ITZAS Magnetic Brooch fixing basics for Square Scarves

The two main starting points for styling square scarves are the BIAS FOLD and the DIAGONAL FOLD.

1) SOME WAYS WITH A BIAS FOLDED SCARF

There are already some good resources on the web showing how to do these basic folds so rather than reinventing the wheel here is a link to a short video by MaiTai elegantly demonstrating the Basic Bias Fold:  Once you have your basic bias fold there are various ways to style with an ITZAS magnetic brooch.
INFORMAL TIE FIX

For an informal tie fix drape the bias-folded scarf around your neck and adjust one side to be slightly longer. Wrap the longer length around the shorter length and fix with an ITZAS magnetic brooch.

OVER THE SHOULDER FIX

From a Bias Fold draped around your neck, put the longer length over one shoulder and fix in place with your ITZAS magnetic brooch.

2) SOME WAYS WITH A DIAGONALLY FOLDED SQUARE:

Start with the COWBOY DRAPE
MaiTai demonstrates the Cowboy Drape beautifully here:

FRENCH LOP
Essentially this is a Cowboy Drape with an ITZAS magnetic keeper on either side to fix the ends or ‘lops’ in place. Play around with the length of the lops to make the scarf sit higher or lower on your neckline.

GROUCHO This is a Cowboy Drape with the ends secured in front with a single ITZAS magnetic brooch. You can either fix both of the ends in front with the brooch visible,

have one end showing as below:

or fix the ends at the back of the scarf for an REVERSE GROUCHO.

The brooch can also be hidden out of sight behind the scarf as here –

SINGLE OVERHAND KNOT at the back of the neck:

Fold your square diagonally and drape the body of the scarf to the front. Use an ITZAS magnetic brooch to fix a simple overhand knot at the back of your neck. It makes a feature of the back of scarf without a bulky knot and the front of the scarf drapes beautifully..
