Ways to wrap a scarf this season.
This holiday season may look a little different, but it’ll still be overflowing with reasons to gift your loved ones (and yourself) the everlasting gift of a classic style statement piece.
The silk scarf is always a favourite amongst the fashion pack, with near-endless ways of wearing and tons of styles to choose from. Still, it can get dizzying — but no need to fret. Here are a few unfussy, trend-forward ways of wearing a scarf, all of which are as polished as they are practical.
In perfect opposition of hair scarf style that typically dominated the lockdown hair trend, some wearers, including Dot my muse, are artfully throwing oversized scarves over one shoulder; others are going the traditional route, draping it symmetrically around their necks. There's also overhead scarf-tying, which serves two purposes — it helps keep the ears warm and secures one’s facemask firmly in place.
With the help of my muse Dot, we've taken some time to dream up some stylish ways for wrapping ourselves (or our friends) up.
Open & Draped Over Each Shoulder
For a polished and classic look, consider simply threading the scarf overhead and wearing it open in the front. This formula works best with deep-V blazers and trench coats alike — just tie up for an added twist.
Knotted Below The Chin
Rather than tying it across the forehead and behind the ears as a hair accessory, this styling method is making the rounds from Paris to Tokyo Fashion Week, and it's primed for keeping face masks in place. Be sure to wear with a pair of statent glasses, and anything goes from the shoulders-down.
For a well-proportioned look, style a cropped jacket with this tiny scarf, wrapping it around the neck and knotting it in place. This puts a warm, practical spin on French inspired "neckerchief" — and it's primed for wearing all winter long.
Over The Shoulder
This classic over-the-shoulder scarf look never trends out — and it's the perfect opportunity to choose an oversized style and layer it over a top, dress or coat, think Judi Dench.
Shoulder-Draped & Front-Knotted
To add decoration to a plain outfit, fashion lovers are wrapping silk scarves over their shoulders, tying them at the front for a complete look.
Last but not least, there's the classic, instinctual way of wearing a scarf that never goes out of style — the neck-wrapped look. Primed for wearing with versions of all different size scarves, this look is equal parts fashionable and comfortable, bound to keep you warm and looking stylish all winter long.
Wishing you a happy wrapping season!
