Unfortunately, birthday week is over now, but it’s still summer and my friends and I this year have made sure that we’re absolutely not short of activities, so I’ve still got so much to look forward to!
I had an absolutely wonderful week last week, and was completely spoiled by my family and friends, which left me feeling very lucky and very loved. The week was filled with Prosecco, picnics, concerts, parties and the occasional bit of exercise – a perfect week.
Anyway, as promised, I’m doing a “How To Wear” with my new Hermes scarf ring that I was very lucky to get for my birthday from my brother Charlie. I had no designated photographer this week and it wouldn’t work with selfies so the pics are sans person – I hope they still make sense!
This one basically attaches the scarf to the neckline of your top or dress and keeps it fixed throughout the day.
– start with the basic bias fold I showed you last time (except don’t tie it together at the top!)– Next, take your scarf ring and thread one end through the inside loop and through the sleeve of your top or dress.
– Bring the scarf right through and double the scarf over the loop and thread it back through the other way.
-Make sure that the knot in the centre of the scarf matches up with the centre of the neckline and either use another scarf ring to attach the other end or use a neat double knot. Then tie the two loose ends together at the back of the neck so that the scarf doesn’t slip. Et voila!
This one is super basic and super trusty, it takes 5 seconds to do and I feel like the scarf ring is a lot more secure than it is with others.
– Again, fold your scarf into the bias fold (without the knot in the middle).
– Thread one end of the scarf through the outside loop and bring the loop quite far up the scarf. – – Thread that same end into the other side of the scarf loop and tighten until there is a small bunch.
– Thread the other end of the scarf through that hole and tighten
Double Gavroche Twist Knot:
If you’ve got two scarves that work brilliantly together then this knot looks fantastic! Mine aren’t a perfect match but they’re the two biggish ones I have so that’s what you’ll have to learn from!
– Fold your two scarves in a bias fold and thread the end of one through the loop
– Thread the other the opposite way so they’re tight on.
– With the loop at the top, cross the other ends of the scarves over one another and bring them back up to join at the top.
– Either knot or thread through the loop. I do both just to be sure!
Again, this one is super easy and depending on how tight you pull the ends, you can either have a scarf that resembles a bow or a tighter, more neat twist.
– Again, use a bias fold. Thread both ends through the top loop of the scarf ring and pull to at least half way up the scarf.
– Take the ends of the scarf and loop around, threading them through the bottom loop of the scarf from behind.
– You can either leave this as a bow or tighten to make a twist.
I hope this has given you a few more ideas!
I find a load of videos on YouTube so if you’re ever unsure just have a look on there and I promise there will be loads!
