How Many Ways Can You Style A Scarf?
Scarves are probably one of the best year-round accessories. Yes, year-round! Over the past few years the scarf world has exploded with all kinds of scarves, and they’re no longer limited to winter-neck-warmers and tiny neck-ties. Now they come in a variety of sizes, styles, colors, and materials. We know the majority of you probably already have enough scarves to match every outfit, but realistically, how often do you wear them? Probably not nearly enough, huh?
Since the most popular scarf-wearing season of fall is officially here, we’ve put together a list of different ways to tie, twist, and knot the accessory. Of course, there are hundreds, maybe even thousands, of different ways to style a scarf and we couldn’t possibly write about all of them here. The list below is compiled of the Lioness Team’s favorites. Which one do you like best? Do you have a stand-by scarf style that isn’t listed here? Tell us about it in the comments!
For that scarf that you wish was an infinity scarf, but isn’t…well, now it can be! Make sure the scarf is unwrapped and untwisted, then grab a corner on each side of the scarf. Bring the far corners together and tie them into a double knot. Place the scarf around your neck, taking care that the knot is near the nape of your neck. Twist the scarf once to create a figure-eight, then wrap the bottom of the eight over your head. Be sure to hide the knot with the extra fabric and you’re done!
One of the undeniable struggles of being a woman is deciphering whether or not the neckline of the blouse you want to wear is appropriate for the occasion. If you’re unsure (or if you just want an added dimension to your ensemble) give this scarf style a try. Simply lay the scarf around your neck so that there is about the same amount of fabric on each side. Arrange the fabric so that the majority of if it is in the center of your body, then wrap a skinny belt around your waist so that it is secured in front of the scarf.
The Twist or The Rope
Begin by wrapping the scarf around each side of your neck so that there is a circle of fabric over your chest and two tails of the fabric, one on either side. Take one end and start warping it under and over and under and over the circled fabric as many times as you can. Once you run out of fabric, do the exact same thing on the other side, arrange the remaining few inches of the ends in the center.
The New York
Craft the chic scarf style by folding a long scarf completely in half, then in half again. On side should have the ends of the scarf AND a loop from the fold, the other end should have just a loop. Drape the scarf around your neck, then put the two ends of the scarf through the loop on the opposite side. Twist the big loop so that the fabric you pulled through is above the twist. Now pull the remaining looped fabric through the big loop.
