Capsule wardrobe # 63 - how to wear a dark scarf in a summery way? Part III

In a variaton of the previous post (how to wear a scarf with a dark background/border in a summery way), opting for the same black top as before, but this time adding a coral pair of jeans and matching lipstick for a summery touch.

Capsule pieces: black tank top and coral jeans
Shoes: black patent leather pumps
Accessories: Hermès 'Circuit 24 Faubourg' 90 Carré, clic H enamel bracelet in black and and clic clac H enamel bracelet in bleu indiens.
Scarf tying method: Pleated bow knot. Fold your scarf into rectangle and secure the ends in a criss-cross knot. Please click here for a how-to.
Scarf ring: MaiTai Collection horn shawl ring in black with sunshine

The instruction for this cute origami horse (I did not suceed 100%, but it was fun nevertheless) are no longer available on I saved them on my computer though, and if you would like a copy, please send me an email with 'Hermès origami horse' as subject, and I will mail you back a file with the how-to.

  1. Ah,easy,breezy as a summer's day dear friend! Somehow you always make it look so easy and not contrived! I love this silk for all of the different variations you have graced us with and think it will be a delightful transitional one as well. I cannot wait to see how that plays! Enjoy a lazy day by the pool an remember your sun screen and hat! Cheers to lazy summer days, T xx

    1. Happy lazy summer days cheers to you, my dear sweet Trudye! Looking forward to autumn plays with Ms Circuit too, she's such a great allround talent. In the meantime, keeping that sun screen at hand. Have a wonderful Sunday! xx

  2. I like the white jeans one the best! Thank you for showcasing a great summer look, Maitai.

  3. White jeans with Ascot knot is the best one for me!!!


  4. I like them all, but the coral is striking!

    1. The first vote for coral, thank you Lisa!

      black/coral/white: 0/1/2

  5. You know how much I love and admire your style and therefore of course all three looks are great and effortlessly chic. Actually quite jealous of those fabulous coral jeans, as I was looking for some colourful pieces on sale, but all I found was "neutrals". ;-) But if I had to choose a summer look out of these three I'd opt for the white jeans (another must have on my list). Have a great week, xox, Macs

    1. Awh Macs you are always so sweet and kind, thank you <3 Hope you will still find a coral pair of jeans. Mine were from Gerard Darel, and I saw lovely ones at Tommy Hilfiger too. Good luck! x

      black/coral/white: 0/1/3

  6. It´s not easy to choose, dear friend. They are all so pretty!
    I think my favourite is the first one (on the left).
    Hope you are enjoying great sunny days.
    Up here today it looked very much like Autumn: rain, and rain, and more rain....
    I wish you a lovely week ahead. Warm, Summer hug, Manuela

    1. Many thanks, dearest Manuela, so glad there is a vote for black too! Hope the rain has given way to blue skies and sunny days, sending some warm and happy sunshine your way x

  7. My dearest MaiTai,

    What an incredibly cheerful and beautiful post to come back to!! Missed you so much <3 I have missed so many posts and am very much looking forward to properly studying them all. How much I love and adore your outfit today - it is as happy and as chic as can be - only you could have created this fabulously summery delight. I truly love all three variations - chiming in with the other dear ladies from a previous post, you are the kindest-sweetest-most generous style goddess ever! I too love wearing black in the summer and your posts so clearly reveal the wonderful versatility of our new and beloved Circuit, of course in the hands of a style genius like you. Lastly, thank you and a huge bravo for your magnificent origami horse, it's perfect! Hope you've been well and enjoying the long summer days. Sending you all my love and a million happy hugs xox

    1. Welcome back, most dearest Scarf Enthusiast! You were much missed, and I am sure not just by me <3 It is such a joy to be Circuit twins with you, and very happy you like all three variations. You are too kind re the origami horse. I truly struggled with it at times, and I know the end result is not quite as it was meant to be.. still, it is so cute and in a CW I was also very tempted by! Have a most wonderful week back home, and happy summer days to you too xx

  8. Dear MaiTai,

    I love all 3 looks! If I have to choice I would say my first choice would be the one on the left. I wish the weather in my country is more scarf-friendly. It's so hot & humid where I am located!

    1. Many thanks! Will post a few more ways with scarves in hot and humid weather over the summer. Stay cool :)

      black/coral/white: 3/1/3

  9. Dear MAI TAI, all your solutions are nice but I prefer the first one (scarf as a belt) because here in Italy it's too hot to wear something around your neck.

    1. Thank you Rosi! Looking so much forward to wearing the Circuit in a cowboy knot, it is fabulous tied that way. No chance before autumn though, it is far to warm for it over here too.

      black/coral/white: 4/1/3

  10. Dear MaiTai,

    Thank you for another wonderfull post.
    All three are perfect but really love the white jeans one so vote for this one, so glad i saw this scarf on you as it was the design i least liked but when folded and i tried it on it has become a favourite now so thanks to you i love it, look forward to seeing what comes home with you for A/W

    Best Jane

    1. Thank you, dear Jane! So nice to be twins with you, and isn't it amazing how sometimes the least likely candidates become the ultimate favorites. It is wonderful to be taken by surprise. Merci for the vote, too.

      black/coral/white: 4/1/4

  11. Chere MAI TAI
    Pour moi c est la premiere presentation qui est ma preferée car le foulard autour du cou par cette chaleur pour moi c est impossible
    et puis comme vous le savez le noir est ma couleur favorite
    Bien amicalement

    1. Chère Myriam, moi j'adore le noir aussi, même en plein été! La chaleure ne nous permet pas non plus de porter un foulard autour du cou a ce moment. Aujourd'hui, je l'ai echangé pour un maillot. Restez frais! Amitiés

      black/coral/white: 5/1/4

  12. Those coral jeans really are to die for, you've conjured up the perfect match in your lipcolour! The more you wear this scarf the more I wish I had it amongst my lovelies.... Ax

    1. Hope to become twins with you on this one too one day, my dearest A. Glad Ms Coral got another vote, merci! x

      black/coral/white: 5/2/4

  13. Hi Maitai
    Firstly I am so glad I found your blog, I am having so much fun scrolling back through the archives! Many thanks for promptly and graciously answering my email with my scarf query (is it!)
    My vote is for the coral jeans as well.

    Warmest wishes

    1. A very warm welcome to you, dear Meg. So nice to know you are enjoying the older posts too, and glad our correspondance was helpful. Happy to see Ms Coral catching up!

      black/coral/white: 5/3/4

  14. Loved the white jeans, black belt, turquoise accessories. It let's the scarf shine!

    1. Thank you Gina, I am all for letting the scarf shine! ;)

      black/coral/white: 5/3/5

  15. I love the coral fresh and summery. All look good but those jeans get my vote! Thanks for all your ideas.

    1. Many thanks for the kind comment and for voting, dear Nancy!

      black/coral/white: 5/4/5

  16. Dearest MaiTai, you are certainly the master at creating so many different looks using the same scarf! I like all three of them, but if I had to choose, I would cast my vote for the white jeans outfit. ITA with Gina, number three draws attention to the turquoise in the scarf and clic clac.
    Orange hugs, dear.

    1. Agreed, number three is a classic scarf & enamel combination! Many thanks for voting my dear CS, and orange hugs right back.

      black/coral/white: 5/4/6

  17. Here's my vote: the black and turquoise ensemble, with the carre belt. Elegant summer chic!

    The coral jeans are stunning though....

    1. Thank you for casting your vote, my dear pussywillow! Glad to see no 1 catching up again ;)

      black/coral/white: 6/4/6

  18. Dear Maitai

    Please use the photo of the pink scarf - I'd be thrilled. I have linked you with a photo on my blog. Hope this is ok. It is freezing so scarves are lovely and I am really enjoying my scarf rings. x

    1. Dear FauxFuchsia, looking very much forward to include your fabulous pic in the next collage, thanks so much! Thank you also for mentioning me on your blog, that was so kind and generous of you. Love the way you wear your scarves, and love your blog! xx

  19. PS I love the orange jeans. Fabulous.

    1. I take that as another vote for #2!

    The words in your post seem to be running off the screen in Opera.

    I'm not sure if this is a format issue or something to do with web browser compatibility but I
    figured I'd post to let you know. The style and design look great though!

    Hope you get the problem solved soon. Cheers
