4 Ways to Wear a Scarf This Fall & Where to Find Them

How to Tie a Scarf

A scarf offers more than just protection against a chilly breeze. This cold-weather accessory has become a staple in modern fashion. It’s no surprise, then, that they come in myriad styles, prints, and patterns. But the variety in design is rivaled only by the countless creative ways there are to wear a scarf.

Here are four of our favorites.

The Instant Infinity

You can find infinity scarves at just about any boutique or accessory store. But that doesn’t mean you’ll find the same print as your favorite traditional scarf. No worries, because this method lets you give a standard scarf an instant infinity upgrade. All you have to do is tie the ends together, then loop the scarf twice around your neck. If you have longer hair and are worried about the knot showing, make sure to position the tied portion toward the back of your neck so your hair covers it.

The Criss-Cross

This is one of the most popular styles of scarf tying. It’s easy to do on the fly and looks great with both trendy and traditional outfits. Begin by folding the scarf in half and drape it around your neck. Then, take one loose end and thread it over and under one side of the loop. Do the same with the other loose section – thread under and over the same side of the loop. Tighten and adjust as needed.

The Necktie

This look gets its name from its resemblance to a man’s necktie. The stylish scarf-tying method works well for both genders. To start, wrap your scarf one time around your neck, then make a knot at the top of the scarf. Finish by pulling the excess material from your original wraparound to cover the knot, thus forming the “tie.” This style offers the added benefit of providing you with some front-of-body warmth, too.

The Insulator

For days when you need your neck wrap to do more function than fashion, try this method. Loop the scarf snugly around your neck twice. Then, tie the ends together and tuck the remaining fabric into the wrap. Your neck is guaranteed to stay cozy with this one.
