4. Tie a Classic Knot
A great knot at the side of your neck will not only help to keep you warm, but it will also add some visual interest to your outfit with a bright pop of color. It’s easy to do; just follow the directions at Nancy Dilts, and you’ll be accessorizing in no time.
5. Wrap Your Wrist
It may come as a surprise, but wearing your new scarf around your wrist is a trendy option. At Fazhion, you can see how this trend will add color to your outfit while still allowing you to keep the rest of your clothing options a little more neutral.
6. The French Twist
This look is a little difficult if your scarf is smaller, but if it has ample fabric, then you will be able to achieve this classic tie as shown on Nancy Dilts. You’ll love the layers that your scarf provides, the warmth it gives your neck, and how many colors you can see.
7. V-Neck in the Front
You won’t want to use a very scarf for this tie, as otherwise the ends of your scarf will hang down too long. The v-neck tie is very attractive with any top, but it works especially well if you have a light blazer on. See the look, and learn how to tie it at Audrey a la Mode.
8. Tie a Bow
A bow is a very cute way to tie your scarf and will allow you to enjoy your new scarf while still expressing your personality. See how to do it at Lotje’s Inspiration.
9. The Napoleon
For a fun and preppy look you can’t go wrong with, try this side tie. As shown on Scarves, it looks especially great when you use a square scarf that is really bright and patterned.
10. Way Back To Vintage
Silk scarves are great for a vintage feel, especially when they are used to tie around the head and when you have your hair perfectly coiffed and formed. See how cute you can look and how to top off your vintage look at Head-Scarves.
11. Make a Choker
By pushing the knot in your scarf to the back of your neck, you can create a streamlined and sleek look. You’ll love the way your new choker looks and how easily you can match the fabric that you choose to the rest of your outfit, as seen at Nancy Dilts.
12. Keep it Tight with a Ring
Using a ring is a great way to keep your scarf in place without having to tie it. This is great if you are worried about how tightly you will pull the knot or whether it will lay flat when you are finished. See how to use a ring at Scarves.
13. Skip the Knot
For a look that is a little softer and more feminine, you may want to skip the knots altogether. Allow an end of your scarf to hang loosely over the piece tied around your neck for a unique look as seen on Glamcheck.
14. Keep it Loose
Enjoy the motion of your scarf in the wind when you style it as shown on Scarves. There aren’t any knots in this style, making it easy to do when you are in a hurry, and it’s a great way to cover up the top of an old shirt.
15. Keep it Knotty
Adding some knots to your scarf before tying it around your neck keeps it interesting. See how this can update your style and appearance at Chartzie.
16. Accessorize Your Purse
If you want your purse to look its best, too, then take a cue from Sweatshirts & Dresses, and spice it up with your new scarf. This is a great way to enjoy your scarf, even if you don’t want to wear it on a particular day, as it will still be a part of your outfit.
