1 Scarf, 30 Ways:
The Coutourist Challenge Part 5

Sunday, October 25, 2015

We made it! Today's post marks the last of my looks for The Coutourist Challenge, and I truly hope you've enjoyed and discovered some new styling ideas from this experience. My final few looks are compiled together to show you how to take your Coutourist scarf through an entire day of travel in style, from packing your morning bag to that evening sip of wine.

PS. Read the full post to find out how you can get free shipping + a surprise gift from Coutourist!

The Hermès Twilly Wrap.

There is no doubt that Hermès is the leader when it comes to scarf style, so I've recreated one of my favorite wraps by the iconic brand for this week's challenge. The night before any day of travel,  I make sure to pack my bag with all the essentials to avoid rushing out the door the next morning. Next time you're prepping for the day, give your travel bag an upgrade by wrapping your scarf around the handles for that Hermès-inspired pop of color.

The Headscarf (Part 2).

As you venture out to your first destination, keep your hair in check against that morning breeze with a bold headscarf. This easy look is also the perfect solution to staying photo-ready on an unexpected bad hair day.

The Statement Bag.

An afternoon of shopping is always on my itinerary for travel, and now your scarf can make it even easier. With two easy knots, the scarf becomes a lightweight bag to hold just what you need for a hands-free, seamless shopping trip.

The Infinity Scarf.

You can probably already tell that I prefer basic outfits when packing for travel, so a lightweight scarf ensures that no two outfits look the same. For  this look I've tied my skinny fold into an infinity scarf to create a simple accessory with an eye-catching statement.

The New Watchband.

After an afternoon of exploring, I like to take a short break back at my hotel to work on content and organize for the following days. Wherever your workspace lies, stay on schedule in style by replacing your watchband with a silk scarf. The result is a colorful accessory that changes each new time you re-tie it.

The Evening Necktie.

Finally, finish off your trip with dinner and wine in your best evening outfit. Since my wardrobe gravitates towards monochrome, I've created an easy necktie look with my Coutourist scarf to add a bit of personality.

  1. So much inspiration! I've only ever thought to use it as a headband aside from the usual round the neck uses. I love the handbag idea over the straps. At one stage I used to tie a vintage scarf around the handle of an old Miu Miu so it would drape down. But that is about as adventurous as I've ever gotten.


    1. That sounds lovely too! Hope this post gave you some more ideas :)

  2. You are doing amazing things with your scarf :-) Thank you for those great ideas my dear :-)
