Come rain or shine, slipping a lightweight fashion scarf around your neck will instantly lift your outfit to another level. Whether you’re chilling out in your off-duty sweats and tee combo, or need something to throw over seductive shoulders, add an edge with a perfectly tied scarf from our Suzy Levian collection https://suzylevian.com/
A scarf is without a doubt one of the simplest yet chicest of accessories. It can also be a standpoint, being the focal point of an outfit, for example, shearing a bright, colorful scarf with an all-black dress.
There are so many different ways to tie a scarf. If you’re looking for a different approach to tie your scarf, here are three ideas to get you started:
The French Knot
- Fold the scarf to form a triangle. Roll it in a "hot dog" style until you get to the end.
- Drape scarf over your shoulders.
- Wrap ends around your neck and back in front again.
- Tie ends together.
The Parisian Bandana
- Fold the scarf half diagonally.
- This step will depend on how large you want the "triangle" part of your scarf. If you have a square scarf, you can move on to step three. If your scarf is larger than a small square, continue with this step. You can roll the edge in a "hot dog" style. Start by rolling the longest edge of your scarf and keep rolling until the end. Don’t roll the scarf to the corner–stop halfway through. Keep in mind where you stop will determine how large the "bandana" portion will be. You should now have a long rectangular roll with a triangle at the end.
- Tie the ends together. You can leave them hanging, or you can tie into a knot. Depending on your preference, you can tie the ends over the bandana, or under it. Leave them hanging out, or you can tuck the loose ends underneath the triangular portion of the bandana for a cleaner look. There’s no wrong way to do it– it just depends on what you’re going for, and, how much of your scarf you’d like to show off!
- Place the scarf loosely around your neck, so one end hangs much lower than the other, to form a loop.
- Pull the long end across your chest and tuck it into the loop around your neck on the opposite side.
- Fluff the two layers together. The loose corner should hang down in the center to form a chic kerchief style.
