How to Wear a Scarf

There is no right or wrong way to wear a scarf.

But there are a million of them!

You will find plenty of ideas on the internet if you go hunting, but most of us settle on a couple of favourites and tend to stick with them.
Here are a few of my favourite ways to wear or tie a scarf.

LONG SCARVES

BARCELONA

Drape the scarf around your neck looping it once. Tie a knot close to the loop. Position the knot under the loop and fluff the scarf to cover the knot.

SQUARE SCARVES

HINT: If you fold your larger square scarves by folding the diagonal corners into the middle over & over, you will get a long scarf that you can wear all the long scarf ways above.

COWBOY CHIC

Fold the scarf into a triangle. Thread one corner through a ring, an elasticised bracelet or even a hair scrunchie. Tie at the back of your neck.

How to Wear My Long Scoop Design Scarves as a Sarong or Beach Coverup

1.  Just wrap it around your hips, tie a knot and let the ends hang down.

2.  Fold it in half, wrap around your hips and tie a knot.  This gives extra thickness to the light, transparent fabrics.

3.  Wrap it around your hips, tie a knot and then fold the ends back and tie loosely on the other hip.  This needs a fabric that shows the print well on both sides.  It also gives extra thickness to the light, transparent fabrics.
