 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 have 8 great ways to tie a scarf for you.

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.

The Wrist Wrap

Tie a Scarf-on-a wrist

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.

    1. Hi Nancy – I am not sure why you couldn’t view the video and why it kept reloading. It could be something interfering with your internet connection or something else. I am not sure. I just opened my site on an iPad using Safari and the video played. If you haven’t gotten it to play yet, maybe clear your cache on your iPad and try again. Wish I knew how to make it work for you.
