I am a huge fan of James Nord (creator of Fohr) and his weekly segment, “a drink with James” so much so that I’ve started to showcase and hone in on my creative energy . Fueled by whiskey and the occasional F-bomb, James tackles sent in questions surrounding influencers in the social media world. It’s basically my virtual backbone because he extinguishes doubt, pushes for difference and uniqueness as all influencers should. In light of this new found freedom to express myself creatively, + my newest spring favorites, brings me to this post: How to make a silk scarf a versatile accessory in your wardrobe besides the typical, ever so played-out ponytail look. Plus, lots of weird photos that set my soul on fire and, are, so me.
Three ways to wear a silk scarf ((besides a ponytail))
- Around your bag. Classic and super easy way to jazz up your standard carry-all. Can you tie it in a knot, can you tie it in a bow, can you… never mind. You get the idea.
- Around your hair in a classic, vintage way. Okay so I don’t have flowy long hair and maybe you don’t either. It’s okay! You can make a scarf your new friend by wrapping it over your mane and throwing on some dope cat-eye sunnies to really retro your look. BUT, If you ARE looking for cute ways to add it to your long hair, check out this video by Gemery here and follow her on IG here. I also love this Turban, silk-scarf how-to from Kayla Lashae youtube. All her styles are easy as pie to copy!
- As a scarf/bow tie/choker. The chic’est way to instantly up your style and it’s super easy. I love a bow on a button up or wrapped as a choker with a vintage tee and red lip.
