The full wrap around scarf

I never thought the day would come that I would be sharing a step by step for wrapping a scarf around my neck.

But let me explain why this is happening. 

There is a method of “fluffing” a scarf to make it look fuller and more stylish than just a simple loop around. So while this step by step may seem elementary, it’s also very advanced and challenging. 

I kid.

I really just wanted to show you how I “stretch” out my scarf around my neck since a few of you have commented on wanting a “scarf tutorial”. 

shirt: Loft
scarf: J.Crew, similar
jeans: Loft
booties: Target
And now for an animation. . .

    Thank you for the scarf tutorial : )
    I do have an off topic question to ask of you —
    If you don’t mind sharing, I am wondering what size did you purchase in the Loft top you are wearing? I like the simplicity of it, but I do not have a Loft nearby to go and try it on for size.

    Love this tutorial! You taught me how to wear scarves a year or so ago when I found your blog. Seriously, loving Loft right now. I need to find me a good pair of jeans for everyday. I may try there first!

    Have a great trip to DC this weekend, btw!

    I really appreciate even “elementary” tutorials. I’ve always been kind of a plain-Jane type person and I’m trying to branch out and be more stylish. I love your blog!

    I guess I’m a little slow. My scarf didn’t look anything like yours when I tried it!!

    I’ve been following you for a while and I wanted to thank you for all of the valuable information you post! I love having guidance with at first trying make-up at all and now trying new make-up, clothes, nail polishes and hair styles. I feel much more confident when I leave my house and go to special events.

    I was wondering if you could do a tutorial on how to properly blow dry hair, like with a round brush? I’ve heard it’s kind of difficult and I can’t find a proper tutorial on it.

    Thanks again for sharing your lovely blog 🙂
