How to Wear a Scarf

Scarves can be a simple, yet complicated accessory. I mean think about it… it’s just a rectangle of fabric! However, I hear guys all the time that got a scarf as a gift (and that they like) but aren’t sure how to tie it. Today, we’re going to look at how to wear a scarf.

Here are your best bets for draping a scarf around your neck:
  • First, it’s certainly not like a necktie. However, I have heard rumors of men wearing them like one. It’s not all that terrible but unless it’s clear you’re a style superstar, you’ll just might look like you are clueless… or start a new trend. 

  • Up next, a simple, loose knot. It looks handsomely nonchalant and is very easy to do.

  • The third look is another option you might like. To achieve this, thrown both ends of the scarf over your shoulders and bring the ends around on the opposite side.

  • This next one is my personal favorite. To get this look, fold the scarf in half, wrap it around your neck and take the ends of the scarf and pull them through the loop that is now at the other end of the scarf.

  • And lastly, the most classic. I think of old Hollywood when I see this. All you do is toss one end over your shoulder and voila! 


  1. Thanks for this post ... no really. Just the other day I was talking with my husband about this very topic. He noticed someone wearing a scarf and commenting how horrible it looked. I told him, "It's because he's not wearing it right." Now, I just need to find the mishap-scarf wear-er and give him your step-by-step process! ~j.

    p.s. loving your header image ... great look! Also wanted you to know I found your post on seededbuzz ... not a member yet ... but wanted you to know that's where I found you. Keep creating!

  2. Great post. I especially noticed the past year or so now that they are so many great scarves coming out and they are much more popular.

    It's good to take some time and stand before a mirror playing with all the different ways to find what suits you best. It takes a little practice so you can have it down without the mirror.
