I love the magic scarves can work but seldom wear them around my neck in hot weather. My style tip of the month is how I style my scarves during the summer.
Welcome to your monthly style guide for women over fifty. Pam of Over 50 Feeling 40 and I are sharing our best style tips to bring you a month of head-turning style.
The older I get, the less I like the look of my upper arms. I’ve started using small resistance bands to tone them but honestly, it’s an uphill battle and nothing will change my aging skin.
I love to use pretty silk scarves as wraps but hate how they slip off. Here’s how I fixed that problem.
Choose a very large square scarf. Fold in half into a rectangle and tie small square knots with the corners on each side. Square knots will not slip out. Cross left over right then right over left, and tug tight.
I also love using scarves to cover my hair. Being at the beach, windy days or just driving, tangles and damages my baby fine, thinning hair.
Heres a favorite way I tie a scarf to protect my hair and cover a bad hair day. I’m using my favorite Herme’s scarf that my husband surprised me with several Christmases ago.
Fold a square scarf into a triangle. Place the center of fold low and straight across your forehead. Then bring the sides back and wrap them over the long triangle at the back of your head. Then tie them into a snug square knot at the base of your scull.
Many times I leave it full in the back, but today I loosely braided the ends for a more compact look. You can also tuck the ends up under the back.
Do you wear scarves in the summer?
Now let’s pop over to see Pam’s style tip of the month.
