How to Style a Scarf

Come September, I am in full fall mode. It doesn’t matter if the weather is still in the 90s, I’m thinking pumpkin spice lattes, yellow leaves and I’m thinking scarves. I, personally, am building a small collection and in case there is ever a scarf shortage in the world, you could most likely find what you need in my closet. Eventually, you get tired of just wrapping it around your neck, or tying it in a bow. You learn the million uses for a scarf and well, my fascination becomes more understandable. Here is my how to on how to style a scarf.

    Check out these great ways to style a simple scarf. 

  • A Belt 2 of 7

     A fun colorful scarf, wrapped through your pant loop holes is a great alternative to a belt. If you crave more structure or hold, wrap around an actual belt as décor and if you are like me, create an empire waist with the scarf in place of a belt.

    Whether as a halter, strapless top, or a backless shirt, a large pashmina or scarf for fall makes the perfect addition to your last minute weekend getaways or during resort season. I know I'm on vacation and in that mode, but to wear during the colder months, layer under a black blazer.

    Need a fun bag just for running errands? Tie each corner of your scarf in a knot, then criss cross the ends and tie for a small, sack-style bag. Sort of like the ones made when you were 4 and you threatened to run away because your mom made you eat all your veggies, yes, that is in style now. 

  • A Head Wrap 5 of 7

    I went through a phase in collage where I would wrap my head in big scraps of fabric (I was a design major). It was a tribute to my roots I would say, but in reality, it usually was a morning on which I had no desire to style my hair and this just looked so good, like this morning when my daughter asked why I was still parked in the garage taking selfies. 

  • A Headband 6 of 7

    Not having a bad hair day but still want to dress up your look? Fold the scarf a few times until it is thin enough and tie like you would a headband. Or for wild crazy curl days like mine, twist the scarf and wrap around your head.  

  • A Cocoon Sweater 7 of 7

    This is probably one of my favorite ways to wear a scarf. Tie two ends together to make a small arm hole, repeat and wear. Great for an evening out. Or tie two opposite ends behind your back and let the rest of the scarf hang loose for a more casual look.
