Style inspriation: 10 ways to tie a vintage scarf

This year is Godiva's 10 year anniversary! This is a great achievment and we are so thankful to our customers.  So throughout the year we will be running promotions and special products for our wonderful customers.  

To start off the 10 year celebrations we are offering customers a lucky dip on our online shop - 3 vintage scarves for £10! We have a huge selection of scarves in lots of different colours and patterns, classic, retro, regal, floral and geometric.  

Vintage scarves are great for so many occasions.  They can add colour and a vintage twist to an outfit among many other things... We have come up with 10 ways to tie a vintage scarf to give you inspiration for your lucky dip purchase!

1. Do The Twist: Great for the beach or a festival.

An easy headband style. Fold the scarf so it is long and thin.  Start with the centre of the scarf at the nape of your neck and bring the two ends to the top of your head.  Twist them twice (or more if it is longer) and bring them back down to the nape of your neck. Tie it securely and tuck in the ends.

 2. Side Rosette: A popular choice. Add a bit of vintage glamour to your country walk or decorating the house to name but a few.

Fold the scarf so it is long and thin (if it is a square scarf fold it diagonally in to a triangle first - this will give you more length).  Put the scarf over your head and tie at the side.  Twist the ends round in to a rosette shape and tuck the ends in to secure it.  

 3. Roman Holiday: A simple way to add some style to a day outfit.

Simply wrap the scarf round your ponytail and let the corners hang by your ponytail.

 4. Bows Away: A cute retro look.

Fold the scarf so it is long and thin.  Start with the centre at the nape of your neck.  Take the ends to the top of your head and tie to the side.  Tie securely then tie in a big bow and tuck the ends in.  You can pull out the bow and shape it so it looks bigger.

5. Driving In My Car: A glamorous look for spring.  Imagine driving in the countryside with the car roof down!

Simply fold a square scarf in half so it is triangle shaped.  Put over your head and tie under your chin.  Don't forget the sunglasses to complete the look!

 6.  The Cowboy:  Add a vintage touch to any outfit.

Fold the scarf in to a triangle.  Have the tip of the triangle at your front and cross the ends behind your neck letting the corners hang at the front.

Use your scarf to accessorise!

7.  Bag Tie:  Tie a colouful scarf round the handle of your bag to add colour to a plain bag.

8.   Belt Up:  Put a scarf through the belt loops in your trousers and tie.  Looks great with jeans and denim shorts for a vintage touch.

 Don't want to wear your scarf?

9.  Wrap It Up: Why not use your vintage scarf to wrap presents.  Or wrap it round your lunch box like owner of Godiva, Fleur, did.  Who doesn't want to add a bit of vintage glamour to their lunch?

10.  Home Improvements:  Use your vintage scarf to tie a pretty bow round a plain glass vase.  A perfect affordable way to brighten up a room.

Now you have lots of uses for your vintage scarfs.  You can buy them online here.
