When you are choosing a scarf keep in mind three things:
3. How you wear it
We shouldn't even have to explain to you that scarves are a must have for Fall. They're inexpensive, available in a wide variety of styles, and they'll fit no matter how many Pumpkin Spice Lattes you throw back. Oh, and all the celebrities are wearing them (not that we care about that, though, right?)
You've scoured the mall. You've picked out a scarf that's just the right color, just the right print, and just the right weight for your climate. Now what? Are you standing in front of the mirror in various self-inflicted headlocks as you attempt to tie around your neck just right? Worry not cherry friends! Here are five basic scarf tying techniques.
1. The No Tie Tie. You can't get any easier than this: Just drape it around your neck, and viola! When to do it: When you're wearing a necklace, when you want to break up a boring outfit with a splash of color.
2. The Simple Knot Tie. It's so easy you haven't even thought about it yet. Just drape it around your neck and tie it in a basic knot to hit just at the top of the chest. Rearrange the tails so they fall one in front of the other (as opposed to side-by-side), hiding the simplicity of the knot. When to do it: When you want spice up a yoga pants and v-neck tee shirt ensemble.
3. The Backwards Wrap Tie. Drape your scarf backwards around your neck, so that the center is flush against your throat and the tails fall down your back. Take the tail falling over your right shoulder blade and bring it across your back and over your left shoulder so it falls down the left side of your chest, and repeat with the opposite side. Keep it wrapped tightly for a polished look, or slouch it down a bit for a more relaxed vibe. When to do it: Instead of a statement necklace or to cover a spit-up stain on your shoulder!
4. The Backwards Wrap & Knot Tie. Complete look #3, then add look #2. When to do it: Under a buttoned up blazer with the tails hanging out past the hem, when your scarf is super long.
5. Button-Hole Tie. Fold your scarf in half and drape it around your neck so that you have both tails hanging over one shoulder and the folded center over the other. Open up the folded center a bit to create a button-hole, and thread he tails through the hold. When to do it: With big earrings, with your hair up, when it's freezing outside.
Now that you have the basics, the options are endless! Let us know your favorite way to wear your scarf...we always love to see the pics of how it looks.
