Firstly, let’s talk sizes. Clare’s scarves start with a 30×30cm Pocket Square which is perfect on your handbag as a twilly. Then we have the Medium Square, which is 50×50cm, an ideal neck scarf and more. The Narrow Scarf, measuring 100×30cm, such a lovely size. The Classic Scarf at 153×43cm, one of the most popular. Then finally the Large Square coming in at 100×100cm. A perfect size for so many styles.
So, you have the scarves, but how to wear them? That’s the question. There are many ways to tie a scarf instead of just draping it round your neck. Hopefully, this blog will give you a few ideas; some well known, but maybe one or two that are just that little bit different.
I’ll start with the pocket square, then work my way up to the large square. Giving you step by step photos and guides to help you along.
The Pocket Square. Ideal to be used as a twilly on your handbag, but how would you attach yours? You can tie it on, right? Silk can easily slip undone though, and what a travisty it would be for it to loosen and fall off. There is a simple solution, one you may not have thought of…. a hair bobble/hair tie.
By securing your small square with the aid of a hair tie, not only are you lessening the risk of losing the square, but you get to see more of it’s beauty.
Another way to adorn your bag is with a bow. Now to tie a bow with a small pocket square and still have it looking good would be diffucult to acheive, so once again, this is where a hair tie comes in handy.
Of course, as it’s name suggests, it can be worn in your pocket, and a lot of men can be seen wearing them in a breast pocket of a jacket, so why not we women, but, they are also just large enough to wear around your neck.
Now let us move on to the bigger, medium square. Introduced at the request of several of Clare’s customers.
Once again, this square can be worn as a bandana around your neck, but it equally makes a fabulous headband, being the perfect size for one.
Securing the scarf with a hair tie gives you a fully adjustable headband, to be worn in a number of ways. With the tied part hidden under your hairline, or on top of your head. To turn this into a “knot” simply tuck the loose ends in.
Moving on, we have the very popular narrow scarf. As the name suggests, it is a slimline scarf. A favourite little gem in a lot of our wardrobes.
With this one, I began to wonder about wearing it in my hair, but didn’t want to tie the scarf into a bow around my hair. So once again my little friend the hair tie stepped in and I was able to create a bow for my hair
Moving swiftly along, we come to the scarf, which in my opinion, is the most popular and most versitile. The classic. There are so many ways this practical sized scarf can be used. I tend to wear my classic scarves a lot more than the other sizes. It is the perfect size to do so much with.
The figure of eight choker is so easy to achieve. It can add that touch of class to any outfit, and if worn for an evening, how elegant to leave the loose ends cascading down the back of your neck
Adding one of Clare’s amazing scarf rings to your collection definately gives you more scope to create different styles. The cross design of the ring can be used in a variety of ways, from threading the ends of the scarf through to gather it without having to tie it, to making a sweet ‘pussy bow’.
Last but by no means least we come to the large square. Another amazing sized scarf that has so many and varied uses. With this scarf, I was able to get quite creative, and I dare say I’ll have more styles to add at some point.
I do however have some more ideas to share with you. I’m sure you’d like to give them a go, being a little bit different, but easy to achieve.
Both the boy scout, and the cowl neck required the use of a hair tie. By halving the scarf on the diagonal to make a large triangle, bring the two ends together and secure with a twisted hair tie. Pulled up with the tails at the front, looking like a boy scout, or loosen it off, turn it round so the point is at the front, and hey presto, you have turned it into a cowl neck.
The crossed knot and barley twist I came across just by messing about.
The barley twist I think speaks for itself. It looks so nice as an alternative way to wear a scarf, or instead of wearing a necklace. This is another method that uses the longest length of the scarf by going corner to corner
So there you have it. A few ways to wear or attach your fabulous Clare Haggas scarves. Why not play around with yours and see if you can come up with other ways to use them.
I hope you have found this blog of some use to you. As I think up more, I will add them to another post, so they are all catalogued in one place.
Have fun experimenting, but most of all enjoy your pieces of pure decadence.
Until next time, always remember, Be Happy, Stay Happy and most of all Have Fun. Stay safe.
