Scarves are a fun and unique addition to a stylish wardrobe.
Over the decades, there has been variation in how to tie a scarf to look fashion-forward but not out-dated. There is no one correct way to tie a scarf, rather changing your method according to your outfit type and individual personality is ideal. Select one of these top 10 different ways to tie a scarf as suggested by Scarves.net.
10. Fake knot
Try tying your fashion scarf in a fake knot by holding the scarf in front of you and tying a loose knot in one end. Then, wrap the scarf around your neck twice and pull the loose end through the knot. Tighten by pulling the knot up towards your neck until comfortable.
A four-in-hand tie starts by folding the scarf in half and wrapping it around the back of your neck. Hold the loop end of the scarf in one hand and the loose ends in the other. Taking one of the ends, pull it through the loop and then twist the loop. Then, pull the other end through the loop and adjust such that the scarf is not bunched up.
Try a neck-tie knot by wrapping a scarf around the back of your neck. Fold one loose end over the other end twice to form a loose knot or hole. Take the same end that you folded over and pull it up through the knot created. Pull the ends tight to create a neck-tie knot.
7. Half bow
A half-bow is a pretty way to add a feminine touch to your style using a soft scarf. With a scarf around your neck, make one end slightly longer than the other. Then, wrap the longer end over the shorter one to create a loose knot, or hole. Pull the longer end up through the loose hole created. This creates a half-bow which can be worn on your chest or pulled to the side of your neck.
One of the simplest ways to tie a scarf, the bow-tie can be add a professional, feminine or structured look to you style. Simply place scarf around your neck with the ends hanging in front. Tie a bow the same way you would tie a shoe and let it hang loose or draw it tighter towards your neck.
5. Simple wrap
A simple, loose wrap is an ideal way to throw on a scarf and go. Simply place a long scarf around the neck with the ends hanging down your back. Cross the ends and bring in front of your body.
4. Basic tie
Try tying your scarf into a basic tie shape by placing the scarf around your neck such that ends hang loose in front. Tie the ends once to form a knot and raise or lower it according to preferred height and placement.
3. Layer it
Layering your scarf can create a more dramatic statement and is also ideal for a chilly day or evening. Place the scarf around the front of your neck. Take the ends hanging in the back and wrap around to the front. Cross both ends over each other and tie a knot. Have one end hanging longer in the front and throw the other over your shoulder.
2. Wrap the neck
Tie a scarf around your neck for an elegant and warm look. Simply wrap the scarf around your neck until it forms a layered covering. Tuck the ends in underneath for a complete look.
1. Head wrap
Scarves are not only worn around the neck, but rather commonly used as a stylish head-wrap. Fold a scarf in half twice to create a thinner headband effect. Place on the top of your head with ends hanging evenly on both sides. Tie the scarf at the crown of your neck underneath hair once or twice.
