3 Quick, Elegant & Easy Ways to Tie an Hermes Plisse Scarf

In this tutorial, I’m going to show you three ways to style a Hermes Plisse scarf. A Plisse scarf has soft pleats in it, making it more textured than a regular scarf.

I think that scarves make excellent accessories, and I enjoy trying out lots of different ways to tie them. Follow along as I take you through each of these three styles step by step. So grab your Plisse scarf, and let’s begin.

If you are new to scarf tying, a Plisse scarf is great for beginners. All 3 of the following neck scarf styles are based on elementary knots, but a few modifications make it look like you are a scarf expert.

The best way to wear it, in my opinion, is with a simple t-shirt or long-sleeve top. My Plisse scarf size is 27” x 27”( 70 x 70cm) and it is 100% polyester. You can find a similar one on Etsy.
