How to Wear Scarves 1
Post On:2016-10-03 16:10:02
 
The first step is to make sure that the scarf is somewhat matching the rest of your outfit, otherwise it will just look wrong.
 
If dressed in a pattern or printed clothes, a solid color scarf is all you need. On the other hand, when wearing solid colors do not be afraid to spice up your look with a fun, colorful plaid or bright printed scarf.
 
Colorful scarves inject some hue into your everyday life. But if you are too scared of color begin with a good quality neutral color cashmere scarf such as grey, brown, and cream. And long scarf is a good choice, because you want be able to wrap it around you in all kinds of styles.

Looped Style

         
 
Looped style scarf is an easy and elegant way to dress up with a scarf.
To create this looped effect, a long scarf must be used.
  1. Lay the scarf across the back of your neck and let it hang, but leave one side slightly longer than the other.
  2. Take the side that is longer and wrap it around your neck, moving it around your head in a counterclockwise motion. The scarf should end where you began turning it, now having a loop around the neck and the scarf ends hanging down across the chest on both sides.
  3. You can also stop the twist of the scarf end half way and leave one end hanging in front and one end down your back.

Draped Style

  1. Place the scarf around your neck so the two ends fall to the front and pull the right side so that it is a little longer.
  2. Cross the longer length over the shorter length and then wrap it behind the shorter length so again the short length is on your left and the long length on your right.

Loose knot

  1. Drape it loosely as though you haven’t the time to finish the job right, allowing one end to be longer than the other.
  2. Take the long end and bring it around your neck and let it fall over your chest. If the scarf is long enough, tie the two ends in a knot or warp the longer end around your neck again.

Shoulder Shrug Style

The shoulder shrug style is worn predominantly on women. This look has the ability to add that extra punch to a plain outfit.
To achieve this look you will need a scarf that is quite wide as well as long, so that it can expand to cover the shoulders.
 

Shawl Style

For the shawl, you will need a large scarf, almost comparable to a small blanket.

Classic Shawl: The easiest way to wear your shawl in style and stay warm. Place the middle of the scarf high on your neck and let it drape around to each shoulder. It should be touching your frame all the way from your neck to just below the elbow on both sides.
