I love scarves, I am French (cliche no?) and have been asked so many times how I tie a scarf…. Wonder no more, I am here to the rescue…

HERE’S HOW TO TIE A SQUARE SCARF LIKE A TRUE PARISIAN:

This is my favorite way to tie  a scarf… If there is one technique to remember, this is the one! It will make you look oh so chic, tres vite (so fast)…

  • Fold the square scarf on itself, in a triangle
  • Hold the scarf in front of your neck, point down
  • Cross the 2 ends in the back of neck and bring them back to front
  • Tie in front with a double knot
  • Voila! You look so French! Effortless
