What are the best 9 ways to wear a scarf?
Knot it around the neck
As always, there are multiple ways to do this. As many styles as knots you can make. Do you have a long scarf in your wardrobe? Because those are easiest to knot. For example, you can go with a knot just above your chest and let the ends hang loose. You may begin with a single knot and then put the other end through the knot. Or you could knot the scarf to one side and keep one end at front. Then you throw the other end over your shoulder.
Use on your head
There are endless ways to tie a scarf around your head. You can cover your head fully if you wish. Or you might also opt for partial cover. Use your scarf as a band maybe. Alternatively consider using it as a head tie. You must ask an outfit planner what suits you best. Obviously the vintage style remains. And this is where you fold your scarf into a triangle and drape it over your head. The narrow ends are then held together with a standard knot or bow tied.
This is a manner of draping a scarf that is really classy. Surely you have seen many illustrations on magazines or on Chicisimo? Even if you don’t own one, no big deal. Just tie up the ends of a long scarf in a small end and voila! Your infinity scarf is made. Drape it in double loops that hang loose around your neck. Together with polo neck or turtle neck tops, this look is beautiful.
At the cost of sounding repetitive, there are multiple ways to achieve this look too. You are limited only by your imagination. Of course it is a good idea to seek further ideas from an outfit planner. You can also just go solo and do what you wish. Braiding the scarf into a necklace will look good. Alternatively fold your scarf into a triangle and begin braiding the ends loosely. This lends a full look around your neck. It is a great style for winters. Wear it with a dress or top from your wardrobe.
Another feminine version of wearing a scarf. It is one of the easiest to try on. And it works best with dainty and soft silk scarves. The more delicate brooch you choose from your wardrobe, the softer is the look. Fold your scarf into a triangle, bringing the ends together around your neck. Thereafter, pin on a brooch to hold them in place against the neck. You are done! As simple as that really.
Wondering how to style that skinny scarf that you own? Twisting it around its ends is what you need. Your outfit planner can do a great job here. All you need is to loop it once around your neck. Take the two long ends hanging over and keep twisting them around this loop. You will ultimately arrive at a classy twisted large loop look. And still have some material for long loose ends. Of course this will be possible if your scarf originally is really long and skinny. Try it out!
Among the popular of 9 ways to wear a scarf is to use it as a sarong. Your beach outing will be a hit in this way. Make sure to pick your favourite from the wardrobe. Obviously you cannot use a woollen one. But that is common sense.
A beautifully feminine way to tie your scarf is a bow tie. It adds a special touch to your wardrobe choice of the day. Does not matter if you have a long scarf or a smaller one. The only thing that will change of course is the size of the bow. This choice depends upon where you are headed with a bow scarf. Where you place the bow also adds a lovely touch. For example, a big plush bow to one side, nestling gently against your chin. Even picturing that in mind is so lovely, right? You may also go for a smallish bow right down the middle. Hold clumps on both sides and put a hair tie around.
This style is for larger sized scarves. Do you normally avoid those fearing they would bulk up your look? On the contrary, they do a lot to add to style. Why not go through some suggestions on Chicisimo too? Basically what you need to do is to fold this into a triangle. Now drape it on the front of your neck and take the narrow ends behind your neck. Knot the ends together. There you have a layered look to your large scarf. Bold checks would look great. You can be your own outfit planner here.
