Here is a great idea for any square scarf that you have lying around; perhaps one that you have not worn in a while. Maybe you can even borrow one from an older relative. This look will accent any outfit for a great weekend casual look and will compliment a cardigan and jeans or a comfortable skirt.
Though you can wear your scarf tied in this fashion with any top, if you are attempting to keep with a '50s theme, opt for a V-neck top or cardigan for the most authentic look.
Fold The Scarf To A Point
Place the unfolded scarf on a flat surface, and fold it in half to make a triangle shape. Be sure to match the tips.
Fold the triangular tip inward to meet the straight edge of the scarf, creating somewhat of a trapezoid shape. Fold it in half again, if necessary, to create a rectangular shape.
Hold the scarf with your thumb and forefinger on the triangular tip and lift it from the flat surface.
Flip the scarf over so that the side showing more folds is now facing the floor, being sure to hold it securely so that it does not come apart.
With the now smooth edge facing you, put the scarf around your neck with the triangular edge against the nape or back of your neck, just below your hairline.
Using both hands, pull the hanging edges of the scarf forward toward the front of your neck, crossing the right edge over the left.
Tie a simple knot with the free edges.
Gently move the scarf to the right or left of center--by grasping the knot and going in either direction--and allow the pointed edges to hang freely for a cute '50s-style look.
