Some tips on how to wear and tie a scarf to get you started:

1. The Basic Loop

– Drape the scarf around your neck. Then take one end and loop it around your neck 1-2 times until you like the drapping results! It’s classic.

2. The Faux Infinity

– Tie the two opposite ends of the scarf to create a circle. Swing it around your head twice with the knot at the back!

3. The Shawl

– Spread out the fabric and drape it evenly across your shoulders. Cross your body with one end and throw the other one across your shoulder. Cosy and chic, especially in cooler weather.

4. The Faux Belt

– Lay out your scarf and fold the edge about 1-2 inches. Keep folding until your scarf is folded into a 1-2 inch rectangle. Loop your folded scarf through your belt loops and tie it in a small bow in the front. It is more colorful and fashionable than a plain leather belt and let’s you personalize the look.

5. The Headband

– Lay out your scarf and connect two of the corners to form a triangle. Start at the opposite end and fold in 1-2 inches. Keep folding until the entire scarf forms a 1-2 inch rectangle. Put the scarf on your hairline, above your forehead, and tie at the base of your neck beneath your hair. You can also tie it at the top to form a bow at the top of your head! Perfect for messy hair days or for a sleek look at the beach!
