Six Ways To Style A Scarf

Happy Sunday Beauties!

I received this lovely two sided scarf by Gabriela Rose as a gift from the Boyfriend for Christmas. One side has a beautiful silk pattern fabric while the other side has 100% wool in a plain colour, just how I like my accessories, bright and colourful. The scarf came with buttons and button holes at strategic places to allow diverse styles. The scarf also came with a style guide. For today’s post, I recreated some the styles in that style guide in my own way. Some of these styles can be done with any regular scarf. I have written a step by step for each outcome. See them below;

The Opera
This is an elegant look that’ll work well over a cocktail or evening dress.

P1290386 - scarf

  • Establish the position of the button holes facing out & fold the contrast to create the collar with the left side shorter than the other.
  • Take the buttonhole on the shorter side and fasten on the top button of the opposite outer side.
  • Fasten the belt over your waist region
  • Arrange the wrap accordingly making sure a V shape is created  beneath the belt.

 

The Classic Rose
 Add a touch of sophistication to your cocktail or evening dress with this style.

P1290413 - scarf

  • Establish the position of the button holes facing out & fold the contrast to create the collar withe left side shorter than the other.
  • Take the button hole on the shorter side and fasten to the opposite top button on the inner side.
  • Fasten on the top button over your shoulder on the outer opposite side.
  • Re-arrange so that the fabric makes the angled diagonal line across your chest.

 

The Tailored Rose
Create the illusion of a jacket with this style. Dress it up or down to suit your taste.

P1290392 - scarf

  • Establish the position of the button holes facing out & fold the contrast to create the collar with two equal lengths.
  • Place belt around your waist and fasten in the middle.
  • Adjust the reverse contrasting side of the wrap to give the illusion of an extended collar and the impression of a jacket.

 

The Bolero
Don’t want to show too much skin, cover up your shoulders with this style. Perfect over a strapless top or dress.

P1290389 - scarf

  • Establish the position of the button holes facing out & fold the contrast to create the collar with two equal lengths.
  • Take the buttonhole from the left side and take the lowest button of the button of the opposite side.
  • Fasten at the back.
  • Arrange the collar to sit attractively at the front.

 

The Rose
Keep your neck warm with this style.

P1290401 - scarf

  • Fold the wrap length-ways ensuring the button holes are on the top and the left side is double the length of the right side.
  • Take longer length and wrap it around the neck, making sure you end up with two equal lengths.
  • Take one end of the wrap and loop it up and under the middle collar
  • Take the other end now and loop it the exact way as the other side
  • Arrange the contrast lining so that you have the bottom piece hangs uniformly.

 

The Hood
Off to the temple, church or the mosque. Be effortlessly chic while you keep your hair covered.

P1290423 - scarf

  • Place the scarf across your head with the contrast panel on the outside
  • Adjust till both sides have equal lengths.
  • Take buttonhole on the right side and fasten to second top button on your left.
  • Arrange till you’re satisfied with the wrap.

Which style do you like best. A scarf is one of those fashion accessories you can wear all year round. Since it’ll be spring in a few months, don’t put away your lovely scarves just yet. You can check out the scarf I used in today’s post here.
