HOW TO TURN YOUR SCARF INTO A LUXURY FACE MASK

With quarantine and self-isolation only offering us fashionistas the option to get dolled up to watch Netflix, our desire to show our individuality through our clothing has taken a back seat to act as responsible citizens in the time of this pandemic.

Not to worry, there are still creative and sustainable ways to showcase your style while doing your part to prevent the spread of Covid-19 and staying safe.

Check out these steps for transforming your designer scarfs into stylish face masks:

The hair tie method for smaller scarves, neckties, and hanker-chiefs.

1. Fold a square scarf horizontally to about the size of four fingers.

2. Place the hair ties over the folded scarf. One should be around either side, at the general width of your face.

3. Fold either side of the scarf over the hair ties and into the middle, tucking one side into the other.

4. Place the mask over your face with the hair ties over your ears to secure.

5. Adjust to make sure it fits over your full nose and mouth.

The tie method for larger scarves.

1. Fold the scarf diagonally into a triangle.

2. Place the fabric over the lower half of your face covering your nose and mouth.

Two corners should appear on either side of your face (down your back), and the other corner should drape down in front of your face and over the top part of your neck and chest.

3. Take the short ends that are over your shoulders and tie a single knot at the back of your neck.

The knot should be tight enough to hold the scarf in place but not so tight that you have difficulty breathing or turning your head.

4a. Bring the left and right ends of the tied scarf back over your shoulders so that they drape down loosely over your chest.

4b. For a tighter look and feel tie the two ends in front of you, still holding them taut. Hide the ends under the long end or remaining corner of your scarf.
