Scarf Tying Guide: Neck Scarves

Here are some time-tested ideas for wearing your scarf stylishly around your neck.



The first styles are very easy to tie. Later ones are a little more tricky, but using the Basic Scarf Tying Techniques, none of them are hard to tie.


1. The Loop

Stylish and very easy to wear, and it couldn't be simpler to do!

Fold your scarf on the bias, then fold it in two, end to end. Drape it around your neck and pull the two ends through the loop. Wear it lose or tight, with the ends at the front or hanging stylishly to the side, over your shoulder.

2. The Short Knot

A very neat style, good with a business suit when you want to look 'polished'.

Fold your scarf into an oblong, then tie a simple knot in one end, close to the border. Drape it around your neck and slip the other end through the knot. Arrange the two ends - either neatly behind one another, or pulled out to the sides like a fan.

3. The Wraparound

Elegant and good for keeping your neck warm!

Fold your scarf on the bias, then loop it twice around your neck, leaving the two ends hanging down to the front. Tie the ends in a square knot.

4. The Twist

A very elegant style that isn't hard to tie.

Fold your scarf on the bias, making it fairly thin. Drape it around your neck and cross the two ends, then twist them around each other. Tie the ends in a small square knot at the back of your neck.
