Silk scarves instantly add an element of glamour to any look. But that one question always remains: how do I tie it? Sabina Les, the founder of SL Designs, is a pro at wearing her gorgeous silk scarves many different ways. So I asked her to show ThinkThruFashion readers how to get the most out of their scarf purchases. With her easy steps, wearing one scarf five different ways is a cinch. And if you’re in New York for Fashion Night Out this Friday, buying these printed beauties just got 30% less expensive with the promotional code FNONY.
