Knotted on the Strap

The easiest of the bunch, this draped style works equally well on a tote, smaller cross-body bag or clutch. Simply tie a loose knot and let the hems hang low.

Best for silky scarves, this one requires a bit of finesse. Make sure that your bow looks casual and effortless, as opposed to perfectly knotted. After all, cool girls never want to look like they're trying too hard.
