This is probably the easiest way you can wear a scarf. Pair an oblong scarf with a tank or a long sleeve shirt or sweater to create a cowl that hangs loosely around your neck and allows the ends to drape in the front.

Steps:

Simply loop the scarf around your neck loosely to form a cowl.

Leave ends hanging in front.

You can adjust the length of the ends by adjusting the size of the cowl.

 


The Shawl

This look is more traditional and requires an oblong wide scarf to mimic a shawl. Drape the scarf around your shoulders and tie the ends loosely in front. Leave the ends hanging freely for a more dramatic look.

Cross the ends as if to tie a bow in front and leave ends hanging.

You can also tie the ends in a knot if you prefer a more snug fit.

 


The Hip Wrap or Belt

This look requires an oblong scarf that is simply tied around your waist similar to the shawl and finished off either in a knot or a bow. You can also use other decorative accessories to keep the scarf secure such as a ribbon or a decorative pin or broche.

How to Wear a Scarf: The Hip Wrap

Steps:

Similar to the Shawl Wrap but placed on your waist or hips.

Use an oblong scarf, drape the scarf around your waist or hips depending on your desired look.

Tie the end in a loose knot or bow.

You can also tie the ends in a knot if you prefer a more snug fit.

 


The Ascot

The Ascot style is a great way to tie your scarf and works well with just about any type of scarf. With the ascot style, you can create a tailored cowl look and tighten the knot to your liking. Wear a tighter cowl around your neck when you prefer to keep warm, or loosen the cowl when you want to show off a necklace or wear your scarf with a collared blouse or shirt.

Steps:

Using an oblong scarf, drape the scarf loosely around your neck one time to create a cowl. Leave one end shorter than the other. Cross the longer end over the shorter end.

Bringing the longer end under both the short end and the loop, pull it through the cowl to the front.

Tighten or loosen to desired fit.

 


The Knot

Similar to the look of a man's tie, this method is anything but masculine. This style of tying a big loose knot with your scarf is a quick way to add style to any attire. This method works best with a long oblong scarf. You can also position the knot either higher up or lower on the scarf. Wear the knot lower when you want to show off a fashion necklace or layer your scarf over a collared blouse or shirt.
