Before you spend a pretty penny on an of-the-moment (say, Saint Laurent) skinny scarf, I have a totally free suggestion that offers the same chic look. Take a quick look through your closet—odds are you’ll find something that will do just the trick. I repurposed an old silk sash (pictured below) that I found stashed away in my belt collection. The silky number was originally attached to a skirt as a way to tie an exaggerated bow (I had removed said sash for a less-fussy look). By taking advantage of an item I already owned, I was able to recreate a major street style trend without spending a dime. Now it’s your turn!
