A layering essential—make your own infinity scarf using what you already have in your closet


Infinity scarves are oh-so-cute and work wonders with just about any outfit. Wear them tight for a lush and cozy look, or let them hang in looser loops for a casual dose of layering.


Different styles abound in stores and online, but the great thing is you can easily convert your regular scarves into infinity scarves yourself (for free!)—just another way to have fun with one of the most versatile staples in your closet.


How to make an infinity scarf

For thicker scarves without end tassels, a safety pin will do the trick.

And when the mood strikes, simply undo and switch back just as easily.


Happy looping!
