Over the weekend it was beautiful- today- it is rainy and dreary, but April showers bring May flowers, right? Oh! wait, it is still March… but today’s tip will help you feel like it is May. It is as easy as tying a bright colorful scarf around your neck, as well as a few other places.
I work in display and dressing the mannequins is one of my duties. Day scarfs are very popular and I accessorize many mannequins with them. I often hear from customers – “I bought a scarf, but I never know how to wear it , can you show me.” Since I can’t show you up close and personal, I found this video tutorial by stylist, Amy Salinger for you to master the art of simple scarf tying.
The title of the video is How to Tie a Winter Scarf, ignore that - replace ”Winter” with “Spring”. The steps are the same, the only difference is the texture of the scarves that she is using.
Below the video, I have taken a photo of each of the 4 different ways shown in the video to help you remember the technique.
A bright colored scarf tied around your neck, will brighten up your face. Try it you will see.
#1 The Wrap Around Knot
#3 The Butterfly Knot
# 4 The Slip Knot
A few extra ways to wear a scarf not shown on the video.
The Waist Wrap
Weave an oblong scarf through your pants loops. Tie in a simple knot and let the ends hang loosely. Stand tall and walk in style.
The Wrist Wrap
Fold a square scarf into a triangle. Starting at the pointed end fold to create a 2″ band. Wrap around your wrist and tie into a knot. Now you can shake hands in style.
The Bag Tie
This is one of my buddies at work. She just stands around looking good all day in her size 4 jeans and no body fat, while I do all the work. She takes her job pretty seriously, never complains, but hardly ever smiles.
I will be back here tomorrow with another give-away and idea on how-to bring a little bit of Spring into your life.
