Wearing a winter scarf doesn’t have to be limited to a simple loop around your neck, though. With a little creativity and stylish flare, you can transform your winter ensemble just by tying your scarf differently, keeping you warm & looking chic all season long!
We’re sharing a few of our favourite ways to tie a winter scarf, and trust us, it’s easier than it sounds!
The classic loop
The timeless and effortless, classic loop is always a winner!
Start by folding your scarf in half lengthwise to create a loop. Next, drape the scarf around your neck, with the loop on one side and the loose ends on the other. Pass the loose ends through the loop and adjust to your desired length. This simple yet stylish way of tying a scarf works well with both long and short scarves and complements any winter outfit.
Style Tip: If you are wearing a coat, tuck the loose ends in and close your coat. The loop creates a stylish detail
The French knot
For an elegant and sophisticated look, try the French knot.
Folding your scarf in half lengthwise and placing it around your neck, with the loop on one side and the loose ends on the other. Take one loose end and pass it through the loop, then twist the loop and pass the other end through it. Adjust the knot to your liking and let the loose ends drape down the front. The French knot adds a Parisian chic to your winter outfit.
The infinity twist
If you’re looking for a versatile style that exudes effortless charm, the infinity twist is the way to go.
Start by looping the scarf around your neck once, leaving one end longer than the other. Take the longer end and make a simple knot with the shorter end. Then, take the longer end and loop it around your neck again, creating a loose second loop. Adjust the loops to achieve the desired tightness and symmetry. The infinity twist is not only stylish but also provides extra warmth during those frosty winter days.
Style Tip: The infinity twist is a style that can be done with a thin scarf, so this works for the warmer seasons, too!
The belted shawl
For a unique and fashion-forward way to wear a winter scarf, try the belted shawl style.
Begin by draping the scarf over your shoulders like a shawl, with both ends hanging down the front. Take a wide belt and cinch it around your waist, securing the scarf in place. Adjust the positioning of the scarf to achieve the desired draping effect. This chic style adds a layer of sophistication to your winter outfits while keeping you cozy and warm.
The knotted braid
For a trendy and eye-catching look, opt for the knotted braid style.
Start by folding your scarf in half lengthwise and placing it around your neck, with the loop on one side and the loose ends on the other. Tie a loose knot using the loose ends of the scarf. Take one loose end and pass it through the loop, then take the other loose end and pass it through the loop in the opposite direction. Adjust the knots and loops to create a braided effect. The knotted braid style adds texture and visual interest to any winter ensemble.
Bonus: the wrap
Place one end of your scarf on the one side of your neck. With the other end, wrap it around your neck until you reach the other end. Then, tuck the end into your wrap to cover any loose ends that are sticking out, and voila!
Style Tip: Add some jewels. When you’ve got loose ends hanging out, a super cute touch is to slot the loose ends through a ring. Any jewel detail from the ring must be facing forward – this elevates your look even more. Try it!
