The school summer holidays are upon us and many of us will be packing our beachwear and jetting off to possibly-not-warmer climes given the summer we’ve had so far here in the UK. Most of us like to take a beach dress, sarong or other wraparound for wearing over our swimwear on the way to or from the beach. But you don’t need to buy one from a beachwear department; just pack your Blue Flamingo scarf. One of the scarves’ strongest points is their large size which makes them ideal to wear in a variety of styles as totally unique tops around Monaco or as bold beach cover-ups at Cannes – or whichever holiday destination you’re strutting your stylish stuff in this summer.
Another feature of Blue Flamingo scarves is that they are made from pure silk. Unlike high street summer scarves which are made from low-cost synthetic fabrics such as viscose and satin, the natural fibres of Blue Flamingo scarves are breathable, and they feel soft and cool against your skin. They are so soothing to wear after a hot day at the beach when your skin can feel dry and irritated from the sun, sand and salt water.
But in case you find the evening breeze a little too cool as you sip your romantic sunset aperitivo at the bar, the pure silk of Blue Flamingo scarves offers great protection from the elements, again unlike lower cost options.
Below are some suggestions for how you can style your Blue Flamingo scarf over your bikini, or wear comfortably about town all day long so you stand out from the crowds.
Tie the scarf around your waist for a classic lower body cover up. If you’re lucky enough to have great legs, go for the shorter option as shown in the first image.
Tie it tight, or hang it off an ample bust!
3. Halter neck #1
Start with the scarf behind your back and pull the top corners in front of you.
Twist the corners round each other in front of your neck.
Tie the ends behind your neck.
4. Halter neck #2
Start with the scarf behind your back.
Cross the top corners over in front of you and tie the ends behind your neck.
5. Halter back
Fold the scarf in half.
Take the new top 2 corners and tie in a very small knot.
Open the scarf out and you will see two armholes which you slip into from behind.
Tie the top two corners over one shoulder, tight enough so the scarf doesn’t sag on your chest, and the bottom two corners under your arm.
Oh so many ways to do this one – let your imagination run wild!
