No matter the season, no matter the trends, certain things are always stylish. Yes, I am speaking of scarves. There are a variety of inventive and modern ways to don a scarf these days, but I shall skip over the basics and focus on my three favorites.
The first is to sport a scarf on the ‘ol noggin. Pictured here, you can see how fun and stylish this look is. Simply fold a scarf large enough to fit around your head into a triangle. To make a triangle you lay a square scarf on a flat surface and fold it so that the top right hand corner will lie on the bottom left hand corner. You then put the base of the triangle across your forehead and then tie the two ends behind your head and over all your hair. Be sure the point of the triangle that is opposite the base of the triangle is tucked underneath the knot. This can be worn on anyone with the guts, but looks best on someone with a good-sized forehead.
I, with my miniscule forehead, sport it anyways. I must admit though, I don’t look all that awesome. In order for it to stay on my gourd (head) I have to lower it so far as to cover my eyebrows. I end up running around looking like Whoopi Goldberg, (she has no eyebrows, why no one ever speaks of this I am clueless), god love her.
Another fabulous way is using a large or small scarf to tie around the bicep. Pictured here you can see I simply rolled up a large square scarf and tied it at the thinnest point of my upper arm and let the tails of it dangle. You can also use a handkerchief to create this look. I must add though that the wearing of the scarf on your bicep is not recommended for someone who is really ripped or is concerned about the size of their arms.
And yet another fabulous way has been inspired by Alchemy, a brand based in New York and available online. I am currently sporting their extra-large triangle, silk scarf around my neck, pictured here. I simply take the pointed edges and tie them around my neck and let the longest point rest down my torso.
You can do this with any large square scarf, but Alchemy took the work out of it and provides luxury scarves already made into a triangle. They are not limited to this style though and market to both genders. They have all kinds of sizes, fabrics, and shapes including good old fashion square ones.
