Another Way To Tie A Scarf
I love scarves. I love accessorizing, either with a hat or with a scarf. However, for a long time, I wasn't quite sure how to wear a scarf. Sounds kinda ridiculous, right? Well, it is true, none the less. I did the normal wrap-around-your-neck twice wearing, but that quickly failed me as I choked myself or it would eventually wriggle out of my not-so-fancy wearing and be on the ground. Then, I learned the loop-n-through - where you just make a loop, slip it through the hole and call it good. That's still definitely an old stand-by and favorite. But, I'm making my way into fancier scarf-tying. Seriously, it shouldn't be as tough as it is for me, but that's the way it is.
Anyway, recently I got a great deal on a bunch of scarves and found myself in the predicament of trying to figure out how to wear them differently. Not that I necessarily had to - but I wanted to. Here is one of the new ones I tried today.
There are 6 different ways to tie scarves on this one image, but I couldn't get them all in the screen to take a screen shot of it, so to see the rest of them, check out this image. But be warned, most of the images use less-then-current looks, so it's not the prettiest of examples. But that's ok. :)
Anyway, this is the way I wanted to tie my scarf this time. I've always been so envious of people who can put scarves together and make them look fashionable and fluffy and mine just kinda...hang. Once I tried this, I was pumped!! I went to my mom's work and showed off my new tying abilities and said "Doesn't it look great?! Now I can be cool like everyone else!" Just kidding. But seriously, I really liked the way it looked.
Tie little tiny knots in both ends of your scarf so that they are connected and make an infinity scarf kind of look. So, it'll look like this.
Then proceed with the other steps listed above. I tried to take a picture of each step, but doing it on my own was just too hard. Maybe this could be a vlog that I do eventually so it can hopefully make more sense visually.
Either way, the end result was pretty cute, in my opinion.
However, I discovered when I tried to re-create this (so I could photo-document each step), it was a whole lot harder. Maybe it was just beginners luck... Oh well, I will try again sometime. It's too cute of a look not to!
There you have it, a new way to wear a scarf that is simple and cute and fun and hip and cool.
