How to tie a scarf?

There is not one but multiple ways to adorn a scarf. Below are some styles that will provide you with some style tips on how to tie a scarf around neck.

The Basic Loop: 

When you are not in the mood to do a lot, and yet look amazing – just grab your favourite scarf and put it around your neck. Take one end of the scarf and make a loop around your neck.

Make sure that there is equal fabric on both ends hanging from your neck. Wear a contrasting color t-shirt with this look. 

When in doubt, belt it:

On days when you don’t feel like giving in much effort, but want to look more put together – then this is for you! Just wear your favourite dress, put around a scarf loosely and tie a narrow belt around your waist. This outfit will look stunning and it needs no time at all! 

The Infinity Loop:

This might look a little tricky, but it is one of the easiest and comfiest ways to wear a scarf. For this style, put your scarf around your neck so that both the fabrics are equal in length on both sides. Take the corner from each side and tie them together, making a small knot.

Once the knot is tight, now your scarf is in an oval shape. Now hold the scarf from the near-middle portion and reverse it making a smaller loop. Put this loop around your neck. This is how you wear a scarf making an infinity loop. 

Pin it: 

This is one of the most elegant ways of wearing your scarf around your neck. For this style, pick a silk scarf with a lesser and lighter fabric.

Fold it smaller pleats and put it around a neck, reaching a comfortable length that is not too tight around your neck, pin the rest of the fabric using an embellished brooch. This style is also great for wearing a scarf in professional settings. 

Make a bow: 

Another elegant style to be worn in official settings. This is also a way of glamming up your fashion quotient in the office space. You can adorn this style over a blazer as well.

Take a scarf, put it around your neck, and make a loop in exactly the same way you would tie your shoe-laces. Leave the two smaller loops as it is – that makes it look like a bow or you can pull down one of the loops and leave it hanging, having only one loop in the knot. Do as you like it! 

The Cowgirl Style:

We love how this style looks so sophisticated and yet effortless. To replicate this, lay down your scarf on a flat surface. Pick one corner of the scarf, and put it on a diametrically opposite corner. Your scarf will now give you a triangular shape. Now, put this scarf around your neck and tie a small knot at the back. Cover the knot at the back with your hair, or put on a blazer, shirt, or jacket to complete the look.

Apart from wearing your scarves around your neck, you can experiment with a few more styles. These styles are truly fun to play with. Read ahead to find out what we are talking about. 

Wear it like a shrug:

This style efficiently shows the versatility of a scarf. To recreate the same, open your scarf, and put it loosely on your shoulder. Now, on both sides, leaving some portion loose and comfortable for your arms, just pin both the sides of the fabric together on each side, and voila, you are done!

Simple, smart, and sexy! 

Top It!:

If you are comfortable with some skin reveal, or if you are at a beach – this is one of the easiest and most fashionable looks to create. All you have to do is pick a scarf with a thick and heavy fabric. Make sure that the length and width of the scarf are big enough to be folded and tied.

Now, lay down the fabric on a flat surface, pick one corner of the scarf, and put it on the other corner. Now, your scarf will look like a triangle. Hold the corners and tie them on the upper body. Make sure the knot is tight. Secure the scarf with pins if needed. 

If you are not comfortable with skin reveal, and yet you’d love to recreate this look – we suggest you throw around a jacket, blazer, or shrug to cover your arms and bare back. This will only add another oomph factor to your entire outfit. 

Use it as a hairband:

Scarves can literally be styled in any fashion. That’s where the beauty of this garment lies! A scarf can be your life-saver on a bad hair day. If you are getting too late for that party or date, and don’t have time to style your hair, just let your tresses loose and tie around a scarf like a bandana.

Mask it:

Because of the coronavirus, masks have become a necessity. You should never leave your home without wearing a mask. Not only does it save you from contracting the virus, but it will also save your skin from pollution.

However, for this, you have to make sure that your scarf is of a thicker fabric. Just fold the scarf and wear it around so that it covers both your nose and mouth completely. Staying safe and staying fashionable – can it get any better?
