My must-have plaid blanket scarf ordered via ebay, arrived in the mail last week. I could not be more thrilled!
If you missed my post on the fab blanket scarf click HERE.
To link to the seller of my exact scarf on ebay click HERE.
Looks like it is a few dollars more, now $15.89 and free ship – still an awesome deal!
This ebay seller has bid options as well if you want to try to get it for less.
Mine took about 10 days to arrive. Here is how it was packaged – nice!
There are many other sellers selling these on ebay if you want to search around.
First, it’s HUGE! It measures 55″ X55″. For sure the largest scarf in my closet, in a good way!
Second, it is so nice and soft with a woven texture to it and very lightweight making it easy to style.
Third, I could not wait to get down to business and figure out how to wear it.
My kids thought I was a little nuts making them take these photos. My husband actually commented that he liked it, that’s a plus!
So here we go…!
THE Ask Suzanne Bell Scarf Tutorial
(I am thinking the first of many more!)
There are endless ways to tie a scarf, some more obvious than others.
For today, I’ll show you how to get this look:
and this look:
What is the difference?
The first look is wrapped and tied in front.
The second look is wrapped and tucked, no need to tie.
The difference a scarf can make!
I think it adds a little kick to any outfit, not to mention you will be warm as well!
I used the same scarf tying technique above to tie my Cecilia Prado Scarf (I am no longer calling it a wrap since I have yet to wear it as one)
Quick product update:
You may recall the plaid scarf from Target back on THIS post. Note: it is oblong NOT square HERE | $16.99 AND back in stock!
My girlfriend Amy was kind enough to send me a photo showing the Target plaid scarf so you all could see what it looks like.
She says the camel is a little darker than my ebay one which she liked with her coloring.
Thank you Amy!
Another reader (AKA my Mom) picked up the ZARA version, similar HERE
Here is how her’s looks on, as you can she, she has her own way of tying her scarf.
Similar to tutorial #1 with the knot higher on the neck and knots tied at the ends of the scarf to weigh it down.
How do you rock your scarf? Do share, I know we’d all love to hear!
