Say what you will about the French, they know three things better than anyone else: wine, ballet, and fashion. Little wonder then, that French design house St Honore sets the bar when it comes to designing the hottest selection of scarves. With the arrival of Old Man Winter, now is the time to find the perfect scarf to see you through the cold season. With the right scarf tying techniques, you can stay warm and look fabulous throughout the winter months. What follows are suggestions for some popular ways to tie a scarf. I have also included this fantastic video from Wendy's Lookbook showing 25 ways to tie a scarf.
The Muffler is the ideal tie for snow days.
It keeps you covered in a stylish, exotic way. Did we mention that it goes on and off with ease in four simple steps?
1 Fold a long rectangular scarf in half, length-wise, to create a square.
2 Take one corner to the mid-point of the opposite side so that it forms a near- overlapping triangle.
3 Pull the two ends of the triangle over the nape of your neck, tying the ends of the scarf to secure it.
4 Fluff out the front triangles to increase the volume of the scarf.
The Braided Knot is a fantastic technique for turning an ordinary scarf into an extraordinary accessory.
The multiple knots create a sophisticated braid effect that will wow your friends and co-workers.
1 Pull a long rectangular scarf around the nape of your neck, leaving both sides to hang down the front.
2 Tie the ends of the scarf together, creating several knots down the length of the scarf. Start knotting from about 1 to 2 inches below your collarbone.
3 The best stylists know that there is beauty in symmetry. Build a symmetrical pattern by tying your knots in a parallel and equidistant manner.
So hot, it was spied on fashionista Ashley Olsen, out on one of her daily errands.
The Turtleneck Wrap is great for women who hate loose ends
Choose a light weight silk or silk-wool blend to avoid being caught in a chokehold!
1 Place a long rectangular scarf over the nape of your neck.
2 Take each end of the scarf and wrap it around, until it covers the entire neck. Take care to keep it loose and comfortable. Don't rely on the old canard that fashion equals pain... or asphyxiation.
3 Keep it tidy by tucking in the ends of the scarf so they won't be visible.
