Method 1 Classic Drape
1Hang the scarf around your neck. The simplest way to wear a scarf is to merely drape it around the back of your neck, leaving the front of your neck exposed.
- The ends of the scarf should hang down straight over your chest.
- Both ends should be even in length.
- The best type of scarf to use for this style is a short- to medium-length rectangular scarf. The ends can be square-cut or fringed, depending on your own personal style preference.
- Note that this style is more fashion-oriented than practical. It is not an especially warm way to wear your scarf, so it may be better to save this look for a more tolerable day instead of a frigid one.
2Wear it inside or outside your coat. Draping your scarf over the front of your overcoat makes it the focal point of your outfit, while wearing it inside creates a more subtle effect.
- To wear it on the inside, tuck the draped ends into the coat so that they cover the chest area exposed by the coat's neckline. Close your overcoat over the scarf and readjust the scarf as needed until it is even under your collar.
- To wear the scarf on the outside, pop the collar of your overcoat up and place the scarf at the base of the collar at the back of your neck. Let the scarf hang down naturally over your coat.
Method 2 Classic Flip
1Drape the scarf around your neck. Hang the scarf off the back of your neck so that one side 12 inches (30.5 cm) longer than the other.
- Note that this should look very similar to the traditional drape look. The only difference is that one end of the scarf should be longer than the other, but both ends should hang down straight over the front of your chest.
- As with the classic drape style, the classic flip is not an especially warm way to wear your scarf and is more aesthetic than practical. Save it for a temperate day instead of a markedly cold one.
- The best type of scarf to use for this look is a medium-length rectangular scarf with square-cut ends.
2Cross the long end over your neck and shoulder. Pass the long end over the front of your neck and over your shoulder, bringing it around to your back.
- The long end of the scarf should now hang down casually and loosely over your back.
- For this style, you should wear your scarf on the outside of your overcoat instead of the inside.
Method 3 Parisian Knot
1Fold the scarf in half. Fold the scarf in half lengthwise so that it effectively becomes half its original length.
- Since this scarf style requires you to halve the length of your scarf, the best type of scarf to wear this with is a long rectangular scarf. The ends can either be rounded or fringed.
- This style can be moderately warm to very warm depending on how tightly you tie it.
- This type of knot has also been called the European Knot, European Loop, Loop Pull, and Slipknot.
2Drape the folded scarf around your neck. Hang the folded scarf off the back of your neck, bringing the loose ends and looped end across your chest.
- The loose ends and looped end should hang straight down over your chest on opposite sides.
- This draping effect should mimic the classic drape style, except for the fact that the scarf is folded in half.
3Pull the loose ends through the loop. Stuff the loose ends through the loop and pull them through, tightening the loop into a knot around your neck.
- The knot should be positioned in front of your neck.
- Only the loose ends should hang down in front of your chest now.
4Readjust as desired. You can make the knot as loose or tight as you want.
- A somewhat loose knot is generally more comfortable. It also creates a more casual, laid back style than a tighter knot would.
- Straighten out any twists in the loose ends of the scarf so that the ends lie flat against your chest.
- Note that you can wear the loose ends of the scarf over your jacket or tucked inside your jacket. The former is more fashion-conscious, while the latter is warmer.
Method 4 Ascot Knot
1Wrap the scarf all the way around your neck. Without letting the ends of the scarf go, hang the scarf around the front of your neck so that the ends would hang down over your back if released. Cross the ends behind your neck and bring them back around to the front.
- The ends of the scarf should hang straight down in front of your chest when finished.
- One end should be longer than the other. The short end should hang around your chest while the long end should reach down to your waist.
- Use a long rectangular scarf for this style. A scarf with fringed ends looks best, but you can also go with one that has rounded edges.
- This tying method is very warm and highly suitable for cold weather.
2Tie the scarf ends. Cross the longer end over the shorter end before threading it through the resulting loop. Pull the long end back over the front of the loop to tighten it.
- Essentially, this move is the same sort of tie you would use when tying your shoelaces.
- When you cross the longer end over the shorter end, a loop will be created around your neck. This is the loop you will need to pull the longer end through.
- Pull the ends so that the knot is tightened flat against your neck.
3Hide the short end with the long end. Arrange the longer end so that it lays flat over the front of the shorter end.
- The longer end should already be positioned over the short end. If not, readjust the knot so that the longer end naturally lays in front.
4Adjust as needed. If the knot is too tight or too loose against your neck, readjust the ends of the scarf to fix the problem.
- Button or zipper your jacket over the ends of the scarf. Do not let the scarf hang outside of your overcoat.
- If wearing a long, fringed scarf, the fringe may peek out from underneath the jacket. This is acceptable, but it is an optional style choice that you can choose to keep or reject.
Method 5 Fake Knot
1Drape the scarf around your neck. Hang the scarf off the back of your neck so that the ends drape straight down across your chest.
- One end should hang slightly lower than the other. The short end should extend down to your mid to low chest, while the long end should drape down to your upper waist.
- Note that a medium-length scarf works well for this style.
- Scarves with patterns or thicker weaves work especially well since the knot is easier to see as a result.
- This style is moderately to very warm, depending on how tight the knot is tied.
2Make a loose knot on one side. Tie a knot 12 to 18 inches (30.5 to 45.75 cm) from the bottom of the long end of the scarf.
- Keep the knot loose so that it will be easy scarf to adjust and easy to stuff the other end through.
3Slip the other end into the knot. Pull the short end of the scarf into the top of the knot and out through the bottom of the knot.
- If the knot is too tight to slip the other end through, loosen it slightly without undoing it.
4Tighten the knot and adjust the ends. Readjust the ends of the scarf so that they are about equal in length.
- Pull on the knotted end slightly to tighten the knot around the other end.
- This style is often worn outside of your jacket or overcoat.
Method 6 One or Twice-Around Loop
1Drape the scarf around your neck. Hang the scarf off the back of your neck so that the ends drape straight down over your chest.
- The front of your neck should still be uncovered at this point. It should essentially look the same as the classic drape style.
- This style can range in warmth from slightly warm to very warm, all depending on how tight you make the loops.
- Choose a long scarf for this style. One that is 72 inches (1.8 m) works well. A longer scarf is especially good to have for a twice-round.
- For a traditional look, choose a scarf with fringes. A scarf with rounded edges will also work, though.
2Cross the long end over your shoulder. Pass the longer end over your neck, draping it over your opposite shoulder.
- The long end should now hang straight down over your back. The short end should remain in front.
3Bring the long end back around to the front for a once-around. Cross the long end over the back of your neck and over the shoulder it originally hung across.
- Both ends should now hang straight down across your chest.
- Tug on both ends of the scarf to even them out. Also tug on the ends to adjust the wrapped portion around your neck. A tighter loop will be warmer, but a looser loop can seem more easy-going and stylish.
- This completes the once-around style. Depending on how much length your scarf has or how cold the weather is, you may wish to continue further with a twice-around style.
4Pass the long end around your neck once more for a twice-around. Wrap the long end of the scarf around your neck once more, crossing it over the front and back of your neck as well as both shoulders.
- When finished, both ends should lie straight down across your chest.
- Tighten or loosen the loops around your neck to create the look and level of warmth you desire. Make sure that the scarf lies flat against your neck and chest instead of bunching up or twisting.
- Both the once-around and twice-around styles can be worn both inside and outside your overcoat.
