a ribbon scarf measuring 2 x 33". I received a lovely one for my birthday. I live in a climate that gets cold in the winter so I definitely know what to do with a pashmina or a more regular-sized scarf. I have seen people tie ribbon scarves on larger leather bags or wear them in their hair. I have large purses and I do have long, pony-tail worthy hair. However, I'm probably more of a "scarf around the neck" kind of gal. Does anyone have any suggestions how to wear a scarf with these dimensions? Help appreciated!

Here in So Cal, it really rarely gets cold enough to wear scarves for warmth, so I have several summer scarfs. I think that is what you're describing. Some wear it with tie-style, loosely knotted at chest level, some wear it like a regular scarf ( I find it too hot in the summer), and occasionally I wrap it a couple times around like a loose necklace. See Jessca Alba's pic below.

Hi Jaysonsmom, thanks for answering! It's silk, but kind of like that. To be specific, it's this one, attached (Yes, I like Tiffany). Does seeing it change your recommendation for how to wear it or do you think what you suggested will still work?

I'd use it in my hair, or

tie it loosely so the knot hits somewhere on the sternum, or

center it at the front of my neck, then wrap it once around the neck (again, loosely) and allow the ends to hang at either side of my neck.

Back in the day scarves like that were wardrobe standard for any woman who wore suits, and I had several fancy ways to tie them. That was, however, back in the day. :wink2:

ETA actually your scarf is skinnier and more formally finished than the tie substitutes we used to use back then! Hair and purse are probably your best options...

I have several Hermes twillys (ribbon scarves) and I tie them to my bags. I've also worn them as bracelets.
