Scarf Tying 102: Easy, Frugal & Fabulous

Jan13

It’s no secret from this Frugal Fashionista that I love scarves, but many people are afraid to experiment with them since finding ways to wear scarves creatively can seem intimidating.

In a previous video, I shared a variety of really simple ways to tie a scarf, and today, I’m taking you one step further. This is one of my favorite styles. You know the kind that when you see people wearing it, it seems so elegantly complicated, but the reality of how to tie this scarf is so simple.

Wanting to keep the video short and sweet, I stopped it when everything in me wanted to show you the other styles, but I will return with additional ways to tie scarves. On the video I said, “tomorrow.” Oops, that will probably not happen. I also said “fun” more times that any one person should say it in two minutes, but that probably goes along with the theme for the day. Can you see that I was in the middle of getting my Christmas things down when I decided to do this video? Yes, my mind jumps around like that. :)

Now go experiment and have fun wearing your scarf today. It’s cold outside, so bundle up and be fashionable at the same time. If you’re reading this by email, watch the scarf tying video here.

(And yes, I’m working on getting a new video camera. Bare with the amateur photography, but my 11 year old does do a fabulous job regardless of the video. :))

  2. Loving your scarf tying techniques. I have long admired other people’s ability to pull off the scarf look, but it wasn’t until I visited NYC and learned the first part of today’s tutorial that I was able to do it myself. These days I am enjoying one of the looks from your last tutorial. Keep those ideas coming!

  8. Thanks Jen! I needed an update. I love scarves and I wear them all the time. I have actually had to add a special place in my closet to hang all my scares. :-)

  9. Thanks or the tips..I’ve just started using scarves. I didn’t wear them before because I didn’t know how to wear them appropriately. Now I’ll buy more scarves after watching your tutorials:) Happy Friday:)

  10. Great visual explanation! I’ve never thought to do that extra tuck…I have just done the basic “pull through.” Thanks for the extra idea!

  11. I’ve had a love affair with scarves for 25 years. My husband of 22 years still smiles and shares the story of his first impression of me, my scarf, and how he fell in love at first sight. That scarf still hangs in my closet!
    Many of my friends and family love the look but feel intimidated by scarves. I think they make fabulous gifts so I like to tuck in a note with my gift that includes a website for ideas on how to pull off the perfect look! Always a hit…..
    Thanks for all the great ideas!
