Hermes Scarf

December 23rd, 2011

I’m super excited to share this post with all of you as an easy alternative to busy or seasonal holiday looks. Sometimes, dressing for the holidays is hard simply because seasonal dressing is hard: you have to stay away from certain patterns or colors or embrace them and make them work. I was getting ready to go to a holiday party with Loc and my clients at a cozy uptown Italian restaurant when I came up with this little trick. I’ve been going non-stop with all the holiday events for the past few weeks and I needed a new look. It ended up being something anyone could pull off for holiday parties or dinners.

I know many of us have beautiful scarves. I’m sometimes guilty of buying scarves with vivid prints that end up sitting in the drawer and don’t get much wear. Do you have a scarf or two that you don’t wear too often or have no idea what to do with? Now is the perfect time to pull them out! Give your scarves a new life for the holiday and give your holiday looks a twist. I will show you how. This short DIY project is super easy, fun and you will instantly have something new to wear without spending any money. Got to love that!!!

I use the scarves as a layering piece underneath my jacket to have a pop of color. If you don’t have a long jacket like this you can layer it with a long black soft cardigan and jeans.

Here is how to do it:

You need 2 scarves in a square shape. Use one scarf for the front of your top and one in the back. The back piece will hold the weight of the front piece and will work to keep the front scarf in balance. The one I use measures 36″x36″

In the photos I’m using scarf #1 for front & #2 for back.

First fold #2 scarf into a triangle. The reason why I have it folded up is because I don’t want it to peep out from underneath my jacket.

Then, knot one of the corners of scarf #1 & #2 together.

Put it over your shoulder and then tie the second corners of the two scarves together.

It is that simple: you have the one shoulder top. Leave the back as is.

Put on your jacket or cardigan and a fabulous necklace or earrings and you are set to go!!! Is it too loose? Belt it at the waist. Have fun with the patterns and colors! Wishing you and your family a Merry Christmas!! xoxo NINI
