It’s ideal for this hack too if your scarf is light and flowy. No heavy fabrics here! Consider getting a scarf in a pretty floral print if you don’t already have one. Florals are great for spring and summer because this print is very feminine and an instant mood booster.

How to Turn Your Infinity Scarf into a Skirt

1. First, make sure you have an infinity scarf and not just a regular one
Also, you most likely will want to wear something underneath as a base depending on how sheer your scarf is. Something like a neutral bodycon skirt would work. It can act as a slip without being one.

3. Put a belt on over your scarf

4. Slowly pull up the top of your scarf to make it even and match
Feed the extra material through to cover the belt loop and match the length of your first layer. It’s up to you how short or long you want this to be. You can also change the style by belting around your waist or hips!
