I've always liked scarves because of their high coziness factor which gives them an undeniable edge over pearls, gold necklaces, and other neck adornments when the weather cools. They are also a great way to sass up a basic outfit without breaking the bank. Since I'm planning on taking a 3-week trip to Southeast Asia this coming January with my cousins (we just bought our tickets on Wednesday!), I plan on taking full advantage of their low-cost, snazzifying effects all season.
For a long time, the scarves I owned all looked pretty much the same: long and skinny. Then, for my birthday this year, my cousin Nathalie gifted me with this full-size scarf. I love the repeating horse print, but was a little intimidated by its size. But after a few awkward attempts, I finally got it to tie in a nice drapey manner.
Step 1: Fold in half.
Step 2: Fold in half again, on the diagonal. It's okay if it's messy. Unstructured is in.
Step 3: Pull the ends back and to one side.
Step 4: Tie the ends into a side knot.
How do you wear your biggest scarves?
