Ways To Wear Your Scarf

Scarves are one of the best ways to accessorize not only because they are found in such a wide variety of colors, patterns and prints but also because of the different ways in which they can be worn.

Looped around your neck – This is the simplest way to wear a scarf and it works the best when you’re trying to make a casual outfit like jeans and a Tee a little bit more fun. You can try different styles of looping it around your neck depending on what you are comfortable with.

As A Tie – Also known as a “stock tie” this is the perfect way to wear a scarf with something more formal, like a blazer or an A-line dress.

As A Waist belt – This is a cool alternative to the simple old wide black belt. The best part? It’ll be one of a kind as the chances of someone wearing the exact same scarf as you as a belt are slim to none.

Bow Tie/ Neck Wrap – Bow ties are all the rage now and what is more adorable than a scarf bow tie? This is how you make one.

These are my favorite ways to wear a tie. What are yours? Leave a comment and let us know!
