Birthdays, FASHION, Hermes, Uncategorized MANY WAYS TO WEAR AN HERMES SCARF 3 November 2009

So here’s just a couple of ways I’ve been using to tie/wear my Hermes scarves.. what an awesome gift from Chris! 🙂 They’re REALLY versatile, and it’s fun playing around with them and being creative to see what combinations I can come up with. I still plan to tie the 2 scarves together to make another top and also a little dress, but haven’t gotten round to that yet.

The Looks below are only about 1/10 of the ways you can wear an Hermes scarf. I love how they can really dress up an outfit, or even be an outfit 😉 They’re also quite small so it’s easy to pop one in your bag and whip it out when it’s a little chilly. I know technically you can use other scarves, but nothing out there beats the fineness and quality of an Hermes silk scarf… the drape of the fabric isn’t the same and the prints are so special. I’m looking forward to keeping and wearing these for a long time until they become vintage scarves, then I can pass them on to my daughter 🙂

Hermes scarf… as a belt

Worn as a belt tied around my waist, with matching Hermes leather bracelet
and my Guess top that I’ve had for 12 years (!!!!!).

Worn with my Marc Jacobs jacket, tied around the waist as a side-apron,
and matching Hermes leather bracelet.

Hermes scarf… as a neck scarf

Worn as a bib with a free eBay polo shirt and jeans, heh

As a standard scarf with Hermes turquoise scarf ring and Papinelle (super soft) top

Tied into a ‘friendship knot’ and worn with Alannah Hill top

Hermes scarf… as a top

Worn as a halter top, tied in place with Hermes
leather bracelet (used as a choker/necklace)

Closer pic

What it looks like from behind

Closeup of the Hermes scarf tied onto the Hermes
leather bracelet (wound twice round my neck)

Worn as a little capelet with $10 white tank top, Sass & Bide
white jeans, Playboy boots and Louis Vuitton trouville bag

The best way to display a scarf’s gorgeous design, IMHO!

Closeup. I just knotted the ends together….

….and stuck my arms through the holes, and, voila!

    You can make it into a dress with 2 scarves too!

    I think you should send this entry to Hermes.

      Heh I don’t think Hermes bothers about people wearing their scarves.. they’re way too cool for that, lol!

      The friendship knots look really nice on scarves IMHO, much nicer than just pulling it into a regular knot!

    You are very clever, and all the styles look great on you. My favourite way would have to be as a headscarf, crossed over at the front and knotted at the back. Wear while driving a sporty convertible above the French Riviera, hehe!

    Wow I never thought of so many ways to wear the scarf. If you say that it’s just 10% possible ways I admit that I know nothing about the scarves. Top looks sexy and cool outfit for a party. Still don’t get how u tied it around the neckless so that the knot is not visible. Gonna practice friendship know tonight on my only square scarf.
    PS: Which lipstick do u have on the last photo? Number and brand. I was looking for such shade. BTW it absolutely suits the scarf you wear.
