Equestrian theme
Vintage headsquares

This is a fabulous little equestrian number from a huge selection of vintage headsquares that I now have in stock.

My best friend wears hers like the Queen….tied under the chin!

There are fifty ways to leave your lover (so I hear), but how many ways are there to wear a headsquare?

1 folded diagonally and tied under the chin, like the Queen.

2 folded diagonally, crossed under the chin and tied at the back (Audrey Hepburn)

2 folded diagonally , tied around the back of head, over the scarf tails, gypsy style.

3 As above but tied under the scarf tails, hippy chic.

4 folded diagonally, point in the front, tails brought round to front and tied, point tucked in , washerwoman  style.

5 pleated, tied, with ends fanned, turban style.

6 rolled on the diagonal and worn as a Hendrix style headband.

7rolled on the diagonal and used to tie a pony tail

8 folded into an oblong and worn as a knotted stock under a hacking jacket

9diagonally folded and tied behind the neck with the diagonal creating a cowl neckline.

10 diagonally folded and worn around the neck with tails at the front, Boy Scout style

11 as above but tails worn near the collar bone, cowboy style

12 as an element of a hijab

13 as an element of a headwrap

14 tie it around your wrist

15 tie it around your waist

16  tie it around your hips

17 tie it around your leg, like a punk Morris dancer

18 wrap up some possessions,tie it to a long stick and take a hike
