A couple of days ago I showed you how to turn a long scrap of fabric into a scarf by simply hemming the edges. If you missed the tutorial, take a peak here. The thing I love about scarves is that they’re so versatile! Here are 5 different ways to style a long narrow scarf:
1- Around your neck! (Pictured above.) Perhaps the most obvious way to wear a scarf is around your neck and there are heaps of ways to do it. Knotted once, not knotted at all, wrapped around twice, tied in a bow, secured with a pretty brooch – play around with different ideas to see what works with your outfit.
2- A variation on wearing a scarf around your neck is to tie it in a bow under your collar. I love this look because it dresses up a simple shirt. You can see another version of this styling technique here.
3- Narrow scarves are great for tying in your hair. There are heaps of different ways to do this, depending on your hairstyle. Here I have tied it loosely around my head, then tied it around my messy side ponytail (gotta love the side pony) and left the ends loose.
4- Wear it as a belt! Narrow scarves can be looped through the belt loops of your favourite skirt or pants. Depending on the length of your scarf and the look you want you can either knot it and leave the ends loose, or tie it in a bow.
5- Tie it in a big bow on your handbag! This is a great way to dress up your bag if you have a printed scarf containing similar colours to your outfit. I also use this technique sometimes when the weather is unpredictable. I might start off the day wearing a scarf around my neck and when the day warms up I take the scarf off and tie it around my bag.
What’s your favourite way of wearing a scarf?
