Afraid of a Square Scarf…

Have you ever been in a store looking at the beautiful scarfs and see the perfect design for you, only to discover that the scarf is square. You probably know how to wear an oblong scarf, but square…what do you do with that much material? At Tangled Twigs, we have had that same feeling, so we’ve come up with a few helpful hints to help you add extra pizazz to your outfit with a scarf.

1st way: Simply take the square scarf and fold it down the middle to make a triangle. Lay the tip of the triangle on your chest and wrap it around to the back and then come back around to the front and tie it UNDER the front so the knot is hidden. You can simply tie it in the back, but for a more polished look, hide the ends under the front of the scarf. (gold scarf shown at right)

2nd way: You start out the same way as way #1. Simply take the square scarf and fold it down the middle to make a triangle. Then roll it to make a long scarf and drape it around your neck and tie it in a loose tie.

3rd way: Make a shawl out of a very large square by first folding it into a triangle. Drape the scarf over one shoulder so that the point extends toward your elbow and the ends hang on either side of your torso. Tie the ends at the opposite hip, or belt the scarf at your waist…so chic!

4th way: To make a head scarf, start out the same as in way #1. Simply take the square scarf and fold it down the middle to make a triangle. Then lay the center of the triangle on your head with the point in the back. You may want to get someone to hold the scarf down on your forehead. Take the ends and tie it OVER the point of the triangle at the base of your neck. You can use a regular old knot or a square knot.

5th way: If you’re still not convinced that a square scarf is for you, try this idea…fold the scarf into a triangle. Lay flat and fold lengthwise until you form an oblong scarf. Fold in half. Put around your neck, keeping the center of the fold in front. Just put both ends of the scarf through the hole created by the fold and..tada..another great look!
