3 ways to wear a scarf
Scarves are one of the easiest, most versatile accessories for any outfit. Available in a wide range of styles, fabrics, designs, and at prices ranging from affordable to exorbitant, they can be tied and looped in a variety of styles to accentuate an outfit, and can even be converted into shirts and tops. Here are some easy ways in which a simple scarf can be worn in accordance with a specific outfit.
One of the simplest ways to wear a scarf with a low neck top during those moments when one must cover up is by folding it in half, and draping it around the shoulder so that the looped end of the scarf is on the left side. Then the right end of it should be looped into the left end and tightened so that it meets an inch below the neck. The look can be completed with a brooch, which will help keep it together, or you could use a contrasting colored scarf to add a dash of color to your look. Another means, by which this technique could be improved, is to use two dual tone scarves and follow the same procedure. This is a great way to keep warm in the winter season without bulking up, and is also great for those who work in freezing cold offices!
A popular method of tying a scarf, which is quick and easy, is called the “Double Wrap”. In order to channel this style, one needs to select a longer, thinner scarf. Begin by draping the scarf behind the neck, and wrapping each end across the neck and back again around the shoulders so that it is completely wrapped around the neck. Fluff the neckline and allow the ends of the scarf to fall loosely in front. This style suits modern short kurti tops which are not sold with a matching dupatta.
A rather complicated but fashionable method of wearing a scarf involves considerable effort but provides a look which is classy and elegant. Begin by folding the scarf in half and tying small knots at both ends of it. Then proceed by opening it so that a “ring” is formed; place it over the head so that the tied ends are behind the neck, and twist it at the back. The knotted end should be flipped over the head and other part of the scarf which is sticking to the neck should be pulled out to make it loose. One end of the knotted side should then be pulled between the space created in front of the neck, and folded over. The look is now complete and will complement tops such as spaghetti strap and camisoles.
A number of different styles are available in context with twisting, knotting and draping scarves. Their versatile nature and portability makes them an ideal accessory to carry in one’s bag. Scarves can simply be wrapped around the shoulders, or used to cover the head in religious places. This makes them a fashion must-have item, and it is recommended to stock up on plenty of styles and fabrics in order to wear them all year round.
