Scarf Twist DIY

How many times have you looked through the beautiful pages of the J.Crew catalog and wondered how they style every page so effortlessly? I know I wonder that every time I look at it and I'm a fashion stylist. haha. photo (11)

One of the styling details that stood out in the latest J.Crew catalog was the way they tied their scarves. Scarves are a beautiful and functional accessory  to wear as we approach the cooler months. I put together a simple little DIY on how you can get the twisted scarf look. If you're tired of simply wrapping the scarf around your neck or always having to rely on infinity scarves to look good try this trick.

1. Pick a scarf that is pretty long. I used a light-weight cotton scarf, but a thick wool scarf or even a silk scarf would be great with this technique.

2. Tie the scarf to a handle. In this case I just used a door knob.
