In case you hadn't noticed by now, I love scarves! At the moment I have 46 vintage ones. I started collecting scarves because one of my favourite vintage stores has a gigantic bin of 2 for $4.99 scarves, which is the only thing I can afford to buy every time that I go in to look around and don't want to leave without buying anything.
I'm starting a campaign to bring scarves back- they're pretty, practical and cheap. A scarf can add pizazz to any outfit, whether it be carefully selected and ironed the night before, or whatever one grabs off the floor in the morning while running late. Scarves are also the most versatile of accessories due to various ways you can tie them. Which is why I'm introducing a new blog series which will run every fortnight.
The above picture is how I tie my scarf the vast majority of the days when I wear a scarf.
- Lay a medium-sized square scarf out flat.
- Loosely gather and pick up the scarf lengthways.
- Hold one end of the scarf securely while taking the other end of the scarf and giving it a couple of loose twists.
- Holding the ends carefully, place the scarf around your neck and off to one side.
- Secure with scarf clip and fluff the ends of the scarf.
