6 Ways to Wear Selendang Scarf as Top


Selendang scarf is undergoing an utmost renaissance. Since our grandmas and mamas, Selendang has been shaking off its reputation as the elegantly respectable accessory of choice for women – always wrapped around the neck or thrown over the shoulder and fastened with a brooch.

And while there’s nothing wrong with wearing yours in the elegant traditional manner, the beauty of a selendang scarf is in its brilliant versatility. In fact, there’s a different way to wear yours for every occasion; casual or formal! Here, we style our Selendang as a top, all with the size 195cm (length) x 51cm (width).

Tunic Top

What if you could wear a chic resort look in a city? You can. With two Selendang, this look is possible. Wear a piece of selendang over your neck and pin-tuck it on the side. Do the same thing with the second selendang, this time over the first selendang. Wear this over culotte or flowy maxi skirt with sandals!
