If you follow me on Instagram, then you know that recently I've had the opportunity to collaborate with the online boutique C'est Mode Chic, and have been obsessed with the scarf I received from them. This being said, and scarves being one of my favorite accessories, I figured why not do a post on different ways you can wear them because you have to mix it up right?!
1. Around your neck
Of course this being the most classic way, I figured I would start off with it! Obviously this is one of the most traditional ways to tie/wear a scarf because it's so classic and chic. It's also simple to do: Just fold the scarf in half, place it around your neck, and loop the tails of the scarf through the gap in the fold.
2. As a belt with dress pants
A great way to add some fun and flirty flare to a work outfit is by belting it with a fun patterned scarf. Again, it's also super easy to do: You just need to fold the scarf long ways into quarters an then roll it to the desired size and loop it through your belt loops. To keep it together you can either tuck the ends into the belt or tie it in the back or on the side.
3. On your purse
In more recent trends, I've noticed that many big designers are actually wrapping scarves around the handles of their purses and I have to say after trying it out for myself, it's definitely a trend I'll be rocking. This one is a little trickier just because its time consuming: You first thread the scarf through one loop on your purse and proceed to wrap the handle and thread the other end through the loop on the opposite side and then tie the ends!
4. As a way to keep your ears warm
I took a cue from one of my favorite style icons, Audrey Hepburn, on this one folks, and used the scarf to wrap up my hair and keep it in place on a blustery day! To achieve this look first fold the scarf into a large triangle, place it on your head as you would a bandana, then wrap the tails of the scarf around your neck and tie them in the back.
5. As a shawl
This has to be one of my favorite looks because it is so effortlessly stylish. It's also a bonus because you do not see scarves worn this way too often! This one is another easy one, All you need to do is tie the scarf on both ends and simply put your arms through the ties as you would a jacket.
6. To belt a dress with it
Another one of my favorite ways to wear a scarf (Save the best two for last am I right?) is to belt a dress with it! You can also see a similar look here. To get this look, you just fold the scarf into quarters and roll it to the desired size and then just tie it around your waist.
