A few years ago, I bought my most favorite item of clothing EVER: The circle scarf. A circle scarf is a large piece of fabric that’s stitched together into (you guessed it) a circle. Why do I love it? Because it can be worn in a bunch of different ways. I had no idea when I first bought what I thought was a pretty, comfortable scarf that I would also be able to wear it as a shawl, a skirt, and even a dress. Here are some of the other ways I (and Annabel!) wear a circle scarf.

Even your kids can get in on the fun!

To achieve these looks, you need to start with a basic circle scarf. I have a few in different colors, but this one is my favorite.

Pull one end of the scarf through the other end, then tighten to your comfort level.
Knotted 5 of 12
Put the scarf around your neck, then tie the end in a slip knot.
Nursing Cover 6 of 12
This one is easy! Just pull the scarf over your nursing baby.
Shawl 7 of 12
Put your arms through each end of the circle scarf, then put the extra fabric over your shoulders.
Twisted Top 8 of 12
Put the circle around your waist. Twist the material once in the front, then put the other end of the loop over your head and around your neck.
Tied Maxi Skirt 9 of 12
Step into the circle scarf, then pull one end up around your waist. Gather the excess fabric on one side, then tie it in a snug knot at the hip.
Folded & Tucked Mini Skirt 10 of 12
Double scarf over, step into it, then pull it up around your waist. Fold the excess fabric around the back, then tuck it in until secure (kind of like how you tuck a towel around your body after a shower).
Tied One-ShoulderDress 11 of 12
Step into the scarf, then pull it up around your body. Tie the front and back ends of the scarf over one shoulder in a secure knot.
Twist Tied Girl Dress 12 of 12
Have the little girl step into the scarf, then fold it over to the length you prefer. Wrap the scarf around her body, twisting two ends of the fabric up and around her neck. Tie into a secure knot behind her neck.
