The Saz Mifsud Diaries: Outfit 2

Following last week's post, I think it's time to spill the beans on Saz Mifsud's latest collection 'Illium'. I'm happy to announce that, as of this week, Saz is letting her one-of-a-kind pieces go, bit by bit, day by day, on her website http://sazmifsud.com/.

In the meantime scroll through the images below for some more scarf-transforming tips!

The Boob-Tube

I don't think anything could be easier; simply position scarf over torso, wrap one end over the other on the back and bring together at the top of your chest in a little knot/bow. Wear with or without shirt, depending on how much skin you're willing to bare.

The One-shoulder Bandeau

Begin at 'The Boob-Tube', omitting the front bow part. Instead just bring one end to the front and across the top of your chest to the opposite shoulder. Bring the other end to your shoulder scross your back this time, and once again tie the two ends together in a simple knot. 

The Longline Waistcoat

This is one of my personal favourites! Just drape the scarf across your back bringing it forward under your armpits and tying a knot at arms length in front of you. All you've got to do now is put your head through that knot, et voila. 

The Head-wrap

This is my go-to quick fix for a bad hair day. Start by placing scarf at the nape of your neck and twisting one end over the other at the top of your head. Then tuck away the loose ends in the sides of the headband you've just created!

...and that's not all yet! The last post will be up soon, but until then don't forget to visit http://sazmifsud.com/. Also, here's a chance to get up close and personal with Saz Mifsud's creations. The scarves are being shown at the Europa Donna fashion show next Sunday. Email info@sazmifsud.com for more!

with you in knots of silk,

The Saz Mifsud Diaries: Outfit 1

The best part of being a stylist is getting to work with beautifully designed pieces and giving them your own twist. So, needless to say, I was more than thrilled when Saz Mifsud asked me to highlight different ways of wearing her magical scarves! We spent an afternoon unravelling her beautiful silk designs and playing around with different ways of wearing them. The following posts will feature but a few options; really, the possibilities are endless! For the first of the series I wore a simple black crop top (ASOS) along with high-waisted skinnies (ASOS), the perfect minimalist backdrop for Saz's wonderful creations.

The Halter

So maybe you've spotted this look on the blog before. Here's the post, should you need a reminder! It's a pretty simple method, knot at the nape of the neck, second knot at the small of your back and you're sorted!

The Cape

The larger sized scarves will come in super handy once the air starts to cool down! Simply throw over your shoulders for a light shrug or kinch at the waist. You've got a wonderful silk cape now! 

The Apron

Add a little interest to your everyday jeans by adding an apron/mini over. By simply twisting the scarf over the thighs and tying it all together on the back, you've got yourself a little apron! Suggestion:vWear over a simple pencil skirt to give it a whole new look!

The Pussy Bow

Just tie your scarf into a bow at the base of your neck. Instant upgrade to any plain old tee!

The Neck Scarf

Favoured by Audrey Hepburn, Bridget Bardot and the likes, the neck wrap/scarf is a fashion staple. Simply wrap scarf round your neck and finish off with a rough knot on the side. 

I'll be back with more soon, but until then you should really visit Saz Mifsud's website for more beautiful silk wonders.

Love,
