Scarves and How to Wear Them!
One of the easiest ways to perk up your outfits is by adding a great scarf! Not only do they add a sense of added style to what you’re wearing, it’s an inexpensive way to make sure your outfit is never boring. Even a black pair of leggings and a black t-shirt look incredibly chic when you add an attention grabbing scarf with a bold, graphic print or an attention grabbing color. Scarves are also a great way to incorporate seasonal trends into your wardrobe without spending a lot of money. Just adding an animal print, metallic, plaid, floral or tribal print scarf instantly updates your closet without breaking the bank. The bolder the print or pattern on your scarf, the simpler your outfit should be as not to compete. You can’t go wrong with a pair of skinny jeans, a plain colored t-shirt and a simple bag. Keep your coat or jacket simple as well - a trench coat or a solid colored coat will make your scarf pop! There is more than just one way to wear a scarf - with a bit of creativity you can wear your scarf in a different way almost every day of the week! You can also raid your mom or grandma’s closet for some scarves with a vintage feel and look! Check out the gallery of our favorite scarves and get shopping!

Ways to Tie Your Scarf!
- 1. Parisian Knot - You’ll need a longer scarf for this style. Fold your scarf in half lengthwise. Place it around your neck and simply loop the two ends through the hole on the end and voila! Easy chic!
- 2. Hippie Scarf - You need a large and full scarf to make this work. They key is to make it look as full as possible around your neck. Simply drape your scarf around your neck and loop the scarf around very loosely so it looks as casual as possible - make it look uneven and messy. The scarf should be full enough to make it the focal point of your outfit. Keep the rest of your outfit fitted and streamlined to balance out the volume of your scarf.
- 3. Triangle Chic - You’ll need a large square scarf for this bib style way to wear your scarf. Fold the square in half so you make a big triangle. With the pointed end of the triangle facing the floor, loop the ends around your neck. The scarf should look like a bit of a bib. This is a great way to show off a cool pattern!
- 4. Belt it - A cool way to wear a long scarf is to [kwlink24303]belt[/kwlink] it! Simply rest the scarf around your neck with both ends on either side at an even length. For this to work you need to have a scarf that is long enough so the end can be tucked into your belt. Simply put a cool belt around your waist and tuck the ends of the scarf inside. This makes a cool layered look and a new way to show off a groovy scarf!
- 5. Bow Scarf - This is a very ladylike way to wear a pretty long scarf. Simply tie it around your neck and make a bowtie, letting the ends hang loose. Pair this ultra-feminine look with some jeans to balance out the frill.
- 6. Headband scarf - Tie a long silk, lightweight scarf around your head like a headband and simply tie a knot. You can either tie a cute bow and place it on the side of your head or hide the knot underneath your hair.
- 7. The “Snood” or the Circular Scarf - The circular scarf has no ends and is just a circular loop that you wear around your neck almost like a necklace. This makes it almost too easy to throw a scarf on!
