The scarf is an underrated accessory only because not everyone has seen its maximum potential. At the mere mention of it, tropical-living gals like us tend to doubt its sartorial merit considering that it's usually known as a layering piece to keep us warm. But with a little creativity, there's so much a stylish girl can do with a square-cut and a skinny scarf.

Below, we'll show you the many ways you can utilize scarves beyond keeping you warm:

1. Knot-free

If it makes you feel a bit suffocated having scarves tied around your neck, here's a quick solution: Keep it untied. Simply fling one end over your shoulder and you're good to go.

2. Front Knot

Sometimes a single knot is all you need to look chic and secure your scarf in place.

3. Modern Pocket Square

Do pocket squares seem too plain for you? To jazz up your blazer, take a small scarf and experiment with knots before tucking into your front pocket. Add some brooches and chains if you're aiming for an edgy vibe!

Stay protected from the sun's heat by wearing a scarf on your head as an alternative to a hat.

5-6. Neckerchief and/or Bag Accessory

For a neckerchief, achieve this classic tying technique by folding your square-cut scarf into a triangle and wearing it with the pointy end in front. Then tie the ends at the front to secure the scarf. On the other hand, you can also tie your scarf around your bag's handle to upgrade your arm candy.

8. Thick Choker

If you're not yet over the '90s choker trend, then a printed scarf tied around your neck could be a cute alternative. It will add a fun element to your solid-hued ensembles.

11. Denim Frill

If your denim-on-denim look seems a tad too tough or too masculine for you, a scarf add-on will easily soften up your outfit.

13. Wrap top

Not into showing too much skin? Turn the scarf into a wrap top instead. Tuck it into your favorite mom jeans for a laidback look. Quick tip: If you don't have an extra large scarf, take two square-cut scarves to achieve this instead.

14. Knotted Tube Top

You can also work your scarf to function into a tube top. Instead of hiding the knots, make it the focal point of the look by tying everything in front. This also makes it easier for you to adjust it as needed.

15. Waist Cincher

Got a boxy top? Ditch the common belt and go for a bright-hued scarf to define your waist. It also doubles as a pop of color for outfits with a neutral palette!
