How To Tie a Scarf?

In a recent post, I got a comment telling me how much they liked the way I tied my scarf and asking that PPMeow! do a tutorial post on how to tie scarves.

Ask and you shall receive friends!!! 🙂

Spring is the perfect time to bring light-weight, bright scarfs into your wardrobe and outfit choices.   Not only are they fashionable, they are functional too as it’s still cold and breezy out keeping the delicate area of the neck covered will help keep the rest of you warm.

I’ve put together a collection of helpful resources I’ve used/refer to when I want to give an outfit a new look, to dress up your outfit  or to simply  add some pizzazz with a scarf.

I personally have Three “go-to” knots for the scarves I wear:

1.  The Giant Bow

There is really nothing to this scarf-tying technique.  Simply drape the scarf around your neck (keeping it as long and both sides as even as possible), then criss-cross the two pieces into a bow as you would your shoelaces.  You can keep the bow small…or fluff out each side of creating a larger puffy bow like I did above 🙂

 

2.  The Side Braid

Now this one is a bit more tricky …leaving me to usually have to re-watch the YouTube vid once again, before wearing my own scarf like this.  So I’m including the vid for y’all 🙂

Once tied, you can simply lift it over your head and keep braid in-tact.  This way you have one always ready-to-go with this clever braid-tied-technique to save you time.  Just saying’ 😉

 

 3.  The Fancy Knot

For much of the winter months, this was my scarf-knot of choice.  It works really well with thicker, bulkier scarves …. but using light-weight ones work as well, just keep the knot nice and loose, and it’ll look great!
