Chubhti, jalti garmi can bring with itself tonnes of issues, one of which is extreme sweating and bad odour.

I mean, not are they just versatile (scarf tops? scarf bags?) and DIY fashion’s best friends, they will be a good friend in need for your smooth and silky hair. Doing the duties of sunscreen for your hair, scarves are also great style elements to spruce up your basic white Tees and sundresses.
