The Daily Luxe x Banarsi Designs: 10 Ways To Tie A Scarf


how to wear a scarf
If you thought a scarf was simply a matter of ‘throw it around your neck’, I’ll stop you right there! In the world of the stylish, a scarf is not just a fashion accessory, it’s an endless source of self expression. In less waffly terms, there’s a whole lotta ways to tie a scarf that can add style and that little bit of quirk to your look. ‘Erm… so how exactly do I tie it then?’ I hear you ask. Fear not: I have searched far and wide, **cough** google, to find you the ten most stylish ways to tie your scarf!

So grab your fave scarf, pop yourself in front of the mirror and get ready to endure my mug for the next few minutes! It’s time for a scarf tying masterclass!

  24. Sooo I thought I knew how to wear scarves but apparently not haha. I've never even thought of these different ways, but it's so cool! I like the Back Shawl and I'll have to try the Braid for myself. I also like the instructions that you've included; I'm terrible when it comes to DIY stuff like this but you make it very simple. Thanks for sharing this, it was very helpful!

  43. Oh my gosh! Your site has changed exponentially since I was last here and it's tremendous! I absolutely love what you've done with the place, and your newly visible logo. So proud of you! Now to your scarf, wow! I always wondered how to get that bandana look without it constantly falling.. Truthfully I've never been much of a scarf person but now that I live in a place with seasons it has become a necessary evil. Your post was very inspirational and quite possibly made me like them a little more :)

  46. Wow, absolutely adoring this stunning scarf inspo Rachel! You're the divine dream queen of styling, and this gorgeous post is certainly another reason proving so! All of the scarves look totally on-point, not to mention achingly beaut and I love all ten styles. Such a cute idea for a post and I'm so happy you hit publish as the only way I seem to style mine is by snatching it back onto my shoulders when the breeze hits and it tries to fly ;) Your exotic silk scarf in berry is all the pretty, not to mention crushing hard on all the boho-boom it radiates, and your red striped vibes in the back shawl are so tropically perfect. I'd deffo like to try that one out. All the LOVE! <3

  52. I've never known what to do with my scarf haha, so stick to the standard wrap around. Yet I see so many bloggers do it so differently and it always inspires me, but when I go and try it myself it doesn't always work out haha. This is such a cool post Rachel and I always look for these type of posts on pinterest. Definitely do more of these great tutorials:-)
