This Month's Favourite Scarf Knot - The Necklace Knot

Happy 1st December Everyone!

It's official, the festive season is upon us and this month we want to show you our most adored
'Necklace Knot'.
We love this knot as it is such a good way to accessorise an outfit!
For this style you will need a square scarf, medium or small. Fold it into a long band by folding the two opposite corners to the middle and fold again. At the centre of the band, make a knot, not too tight, which will look like a big bead. You can either wear this around your neck as shown in the first look or decide to make two more knots on each side of the middle knot as seen in the 2nd and 3rd looks... voila!

This Month's Favourite Scarf Knot - The Side Necktie Knot

Happy 1st of the month!

This month, we love side neckties. It's very stylish and you can do this knot with pretty much any scarf. All you need is a long scarf (or a square scarf folded into a long scarf). Tie it tight around your neck and knot at the side. You can then pull one side at the front and one at the back as worn by David Bowie below

Enjoy darlings

This Month's Favourite Scarf Knot - Scarf Bags

Happy 1st August!
This month we are all about knotting our silk scarves into bags. It is such a nice way to wear the scarves when it's too warm and it is also great to show off the pretty scarf prints! Here are two top knots created by Hermés...

You can create this style with a large or medium scarf. To start with, you will need to knot together two opposite corners making sure the knot is done at the ends which will create a long strap. Knot the remaining two corners together, this time making sure they are holding the content of the bag.

For this look, you will need a medium square scarf. Make a knot on each four corners about 10-15cm down then knot together the adjacent corners to create two straps.

Like these looks? Why not give it a try with our medium square scarves?

This Month's Favourite Scarf Knot - Holiday Tops

Dear Friends and Scarf Lovers

It's official, summer has arrived! And for this reason, this month we are sharing our favourite scarf knots to create holiday tops!

The first look is by the fabulous Peony Lim using our SS15 Mermaid Medium Scarf Scarf. For this look you will need to fold two of the opposite corners of the scarf towards the middle to make a thick band, tie it around your body with a big double knot or a bow at the front.

The second Look is by Hermès using two scarves: a long scarf and a medium square scarf. Simply tie the long scarf to one of the corners of the medium scarf and tie around the neck. Next, tie the corners of the square scarf together at the back so it holds around the body.

The last look is from our SS17 look book using two small silk scarves. Simply tie both scarves together on each top corners, and wear it with a belt around the waist to hold it together.

Have a lovely summer everyone, make sure to give these knots a go!

This Month's Favourite Scarf Knot - Braided in Scarf Hairstyles

Hello Everyone!

This month, as the weather gets warmer, we want to show you some great hairstyles using braided in scarves. There are a lot of different options using this idea, but we’ve narrowed it down to our favourite three looks.

The first look is inspired by Frida Kahlo’s legendary hairstyle. For this you will need a long scarf and you will need to prepare your hair in two high pigtails with a neat middle parting. Attach your scarf with each pigtail and then divide each pigtail in three parts, the scarf being one part and braid like you would normally do. Attach at the bottom with a hairband, and pin both braids at the top of your head in the style above.

For the second look you can use pretty much any large or medium silk scarf, which you will need to fold long ways into a band. Place the scarf on your head following your hairline, and attach underneath your hair at the back. Divide your hair in three equal parts and join the two ends of the scarves to them, braid together and attach at the bottom.

For the last look, you will need a square scarf or a long scarf (if you use a square scarf you will need to fold it in half to create a long scarf). Divide your hair into two parts with a neat middle parting, and attach with an elastic hairband to create two pigtails. Attach your scarf to both hairbands, making sure you have the same length on both sides. Braid each side with the scarf, and attach at the bottom with hairbands, and pin at the top, hiding the end of the braids and scarf underneath.

Like this look? Why not give it a try with our skinny cravats?

This Month's Favourite Scarf Knot - Evening Headscarves

Happy May Day Everybody!

This month, our focus is on evening headscarves.
We love how it's such a fun and quick way to dress up for an evening out. We've selected three different looks that we hope will inspire you all.

The first look uses a long scarf wrapped around the hair and knotted on the side of the head. You can let your hair loose at the back or have it up tucked inside, both styles work very well.

The second look is from our SS17 lookbook. We used an animal scarf that we tied around the hair and knotted at the top with a big bow. It is important with this look to cover the ears and to make sure the bow is neat and even.

The third look, worn by the fabulous Greta Garbo, is using a long scarf that goes around the head but doesn't cover the top. It is worn quite low, just above the eyebrows and it is knotted on the side.

Like this look? Give it a try with our Animal Scarves!

This Month's Favourite Scarf Knot - the 70's cravat knot

Happy 1st April dear readers!

This month we want to focus on the classy 70's cravat knot! It is probably one of the most versatile ways to wear a scarf. As you can see in the pictures below, you can pretty much wear this style for all occasions. From glamourous parties, to work and casual days out! 

For this look we recommend wearing a long scarf, you can also use a square scarf that is rolled inwards to make it long.

Headscarf knots as seen on the one and only Audrey Hepburn

Yes March is here and with it comes the occasional rain!!

Fear not dear friend, we have you covered as this month's scarf knot is the headscarf... and who better than the fabulous Audrey Hepburn to show us how to get the look!

For all the headscarves below, you will need square scarves (you can use various sizes depending on whether you want to wear the headscarf tight around the head or not).

You will need to fold the scarf into a triangle by taking each opposite corners and placing it on your head with the fold line following your hairline. You can then either knot underneath your chin at the front or decide to go around the neck and tie the scarf at the back.

Enjoy!

This Month's Favourite Scarf Knot - Scarf Knots To Make Pretty Summer Tops

It's finally the holiday season and if you are planning to go away this Summer,
these will be great knots to know!

 For the first one, you will need two small silk scarves and a belt. Knot the top right corner of the first scarf with the top left corner of the second scarf. Do the same with the other two top corners, this will create the neckline. Put your head through, the knots should be on your shoulders, tie the belt around your waist to hold the top.

 This last knot can be tied using a medium or a large square scarf. Hold the scarf from the two top corners in front of you, tie a knot on each side, roughly 30cm down each corners (make sure they are at equal heights). The lower you tie the knots, the lower the neckline of the top will be. Holding the two knotted corners, wrap around your neck and tie one last knot behind to hold. Wrap the two bottom corners around your waist and hold the scarf in place with a belt.

 For the second style, you will need a large square scarf, at least 120cm wide along the edges, the larger the scarf the better! Fold the scarf into a triangle and hold the scarf over your chest with the right angle pointing down.

You should have both corners up on your chest at this stage, simply tie a knot to hold, you can also use a pretty brooch instead!

April's Favourite Scarf Knot - The Turban

It's official, Spring is upon us!
To celebrate we want to share our favourite head scarf: The Turban

We love turbans here at the CFM Studio! Not only can they rescue a bad hair day, they can also be worn in the evening as a glamorous head piece, à la Grace Kelly (see below).

In essence, the turban is quite a simple knot to create. All you need is a long scarf. Depending on it's width, you might want to fold it in half lengthwise. Line up the centre of the scarf with the base of you head. Lift each side up to cover your ears, twist at the top and knot at the back.

For an illustrated 'how to tie a turban knot' and more, visit our Scarf Knot page here.
Enjoy!

February's Favourite Scarf Knot - The Bandana Style Knot

Happy February everyone!

Let’s start the month with one of our favourite scarf knots, The Bandana Style Knot!

It is a personal favourite, I could almost call it my go-to knot! I love how it adds a dash of colour to an everyday outfit :-)

This style is very simple to do and it can be achieved using a square scarf of any size!

They all start the same way; First, fold your square scarf in half from one corner to the other to form a triangle. Bring the two corners which are furthest away from each other over your shoulders and around your neck.

For smaller scarves, simply tie a knot behind your neck adjusting the front to create some attractive folds.

For larger scarves, wrap the two corners around your neck and bring them back over to the front, then tie them into a simple knot or a bow.

You can also knot each corner individually to give them a little weight or wear it loose over your shoulders as seen below in the last photo by Hermes.

As you can see, there are many possibilities!

Our favourite scarf knots for the festive season!

As you all know scarves can be worn in so many ways, they are amazing! What I love in Winter is a silk scarf can be worn more as a star accessory as opposed to keeping you warm ( They can do too, but let's be frank nothing better than wool when it's really cold!) Below is a small collection of scarf knots ideas, from the famous Fridah Kahlo head scarf style (Tutorial here), to Juliane Moore's very stylish pussy bow with a white scarf on a stylish LBD, to Susie Lau wearing a square scarf as a top below, such a nice way to show off a print. 

My favourite look of all though will have to be this one below, Susie Lau wearing her whole collection of Hermes scarves all tied together into one evening dress, truly amazing!!
