Office Layers: Staying Warm at Your 9-to-5

It’s a dilemma we face every summer: suppressive heat outside and blasting air conditioning inside. Getting dressed becomes a careful practice in duality. Outfits have to work during your sticky commute and under the freezing vents at your desk. The key to stylishly surviving? Layers. Lightweight and neutral, a Jenni Kayne cardigan tucks easily over a tote in the heat, and looks chic over a Black Halo dress during a meeting. A gauzy wrap is another packable option. Before you get to the office, tie a colorful Rag & Bone scarf to your shoulder bag. Once you reach your frosty destination, wrap it around your shoulders or neck for an elegantly efficient way to warm up.

Ask Shopbop: 3 Ways to Wear a Scarf

I am in a scarf-tying rut. What are some fun new ways I can wear my summer scarves?

A lightweight scarf is one of the most versatile pieces of summer. I keep them stashed everywhere! From a style perspective, they can transform an ensemble, and more practically speaking, they’re perfect cover-ups for cool evenings or a chilly office. The styling options are pretty endless, but I narrowed it down to my top three suggestions.
 
NECK SCARF
When the weather is not too hot, and you are looking for a little more sun protection, a neck scarf is a great option. Lightweight Thakoon Addition scarves cover without adding bulk.
How to wear it: Casually twist the scarf and wrap it once so the two loose ends are hanging down. Tie the ends messily off to one side and untwist where you want more coverage.

HEAD WRAP
The beach is a perfect time to pull inspiration from the ’70s and wear your scarf as a head wrap. Not only will it protect your hair and scalp from the sun, but it looks effortlessly glamorous.
How to wear it: Fold the scarf into a triangle and then roll the folded edge a few times to shorten the scarf (if your scarf is already short, skip the rolling). Tie the ends into a loose bow over your hair at the nape of the neck. Be sure to keep some hair hanging out or you’ll end up in pirate territory.

WRAP SKIRT
When truly sticky-hot weather hits, you’ll want as few layers as possible. With a few folds and knots, a gauzy scarf transforms into an airy, breezy skirt.
How to wear it: Fold a large scarf into a long triangle. Center yourself so your hip hits the scarf in the middle, at its longest point. Pull the scarf around your waist and let the longs ends drop to the sides. Gather material close to your hip to create faux ends on each side (if you tie the real ends, the skirt with either fall off or be very risqué). Tie the faux ends in a secure bow, grab a cool beverage, and enjoy the summer.
