Wearing a Scarf Like a Frenchwoman

• 11 June 2010

It's never out-of-season to wear a little scarf...even in the Spring and Summer. They are not only wonderful accessories, but very functional as well. You never know when you'll be stuck in an over-air conditioned building for an extended period of time (this happened to me last night--I was so grateful to have a scarf in my purse) or when you'll need a little something to ward off a slight chill in the evening.

My friend Ellie, who owns an adorable boutique in Beynac, showed me a new way of wearing my scarves last year. I tried to figure out how to share the method with you for the past several months, but didn't think straight images would do it justice. So last month when we there with our friends, I borrowed Paula's Flip camera and videoed how it's done...for the sole purpose of sharing it with you today. Enjoy!

A friend showed me how to wear my scarves like this a few months ago and women stop me all the time to ask how I've arranged my scarf like that. I'm always finding myself standing in line at Target showing women how to tie their scarves, ha! Now I can just send them to your blog :-) Thanks for sharing!

My friend Joanne taught me this last year - I LOVE wearing them like this!

Finally! The great mystery is revealed. I've always ended up walking the streets of Paris with my head down in shame, looking hopelessly American with a frustrated scarf thrown messily around my neck. (Okay, something tells me that wasn't the only giveaway as to my American-ness...)

This is fantastic! Thanks! I am traveling and it is freezing cold and scarves are a must. Can't wait to try this today!

This tutorial is excellent. I like it much more than the one posted on the "French Women Don't Get Fat" website.

BTW, it's really nice to hear your gentle & sweet voice. I'd wondered what you sound like.

Oh THANK you! I've been asking for years how to wear a scarf. I just don't know how to tie it, so I never wear them. This is so fun!

OK, now can you do a post on great summer/spring scarves...I'm completely lost when it comes to what to buy :)

Andrea said...

Okay, I love this! I don't usually wear scarves because I'm never sure how to arrange them. I'm excited to give this technique a try. Thanks!
