Scarf Styling

February 26, 2013 | My Jottings

bajalia-saleha-striped-afghan-scarf-d-20120809171519333~202696Today will be a day of report writing. So I’m going to share one of my favorite youtube videos, and you’ll have to let me know if you’ve seen it. I guess it’s pretty popular, but I’m often the oblivious caboose on the Trendy Train, so perhaps there will be a few of you who haven’t seen it.

I love colorful scarves, and how they dress up the most casual outfit. A pair of jeans and a tee-shirt look so much more stylish and interesting when a beautiful scarf is added, don’t you think?

I’m not very much into lots of clothes and the latest fashions — comfort and utility are my unfortunate bywords in this arena. So you probably won’t see many posts like this one, but I’m guessing those of you who stop by aren’t here for fashion tips.  🙂

But I think this video is unique and well-done. I do wear scarves now and then, and my favorite way to tie a long scarf — I learned right here.  It’s called Magic Trick.

After you watch the 4.5 minute video, will you share what your favorite scarf-tying technique was?

Have a blessed Tuesday!

    Thanks for sharing Julie ~ I have just recently been wearing scarves. Not much “need” here in So Cal, but I am trying to be a little more imaginative in my clothes choices. Like you, I am a T-Shirt and jeans kind of gal!

    I hear you, Tauni. I see plenty of people who wear light, flowy scarves when it’s warm out too. But 90 degrees and above? That would be a no, right? xxoo

    Scarfs ??? We guys don’t wear ’em. At least not out in sunny California. Although it has (for us anyway) been rather chilly here. How ’bout 45 last night Julie? That would be shirt sleeve weather for you guys up there.

    But I’ll bet that the material yours is made from was made from Sharon’s beautiful yarns. The one in your picture is pretty. xoxo

    Hi Steve, Lots of men wear scarves here! Maybe not for fashion, but around their necks in the winter. I made one for Michael, and both my sons-in-law wear them. I do like to see scarves in Sharon’s yarns. The one in my photo was made by a dear friend named Kay. She used Sharon’s yarn, so the gift was a double blessing. xxoo

    Yep. Luuurve scarves. Great clip. I usually just drap & hook ~ though in winter I have been known to wear my scarf as a covering as well. lol 🙂
