Closet Discovery

A recent Spring purge and cleaning of my closet led me to rediscover these lovely little Hermes Cartes A’ Nouer, or Hermes Knotting Cards. Ironic, since I was actually searching for my own lightweight scarves… a great way to dress in these up coming transitional months. I don’t know if would actually wear many of these suggested styles, but they are so pretty to look at. Do you tend to stick with the basics when it comes to scarves, or do you play it up, just like these cards?

  9. I love to play with mine. I can't really pull off the halter look, though I adore it. You'll often see me with mine tied around as a belt. Love all these chic looks!!!

  10. So pretty! I've gotten away from these types of scarves, but perhaps it's time to bring them out again – thanks for the inspiration..

  11. I can't tell you how many times I have looked at these creative photos!! I adore scarves and wear one almost every day for 3 seasons. I do try and mix it up but draw the line at actually attire!

    I love scarves as halters! I'm not into the head cap but I would wear it as a pony-tail accessory! Oh, and I even use them as runners on my table for a punch of color and pattern. Great post!!

    I'm pretty traditional when it comes to my scarves, but love the idea of tying one as a belt!

  16. I love scarfs. I tend to wear them a lot since I'm always chilly.

    I'm normally really boring with them, but have rocked them as a belt in the past.

    Adore the head wrap, and belting jeans or capris! The one shoulder looks great don't know if I can pull it together , so it won;t slip, etc.

    I've definitely started wearing more scarves lately, but I've still basically stuck with the "put it around your neck" option.

  20. The second look cracks me up. I totally would have done this in college. In fact I wore less.

    Not so much anymore. I prefer scarves around my neck, or maybe as a belt.

  21. I definitely rock the belt look often! And absolutely would have rocked the "my scarf = my shirt" look in college. Too funny! I wished I could be as bold as J Lo and do the scarf around the head look! Too pretty.

  22. Oh man, I need some scarves in my life! What a great and underutilized accessory.

  23. I have drawers full of scarves but can never get around to wearing them. Need to start getting more creative!

  24. These are so pretty. I'd definitely do the belt and definitely would love to try some of these other ideas- scarves are just so gorgeous-I hate not using them enough.

  26. I have definitely worn it as a bandeau(back in my skinner-washboard abs days) that was sniffle sniffle…too many years ago. But have a few Hermes scarves and they looked beautiful with a tan, and white pants….very chic. The most I would do now is wear them through belt loops which always looks great and tied onto the end of my birkin bag. A scarf is a great investment because they are so classic and timeless. Enjoyed the post.

  32. I've worn scarves as belts but if I tried to wear mine as a garment….the look wouldn't be pretty 🙂

    It's interesting — I love scarves (the prints, the beautiful fabrics) but I never wear them. My mom has a gorgeous collection….perhaps I should borrow and start experimenting!

    When I was younger I would wear the halter look. Today I just stick with them as neck wear and as belts. Really good post….k

  38. Lovely! I wonder what else lays in the depth of your closet. When I unearthed mine there are only old t-shirts hidden somewhere….
