What Knot to Wear

Today’s Fashion Friday is my attempt at tying up a few loose ends. Last week’s feature, A Fashion Wrap with my friend, Lorraine of Clamco, sparked an interest in scarves. In fact, I had a record number of comments from that post which encouraged me to try a headscarf, too. So, on a day when I was in a huge hurry, I chose what knot to wear and headed out the door.  I have to say a huge thank you to Lorraine for awakening me to the many ways there are of wearing scarves. I’ve decided that on days when I am staying in or running a quick errand and don’t want to do my hair, a headscarf is the way to go.

The first tutorial I want to share teaches us how to tie scarves from a vintage perspective. See if you recognize any of these styles.


And, this lovely cancer survivor shows us a really sporty way to wear a scarf. I love the fact that she developed one way to wear a scarf that suited her and wore them all the same way. She had her own signature look while undergoing chemo. What a trooper! She is an inspiration to us all, in that she put her makeup on everyday – no matter how bad she was feeling.




These looks will inspire you and perhaps you’ll want to rush out to purchase a few. If so, check out Chico’s video before you go.



And now you know what knot to wear.

  1. I have have always loved the magic you can pull off with scarves because my hair drives me up the wall! In the 70s I was in the fashion biz, and they used to call me “scarf lady” because I wore them a lot. I once had a short-time boyfriend from Egypt in those days, and he said I looked like his little old grandmother in the old country! That was a real turn-on…

    Now I like them along with hairpieces because it takes the time and effort out of dealing with my hair every day.

  2. I loved these videos! Anything with a vintage twist catches my attention. Who knew there were so many ways to wear a scarf. Maybe we should all wear one at our next SBJ meeting. Alan can wear a turban.
