Scarf Tying Guide: Introduction

Scarves and shawls are the classic accessory and perhaps the most versatile.



A scarf or shawl can pull an outfit together, add a touch of femininity to a tailored suit or give panache to evening wear. It is also a great way to add a dash of sophistication to travelling clothes.

Scarves and shawls can look classic, elegant, casual, dashing or even sporty. And in addition to being worn around the neck or head, they can be looped, tied, twisted and knotted into halter tops, belts, wraps, hair accessories and evening bags.

Some of these styles will accent your outfit, some will flatter the shape of your face and some will act as the main attraction. It's all up to you. With a few basic scarf tying techniques, you'll find that none of them are difficult to tie.

Have fun, experiment, and enjoy wearing your scarf or shawl!
