I love the look of a brightly colored scarf paired with the perfect jacket. Unfortunately, I am not very good at making a scarf appear effortlessly placed. In other words, tying a scarf is a skill. It looks easy but looks can be deceiving. So, Ageless Style wanted to help you achieve that stylish je ne sais quoi.
STEP 1. Look on YouTube for help.
I located many YouTube videos which provided me 15 to 20 ways to tie a scarf in 2 minutes flat. I eagerly viewed and tried to imitate the 20 looks. The videoes were so fast that I gave up after the first three ties. But if you want to give it a try, here is the YouTube link.
STEP 2. Find a cheat sheet.
I guess I am old school. I needed something with a picture. So, I found a simple diagram showing six different ways to tie an infinity scarf. After studying this set of instructions, I was able to perform 5 out 6 ties. I said to myself, “You are making progress. Don’t give up!”
STEP 3. Practice makes perfect.
Boldly taking my infinity scarf, I practiced my skills to the point where I was confident.
STEP 4. Make a video to show you.
This step was so easy to write. However, the actual execution took some time. It was my first video experience doing ad lib. Where do I make the video? What do I say? What should I wear? How much makeup do I need so I don’t look like a ghost? How do I record?
After many takes…I think I was in the 20’s, here is my instructional video. I hope it helps you become a master of infinity scarf tying. I started with an easy one. Next time I will advance to a square or rectangular scarf.
