Three ways to wear a 48 inch square scarf


I'm in my scarf drawer, again, to pull out this large 48 inch square silk designer scarf.


 I found a website with many beautiful Chanel scarves.  It's fun just to look!


I wanted to share with you three ways to wear this scarf.  

1.  Wear it as a shawl

There is nothing like wrapping yourself in the feel of silk.  This even feels better over bare shoulders or over a simple black dress....  Giving the impression that you are sheltering yourself from a cool evening breeze



2.  Rolled diagonally and wrapped twice and tied to perfectly frame your face.  I like to accessorize with a heavy gold chain necklace that compliments the chain in the silk print. 







3.  Folded diagonally in half and wrapped twice around the neck and tied in front.  The remainder of the scarf then falls over the knot.






I found some wonderful larger square scarves for you to look at:

Note of interest:  How to tell an authentic designer scarf from a knock off.  One way is to look at the hem. 
 The "real" scarf will have a hand rolled hem (see the video on a hand rolled hem) and the "knock off" will have a machine hem or serged edge.  






Money doesn't buy elegance. You can take an inexpensive sheath, add a pretty scarf, gray shoes, and a wonderful bag, and it will always be elegant.       Carolina Herrera
