Tuesday Tutorial- Scarf Tying!!!

Ohhhhhhh….scarf season is almost upon us (not that there is a season or seasons for scarves in my book)!  Glee and joy! My love affair with the scarf began during my first trip to Europe where every dewy faced fashionista seemed to have one elegantly draped around her neck — or Chanel purse.  While the Chanel purse was then, and still is, out of my budget, scarves are (mostly) not!   The scarf is one of the most versatile accessories you can own and can be used to spruce up any outfit of basics.

For those uninitiated in the cult-of-the-scarf, the concept of tying one can be initially be quite flummoxing. Indeed my first attempts to wear one ended up looking  like a rainbow colored anaconda that had snaked itself around my throat.   I studied, I observed, I spoke with fake french accent, I learned. Luckily, the best way to way to tie and wear a scarf is generally the simplest.   However, the scarf size and shape will generally dictate the method.  Here are a few for ya!

The Drape

This style looks best with a pashmina (large rectangular scarf that is generally made of a cashmere or silk/wool blend). It is also the most basic – so basic I can hear you gentle readers saying, “Duhhhhhh!”

Pashmina!

Place the middle of the scarf in the middle of your chest area (or neck and later pull down)

Pull the ends of the scarf back around the front.  Et voila!  Have some cafe au lait now.

The Hacking Knot  (Parisian Knot)

One of my favorite ways to wear a scarf — the way most of the scarf-wearing mademoiselles in France wore them.

This style works best with pashmina or oblong scarf.

For those cold and blustery days, this can be easily converted to a great neck warming style  . . . .

Simply take the ends of scarf and separate them . . .

BibVariations

These are great styles to wear under a suit, but they really only work with a square scarf.

Fold your square scarf in half diagonally and drape at your neck with the point down.

This is a twist bib style . . . .also pretty easy but looks more complicated when you wear it.  Very English countryside!

The I-Don’t-Know-What-This-Is-Called-So-I’m-Callin’-It-Fluffly-Knot Tie

This is a very feminine style of scarf tying that works well with blouses and blazers.  First you need to make that square scarf into an oblong one.  You could use an oblong scarf, but I find they are too long for this style.  The converted square can be used to tie around your purse and even as a wrist-wrap (which looks super-fab when wore with a tank watch over it).

Here is how to convert it. . . . .

Twisty-Tie

This is another fun way to wear scarves– but you need two oblong ones in colors and patterns that work well together.

Basically, you twist the two together (this is a little tricky at first)…

Twist, twist, twist ...

Then do the drape…..
