How I wear a scarf



After I slipped off my scarf last night, I threw it down on the bed and photographed it.  This is the way I wear a scarf about 90% of the time...


Very simple:

  1. bias fold
  2. tie a knot about 8 inches up from one of the ends of the scarf.  You can move the knot up or down depending on how you'd like to wear the scarf
  3. pull the loose end of the scarf through the knot
  4. look at the scarf and decide which side looks better to the front
  5. slip over your head, and go
Just toss it on and wear it.  This isn't rocket science, nor origami - it's just a lovely piece of silk you're using as a surrogate piece of jewelry.  Don't over-analyze the tying process.

  4. Thank you for the tip...I am always scarf tying challenged.

    How did you manage, though, yesterday wearing a scarf in the nearly 100 degree weather? My son works in Chicago and tells me it was miserable.....

    Thank you for your lovely blog!

    1. I'm inside all day, in an air-conditioned office. That's one of the reasons that this knot is so handy - if I go outdoors and the scarf is too warm, I can just slip it off and wrap it around the handle of my purse!

  5. I wear my scarves like you do most of the time. This is the classic tie the Hermes clerk used when I bought my first of many scarves. Hermes usually pops in a scarf tying book too in case you need inspiration on how to wear them after you leave the store.
    I'd like to see your scarf opened up, perhaps you'll consider showing it another time.
