Gorgeous New Scarf Trick!

My sis-in-law Naomi (remember her as a Lady Wrap Star?) posted this super cool wrapping style she created yesterday, and I just HAD to try it!  I wanted an simple around-the-house-doing-work style for today, and this one is as easy as she makes it sound… and guess what – I’m not wearing a shaper/volumizer!  Just a scrunchy!

Here are her instructions on how to do it!
Take one long, lightweight rectangle. Tie at the nape of the neck (ends hanging at equal length. Tie a series of 4 single loose knots with the ends. Wrap up and over the bun. Takes two minutes, looks so complicated!!
Just make sure you use a really long scarf so that even after the knots you still have long enough ends to go all the way over the bun and tuck in.  For a shorter scarf maybe 3 knots would be better 🙂

Thanks Naomi for the inspiration!!  Here is a shot of her wearing it (with a longer scarf so therefore tighter knots and a shaper/volumizer underneath.)  See how tiny little “details” change the whole look?  Imagine with a sparkly scarf – it could even be formal wear!

New Scarf, Easy Style

I was wearing a grey skirt and mauve shirt… what scarf could possibly match?  For some reason, I dug through my “give-away” pile of scarves, and uncovered this beauty, which matched my outfit perfectly!  I think that I had it pegged to give away because it is a little dark for my skin tone… but still!  It was almost *too* perfect in terms of matching, know what I mean?  Anyway, I tied a simple long scarf bun with it and added a small pin;  Does anyone want a tutorial on how to tie a bun with a long scarf?

*~Twisty Flowers ~*

Today I tried a new twist on the classic long scarf bun:

 

I did a basic long scarf bun (see how: here), and twisted the end around.  Instead of tucking the final end in under the bun, I tucked it into the actual twist, leaving the end hanging, and adding a flower pin.  Voila!

THE Simplest Long Scarf Wrap!

Ok – this one is for when you are pressed on time but still want to look awesome!  The wrap is almost the exact same as the “Royal Twist”, except… no twist!  This works with all kinds of long scarves… thick, thin, longer, shorter, silk, wool, textured, smooth, solid, or patterned.  This is my current go-to wrap, and can be done super fancy or casual, depending on the scarf you choose.  Enjoy and happy easy wrapping!
