Perfect Party Scarf Knots

Scarves are an absolute fashion accessory must. Not only do they come in almost endless designs, patterns, colours, shapes and sizes but they can also be worn in a number of different ways. In fact how you wear your scarf can be almost important as the style of the scarf itself. If you’re going to a party, scarves can be the perfect way to enhance a party outfit, particularly if you tie it in an appropriate manner. To ensure your scarf is knotted befittingly for a party take a look at the following different knots that can be used for parties.

The Bandana-Style Party Scarf

The summer is here and there couldn’t be a cooler way to show up to a party than with your scarf tied in a bandanna-like way. Simply fold your scarf in half (a scarf that’s on the slimmer side works better in a bandana-style knot), centre the scarf around the nape of your neck, collect each side above one ear, tie a double knot and either let the ends hang loosely down one side or twist the sides and tuck them in. Either way, a funky summertime look is achieved through your scarf that is perfect for a party.

Wearing A Hijab Scarf To A Party

If you’re looking for a tasteful, classy and ultra-glamorous accessory to wear to a forthcoming party then look no further than an eveningwear hijab. These elegant headscarves will bring a new dimension to a classy evening gown of glitzy party dress. But how do you tie a beautiful eveningwear hijab?

This easy-to-follow hijab tutorial provides you with a step by step guide on how to tie a hijab whilst retaining a gorgeous, stunning look. What’s particularly great about this tutorial is that it teaches you how to fasten a beautiful silk hijab with a pair of ultra-glam, dangly earrings – Could there be a more appropriate way to tie a knot in a hijab for a party?

The Celebrity Style

Turning up at a party dressed like a celebrity is always going to be well-received so it makes sense to tie your scarf using the celebrity style. For this knotting technique to be most effective you’ll need an eye-catching and striking scarf, the kind the likes of Angelina Jolie or Kate Moss could easily be photographed in. Simply wrap the scarf around your neck twice and then tuck one end around the knot, like the technique used on the tutorial above. And there you have it, a scarf look for for not just a party but the celebrity circuit too!

Hottest Scarf Celeb Looks

Why do celebrities look so darn good? Is it their glossy hair? Their high cheek bones? Legs that seem to go on for miles perhaps? Or is it their choice of fashion? Celebrities do look good, period, and as not all celebrities are born with a natural size 6 figure and skin as smooth and blemish-free as a baby’s bottom, we have to assume it’s their distinct and enviable sense of fashion that propels them to goddess-looking domains.

Accessories play a pivotal role in a celebrity’s style wardrobe and none more so than scarves. Have a look at the following hottest scarf celebrity looks.

Heidi Klum’s Bohemian-Style Scarf Glamour

Okay so we said celebrities aren’t born with legs that go on for infinity and cheek bones that defy gravity but we’ll make an exception for Heidi Klum. Asides her natural good looks, the stunning model boasts an impeccably great sense of style.

This style was typified on camera recently at an airport in Cannes, where Heidi was snapped in a stylish printed jumpsuit, a short black leather jacket, topped off perfectly with a black and yellow printed scarf. We have to admit that this leather jacket, printed jumpsuit and brightly-coloured patterned scarf combo is one of the hottest celebrity scarf looks ever caught on camera!

Katie Holmes Denim On Denim

Not many can get away with wearing denim on denim. For us mere mortals wearing a denim shirt or jacket with denim jeans would make us look like a tad of a hill billy! Celebrities don’t seem to have the same problem, particularly not Katie Holmes. Perhaps Ms Holmes’ managed to pull off the multi-denim look with such enviable passion and conviction by breaking up the jeans and denim shirt with a colourful patchwork scarf.

The beautiful long silk scarf sported a plethora of patterns in pink, blue and cream. Kate wrapped the lengthy scarf once around her neck and let the ends hang loosely, almost reaching her knee – some feat when you’re 5 foot 9!

Sarah Michelle Gellar

Isn’t it almost uncanny how celebrities still manage to look incredible when they are pregnant or not long become a mum? Sarah Michelle Gellar is certainly no stranger to gaining attention through her great looks and fantastic sense of fashion even when wrapped up in the joys of motherhood. One of the hottest celebrity scarf looks has to be Sarah Michelle’s ultra-casual but incessantly cool outfit she wore whilst spending time with her daughter in LA. The star wore a black maxi dress and cropped denim jacket. The look was really brought to life by a beautiful purple and blue scarf the actress had tied around her neck. The scarf was ruffled seductively in what appears to be loosely wrapped around her neck with the ends left hanging alluringly down the front of the black maxi dress.

With so many colours, patterns, materials and styles of scarves on offer, with a little fashion creativity and imagination, you too can achieve a hot celebrity look this summer by making a scarf part of your outfit.

Wear Your Scarf Like Royalty

Want to look like royalty? You can forget shoes with four-figure price tags, Armani coats, one-off designer dresses and handbags that cost as much as a house, as to really look like a member of the royal family, it’s all in how you wear your scarf.

Don’t believe us? Take a look at the following royals who have used the humble scarf to define their own individual style – a style that you can replicate.

Kate Middleton Looks Bonny in Tartan

Kate Middleton

It was a chilling spring day when the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge visited Dumfries House in Ayrshire last year. As the royal couple went to greet the throng of locals that had gathered at the house, Kate looked typically stunning, her bright orange, knee-length Armani woollen coat, high black boots and suede black gloves really ensured the Duchess stood out. Though we have to admit what really stole the show was the beautiful tartan scarf Kate wore tumbling down the front of her coat. Kate’s tan checked scarf was tied in one simple knot round her neck with the ends of the scarf left to hang down.

The ‘Kate Middleton scarf look’ can be achieved by wearing a warm and handsome tan tartan scarf in a skip knot round the neck and left on the outside of the coat.

You too can create a queen-inspired look by wearing a beautifully plain hijab. Whether you want to replicate Rania’s style entirely by wearing a jijab around your head or prefer to wrap the scarf casually round the neck and shoulders, with hijabs you have this unique versatility that will sharpen your style impeccably.

Emulate Princess Diana’s Unique Style

Princess Diana

When it comes to members of the royal family who achieved the fashion status usually confined to models and designers, the late Princess Diana was the forerunner. From stunning blue outfits to that unmistakable short crop of blonde hair, Diana took royal fashion to new heights.

Princess Diana regularly wore scarves to complement outfits and became widely recognised for her penchant for wearing head scarves. Take a look at this stunning white, lacy head scarf Diana wore to an event. Her look has been replicated by millions around the world, including Kate Middleton herself. Kate has been known to emulate Diana’s style in the past and looked strikingly similar to the late Princess when she donned a beautiful white headscarf on an event in Kuala Lumpar, Malaysia.

It just goes to show what you can achieve with the humble scarf.
