Fashion Friday: Ways To Tie A Scarf
Have I mentioned yet how much I love fall! Now I must admit: the biggest reason I love the season so much is the fashion. The boots, the hats, and the scarves; fall is wonderful!
Pinterest (<< click there to view mine) inspired me to find new ways to tie scarves. Now, when I looked at the tutorials from Pinterest, here and here, I thought many were cute - but were they practical? In short, yes, most of styles were easily replicated. Some, however were only doable with certain kinds of scarves. Here's my review/tutorial!
I started with three basic scarves. The first one (on the far left) is an average, heavy knit scarf that is mostly used in the winter. The middle was a lighter scarf, yet made with a heavy material suitable for the winter and late fall. The far right scarf is more a fashion scarf - light and not really meant to keep warm.
The bow tie was the first look I tried. Cute and definitely different. I can see this variation looking great with a fall dress. However, this is not a look that duplicated well with the other two scarves. Definitely opt for a lighter material scarf when attempting this bow. Also, be sure you choose a scarf long enough to tie into a bow.
I loved how posh this tie turned out to be, and really, you could use just about any scarf you have! I simply doubled the loop around my neck and tied it off to the side. Very versatile and wearable with almost anything!
The light/fashion scarf was so versatile that I came up with many ways to tie it. On the left I simply tied the ends together and wore it as a very long necklace. On the right I loosely tied three knots in it so it hung down straight. Light scarves are wonderful accessories for fall if you're not too worried about being warm!
Simple and classic. I had to throw this easy tie in the mix! Just fold the scarf in half, toss around your neck and pull the ends through the loop. This look will work with any scarf, but my favorite was with the heavier fabric because it was a very full result.
And finally the infinity scarf. I absolutely LOVE infinity scarves, but they are often hard to find, especially in pretty patterns and materials. Here I've taken my heavier scarf for a fake out. This works well with any scarf you have. I just tied the ends together on the back of my neck. You can also tuck the ends and the knots into the remaining fabric at the base for a seamless look. This works especially well with jackets since the collar will hide the knots anyway.
I found most of my looks worked well with the lighter scarves. Unfortunately, not much worked with the heavy knit scarf, but those are mainly used to keep warm and not so much for fashion. What are some of your favorite ways to tie a scarf?
