TGIF–Thank God It’s Fall! Pumpkin spice is in the air and the slight chill brings out all of our most adorable scarves. A trusty scarf is a fall essential because it can add extra flare to any outfit and helps keep you warm too. Styling your scarf may seem daunting at first, but once you get the hang of it, you’ll be rocking them any chance you get. Try out some of these simple, fun, and cute styles.
Possibly the simplest way to wear a scarf is to simply drape it over your shoulders and around your neck. This shows the design of the scarf most effectively, but might not protect your neck as well once the temperature starts dropping.
The loop method adds more protection to the neck and upper chest in colder weather. To achieve this look, drape roughly 1/3 of the scarf over one shoulder, wrap the remainder of the scarf around your neck once, and then drape the rest of the scarf over the other shoulder. You can adjust the fabric to appear larger and to display more of the design.
Infinity scarves are easy to loop around and achieve effortless warmth and style–but sometimes our warmest or most beautiful scarves are more traditional and have two ends. Luckily, there’s an easy hack. Tie the ends of your scarf together to create a large loop and then style as you would an infinity scarf. If you don’t want the knot to be seen, be sure to tuck it under one of the folds.
For the most warmth, the twist through method is the best choice. To achieve the look, line the two ends of the scarf together to create a sort of U shape. Bend the U around your neck from behind and pull the ends through the curve of the U in the front. Adjust to your desired tightness and fullness of fabric.
