Ahhh the scarf – it’s a fashionista’s BFF all year round but especially in these chillier of months. With London Fashion Week around the corner and outfit planning for the shows we’re attending on our minds, we know that this staple piece will be part of our arsenal of accessories to style up our OOTD’s! But there are so many MORE ways to rock this much loved must-have than simply slinging around our necks to add a bit of sassitude to our look. Click this way fillies and let us show you some new ways to use our fave accessory!
First things first you need to locate yourself a fabulous scarf! We selected this longline leopard lovely (Because you can’t go wrong with this print in our opinion – it’s basically a neutral right? Right!) from our go to accessories site, Lylia Rose, as they have an amazing allsortment of delights at equally amazing prices. We mean, this utterly #FashionDuJourable piece is only £8.99! SAT WHATTTT?! We adore their selection of great pieces that add that little bit of lush to any outfit leaving plenty of money left over…to buy more great pieces! F.A.B.ulous. Be sure to add it to your bookmarked list now.
So you’ve nabbed your stylish scarf? Well, it’s time to learn some new ways to wear it, which are probably the easiest little hacks ever. Let’s go!
NO.1 – LOOP DE LOOP:
This is super simple but simply super! Double your scarf in half and then drape it around your neck. Grab the looped end and put your hand through it, grabbing the other ends of the scarf. Pull the end through the loop and et voila…a easy breezy way to wear that won’t come undone!
NO. 2 – ALL SNOOD:
We are big fans of a snood here at Fashion Du Jour HQ. It makes for an effortless way of wearing without running the risk of loose ends unravelling whilst trotting about the town. With this super easy tip you can make ANY long scarf into a snood in seconds. Taking the scarf horizontally, knot together the top left side corner to the top right side corner and repeat the same with the bottom corners. You will now have fashioned a loo. Place the loop over your head, with the knots at the back, then loop again and there you go – you are snood to go!
NO. 3 – YO KIMONO:
Now ladies, gird your loins as we are about to drop you a tip so crazy good, it may just blow your mind. Prepare for the knowledge bomb!!! Leigh discovered this styling secret on her travels to Dubai (why not read all about it on our guest blog for the Chic Blog) and it doubled her wardrobe options. Yes, you can create a handy little throw-over kimono in just a few knots! Take your scarf longways, grab one end and tie the short left hand corner to the short hand corner then do the same at the other end. Slip your arms through the “sleeves” you have fashioned and hey presto! You have yourself a little cover up for a night out or a day on the beach.
