18 Cute Ways to Wear a Scarf: 5 Types of Scarves & How to Style Them
Cold days call for warm scarves! Wearing a scarf doesn’t have to look mundane - get inspired with my ultimate scarf-wearing tutorial!
I’m going to show you various fun and trendy ways to wear a scarf, plus I’ll show you different types of scarves that you can wear this winter.
How to wear an infinity scarf
Let’s start with this basic infinity scarf look. Putting it around your neck is a simple way to wear it.
If you don't want it to look too wide and puffy, pull the infinity scarf to the front and give the sides a little twist.
How to wear a silk scarf
This is a silk scarf, but any lightweight scarf would work, too. The first way is to fold the scarf in half, put it around your neck and feed the ends through the loop, as shown.
If you don’t like the ends being too long, simply take each end and wrap it around the main loop.
Next, turn the scarf around so one end drapes on your back and the other in front.
The next style is similar to the first, except that you leave it a little looser and wrap both ends to the adjacent side of the loop.
Wrap the ends twice, and this is how it ends up looking! So stylish and sleek.
Put the scarf around your neck and wrap each end around your neck, as shown.
Pull the ends, so the scarf fits snugly around your neck. Then, tie the ends into a knot. This way, the ends aren’t too long.
Keeping with the above style, simply undo the knot and let the ends sit loosely on either side. This is so easy and looks great with a jacket, too.
Take the ends, tie them into a cute little bow, and place it to the side. This is surely one way of creating a bolder look.
You can also transform your scarf into a makeshift shawl if you’re cold. This is so feminine and definitely adds a delicate touch to your outfit.
You can also casually throw one end over the opposite shoulder if you want a more wrapped-up vibe.
How to wear a cashmere scarf
The next scarf I'm styling is a long, rectangular cashmere scarf. Here, I basically folded it in half, put it around my neck, and put the ends through the loop.
This one’s also basic but really classic. Put the scarf around your neck and throw one end over your shoulder.
How to wear a long thin scarf
This scarf is really light but very sophisticated. For this style, I simply put it around my neck, tied the ends into a knot, and moved the knot to the side.
Like this, one end drapes onto the back and the other on the front.
The following style is really pretty and goes best with a collared shirt. Tie a knot in front and loosen the scarf from around your neck.
How to wear a square silk scarf
The first style is to fold the scarf in a triangular shape, then give it a swirl on both ends, so it spins into a rope-like structure.
Then, tie a loose knot in the front (just as you did before), and voilà!
Here’s the same style but with a different print. It’s so elegant and works well in an office setting.
Fold the scarf in half, so it’s a triangular shape, and wrap it around your neck. Tie the short ends at the back, and you have yourself a beautiful neckerchief look.
Keeping with the same method from the previous step, simply put the scarf to the side and divide the layers. What do you think?
You can also wear a silk scarf as a hair accessory! Simply twirl i, and place it in the middle of your head. Tie the short ends at the back, and you have a lovely silky and smooth headband.
Another great way to wear this scarf on your head is by tying the ends on top. You can also tuck the ends under the scarf to not peek out. This is really a cute and stylish way to use your scarf as an accessory.
