Addicted to Scarves

In every season, on any given day I can be found wearing a scarf.

They keep me snug in the winter, and comfortable in the air-conditioned months…they match any outfit, and fit in any purse…they make the best travel companion, and the perfect souvenir…but best of all they fit any size, and any age. In short they’re perfection.

There are lots of different scarfs out there, and plenty of different ways to fold them, here are 3 of my trustworthy faves:

No. 1 We’ll call this fold the ‘loop-da-loop’ (because I don’t know the official name). This fold was all the range at the beginning off the 2000’s, and popular on both men and women. This fold works best on a thicker, chunkier scarfs, and ranks highest on the warmth scale!

No.2 This next one I’m naming the ‘cross-over knot’. This is a great fold for any scarf , but especially a thin pashmina type. Looks great with a little jacket, or even just a tee. Great for summer months.

No.3 This fold I named the ‘double decker’ because it’s basically just layering the ‘cross-over knot’ fold. This fold is fun to mix and match a couple of different coloured scarfs for different looks. It’s great for traveling… just keep adding more scarfs to depending how cold you are!

Here’s a quick how-to video:

    Oh my gosh, thanks for posting this. I was just lamenting the fact that I only know how to tie a scarf one way. And you always look so chic when you wear one.

    I love the loop-da-loop. That is how I wear my wool knit scarves. I purchased some thin scarves but never liked how they looked as a loop-da-loop. I would like to try the cross-over knot. I’m sure that would make a big difference. Thanks for the tip!
