3 Ways to Wear a Wrap Scarf & A Chico’s Girlfriend Event

Ageless Style for Women.

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!

Ageless Style for Women.

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.

Ageless Style for Women.

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!

Ageless Style for Women.

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!

Ageless Style for Women.

 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.

Ageless Style for Women.

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!

Thank you to each and every one of you who is reading this! I appreciate the support and love! If you do love to watch videos, I’d certainly appreciate it if you subscribe to my channel on You Tube and give me a thumbs up on each video!! 

This Thursday evening, March 23, Chico’s is hosting a Girlfriend Event!! There will be fun, discounts and styling available at their boutiques around the country. You should head out to your local Chico’s!! I’m super excited to say that my mom, Nancy & I will be at the Park Meadows Mall, Chico’s from 5-9 pm. that evening! We would be ecstatic, if you come visit with us!!

    That scarf is really pretty and you could wear it with so many things. You are such a planner. The fact that you went somewhere to celebrate Christmas and brought along some work too! Ha, ha. Way to go. – Amy

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Well…I am a planner Amy! But especially since we were all together, it seemed like the perfect opportunity! Just call me crazy (I know mom & Nancy do!!)
      XOXO

  • Enjoyed and pinned the video. Have wanted to wear a blanket scarf since they became popular, but my “girls” are more like “women” (size-wise) and I have worried about adding bulk over them. But those delicious autumn plaids just tempt me so.
    Read your About page just now. I met my PC through Match.com and we have a funny 8 Minute Dating story we share. Interesting how those programs can launch some great relationships.

    • Jodie Filogomo

      How funny about your PC and you meeting through Match.com. But really, you have to meet somewhere—so in this day and age, the internet is just as good as bars or clubs, right?
      Thanks for the love, Leslie!! I wasn’t sure about these big scarves either—but there are times it just makes sense!

  • I never know exactly how to style these wrap scarves. Your tips are all great! And good idea making the videos. It’s hard to show it all in photos sometimes. You ladies all look lovely as always! 🙂

      I always feel like what I mean doesn’t come across in what I write—so I took the plunge with these videos, Lindsey!!
      Thanks for your positive words!! 🙂

  • I think these wraps are such a valuable piece of kit for any wardrobe Jodie. I have a couple that Iv’e used on summer evenings and then in the winter over my coat. You all look great in the wraps. Great post xx

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Now that ‘s a great idea to wear it over a coat, Laurie!
      I’m going to have to remember that for next winter!!

    This is AMAZING!!!! I’m going to send all of my style clients over here because it’s such great knowledge! Stopping by from the Confident Twosday linkup!

      Thanks tons!!

  • donnaduck

    Oh my gosh, Jodie! I checked out your You Tube video, and then stayed to watch more!! I never quite know how to do my scarves, other than a basic wrap around or maybe a know. But thanks to you, and a few other videos, I’m going to be ROCKING my scarves from now on! LOL!! And- you sound exactly like I thought you would! Thank you SO much for the videos/tutorials!!!

    • Jodie Filogomo

      I’m so glad you liked them, Donna!!
      It is amazing how many videos there are on scarf tying! You can spend all day watching them! But it’s nice to have some variety—especially depending on the shape of the scarf!!
      Thanks for the love—and happy hump day!

  • These looks are all so cute and cozy! I am loving that scarf – it’s so big and versatile – I just want to wrap myself up in it!

    • Jodie Filogomo

      It definitely is so warm, Annessa!! Thanks!

  • Your blog has given me the biggest smile!! I love that you’re doing this with your mum and your step-mum – such an original concept and I love seeing your different takes on different trends 🙂

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Thanks Ivana!! I really appreciate your positive words!
      It’s fun to involve mom & Nancy!

  • I love this scarf! It’s large enough to use as a wrap but it’s slim enough to be a fabulous scarf. I love the shades of grey!

    http://www.mylittlenest.org

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Thanks Ruth!!

  • So creative of you to use the wrap as a scarf and it isn’t bulky at all! All of your looks are lovely.

      Thanks so much Brooke!!

  • Love this pretty scarf and the video. So fun! I have the same scarf and love the different shades of grey in it.

    • Jodie Filogomo

      That’s funny you have the same scarf, Laura!! I bet you got yours at DSW also?? I know when I first got it, I thought I probably wouldn’t use it much, and I’ve been so surprised at how much I love it!!

  • Love this post and especially your video demo, Jodie! So great actually hearing your voice! You ladies are looking fantastic in your scarves! Who doesn’t love a great scarf anytime of the year?! Even on a cool night in Florida a big, lightweight cashmere scarf is the perfect accessory and styled like Nancy’s, it looks perfectly appropriate, not to mention chic 🙂 When I’m in Chicago I like to wear my scarf the way you have styled yours for the extra warmth it provides around my neck. A must-have accessory for me wherever in the world I happen to be. Great post! Look forward to more videos 🙂

    • Jodie Filogomo

      You’re so right Mary!!
      I never pack my scarves away for any season, just for the possibility of traveling elsewhere! And the airport & plane are always freezing for me! Heck, I usually take a jacket to the grocery store in the summer because they have the A/C blasting. I should just take this scarf instead!!
      XOXO

  • I feel like this post should also be called how to style athleasure – you all have your athletic shoes nailed. I’m definitely still in scarf weather here, and this time of year is always the worst for me to be reading other blogs, where everyone is wearing dresses and sandals – even if it’s not actually warm where they are because they need to stay ahead of the trends. SO some nice cozy scarf styling looks great to me.

    • Jodie Filogomo

      OMG Lydia—you’re so right about the weather and styling items before it’s warm enough. I feel like we’ve been super lucky here with our warm weather, so we have been sporting the spring things—but I know it won’t last!!
      And funny you say that about leisure wear. I had a reader suggest that for a series, so we’ll be doing that soon!! I’ll have to remember to link to these looks too (although I’m not a fan of my mom’s velour pants (and she knows it)) 🙂

  • dan

    It’s not time anymore for a heavy weight wrap here, but a silk or viscose one would be perfect and so … your tips come in handy, Jodie !
    Good idea to share also a video !
    P. S.
    There is something I can’ t get: why do you include those A in your text? Sorry if I ask, but… I am such a curious lady!!! 🙂

    • Jodie Filogomo

      I’m so glad you asked about the A’s, Dan. It’s some kind of weird insert—I don’t notice it on my desktop computer, but only on my pad & phone. I was hoping that it would go away with my new theme, but I still see it occasionally. I had one person say they thought it was the keyboard??. It’s quite frustrating to me, so if you ever hear about how to clear it up—I’m all ears!!
      Thanks for the kind words about the scarf!!

  • Wow, this is something new all together. I love how you’ve incorporated 3 different age difference and bring fashion back to life. Bravo!!

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Thanks so much Ms. Biwott!
      I figure that we all still have to get dressed every day no matter what age we are, right? So let’s have fun and look good too!!
      Thanks for stopping by!

  • Judy Gramith

    Hey!!!what fun to hear your voice Jodie!!!!
    Funny how a video with voice, intonation, and movement gives a whole new sense of a person! I have a bit better sense of your personality and now love you even more!! Your videos were GREAT!!!. NOT comedy relief on any level! We’ll done!!
    You all look nice and toasty in this scarf and I like that you all have some hue of purple/periwinkle in your outfits! I have tons of scarves and love the way you can use them to pull together unusual colors in an oufit by replicating what’s in the print of a scarf. They also allow you to wear a color(top or dress) that’s not so great with your complection by placing a scarf color that IS flattering next to your face.
    I sure wish I could meet all of you at the Chico’s on Thursday!!!!

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Aren’t voices just the funniest thing—especially after reading people’s words for so long. Then to hear their voices is such a surprise, I think.
      Maybe we’ll take some video at the Chico’s event too, so you can hear mom’s & Nancy’s voices!! ??
      It’s been surprising to me at how much I love and wear my scarves now that I’m blogging. I’ve always had some, but never really wore them much! Of course, it wasn’t super practical when I was working, but even on my off days I didn’t grab for them! Another great thing this blogging journey has taught me! 🙂

  • Love that scarves and such classic styles. I would be wrapped up in that scarf all the time! 🙂

    • Jodie Filogomo

      It definitely kept me warm on the airplane just recently!!

  • I love the way these scarfs are styled! It is such a lovely accessory to really dress up a look 🙂

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Thanks Heather!

  • Terri Webster Schrandt

    This scarf does look warm and delicious! It works well as a wrap too! I bought an infinity scarf very much like this, in red and grey and it is as versatile. Loved your video, seeing a scarf styled in action is so helpful! Subscribed to your YouTube channel as well 🙂

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Thanks Terri!!
      It’s so nice when you can actually use a scarf so many ways, right? I remember thinking they didn’t make much sense at first, but I guess practice does pay off!??

  • Jacqueline Rendine

    So many great ways to wear this! I love how versatile it can be!

      Thanks Jacqueline!!

  • What fun you had with this shoot, and how wonderful to hear your voice! I look forward to more videos and hearing from all of you.

    Karen’s trick with making armholes is one to explore — I’ve seen it done by just folding in half lengthwise and knotting the corners together at each end. The advantage there is that we have the full width of the scarf on our back which makes it look more like a jacket covering the backside.
    Charlotte may figure out all kinds of creative ways to make little tucks or gathers at the ends with a basting stitch that can be easily pulled out if you need a blanket.

    • Jodie Filogomo

      That’s exactly what I need to do, Jean. I need to get mom & Nancy involved on the videos. Hmmmm….we’re going shopping on Saturday—maybe I’ll just do that!!
      Mom & I have done that trick with the knotting the scarf: http://www.jtouchofstyle.com/t-shirt-dress-2-vest/ It didn’t quite turn out the way I wanted it to, but i’d try it again!

  • Anna Parkes

    This is a fab showcase for the scarf that wants to be a wrap and a wrap that wants to be a scarf Jodie. I love it and need to dig out one that I have that’s about the same size. I’ve been inspired, thanks!
    Have a fab week x

  • These are great ways to wear a wrap! I can see myself wearing it all three ways.

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Thanks Aracely!

  • Laura

    What fun ways to wear this! I love your idea about adding a brooch to keep it in place, too.

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Thanks Laura! Some of my scarves stay with no problems, but otherwise it gets annoying to me when they go every which way!! (and for some reason, I seem to have an abundance of brooches—ha ha)

  • So many ways to style a blanket scarf. This wrap looks so cozy

      There have already been some days here that are WAY too warm for a scarf like this!! But man, when I got on the plane, I was glad to have it!! Why do they always keep it so cold in the airport??

  • It was such a lovely video! I was so surprised by your voice! So nice!

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Thanks Nancy! You’re always so supportive—I really appreciate that!

  • I LOVE how this is styled for the ages – what a timeless, beautiful scarf 🙂 And just love these photos – I think it’s great to show your love for fashion no matter what age you are!

      We did have fun in Vegas!! The funny thing was we’d start taking these photos in a place where no one was around, and then everyone else would come to where we were!! (We kept wondering if they thought we were famous—ha ha)

  • Mireille

    Very cool to hear your voice! Love the videos!

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Thanks Mireille!!
      It was fun making the video—well at least once it was done—ha ha!

  • I have some “scarves” similar to this, and I really love them because of their versatility. It’s fun to see you all style them differently. I always like taking one of these on a plane for warmth! The colors in this are pretty too. You know me, I am a neutral lover.

      I think this scarf was a gift with purchase at DSW a couple years ago!! I don’t even have any other big scarves like this, but after using this a couple of times, I can see how great it is! Especially for the plane!!

  • Queen of Rods

    I wish that I lived in Denver and could attend your event. Perhaps you’ll go touring and head west 🙂 I watched and enjoyed your scarf videos and have subscribed to your channel. You go, girl!

    • Jodie Filogomo

      I wished you were closer too, Janet!! I think it’d be so fun to meet up with all of the people that I “talk” to on the blog!!
      Thanks for cheering me on for the video—there’s more where that came from later this week (maybe a good thing, maybe not—ha ha)

  • Oh I love that scarf! I have a few that I use in Spring and Fall and can’t wait for it to be Fall here in Buenos Aires. I just subscribed to your YouTube channel, I also have a YouTube channel and there’s a video there with ponchos if you are interested. They can be very chic!

    Thanks for sharing!

  • I love all your scarf outfits! Your video is so great! I think it would be very hard to do but you made it look simple! I wish I could be there on Thursday but have fun and take lots of pictures to share! Have a great Monday! Peace! Cheryl

    • Jodie Filogomo

      The video was probably harder on Rob because he had to hold the camera–ha ha! Me? I love to talk, so it was hard to restrain myself from going on & on! LOL!
      XOXO

  • I loved hearing your voice! That’s so cool.

    I love these big scarves/wraps/whatevers…but agree, they can be overwhelming.

    I have a similar one and wear it as you demonstrate. I fold it forward by a third to add a cowl-like cuff before wrapping it…it helps take up some of the bulk.

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Oh, that’s such a good idea Em, to fold it!!
      I do think it’s interesting, that it seems like a lot of bulk when you first put it on, but I don’t notice it that way after I’m wearing it for awhile!
      Aren’t voices funny? I remember in 4th grade, hearing my own for the first time and hating it!!

  • I love that each of you brought a casual vibe to your looks. Every time I see a blanket scarf it’s more dressy so this is a great twist.

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Thanks Carrie!

  • Karen

    My first thought was that this was a blanket scarf, but now I see the difference. I’d be one of those who would be tugging on it, adjusting it and going a little crazy wearing it! But I do like your idea of the brooch to keep in in place, I think that would work. I have a similar wrap and while I love the pattern, wearing it was making me a little crazy so I centered it up, folded the ends to the middle and tacked it at the bottom to sort of form arm holes. It became like a shawl that stayed in place. I actually do wear it and it doesn’t look as weird as it sounds! Thanks for showing this different ways to wear a scarf like this. Your family Christmas sounds fun. It’s wonderful how you all do things together!

    • Jodie Filogomo

      What a brilliant idea Karen, to do that with your scarf!!
      My mom was just looking at a wrap at the store, that was basically this scarf but sewn up just a little to create armholes!! We were saying that it was a smart option!!
      🙂

  • In love with this versatile scarf! Thanks for sharing all the ways to wear it. That event sounds wonderful!
