Spicyy Scarves

We're all wishing for snow, but even if it's not snowing this is Seattle. Seattle = freezing rain. Most of us have already discovered scarves, but really, you don't HAVE to just wrap it around your neck and leave the ends hanging out like that. Just because your mother taught you how to do that, doesn't mean you can't try different ways of tying scarves :]

THE BASIC.












UrbanOutfitters

One-Loop








ae.


"Hankerchief" style












UrbanOutfitters

Eternity or Never-ending scarf.












UrbanOutfitters

Bunched-Up










AmericanApparel

Shawl












Nordstroms

These are just some [basic] options. Tie, twist, cut, sew, dye, etc. your scarf in any way you want to!


Other Tips: Scarves with extra beading/fringe, different material (like silk/satin), can both stand out and blend in without looking bland, depending on how you wear it. It's easy to add your own edges (specialty ribbons/fringes available at the local Michaels, JoAnns, and Pacific Fabrics) by sewing, or using fabric glue.

I recently added metal mesh + multi-coated swarovski crystals to the pickup points of the scarf..

It creates a nice swinging fringe effect :P
