Celebrating Style Link Up - Have You Tried Wearing Your Scarf Like This?

Hi everyone!

Firstly apologies for the lateness of this post. It's usually out late Thursday evenings, but I have just returned from Essex to visit the family.

A jam-packed four days away, and I always get behind with anything blog related. It amazes me how if you take your finger off the PC for a couple of days how quickly you can fall behind. I haven't even started to reply to my comments yet! I really need to organise myself better. Any tips out there on how to keep up with it all? Tell me your secret!



I'm sharing here, how to jazz up a plain T-shirt under a jacket. I often do this with my scarves, and it's an instant dress yourself up look. I say jacket, but it works with anything over the top really. I also wear my scarves like this under a knitted sleeveless long waistcoat that I have.



Tied from corner to corner loosely to form the cowl neck effect, and the each corner wrapped around the back and tied again. Or if the scarf is too small to tie, I just tuck the front in. 


So here, you can see how it looks without the jacket. I wouldn't wear it without a jacket or waistcoat! So this will only work if you know you're going to keep those items on. I love the floaty effect it gives off though. Again, if you don't like it so puffy, just tuck more in.


So here's a side view example! I'm just wearing a simple long-sleeved T-shirt underneath from Primark. I wear these simple tops so much and have so many colours.


Pop your jacket on and hey presto!


Have you tried this before? Or maybe you have a better idea to wear your scarves? Do tell!
Now onto the link-up, I'm looking forward to seeing your style/beauty posts. Don't forget to let me know how you keep up to date and organised with your blog!

  1. I can see you've turned it into a blouse. Very inventive. I worn mine as a jacket kimono thing before by knotting two corners and two corners to make sleeves. I've been out of sorts too, with my back problems. It's amazing how disruption makes you not even want to blog.

    1. Well I hope your back's better now Anna. It's so easy to get behind in this blogging game! Sometimes I have a huge backlog and just don't know where to start! Hence why my reply is so late! xx

  2. I have a lot of scarfs but have never been very good at arranging them, so this is a great tip Laurie! Gives a very smart edge to your look. Have a great weekend,

  4. I love this creative way to style a scarf, Laurie! It looks like a beautiful floral printed blouse! How cool! I may have to try this, but I rarely keep my jackets on all day! Maybe I will come up with a similar way where you can still remove your jacket!

    And if you figure how to keep on top of blog stuff, please let me know...because I still haven't figured it out myself!

  11. I catch up with comments and others' blogs via my faithful kindle companion which follows me round the house and in the garden and stays with me until lights out. Though I don't get anything like the number of comments as other bloggers so I guess it's much easier forme.

  16. What a brilliant idea! I'm definitely going to try this! I wish I had some useful tips on how to stay organised...there are never enough hours in the day to get everything done. I've just finished a long stretch at work and now have a couple of weeks off so hopefully I'll be back on track soon!
