Today I'll be sharing some tips with you about how to style and tie scarves. Now, I must say, I am NOT an expert my any means. I have a few tips to share, but I'm including Wendy's Lookbook's Video with 25 Ways to Tie Scarves below, as well as a few ideas from Pinterest too.
- My first tip is to learn a few basic ways to tie a scarf that can be your go-to ways to tie. Other than infinity scarves this is my favorite way to tie a scarf, in the first two pictures below I've tied it this way, I just shifted it to the side with the floral scarf for a different look.
- My second tip is to use your scarf as a simple way to pattern mix. If you'd love to try this trend, but are nervous, a scarf is a great place to start. Try leopard with stripes, or a a print. This look can really make your outfit stand out and it keep it looking forgettable.
- Basic bold colored scarves are great and super versatile. In the winter these tend to take the place of necklaces frequently. Work to color coordinate your scarf with your outfit, or add a cool pop of color in a complimentary color.
- I am a huge fan of infinity scarves as I feel like they are a not hassle way to wear scarves, but not every great scarf is an infinity scarf. To make any scarf an infinity one, simply tie the ends together like this and voila, an instant infinity scarf. I use this trick all the time!
Here's Wendy's awesome video to show how to tie your scarf 25 different ways. Mind. Blown.
Here's another great resource for ideas on how to tie your scarf too, the ideas are endless!
On another note, last summer I did a post on knowing and dressing for your body type and it was a great success. I'd like to expand on it and I need your help. I really only gave outfit ideas for a rectangle, because that's what I am. Here's my pitch: Are you hourglass, pear, apple, or triangle shaped? Send me a picture of you in all black (with or without your face) if I get more than one of each body type I'll choose at random. Then I'll create Polyvore sets for you and others with your body type as outfit inspiration, as well as tips to best utilize your best qualities. I plan to do this as part of my Tuesday how-to series. If interested email me here.
