Video: How I Tie My Scarf

how I tie my scarf

As some of you may have noticed, I recently updated my profile picture in my blog sidebar, for all my email addresses, on Facebook, and on all my other social media sites.

I was LONG overdue for a new photo and I’m pleased as punch with how this one turned out.

I’m not a huge fan of getting my picture taken — especially close-up pictures of JUST me — so I’m grateful to Zander and Breck Photography for capturing such a “real” image of me!

Anyway, after I posted my new pictures in a blog post last week, I started getting lots of questions asking how I tied my scarf — seriously, of all things!

So instead of trying to take a bunch of pictures, I made a quick video to show you the simple steps — I even threw in a second scarf-tying tip from my sister.

And just so you know, the reason I’m not making eye-contact with the camera is because I’m watching myself tie the scarf on my computer monitor :)

If you’re reading this in a reader or in email, you may have to click here to see the video.

So that’s it, really simple!

I only have 3 scarves, so storing them really isn’t that big of a deal… however, I just kind of roll them up and shove them in the pockets of an over-the-door shoe organizer. This method works really well for me and should also work well if you have a whole bunch of scarves too.

Do you have any other scarf-storing or scarf-tying tips?

    I LOVE scarves and I wear them all the time. Mine just hang out together in my closet on a hanger. :)

    Thanks Andrea! I always wondered how that was done, much easier than I thought. BTW, I think the tied black scarf still looks good on you even with short hair. I have short hair too and love it :)

    We’ll see, maybe I’ll try to hide the knot on the black scarf… and yes, these scarf-tying methods are very simple (but I suppose you wouldn’t expect anything less from me, right?)

    How fun! It’s so nice to put a “voice” with your blog too! I’m not a huge scarf fan-they tend to make me hot and claustrophobic AND I am SOOO completely uncreative when it comes to tying them. But this is such a fun idea, I may have to revive a few of the ones I have in my closet!

    Thanks for sharing!

    I agree with the whole putting a “voice” with the blog thing! That wasn’t how you sounded in my head!

    haha thanks Kari. That’s not how I sound in my head either (literally!) I hate listening to myself on tape or video :)

    Using the black scarf, put the knot in the front.

    It cracks me up to know I’m not the only one curious about that scarf! Thanks for the demonstration! I LOVE scarves, but sadly here in Florida most of the time it’s just plain too hot to bother with one so my scarves have been shoved in a drawer unused for years. Can’t manage to purge them because I love them so much!

    Thanks for sharing! So helpful, easy, and quick! A scarf always makes a simple outfit look that much more pulled together. Also, it was so funny to hear your voice and just how Midwestern you sound! Not that I should be surprised; I know where you are from. Ahhh, the Midwest–the nicest people in the country :)

    I know… VERY Midwestern, born and raised! I realize my “accent” every time I hear my voice recorded. Sigh…

    First of all…yes, love you, your blog, your tips, and this video…it’s nice to put a voice to the written words. =] Second…just to add, I do my scarves this way, but I just twist the loop ‘up’ and stick the second strip through (as opposed to wraping it around and through…same exact end product). Third…I JUST JUST JUST did the ‘tie a knot and flip it around your head twice’ yesterday!! (thought I made that baby up! Alas.) However…the knot bugged me a bit in the back so I just went with it, and made it be in the front. It was cute! DO THAT! Or have it just left of center or whatever.
    Fourth: my 10 year old daughter LOVES LOVES LOVES your website as well. (she’s my first born and her love language is organizing and lack o’clutter!) She says she will be designing her home when she’s older based on tips from here. I really can’t make this stuff up! =]

    Keep doing what you do! And thank you for sharing what you do with US…the part of the world that is desparately TRYING to hold it all together and make it look pretty! =]

    I store my scarves on shower rings attached to a hanger :)
    I have probably about 8 scarves and like to knit my own when I have time…

    Awwww, I loved seeing you on video, I know this is a blog but maybe a video every once in a while, it was a very nice touch and very pleasant to hear your voice, I guess from a readers perspective you connect with your audience in a different way – LOVE IT!!! Oh oh I love the new pic, and congrats on the new website name and all that jazz :-) I dont always comment, but I ALWAYS read. TTFN – Ta ta for now :-)

    This is great. I was just given a long scarf and didn’t know how to wear it. I have others that have been shoved in the closet and long forgotten. Now I can drag them out and have something new to wear. Thanks!

    I love scarves and have way too many but I would say I do get use of them living in a colder country. I have summer and winter ones and love bright colours they really can make a different to an outfit. I use to store mine on hangers but now I store them in one of my bed base drawers.
    Love the video nice to hear what you sound like :-)

    Thanks for the scarf tying tips – very helpful! Also, I love your new pics and the video, as well as your midwestern accent. I really do appreciate all of your ideas and insights. Keep up the good work, and God bless!

    I *heart* my scarves. They can revive a plain shirt and jeans into a cute and fashionable outfit. I like to buy colorful scarves so they can be mixed and matched with many shirts. My favorites are a multi-color striped scarf and a floral scarf. They also have to be soft and not too heavy or too light.

    Thanks for taking the time to show us all a new way to tie scarves. It was a lot simplier than I though it would be. Hope you have a wonderful day!

    I love the way you tied your scarf.. I never thought it was that simple. When I first saw it, in my head I imagined it to be all about twisting multiple ways :)

    Oh come on Navya — you know everything I do is simple :)

    Loved it! Very cool to hear your voice. It reminded me of a video I watched a while back that I think you’ll love. It’s full of cool ways to wear a scarf.

    Great link! Hopefully we’ll get to have autumn one of these days- it’s not cooling down in my town. Want to try this during our winter.

    So great, Andrea! I have shorter hair and I DIY an infinity all the time. I just make a small knot and use one of my gauzy scarves, so it’s really flowy.

    Good to know — I’ll have to give it a try, I always just figured you’d be able to see the knot!

    Thanks for the scarf video. “A video is worth a thousand words” especially when it’s a demo like that. So much simpler.
    Love the new format of your site.
