Last week I shared two scarf tying methods that I use with my thicker scarves and have loved seeing your feedback on those! This is a different method I’ve been doing for 10+ years now and love how it works with lighter weight scarves that aren’t too chunky. It’s also very functional for when you need some coverage for warmth, like when wearing a coat with V-cut lapels that doesn’t actually cover up the chest.

You can watch my Instagram video to see a step-by-step of how I do this tying method. It may look a little more twisty and complicated than the other two, but I promise, once you practice 2 to 3 times you’ll have it down by muscle memory!

    Hi Jean!

    I’ve always wondered how you decided to pick Size 24 for most skinny jeans – According to your ‘about me’ page your hips are about 32 in – and most Size 24 skinny jeans are for hips 34 in – do they not fall off for you? I find myself having to pick Size 23. Do you usually have to wear a belt with Size 24? Thank you!

      Hi Serenity! I size down to 23 in Madewell only, but a 24 in most other brands fits me snugly! I also haven’t updated my about page and my waist is closer to 25 inches now, with a size 24 denim still fitting well.

    I would love to know more about the gloves, beanies and winter accessories you wear. I find it hard to find warm gloves that fit my small hands and beanies that fit my head. Are there head sizes for beanies??

    Hi Jean, can’t wait to try this scarf tying style! I have an unrelated question/request: Are there any exercises you do, or tips you could give us for walking in heels? I have always marveled at how chic your heels look in photos and visualized myself immediately twisting my ankle if I put them on. In the past I have only worn wedges and 1-2″ boots, but, being 4’10,” I really want to branch out into different styles and taller heights. Thanks so much in advance!

      Hi Rose! I’m afraid I don’t have any specific tips as I just wore heels a lot starting in my teens, so I’m used to walking in them at this point. But recently I’ve been wearing flats most of the time for practicality. Sorry I can’t be of more help!
