The Long Scarf for All Ages: Worn 3 Different Ways
Quote of the day: “Things work out best for those who make the best of how things work out.” John Wooden
If you’d like me to interpret the quote to go along with this series, I’d say, don’t stress over the “right” way to wear a scarf! There are so many varieties, and it’s fun to just experiment!
We styled a wrap scarf, here, and a square scarf, here, on our vacation to Vegas back in December. I included a video for one of the styles for this post if you like that kind of thing! I only did it for one way because I thought everyone might already know the other two ways?
This long, rectangular scarf is the one I seem to have an abundance of in my collection. How about you? What’s the shape of scarves that you have the most of in your closet?
This part of the adventure was inside the Wynn Casino on our Christmas holiday together. The Popeye statue caught our eye and we thought it’d be fun to pose in front of it. We decided to get a little silly and copy the Popeye pose!! Of course our biceps are not quite as impressive as Popeye’s!!
As you can see, taking our photos inside sure gives off a different light! To me, these photos have such a yellow tint to them. I guess I really need to practice on my inside photography??
Jodie’s (50’s) Outfit: Here’s my graphic t-shirt with our fun logo on it that the talented Spygirl created!! I wore the t-shirt over a short sleeve dress (and even wore a lace, long sleeve shirt under the dress for warmth). See, I do try to practice what I preach with layering and making my clothes versatile!!
Who knows how I got the idea to tie the scarf the way I’m wearing it?? Sometimes I just play around and try to get a little creative. But for my look, I wrapped the material around my neck twice and then tucked one end in between the two layers, and the other end over both layers!
Here’s the video of how I ended up tying this scarf. I tried to get creative with it so the description above may not make much sense! One way or another, hopefully you can recreate it if you like it!
Nancy’s (60’s) Outfit: Since Nancy was wearing her blazer unbuttoned, I thought I’d style the scarf so the ends would keep with the vertical theme. And for the life of me, I thought I had both ends of the scarf through the loop. Either I changed my mind at the last minute (this was almost 3 months ago, so you can’t expect me to remember, right?) or the one end came out when I finished styling her? We will never know.
The way I thought I wanted this scarf to look is the common way, where you fold the scarf in half lengthwise. Then position the middle of this folded scarf around you neck and pull the ends through the loop. Of course, you can recreate what we did here in these photos too! Just pull out one of the ends!
Charlotte’s (70’s) Outfit: You can tell that mom has been eating her spinach, just like Popeye behind her!! She thought we were terribly silly trying to pose like this, but I want you to know that after we took these photos—everyone else around us posed like this too!!
I styled this scarf around mom’s neck the other common way for a rectangular, long scarf. We put the halfway point of the scarf in the front of her chest and then wrapped the ends around her neck and pulled them to the front. Most of the time when I wear my scarf like this, I keep the ends even. But you know me, I had to try something different here, so I pulled one end longer than the other!
