How to Wear a Scarf to Complete Your Outfit: Tips, Tricks, and Styles
Scarves are one of the most versatile accessories out there and can be used to add that extra touch of style to complete any outfit. They can be used as a statement piece, to experiment with bright colors or to add warmth when needed. Scarves come in many different shapes, sizes, and materials. Read on to find out how to use your scarf to complete your look.
First, make sure the scarf matches the textures and tones of your ensemble. You want the scarf to be complementary, not competing with the rest of your outfit. Similarly, decide whether you want the scarf to be the focal point or to blend in. A bright, colorful scarf can draw attention, while a neutral scarf in similar colors to your outfit can allow for a more subtle style.
When tying the scarf, you can choose between a traditional knot, a loop, or a more fashion-forward styled loop. For a traditional knot, fold the scarf in half and drape it around your neck with the middle point of the scarf and the knot in the front. For a loop, wrap twice and leave the loop in the back. For a great way to try out different styles, create a loop and then knot that in the center.
Another unique way to get creative with your scarf is to experiment with different kinds of tying. You can add a bit of flair to an otherwise plain scarf by using an unusual knot. Some of the most popular ones to try include the sailor knot, the infinity knot, and the shrug knot. You can also use a twin loop, which gives the scarf additional volume and can be easily adjusted.
Now it’s time to experiment with scarves of different materials. Thin, sheer scarves can be used to add a delicate touch to an outfit. For a more substantial look, use wool or cashmere. Other materials like cotton or linen can be used for a funkier yet still elegant look. A mix of material replicates the look of a long poncho or oversized top.
Lastly, figure out how to wear a scarf with a certain type of clothing. When wearing a scarf to dress up an evening outfit, try a pashmina wrap or a shawl. With a casual outfit, you can opt for a wide necked scarf. For a preppy look, a Skinny scarf can be used with a tunic or blouse. Finally, to dress up your work outfit, reach for a patterned scarf.
