Create funky looks with scarves while travelling

New Delhi May 1 : When travelling, save space by ditching overpacking clothes and avoid heavy belts.

Just take along a few lightweight scarves as you can innovate with them as bandanas, mini bags or belts, suggest experts.

Esha Gupta, Founder, House of Zeniaa, and Meesha and Trisha Khanna, Co-Founders, Meesha Scarves, have listed few ways of turning your colourful scarves into multi-purpose commodities:

* Wrap it up as a belt: Change the look of your dress by tying a fun coloured or even patterned scarf around your waist.

If you have a skinny scarf handy, try pulling it through your belt loops and securing with a bow.

* Swimsuit cover up: Swimsuit cover-ups are one-trick ponies. They're often see-through, so you can't wear them anywhere but the beach or pool. Tie your scarf around your hips for a bit of cover, or wrap a larger scarf around your chest for a strapless dress style.

* A fun little skirt: Throw on a scarf over your bikini bottoms or workout shorts for a cute vacation style upgrade.

* Tie it into a mini bag: If you ever find yourself in need of an extra hand, try tying a scarf into a mini hobo bag.

Simply gather up the corner, tie a few knots, and you'll be carrying your farmer's market goodies in no time.

* Shade your eyes and feel boho: If no eye mask in available, tying a scarf around your head works just as well.

Perfect for airplanes, trains or bright hotel rooms.

* A long, flowing scarf adds a soft feminine touch to any outfit, but for a different look, a lengthy scarf makes a stylish, handy belt.

Use it as a wild west handkerchief, which is too easy to carry over a t-shirt and jeans for your flights and travel.

* Pack along a neutral scarf that makes a statement, and it is bound to be the most versatile and powerful accessory in your travel wardrobe.
