Foulard de la semaine

The weather has turned blessedly cooler, cool enough to pull out the silks again. I know it won’t last, so I’m enjoying while I can.

I tried something a bit different with this one. Usually I fold diagonally into an oblong shape to start, but this time I rolled in from opposite sides, and then tied in a single knot. Surprisingly, it stayed in place all day without fiddling.

    This is my standard tie, like how it shows the border, stays in place and draws the eye up. You can also knot it from there to almost a ‘bow tie’ effect.

    Lovely scarf!

    Looks very simple and clean — features the hem/border very nicely. That scarf is perfect for fall — all the leaves changing colour. I don’t s’pose they do that much where you are, do they?

    That is a gorgeous scarf, MIss DS.

    That is one of the loveliest scarves I have ever seen! Very interesting way to wear it too, you will be getting into the origami next.

    I am so happy that summer is seeming like it is on the decline so we can bring out the scarves and maybe even the sweaters. Le sigh!

    This is a really beautiful scarf and such a great and simple way to wear it.

    duchesse – I’ll try that “bow tie” sometime.

    cybill – thank you! This is one of my very favorite scarves, not only for the color but for the autumn leaves theme.

    LBR – don’t get overconfident, though. Before you know it the Santa Ana’s will be sweeping in, and we’ll be back up in the 90’s!

    And thanks!

    materfamilias – thanks! We don’t get the fall foliage in great volume, but some trees will turn color (though far less vivid than in cooler climes) any time from late Oct – late Nov. I planted a Liquidamber tree in my backyard just for some autumn color.

    wendyb – thanks!

    miss janey – thank you.

    LBR – the lack of proper autumn weather is the only thing (aside from the traffic) that I really hate about LA.

    A unique and very attractive fold. Thanks for the inspiration!

    Would that be too much for a man to wear? Because now I am really thinking about it…

    sue – thanks!

    thomas – if anyone could make it work, you could. Go the the website, and the “travel the world” link. You’ll find some great pics of men wearing silk scarves in very stylish ways.

    Ooh, very nice, super cool, Dejapseu. I am now wondering if I have something which will work in this style for an important client lunch and a PR meeting this week. Thanks -ever inspiring. Your styles get an outing in London. How many fashion bloggers can say that, eh? 🙂
