How to: Tie a Scarf 3 Ways

The temperatures are finally starting to drop, pumpkins are taking over empty lots, and the GoJane writers have been spending all their free time jumping in leaves. What does all of this mean? It’s scarf weather! Whether you prefer chunky knit scarves or lightweight printed scarves, we’re  showing you a few stylish ways to tie our favorite cold weather accessory. Get ready to get knotty!

Here are the three final looks.

Look 1:

Fold your scarf in half and drape it around your neck.

Slide one hand through the folded loop, and grab one of the loose ends.

Pull the end through the folded loop. The other end should still be hanging off your shoulder.

Grab the folded loop and twist it 90 degrees.

Slide your other hand through the loop again, and grab the end that is still hanging loose off your shoulder.

Pull the end through the twisted loop and adjust the knot so everything is even.

Rock the knot with your favorite top!

Look 2:

Drape a scarf around your neck so that each end is hanging loose.

Grab your favorite skinny belt, and buckle it around the scarf at your waist.

Tuck in the end of the belt so that it doesn’t hang.

Look 3:

Drape a scarf around your neck unfolded, and leave one end hanging long. There should be about 16 inches hanging on the shorter end.

Wrap the longer end around your neck twice. Both ends should be about the same length now.

Tie the ends that are hanging together in a regular knot. Adjust so ends are still hanging evenly.

What’s your favorite way to tie a scarf?

How to: Wear White After Labor Day

Over 100 years ago, it was decided by some wealthy fashionistas that white should not be worn after Labor Day. The trend, which was vaguely practical, then trickled down to fashion magazines. (We’ll spare you the historical details, but you can read more here if you’re interested.) To this day, many people let out a little groan when Labor Day rolls around, and begrudgingly put away their white summer clothes. At GoJane, we’re all about breaking traditional fashion rules, and wearing whatever prints or colors we think work for each season. And we just so happen to think white works year round. After all, Coco Chanel rocked white whenever she wanted.

Just to get you in the ‘wear white all year’ mindset, we’ve put together a few affordable outfits that feature white without screaming ‘summer vacation!’

four pocket distressed denim shorts, studded leather sweater, single buckle boots

asymmetrical peplum mini skirt, caged back tank, houndstooth cap toe platforms, layered pearl necklace set, quilted metal hinge bracelet, leather reptile wallet

high-waist skinny jeans, floral printed chambray shirt, flyaway cardigan, leather braid belt, rhinestone trim watch, leather buckle strap satchel

Inspiration Gallery for Fall’s Fave Shade: Burgundy

If you’ve been paying attention to all the major glossies, beauty blogs, and street style stars, you’ve probably noticed a shift in color. Specifically, we’re seeing a lot of burgundy. This rich hue is perfect for fall, and is also known as bordeaux, wine, berry, and plum. So, take a look at our large gallery featuring this completely gorg color in all its forms, and make sure to let us know how you’re wearing burgundy this season.

Inspiration Gallery: Skulls and Crosses

We’ve already told you about one of our fave trends (spikes and studs) for the upcoming season, but we think you’re ready for another one: skulls and crosses. And, just so you know, we’re not talking the gigantic skulls or crosses splashed across your person like that one kid you used to hang out with who freaked your mom out. Instead, the skulls and crosses we’re getting excited about include cut-out tees, dainty rings, and seriously bad ass clutches. To show you just how versatile this trend can be, we put together an inspiration gallery of images, some street style, some Instagram, and some editorial (and even one dude), that have made us whip out the plastic and load up our reusable shopping bags with all sorts of goodies.

How to: Wear Spikes and Studs

Is it just us, or has the summer flown by? Maybe it’s ’cause we were super busy; between assembling our July 2012 lookbook, checking out the hottest swim looks from Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week, and showing you how to dress for the beach, time just slipped through our perfectly manicured fingers. Granted, there’s still a few blissful weeks before the official beginning of fall, but we decided to take this week to introduce some of our favorite new trends for the season. First on our list? Spikes and studs.  We’re pretty sure you know all about our adoration for all things spiked and studded (you have been reading our Behind the Scenes + Sneak Peek posts, right?), but today’s post is special. Why? Because we’re gonna show you how to wear spikes and studs with a gigantic picture gallery full of our fave street style bloggers.
