On October 9, give a scarf to the person you love most

Sant Dionís Day, October 9, is a very important and special day for Valencians. It is the day of the autonomous community, a day to eat “piuletes and tronadors” (marzipan sweets), but especially it is the day of “mocadorà”. The latter refers to the word mocador, handkerchief in Valencian, and tradition dictates that a silk handkerchief must be given as a gift.

Handkerchiefs and scarves are a very versatile, comfortable and ideal accessory to complete your looks and give them a unique and special touch. For this reason, and with the arrival of Sant Dionís, at Il Baco da Seta online fashion store for women we wanted to prepare a post with some ideas for wearing the scarf in different ways.

The European Loop

One of the most common, elegant shapes that helps to cover you from the cold with style is the “European Loop” model. All you have to do is divide the scarf into two equal parts, place it behind the neck, widening the loop, and insert the loose ends through the loop.

The Shell Roll

A simple and perfect option to wear the scarf is the “The Shell Roll” model. To get this knot you just have to place the scarf around your neck with unequal ends. Fold the long end twice around the neck until knotted at the back of the neck.

The Infinity

A way to keep the scarf without worrying about it falling off or losing its shape is the “The Infinity” model. You just have to tie the scarf at the ends, place it around your neck, cross it and put it over your head. Simple and ideal for all outfits!

The Fake Knot

This knot is perfect for giving a touch of originality to your most elegant and sober outfits. Plus it's very easy to do! To achieve this, you just have to loosely tie a knot at the bottom of one end of the scarf, then insert the other end inside the knot and tighten it to your liking.
