Four cool ways to wear a scarf

Since scarf weather shows no signs of slowing down, we might as well try and think of new ways to wear them. And since you’ve all asked to see more of my Mom, here she is yet again. Two words for you: scene stealer.

The French Knot

Tie around your neck twice and double knot it. Voila! You’re an instant francophile.

The Bowtie

You’ll need a longer cotton or silk scarf to tie this look on. Tie it around you neck just as you would your shoelaces. You can keep it tighter against the neck or a little bit looser a la Debbie Serino.

The Shrug

Your neck isn’t the only place where you can rock a scarf. For this look you’ll need a pashmina style. Wrap it around your shoulders as you’d normally wear it but bring it under your arms and knot it at the back.

The Rhoda

My Mother and I share an obsession with this 70’s sitcom and Rhoda was rocking a headscarf before anyone else. Don’t you all forget it. This is a great way to keep you ears warm and hide a bad hair day. Win, win!

And if you haven’t had enough, see more of my Mom here. Oh and here too.
