A Wrap Scarf for All Ages: Worn 3 Different Ways
Quote of the day: “If you do what you always did, you will get what you always got.” Anonymous
Again–a very apropos quote and it works perfectly for this series about scarves. Not that it’s bad to repeat what we know, but it can be just as fun to learn a new way to wear the scarves you already have in your wardrobe!
So if you’re one of those women that have no trouble throwing on any type of scarf and feeling comfortable in them, I hope you will still read along. I’ll show you where we went on our vacation and you can laugh along with us!
I’m not 100% sure what you’d really call this scarf! I named it a wrap, because it’s an asymmetrical rectangle. If you want to see what it looks like by itself, check out the video below!
When we traveled to Las Vegas for our family Christmas together, I figured scarves would be a perfect item to bring along and photograph. Thanks to my husband, Rob, for carrying all of the scarves and being our photographer!!
I’m also going to be trying something different in this series. I know a picture is worth a thousand words, but sometimes it’s hard to describe how to tie a scarf with only a photo or two. So for some of our outfits, I’ll be showing a video also! Then it’s your choice on whether you want the written description or the video. And please realize, this is my first attempt at videoing—or maybe think of it as some comic relief–ha ha!!
Here we are outside the Wynn casino! Once we walked outside and saw this waterfall, I was hoping it’d be a nice backdrop for some photos! For those of you who are thinking of spring and not of a heavy scarf, these styles could work for a lightweight wrap too. And those of you with 12 inches of snowfall from last week—this could be exactly what you need right now! I even heard from one woman on Facebook (thanks Caroline) that she uses her scarf like this as a prayer shawl!
Charlotte’s (70’s) Outfit: I’m going to start with my mom’s rendition of the wrap because I’d consider this way the easiest way to wear it.
I had mom drape it around her shoulders and voila!! Of course since this scarf was pretty wide, we did fold it slightly at the neck to create a collar!
Nancy’s (60’s) Outfit: Now for Nancy’s variety, we started the same way as mom’s version above, but then took one end and threw it over her shoulder.
I would suspect that this version can be annoying to some, if the end that is thrown over doesn’t stay in place. My solution for this problem would be to add a pin or brooch somewhere on the end to keep it in place!
From the back view, this way of styling the wrap, doesn’t look much different than mom’s version above!
Jodie’s (50’s) Outfit: Even though it’s not a blanket scarf, I thought I’d try to recreate the look that I’ve seen with those scarves!
I started with the middle of the scarf in the front of my body. Then I wrapped the ends around and placed one end in front under the material. The other end I left on top as it hung on the side of the middle portion.
This could certainly be overwhelming since it’s just a big scarf. But the other way to look at it, is it should definitely keep you warm!
Even though I’m showing you these variations with a heavy scarf, this could work perfectly for a lighter weight wrap too! I’d think most of us would wear this wrap when we’re all dressed up for a gala or event, but need to be prepared for the air conditioning!! Heck…I took this same scarf to Phoenix and wore it on the plane as my blanket!! And some of you may have already seen the video on Facebook! Isn’t it always a shocker hearing someone’s voice for the first time? Have at it below, if you want!
