It’s no secret that scarves are an essential for any well-rounded autumn wardrobe. They’re an easy way to add color while looking put-together and overall fabulous. Finding the perfect scarf to compliment an outfit is easy – styling it to achieve its (and your outfit’s) full potential is no simple task.
Like so many fashion staples, scarves come in many different shapes and sizes – each holding the power to turn your outfit into a look. In our series, Scarf Tying 101, we’ll teach you tips and tricks from our crack team of super-tyers. We start with the pashmina (namely, our Street Market Pashmina). Pashminas are larger, rectangular, and generally made of a silky fabric that shares its name. Here’s how we get the look that graces the pages ModCloth.com:
Check out our step by step video!
1. Grab the pashmina at opposite corners.
2. Starting with the middle of the scarf in front of you, pull each corner around, behind your head.
3. Pull each corner back around to the front. Tie a knot slightly to one side. This will add shape!
4. Adjust as needed.
If you don’t get it the first time, don’t worry! Re-draping a pashmina is simple.
1. Take the scarf off without untying the knot.
2. Starting with the middle of the scarf in front of you, pull the knot behind your head.
3. Twist the scarf, and pull the knot back over your head.
4. Rest the knot to one side; adjust as needed.
Here’s another great way to wear a pashmina without the trials and tribulations of knot tying:
Step #1: Hold the pashmina in the middle, with the scarf folded in half.
Step #2: Wrap the scarf around, behind your head.
Step #3: Pull the loose ends of the scarf (on one side) through the loop (on the other side)
Step #4: Adjust as needed.
We hope this was helpful! We’ll be back next week with the next installment of Scarves 101; and as always, happy shopping!
