You're a present, you deserve to be wrapped

No I'm not thinking of wrapping you up in Tesco's finest roll wrap and packaging you all to my lovely grandma, although I'm sure you'd all make wonderful presents.
 
For me other than the wonderful celebration Christmas (I'm not sure if you've heard of it, it hasn't really taken off yet) winter reminds me of sore throats and being mind-numbingly freakin' cold. For all you thrill seekers, I'm sure you thrive in such conditions but I'm sure if Darwin's theory is correct, I would be cast aside and frowned if the process of natural selection occurred, 21st century style.
 
So if I may, here is some Scarf-spiration (took me all day to think of that!) to motivate you when wrapping yourselves up #the neck edition
 
So guys here we go!!
 

First we have the easy and simple wrap the scarf once around the neck and let the sides drape down by the shoulders. This is best achieved with a pashmina scarf. The style looks great if you want to accessorise a boring work outfit and keep your neck all warm and snug.


 Next we have the fold the scarf in two, drape around the neck, form a loop and pool the other end through the loop. I like to use a thin, light scarf with this way.



 


Here, to be frank, is the posh one which looks great with a blouse and skater skirt combo. Drape the scarf around your neck, pull one side through the other as if tying a knot. (it is easier that I have made it look!) You can also fan the scarf out from the top of the knot.

 
 The one we all do is wrap the scarf around our neck as many times as possible in the shortest space of time, without strangling ourselves! I love using a really chunky scarf for this. It is my favourite, especially if I'm in a hurry. Those made from polyester-wool are usually the warmest.
 

And below we have the snood which is equally comfortable. It does take a bit of time to get the hang of and I would suggest getting a chunky knit one, rather than one with holes in it like mine!
 


AND THE ONE THAT DIDN'T MAKE THE CUT
CRAZY NINJA LADY THAT GOT BORED AND TIED THE PASHMINA SCARF ROUND HER HEAD
 
 
I hope you enjoyed this post and have seen something you like.
I will not be held responsible if you get stuck or tangled in your scarf, attempting to try one of the styles.
For basic versatile scarves, I would recommend H&M who have lovely burgundy, mustard yellow and forest green colours.
 
And if you're huffing and puffing with the long piece of material in your hands, think about how our friend's the giraffes feel

  6. Own, I loved the second one! Here in Brazil it doesn't snow, so Christmas is always hot. hahaha We usually wear long - but comfortable - dresses, soft clothes. I love scarffs, I wish I could wear them more often.

    1. Warm weather all the time, that would be lovely x But I love wrapping up too x I'm quite fond of maxi type dresses even though the weather is rarely right for it here in england. Are thin chiffon type scarves popular in Brazil?
