office style how to style!

so yesterday i was walking around the building taking random photos and saw our office coordinator wearing this adorable scarf as a turban.  i’ve seen people wear scarves like this before but i’ve never been able to figure out how to do it – luckily she was kind enough to show me!


if the scarf is square, start by folding it in half into a triangle shape.  this scarf was particularly large so she folded it over a little bit to make it smaller.


next drape the scarf over your head with straight edge at the back of your head and the triangle point hanging in front (it’s ok if it hangs over your face, you can fix that later).


take the ends in your hands and bring to the front as pictured, and make one knot at the front of the head:


wrap the remaining fabric back around your head and tie in a knot at the back:



tuck the knot and extra fabric underneath the turban, and do the same with the fabric hanging in the front.


voila! thanks for the tutorial, A.!

now i just need the loving leopard scarf so i can re-create this look:
