4 Ways to Wear a Scarf

4 Ways to Wear a Scarf

When it comes to wearing a scarf, I am not particularly creative. In fact, I only know about three ways to wear a scarf: wrapped around my neck, knotted, or draped like a stole.

Contrast this to my mother, who has an entire Pinterest board devoted to tying scarves.

I asked her if she would help me do a blog post about how to tie a scarf (since I clearly need some tips in this department). She said, “Yes, of course, Naomi. Nothing would make me happier. Also, you’re my favorite daughter.”

Ok, she didn’t say that. But she did agree to help out. So here are four of Sandy’s ideas for wearing a scarf!


1. Start with an infinity scarf or a scarf tied in a circle.

2-3. Drape the scarf around your neck and cross one side over the other so that the scarf makes a figure 8.

4. Cross the sides again so there’s a noticeable twist in the scarf.

5-6. Flip the bottom loop over your head and adjust so the “knot” is in front.

1. Start with a rectangle scarf draped around your neck, but have one side significantly shorter than the other.

2, 3, & 4. Wrap the scarf around your neck twice, so that you only have a little piece of scarf left at your shoulder.

5. Bring the other end of the scarf up to meet the baby end, and tie them in a knot.

6. Adjust so the knot is hidden and the scarf falls evenly in front.

1-2. Start with a rectangle scarf, and wrap it around your neck so that the two ends hang down evenly.

3. Take both ends and tuck them under the loop of your scarf.

4. Pull the ends out to the side so that there’s a noticeable space in the front.

5-6. Tuck the ends under the loop again and adjust.

Once again, start with a rectangle scarf looped around your neck. Take the right end and tuck it under the main loop, leaving a noticeable opening on the right side. Take the left end and tuck it into the loop you just made on the right side. Tighten the sides and adjust.

Note: This one is definitely the hardest, and I had to practice a bunch of times before I could get it to look right.

    I can actually “hear” your mother saying those words…(and the part about your being her favorite daughter to both you and your sister individually followed by her signature laugh)
    I think the key to this (and many things in life) is patience and practice. 🙂
