How to tie a scarf

I often am asked questions like this: 

How should I tie this scarf?  

Can I wear a scarf with this outfit?  

How do I even begin to incorporate scarves into my wardrobe?

I personally love scarves, especially for winter and when traveling. They are so versatile.  Of course, you can wear them for warmth, but you can also use them to add pizzazz to your outfit.  When traveling, I always pack one in my carry-on suitcase because I never what the temperature will be like on the plane. 

Last spring, I hosted a Just Jewelry party for my friend Christy who is a senior team leader. While at the party, Christy showed guests how to tie a lighter scarf for use in the spring or summer.  I decided it would make a great mini tutorial for Simply Sarah Style.  (I do ask you to forgive my horrible filming and narration skills though.)  With that aside, Christy does a great job explaining how to create this scarf knot.

In addition, the piece below by is very helpful when coming up with new styles. Check out the website for full tutorials.

I also loved this piece from 9GAG. It has great graphics for tying a scarf. I recommend going to their site to see the graphic in a larger size.  This was as big as it would get on my blog for some reason. 

Lastly, I thought I would wrap up with inspirational photos from My Style board on Pinterest.
