestly, halter tops are so perfect for summer and so easy to pull off.
