How are the cool people tying their scarfs these days?
Snoods no good if you have a hairdo that can't be messed up, unless of course you put snood on before doing hair & makeup! Or alternatively step into snood, and pull it all the way up over body & clothes.
Scarfwise, it's defo gotta be a wrap twice, and either tie ends or leave loose.
In terms of cool, I notice alot of celebs these days leaving their boots untied or unzipped, so I guess it follows that one's scarf should just be thrown on around neck without any wrapping or tying.......? Just a guess! I am presuming this is in order to suggest that one's social calendar is soo buzzing that there simply isn't time for tying shoelaces/zipping up boots/wrapping & tying scarves
A scarf wrapped any way really has to be better than those furry hoods with ears and long dangly bits that everyone seems to be wearing at the moment. I wrap twice or thee times depending on the scarf.
Jeff, first ever scarf! I have a bit of a thing about scarves, I wear them all the time. I did a stock take a few weeks ago, and am a bit embarrassed to find that I have over 200. To be fair, I have been collecting them since I was a teenager. I am now very old.
Ooh thanks guys, wow that video Mrs and Penfold posted is v. cool! I like that the foldy one I mentioned is called the 'European fold' as if it is totes sophist or whatev. I think my favourite is the 'Mira'. Maybe the best thing to do is to have a massive scarf a la Lenny Kravitz and then you can just fling it over your shoulder like a continental soldier.
