Tips for Wearing a Scarf

Sep 21, 2011

I own several scarves in different patterns and colors.  However, I only really wear one scarf on a regular basis, my ivory LoveQuotes scarf from Tobi.  It’s so universal, it just translates into practically every facet of my wardrobe.  

Recently, I started receiving “Ask Belle’s” from readers who were looking for tips on how to wear and tie scarves.  Honestly, I just wrap them, fold them and fluff them until I’m happy with how it looks.  If you need a bit more direction, check out the diagram below.  And if you want to save 20% on a LoveQuotes scarf from Tobi, click on the button in the sidebar and use the code Capitol20 at check out.

    Hi Belle, I'm in the DC area and new to your site. I just bought my first scarf over the weekend so this is RIGHT on time. Thanks and keep up the fabulous work!

    Thanks! I think some of the trick is figuring out how to wear it for you so you look uhm… European, or sophisticated, or something like that… and not like someone's Great-Grandma.

    Do you find length to make a difference? I've tried to get some from Target or a place like that just to experiment and get comfortable. I'm thinking I need to try some things in a silky fabric instead of cotton to get some of the bulk down. I've noticed a lot of the cheaper scarves have long tassels. I was thinking of cutting them off an hemming them since the tassels add to a “cheap” look to me.

The Find: A Striped Tee

Without question, the most worn item in my wardrobe is a black-and-white striped tee. I wear it in winter under sweaters, in spring with white jeans, in summer with black shorts. I’ve been wearing the same one for years (it’s the best). But they don’t make it anymore. So here are some options for replacement.
