Autumn/winter is one of my favourite seasons of all as I get to show off my scarf beauties and sample different tying techniques. If you enjoy street style fashion, hit the city or your fashionable street walk and observe what everyone is wearing around their necks.
Twirl, twist, curl, flip, crunch are some techniques many women and men are adopting in their fashion wardrobe, with one simple accessory. The humble scarf.
Youtube is an excellent platform for tapping in fashion and styling ideas, and I enjoy perusing various stylists and fashion bloggers who continue to inspire me. These are a few of my favourite styling videos and I hope you find some fun ideas with your bevy of scarves.
Start practicing those tying techniques now and incorporate them in your casual, work or evening wear.
