TGIF! The weekend is finally here, and it’s going to be the chilliest one yet, so pull out those scarves, and start practicing some of these fashionable ways to tie them around your neck in order to add some color and style to complete your fall and winter looks.
Here are the fab five I use to help enhance any of my day-to-day looks-
1. The classic “Drape”:
When you’re looking to draw some attention to your attire, but want to stay low-key and casual, just drape one right around your neck-it’s that simple! Scarves that look best when draping are ones with patterns and/or texture. Wear them with neutral-based clothing to truly make it pop, while keeping it classy and chic, all “tied up” in one.
2. The “Infinity/D.I.Y. Infinity”:
Probably the most popular way to wear a scarf…and it’s probably so popular, because it can pull together a look, while simultaneously being completely effortless. There are a few ways to work with this style: create one long loop to hang from your neck and drape along your chest, you can wrap around twice (or more, depending on the length) to add thickness or a cozier look, and if you don’t own an infinity scarf, you can easily make your own by tying the ends of a scarf together-it’s just that simple!
3. The “NYC”:
What I love most about this look is that it looks more difficult than it actually is…
- fold the scarf in half. Then drape the scarf around your neck
- take one end of the scarf and pull it through the loop
- twist the loop
- lastly, pull the other end through the loop
4.The “Woven Scarf Knot”:
This is the most difficult tie to create, but the time put in is well worth the wait! This knot looks great with longer blanket scarves (my favorite, which I use to achieve that extra “chunky” look) or a thinner scarf (especially ones with fringe at the ends)
- take the scarf and loop it around your neck once (the ends must be even)
- take the middle section of the scarf that’s hanging down the loop and twist it once
- take the left side of the scarf that is hanging down and put the fringe/end down through the left side of the loop
- continue pulling the left side of the scarf through the left side of the loop until you have completely threaded the left side of the scarf down through the loop
- take the right side of the scarf that is hanging down and pull it up from behind the center loop on the inner right side of the loop
- continue pulling right side of scarf up through the right side of the loop until you have completely threaded the right side of the scarf up through the right side of the loop
- Phew! You did it! Now there are two options to wear this style: either pull down on the ends to tighten it, or to give it that extra volume and bulk, pull at the scarf to loosen it up
3. My favorite look of the moment-The “Waterfall”:
This is perfect for wide/blanket scarves, and looks great over a basic fitted shirt, crew-neck sweater, or blazer-
- wrap the scarf around your neck two times
- take the top corner of the end on the right
- pull it across your front and tuck it in on the left side of your neck (this gives the scarf that “waterfall” appearance that is completely comfy, cozy, and absolutely stunning!)
There you have it-five ways to easily add some style to any outfit of the day! My advice is to be cautious of which style you choose depending on how busy your outfit is, such as the amount of bulky layers, whether or not you have collars, turtlenecks, or an abundance of jewelry (especially around the neck).
