Need advice on what to wear

I'm making a custome up and I can't decide what to wear under a long scarf. I want something cool (as in not hot to wear) and I don't mind showing a little bit of skin as for as my stomach. I want the piece to be tribal looking or nude, something very plain. I was thinking of wearing just a bra (as the scarf will cover up a lot of my body anyway), but I'm not sure how comfortable that would be. Any ideas on something more modest? Maybe a cami? This may sound vague, but I'm really open to suggestions for something that's natural looking.

Is the scarf the outfit? Are you trying to make it look like the only thing you're wearing is the scarf or something, because a really easy way to do that and not have to worry about a disaster is to sew a dress and just make it LOOK like the scarf is wrapped around you (that's what I'd do.)

Maybe you could try going for a less-beaded version of Vanille from FFXIII? Take some of the easier parts of the design and incorporate your ideas into it. It's a tribal look, and I think it might work if you take her skirt (without the fur pelt) and maybe some kind of tube top? Then you could add the scarf, maybe some bangles... I dunno hope this helps!

Perhaps you can go for a wrapped look with bandages. Or you could go for a shirt like Shuichi wears in Gravitation when he's in concert. Those are just my suggestions
