Happy Monday! As I mentioned in my last post, I wanted to share this blog on how to tie your blanket scarf. I had so many ideas, but I narrowed them down to my four favorite ways to wear a them. Scarves, specifically the blanket scarf, is one of my favorite Fall accessories, and I strongly believe that you can’t possibly have too many. They are cozy and warm, and extremely versatile. So, I am giving you step by step instructions how to tie them differently, so you can wear one everyday and still change things up! I made up the style names, because to my knowledge, they don’t have official names for scarf-tying styles. Read on to see how I style/tie/wrap my scarves, and shop my favorite blanket scarves here:
Jumping right in, the first way to tie a blanket scarf I call The Keyhole. This scarf can be either square or rectangle, I prefer a rectangle for this tie. First, fold the blanket scarf in half end to end.
Next, place the scarf around your neck with both ends even.
Reach through the end with the fold and grab both of the loose ends.
Finally, pull the loose ends through the fold, and adjust for volume.
The next tie style we have is The Bandana Tie. This is a really trendy one now, since square scarves have become extremely popular. (PS I got this scarf in my FabFitFun box!)
You will need a square blanket scarf for this tie.
Fold the scarf diagonally, so you make a triangle.
Holding each end with the fold across the top, and the other point in the middle, bring the center of the fold up to your neck and wrap the two ends around.
It will feel a bit backwards since you traditionally tie scarves by wrapping from the back.
Personally, I can’t skip The Traditional Tie, because that is how I usually wear my scarves. This tie will require a rectangular, more traditional scarf.
Start with the blanket scarf, hanging from your neck. Make one end longer than the other.
Wrap the longer end around your neck and pull around to the other side.
Adjust to make sure your ends are about even, and make sure the right side of your reversible scarf is showing!
Finally, possibly the most comfortable tie, I think, is the Faux Infinity Tie. I love burrowing into the scarf and cozying up in the winter. I also like this one because you don’t have to worry about extra ends hanging down, which comes in handy when I’m out with the dogs.
You’ll start out the same as The Traditional Tie, with the scarf around your neck unevenly.
Wrap the scarf around as you did with the Traditional Tie as well.
Last, you will continue to wrap each end and tuck them under the rest of the scarf, hidden and out-of-the-way to create this cute and cozy Faux Infinity Scarf look.
