I promised a while back I’d show you another tie for a large scarf. This one, the “Animal Spirit” stole from L’affaire cashmere is one of my very favorites. It’s super soft, extremely light, and I’ve been wearing it several times a week. Right now, L’affaire cashmere is offering 12% off of all products listed on the website, and gift of a pure silk scarf as well with any purchase. Just use code vd14. This offer is valid until February 10. Shipping is always free, worldwide.
As I’ve mentioned before, I’ve come to believe that wearing scarves and keeping my neck warm in chilly weather helps to ward off illness. But I also have an aversion to anything that feels too bulky or confining around my neck, so have learned several ties that accommodate this preference. While the resulting tie may look like a lot of bulk around the neck, I hardly notice that I’m wearing a scarf at all.
Begin by draping the scarf around the neck with one end quite short. Twisting the scarf a few times as you go (this helps reduce volume) wrap loosely once…
…then twice around the neck.
Both ends will now be short.
Grab one of the loops, and pass one of the ends down through that loop only.
Then grab the other loop, and pass the other end downward through that one.
Adjust as needed.
Et voilà! This will be included in your final exam.
