Questions and Answers

Circular scarf that goes around waist and shoulders?

This style of wearing the scarf is called the Vest. Here's how you do it:

  • Place your infinity scarf around your waist.
  • Get the loop inside over your head.
  • Do not leave it hanging on your neck. Let it loose and down to your waist.
  • Make sure that the inner back part of your scarf hangs flatly on your body. Continue holding it in place because your scarf will not hang off on its own on your hips.
  • Cross the scarf at your waist, creating a number eight figure on your body front.
  • Cross the scarf's loops, one side over the other.
  • The area where the loops meet or cross should be over your breast.
  • By now, you should have created a loop near the neck. The loops should be big enough so your head can go through.
  • Slip the loop around the head and pull it up over the head making sure that the inner back part of the loop is snug against your nape.

Depending on the type of scarf you are using, the scarf can be tied and styled in different ways as shown below:

Wearing scarves for v shaped face.jpg

A v-shaped face suits almost all types of ways to tie a scarf. However, the best way is to just depend on the regular loop style in which you fold the scrap into two and then make a loop at the other end and then insert the other end there. It's simple and it creates an accent to the face. It's also not that bulky at the neck area, so it functions just like a collar, which is OK.

You can tie it like a ribbon. Roll it around your neck and hold both ends in front of you. Tie it in the middle, though not too tight, and then create a ribbon out of it. To make it look more elegant, you may want to slide it to the side of your neck. That will look really great especially if you are using a rounded neckline.
