Scarf Tying & Styling
Fresh Tips for a Classic Winter Accessory

Who knew there were so many ways to style a scarf? How you tie your scarf makes all the difference in getting the look you want AND making sure it stays put! 

Look 1: “The Cozy Classic”

Best tied with: Thick scarves, short or long. Can also be done with a blanket scarf. 

Technique: Wrap the scarf around your neck once, pulling one end much longer than the other. Reach your hand between the loop of your scarf and the short end to pull the long end to match the short end in front. Loosen to desired look.

Styling notes: Tuck the ends into closed coat for a polished look with bulky and/or formal coats. Leave both ends out and fluffed as shown for a casual look.

Look 2: “The Collegiate” 

Best tied with: Long, thick scarves with fringe or other details on the ends to show off. 

Technique: Wrap the scarf around your neck once, pulling one end much longer than the other. Reach your hand between the loop of your scarf and the short end to pull the long end behind you. Leave the short end loose on front. 

Styling Notes: Add on top of your coat, leaving the front end out to highlight the details of your scarf. Looks especially great used with striped scarves.

Look 3: “The Pretzel” 

Best tied with: Long, narrow scarves with no fringe at ends.

Technique: Wrap the scarf around your neck once, pulling both ends to front evenly. Wrap each end around the loop of your scarf once or twice, until you’ve reached your desired length. 

Styling Notes: Put on before your coat to create a tight turtleneck fit. Great for adding warmth and style with minimal bulk.

Bonus Style Tip: Cold winter days can put us in a bit of a style rut. Get creative with your winter look by layering jackets or coats that may be too light to wear on their own, like this leather jacket and quilted coat combo. And don’t  forget to accessorize–coordinating gloves and hats and even a statement pair of earrings or bold lipstick easily breaks up the monotony of the basic winter wardrobe.
