Mexicali Blues Style: SCARVES!

Mexicali Blues Style: SCARVES!

Nov 24, 2020

 

Over the years we have found many different styles of scarves that we have brought into our eclectic collection! Stunning and affordable fashion scarves that are versatile and can be used for much more than a simple neck scarf. Many can be tied around the waist as a bohemian belt, or they can be tied in such a way to become a head scarf or unique hippie headband. We’ve found a few styles that we like to throw on any time! Find a video tutorial here and peek at these sweet styles below.

 

Boho Best Dressed Vest

We love this unique turn on how to wear a scarf! It’s the perfect look for when you want to show off that gorgeous pattern, but maybe the traditional neck scarf feels bulky or just isn’t good for your routine that day. See our video tutorial here!

Step 1: Fold the scarf in half, tying the top corner of each side together (if your scarf has fringe, use that; if it doesn't, just tie the corners a couple of times so you can be sure they'll stay.)
Step 2: Fold scarf in half again, keeping the knot you just tied on top.
Step 3: Tie the top corner of each side together again (your first knot will be inside or next to this new one)
Step 4: Pull the sides of the scarf apart, so the knot you have created is in the middle.
Step 5: You will see that you have created two armholes; put your arms through and go rock this vest, impressing everyone with your style and ingenuity!

 

 The Boho Bandita

It’s a simple process to look this good! We love this one for when it’s extra chilly and you need a bit more coverage! Watch the video tutorial here!

Step 1: Place unfolded scarf behind neck, and pull so one end is longer than the other.
Step 2: Wrap the longer end once around  your neck once or twice and bring to the front.
Step 3: Grasp one side of the loose end and tuck into the wrapped portions.
Step 4: Fluff it up and step out in style!

 

The Knot Fade Away

This classic scarf style has a little more to it than meets the eye. Do you always do the classic wraparound look but halfway through the day you have to readjust? Then this look is for you because it won't unravel on you! Watch the video tutorial here!

Step 1: Place unfolded scarf behind neck, and bring the loose ends in front of you.
Step 2: Cross ends loosely over your collarbone and toss the ends back over the opposite shoulders.
Step 3: Cross the ends over the same way behind your neck, and bring the ends back over your shoulders to the front.
Step 4: Making sure the ends are close to the same length, pull out one of your newly formed loops, circling the loose end up through it and back out.
Step 5: Repeat on the other side.

 

The Loop-de-Loop

This is similar to our last styling effort but it has a slightly different take! If you’re a fan of the infinity scarf then this one's for you! Watch the video tutorial here!

Step 1: Place unfolded scarf behind neck, and bring the loose ends in front of you
Step 2: Tie the ends in a simple knot (we chose a double-knot, to be sure it would stay!), creating a loose loop
Step 3: Divide the large loop into two smaller ones by twisting the middle as you bring it back over your head.
Step 4: Fluff it up and step out in style!

 

The Party Pretzel!

The fun of the party with all its twists and turns! Watch the video tutorial here!

Step 1: Fold scarf in half.
Step 2: Wrap halved scarf around neck so there is a loop on one end.
Step 3: Bring loose ends through the loop
Step 4: Bring your hand up through the new smaller loop that has been created, allowing it to wrap around your hand/wrist
Step 5: Twist your hand with the scarf wrapped around it, creating a new twisted loop
Step 5: Pull the loose end through that loop, and repeat, twisting as you go until your knot chain is the desired length!

 

The Rambling Rose

For some bohemian flower child vibes you can dress up any look with this gorgeous bloom! Watch the video tutorial here and for a unique headband idea watch this tutorial!

Step 1: Place unfolded scarf behind neck, and bring the loose ends in front of you.
Step 2: Bring ends off to the side where you want your bloom to be, and begin twisting the them together from the top down.  
Step 3: Once you have twisted down to the bottom of the scarf ends, begin twisting the new hanging end into a rose-shaped coil, arranging it with your hand as you go.
Step 4: Tuck the tail behind and down the loop that is around your neck.
