Tying a silk scarf around the neck can complete an outfit, whether it is rolled up and tied like an ascot or simply folded in half and worn as a bandanna. Add a silk scarf to an outfit with advice from a fashion magazine editor-in-chief in this free video on style accessories.
Hello, my name is Summer Bellessa with Eliza Magazine, and I'm here to show you how to tie a silk scarf. Really, the only thing you're going to need is a silk scarf. And, there's a ton of different ways that you can tie one, you can be creative and there's no really wrong way to tie your silk scarf. However, I'm going to show you two ways, two of the most traditional and popular ways to tie a scarf, right now. The first one, we're going to take your scarf and fold it in half. Then, you're going to fold that half into another half, and then you're going to fold it, one more time, into a half. And, you can obviously do it a few more times, or if you have less time, you, if want to bigger, if you want to wrap up, around your head. So, it's up to you, the thickness that you want it. And then, you're just going to wrap it around your neck and tie it in a knot, like that. You can also double knot it so it stays a little bit better. And, you can wear to the side, like that, so that's the first one. The second way to tie your scarf, you start again, with the just folded in half ones. And then, wrap it around your neck like you're a robber, put down a little bit. You're going to bring the two sides forward and tie a double knot. This is the second one, which works alone or works with a jacket. Here we also have one more way, that if you don't have the traditional square, and you have more of a long one, you can tie it just in a regular, traditional bow. So, have fun with your scarf, and tie it any way that you like, you can be creative. My name is Summer Bellessa, and that is how to tie a silk scarf.
