Scarves are my favorite clothing accessory. Recently, they’ve become more and more popular among men who wear it not only to protect themselves from the cold, but to also compliment their outfit and look awesome while at it.
There are a few types of scarves. There are large chunky kinds, thin silky kinds, really long ones and everything in between. There are also many ways to wear one. Depending on what clothes you’re wearing as well as the kind of scarf you have, you might want to experiment wearing it differently.
Over the shoulder
This is the most common way to wear a scarf. Simply place it behind your neck and throw one end over the opposite shoulder.It’s easy and doesn’t take a lot of effort.
Works best with: All types of scarves
This is my choice of style when the weather starts getting colder. It keeps your neck nice and warm as well as looks somewhat like a tie. To make it, simply fold your scarf in half, then place it behind your neck after. Pull the “raw” side of the scarf through the loop and pull down to tighten it.
Works best with: Light to medium weight scarves
Pretty self explanatory. Just put the scarf around your neck and make a relatively tight knot in front of you. Take the outside piece and place it in front of the knot neatly so it covers it. Like the previous style, it’s great for keeping yourself warm.
Works best with: Medium weight to heavy
This is just like the knot, except the knot is hung low (around chest chest height) and loose. This is a very fashionable style that looks awesome with a lot of outfits.
Works best with: Long or medium, lightweight types
This is just wrapping the scarf around your neck, with both ends of the scarf displayed in front of your body. I prefer to keep this nice and loose.
Works best with: Light to medium weight types
Wrap around w/ Loop
Same thing as the wrap around but you take it one step further. All you have to do is just add a knot to the front. It’s a very busy style but with the right colors and patterns, this can look very stylish. This is another one that I like to keep loose. Works best in the summer with a silk scarf but also works during colder seasons with relatively few layers.
Works best with: Long, lightweight types
I hope you guys have a better understanding of how to wear scarves more fashionably. Mess around and try different combinations of scarf styles and weights and you’ll be surprised how much better they can compliment what you wear.
