While there are many different ways to tie a scarf, we have listed our favorites.

Scarf Styles for Women

Sleek and Stylish: This is perfect for the cold days when you want to stay warm as well as look stylish. Bring the ends of the scarf together, fold it in half and drape the folded scarf around the back of the neck and let each end hang in the front. Now find the loop of the fold and pull the other end through it. This is ideal for those long, rectangular scarves.

Go Square: This pretzel style works only with square scarves. Simply fold the square in half to form a triangle and have the triangle upside down or pointing downwards. Wrap the ends around the back of the neck and let each end hang in front.

Warm Up: Need to warm up? If yes, wrap the scarf around the neck as many times as you can and tuck the ends underneath. The style looks great with jackets and blazers because the style will not cover collars.

Boho Chic: Go Bohemian by wrapping the scarf around the neck. Stretch the fabric in front of your neck and around the back. Allow each end to hang freely in the front. The style looks great with patterned scarves. Alternatively, channel your inner Bohemian with a turban style head wrap by wrapping your forehead with the scarf.

Classic Style: You can’t go wrong with silk and satin scarves. Wrap the scarf around the neck with one end left in the front and the other in the back. This is surely an elegant and timeless look.

Chic: Use a wide scarf to cover up. The style looks great with cashmeres and while it may look awry in the beginning, the end result is both chic and sophisticated.

Go Preppy: You don’t always have to be wearing a scarf. Make your bag wear it and it’ll look as preppy as it would on you. Give your bag an edge by simply tying a simple knot at the scarf in the center.

Office Girl: Add some style to any business outfit with a colorful scarf. Snuggly wrap a scarf from one side of the neck to the other and tie an over hand knot. Now tie a loose, but small, bow and adjust the bow so it points up and the ties hang down.

Scarf Styles for Men

City Guy: When in the city air, the classic knot is a no-nonsense choice that helps keep your scarf looking neat and stylish. Simply fold the scarf in half length and wrap it around your neck. Draw the loose ends through the loop fashioned by the fold. The style adds an instant clean look to any outfit, be it a sweater with chinos or a jacket.

Sophisticated Guy: This is a perfect balance between the put together and laid back look. Drape the scarf around the neck with one end shorter than the other. Wrap the longer end loosely around the neck once or twice (for a more bundled look) with both ends lying in the front. Having one side longer gives a more natural look but feel free to adjust the lengths as per your requirements. This style looks great on everything from tee and sweaters to a winter coat.

Connoisseur: This is the perfect style for the men who enjoy the finer things in life. Lay the scarf around the neck so both the ends are even in the front. Carry one end over and under the other similar to a single knot, drape the front end over the backside and adjust length as per your taste. While you can wear the style loose, it will also look great when tucked into a blazer or v-neck sweater.
Jetsetter: The classic scarf style will lend an effortless feel to your outfit. Drape the scarf around the neck with one end longer than the other. Next wrap the longer end across the front of your neck and let it hang over the opposite shoulder. This style is sure to make you look like a globetrotter in no time.

Weekender: This is a casual style knot that looks both contemporary and relaxed. Start close to the neck with one end in the front and wrap the long end around the next until it is short. Insert both ends into the wrapped scarf and fluff it out for volume.
