Is it wrap around and tie the ends, or make a loop and put the ends through? Or something else? I NEED to know smile

I wrap around, twice if I can, and tie the ends - but I'm not cool grin

Haha, not listening to you then YDdraig grin

I wrap around twice too, I think looping and pulling the ends through is a bit 2012. wink

DuchessFanny Wed 23-Jan-13 12:45:40

Wrap around as many times as poss! It's cold!

(I am cool wink)

Check out this video for many ways to wear. (Although I forget all but one as soon as I've finished watching it)

You need one of those snood things with no ends - then you can avoid the issue of how to tie it!

ThisLittlePretty Wed 23-Jan-13 14:01:50

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 wink

That is funny as I have the most gorgeous tan heeled ankle boots which are just a tiny bit too tight so I have started wearing them unzipped which is far more comfortable and looks ok too.

I couldn't cope with not wearing them as they r so nice.

Who would have thought that my comfort is now trendy gringrin?

I have just bought my first ever scarf and have no idea how to wear it! so wrap round twice? is that front to the back then blush omg im a grown woman and have never wore a scarf

Mrsap Wed 23-Jan-13 16:42:36

Look at this clip. V useful

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.

Mockingcurl Wed 23-Jan-13 17:01:37

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. grin

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. grin

Just been on a work conference and have always looped and pulled through. All the young 20 something's wrap round though. Have changed my ways,sad but true.

GwendolineMaryLacey Wed 23-Jan-13 20:54:20

Looping is warmer. Wrapping gives you that gap between cleavage and chins

JeffFaFa Wed 23-Jan-13 21:02:06

I know mocking, im quite ashamed at the age of 27 i have never owned a scarf, i now have a lovely cream one, that im struggling to actually fit into my new coat! will check out that link
