I’ve always worn a scarf in the most traditional sense…a little knot around my neck. However, during our last photoshoot, after having my Gen-Z co-workers handle the styling, my eyes were opened to a whole new world. I marveled at these twenty-something’s creative innovativeness as they effortlessly transformed our Mestiza printed square into an unexpected, everyday hair accessory, then, with the wave of a hand the hair accessory became a chic halter top. They continued to experiment, then shrieked with glee when it worked! Inspired by their enthusiasm for our newest accessory, I asked them to share a step-by-step demonstration of their top 3 favorite ways to tie our Mestiza scarf.
Here are 3 ways to tie your Sabina Scarf to complete any look this fall!
1. Around the Neck
1. Hold the scarf out by two corners
2. Fold the scarf in half to make a triangle
3. Bring the scarf around your shoulders
4. Tie the free corner's of the scarf in a knot that hits just below your clavicle bone and adjust as needed
5. For an additional styling: flip your scarf around so the wide triangle point is facing the front for a cowl-neck look
2. In your Hair
1. Fold the scarf in half to make a triangle
2. From the middle tip of the triangle, roll the scarf inward in 2-3 inch sections
3. While holding onto the long edges of the scarf, wrap the scarf around the back of your head right where your head meets your neck
4. Cross the two ends of the scarf over top of each other and twist them to create a dramatic knot on the top of your head
5. Wrap the long ends of the scarf back around your head and tie them in the back
6. Pair it with the Elise Midi Slip Dress for the ultimate Mestiza look
3. As a Top
1. Hold out two corners and twist the scarf so on one corner the print is facing towards you and the other corner the print is facing away from you
2. Tie a small knot at the very end of the corners around the back of your neck
3. Hold out the two loose corners at the bottom of the scarf so that the print is facing out
4. Wrap the loose corners around your waist and tie another small knot near the end of the corners
5. Tuck in the scarf to your bottoms (we recommend pairing the look with the Penelope Sequin Midi Skirt)
