Little Black Suit & Vintage Carré in a butterfly knot

This knot can look bold and flamboyant with a bright or colorful scarf, but for today's LBS episode I decided on a neutral CW for an understated and elegant look. To me, the effect is similar to the one wearing an elaborate silk blouse, only in a more unexpected way.

  1. This is lovely. I like the knot. Did you use a scarf ring?

  2. Thank you BM. I plan a 'how to' video on this knot, hopefully I'll be able to post it in the next couple of days. And yes, I used a ring.. the Regate!

  5. Hi MaiTai, I love this knot, very pretty! Excellent idea for LBS to spice up boring black (which is all too typical for me), especially at the start of a work week. Would love to see the "how to" video, I doubt I can do it on my own! :)

  6. Thank you dreamdoll. You've stated the reason for this column... so many of us wear a black uniform (love it myself!) and with a little extra touch it can become our own so easily. A 'How to' will hopefully follow tomorrow :-)

  7. MaiTai--I wear all black to work
    and I am so grateful to you for spicing up my plain old boring wardrobe. I am finding so many different ways to wear the same clothes but now thanks to you they are H'd up! My co-workers are asking and I have mentioned your post many times--I'm sure there will be many more scarves in the future.

  9. That couldn't be simpler or more chic! Thank you for the how-to video. It really polishes off that outfit beautifully. I wonder how the butterfly knot would work with a 90? Would probably be a bit too pouffy.

  10. Thank you eliz, so pleased you like the video. As you thought, the butterfly knot is not ideal for 90 Carrés. Mainly because the diameter of the scarf ring isn't really big enough to make it work. It is beautiful with Cotton Carrés though! :-)
