Scarves are fashionable trend statements. They have become functional trends for both men and women. Scarves are the most versatile accessories that come with different styles and fabrics. Short scarves are as popular as the other types of scarves. Short scarves are either within 14 to 16 inches or are below six feet. To accentuate your look with a short scarf it can be worn in three different fashionable ways.

Short scarf as a head wear

Traditionally, scarves used as head wear began with a cultural purpose. Religion has also indicated the various significance of wearing scarves as bandannas. Along the years this cultural and religious practice of wearing bandannas has been incorporated as a fashion statement. It has gained popularity most especially by women. Short scarves fit well with designs such as turban, gypsy wrap, and head bands. Always begin with a triangle and wrap it around your head when using short scarves as head wear. You could either fully keep your hair with the short scarf or pleat the folded scarf to place across the the front part of the head. Then secure to tie a knot and tuck it at the back or at the side of your head.

Short scarf as a garment

Another versatile function of this kind of scarf, is that it can also complement your look as an additional garment. It is most popular as an accent in swim suits, tube tops, and shoulder wraps. Short scarves are folded into a triangle by folding it diagonally. It is then adjusted to the preferred look that covers any bare skin. The scarves light and soft fabric texture makes it feel comfortable. This kind of scarf accent is an effective alternative for people who are uncomfortable baring too much skin when in a swimming suit. It can also work as a tube top. Fold the scarf length wise and pleat it for additional design to wrap around your bust line. It is best paired with short jeans for a trendy look. It can also be worn as a shoulder wrap for sleeveless tops.

Short scarf as an accessory

Using the scarf as an accessory is the most prominent function of a scarf as a fashion statement. It can be worn as a side-knotted or traditional belt. You can fold the scarf lengthwise and wrap it around your waist as a belt. It can also be folded as a neck wrap or as a tie. Neck wrap can be worn by folding the scarf in half and placing the middle at your neck to create a loop. Loop it around your neck to the design that you want. You could also hang the full length of the scarf around your neck and let the sides hang. The hanging side could be knotted into different styles that suites your look.
