Hello I'm image consultant Susan Bigsby at susanbigsby.com. In tis clip we're going to show you how to tie a silk scarf. Now we could be here all day long typing silk scarves because there are many many sizes and shapes of silk scarves but I think I'll show you the newest shape which is the more elongated shape that they're featuring so much in all the magazines right now. This one is a kind of a pucci style and the colors are very pretty in it. You always want to choose a scarf that has beautiful colors near your face because we always like to wear our best colors near our face. So I'm going to put this one with Angelia. She has the perfect dress to feature this scarf on. It's very simple, tubular and plain and it's a great dress to dress up with an elongated scarf. So one of the newer ways to do it, several ways, we'll show you all the ways. We could of course simply drape it and let it hang but I don't think that does very much really. I love it this way when it's thrown behind the shoulders. That's really pretty so when she walks it's really dramatic and quite pretty. Then she can bring that around and we can tie it again in the front and it gives it a very different look and actually this is the look I like under jackets because it fills in that collar space in a jacket and it looks quite chic and you can tie it in a knot if you want to, a square knot or otherwise. Let's talk about a square knot. Do you know what a square knot is? It comes from boating knots or yachting knots in the days of the sailors. You take one side, you put it over the other side, the piece that stays, that is on top stays on top. That's the easiest way to remember. What's on top stays on top. Bring it around, wrap it underneath and you have a perfect square knot. Then you can flair out the sides if you want to. You can put it on the side or leave it in the front however you choose. This is Susan Bigsby. Thanks for watching.
