Tuesday Topic: How to Tie a Scarf

Welcome to Tuesday Topic! Today we're going to learn how to tie scarves. A few basic strategies, really. If you have a go-to scarf strategy, I'd love to hear about it! No, seriously. I'm always looking for great ways to wear a scarf.

Welp, here we go.

I did this here


I did a version of this here


 I did this here


I did this (but with a way longer scarf, so I wrapped it lots of times) here


I did this around my waist (instead of neck) here


I don't think I've done this one yet. Will do!

(Thank you, my beloved cell phone, for being an excellent neck stand-in.)

There you have it, friends. Hope this is helpful. Again, I'd love to see pics (thanks to those of you who sent me pics/links from last Tuesday's Topic! You look great all belted up, ladies!) of your attempts/successes. You think I'm kidding about that. I'm not.

And, for those of you who are inspired and anxious to get yo' scarf on (gross), I'd also like to announce A Day in the Life Too...'s very first (drumroll please) (actually, no drumroll. lame. and loud.)
GIVEAWAY!!

It's the model scarf you've all come to know and love. Obviously, this scarf looks good tied in these (and many many more) scarf-tying techniques. It's a lightweight cotton, which will be perfect for this coming spring. And I'll be jealous of your cute scarficity. But happy for you, too. Kind of.

Well, Brittney. I'm catching up on your fashion bliggity blog today. WHY oh WHY didn't I read this post before going to NYC, home of scarves? I almost only use #1, and I am so excited to try the double loop! I might just call it the dub. So perfect. Like you.

My favorite way is to have it draped around my neck, both ends facing front, and a belt over my waist OVER the scarf. works best with long, light scaves. I'm already a follower :) email is dancewithalexis@aol.com

I've actually really been into the tucking the ends in lately like the 2nd example you gave...I usually just loop it around and let the ends hang down but I'm into tucking these days, lol.


And I just found your blog and I love it!

Kiki said...

I often do the "hanging scarf" wrap- I have a scarf which is very similar to yours, but gray, rather than the lovely blue you've got. I wish I had yours so I could twist the blue and the gray together for a puffy frothy hanging scarf. It'd be great against a plain white shirt. Or black, I think. Sweet blog!

kimmie said...

Oooh thanks for these! I always tie my scarf in the EXACT SAME WAY. so boring. I really like #3!

Great scarf! All my scarves are really thick, so I usually tie them with the ends hanging down (#4).

I like a weird combination between the Hanging Scarf and Double Loop Scarf...I don't have a name for it.

I'm a Google follower and am about to follow on Twitter if I don't already. Here I go.
