8 Gorgeous Ways to Style Your Winter Scarf

Scarves are much more than purely functional pieces of clothing, as they can serve many purposes beyond keeping your neck warm. Scarves are accessories, able to complete an outfit. They come in every imaginable material, color, texture, and length, so you’ll never be starved for choice. To make the most of your favorite scarf, the trick is to make sure it’s styled well — and that you have plenty of options. Check out these highly effective ways to style your scarf.

1. Draped over one shoulder

This method of styling your scarf screams high fashion. It’s fierce and flashy, and while wearing it, you might even feel like a Kardashian (if only momentarily). The key to nailing this style is to ensure you’re properly equipped; silk scarves or wool scarves with fringed ends won’t work very well. The best options for this look are furry scarves (you can decide whether you’re more comfortable with faux or the real thing) or any scarves that are short and quilted. If you’re worried about it slipping off your body, keep your purse strap on that shoulder to weigh it down, or secure the scarf under a thin belt.

2. Halfway wrapped around

This scarf style gives you an effortless look. | Miquel Benitez/Getty Images

This casual look is not only incredibly mod, it’s also one of the easiest styles to achieve on the go. You can simply throw one end of the scarf over your shoulder without skipping a beat. Just make sure you don’t wrap it around your neck too tightly — this style looks best when nonchalantly draped.

3. As a poncho

Who say it has to go around your neck? |

On mild autumn days, you may be torn between deciding whether or not to layer with a sweater. Fortunately, a heavy wool scarf provides the perfect alternative. If it gets cold, use your thick scarf as a poncho by laying it flat and wrapping it around your shoulders. If it gets too warm, simply loop it back around your neck, and voila!

4. Once knotted at the neck

This works best with thin scarves. | Frazer Harrison/Getty Images

Silk scarves have little utility in terms of keeping you warm, but they have maximum value as chic accessories. To take your outfit to the next level, tie a silk scarf in a knot at the front of your neck. If you’re trying this out, it’s best to keep your outfit minimal, and confine all bright colors and busy patterns to the scarf. Or, try the opposite by keeping your scarf minimal with a busier outfit. Simply let the scarf cascade down the front of your blouse and it’ll do all the work for you.

5. Around your shoulders

Try this fun scarf style. | Alberto Alcocer/Getty Images

This preppy look is a cool, youthful take on wrapping a cashmere sweater around your neck. Instead of going for the overtly Nantucket look of a pink polo sweater, wrap a scarf around your shoulders instead. It’ll keep you cozy and still looks elegant, but without sending off obnoxious “I come from old money” vibes.

6. Belted

By belting a chunkier scarf, you can achieve an added layer of warmth beneath your coat. However, belting your scarf this way can be fun during spring as well. Wear a solid color dress, then fasten a bright floral scarf beneath a thin, white belt. It’ll be the perfect weekend look no matter where you’re headed.

7. Double-knotted

This look is both warm and chic. | Vanni Bassetti/Getty Images

By double-knotting a fringed scarf, you can essentially reap the benefits of a statement necklace with some added warmth around your neck. This trick works best with a short scarf made of thick material. Silk most likely won’t stay put. Give it a try the next time you’re deciding how to elevate your winter wardrobe.

8. As a purse accessory

This is probably the simplest way to up your style game. | Andreas Rentz/Getty Images

This fashionable method of styling your scarf is one of the quickest ways to amplify your look. Silk scarves look upscale and are attention-grabbing, so if you want to make your handbag look more luxurious (or you actually want to draw attention to its designer label), tie a silk scarf around one strap. Your bag will definitely turn heads with this colorful addition!

Scarves might just be my favorite accessory. If I had to shop for just one thing for the rest of my life (why would someone do that do me?) it might be scarves. Scarves don’t judge you, they don’t miraculously shrink when you’re pregnant, and they have a tendency to stick around. But how to tie a scarf? That’s another story! We asked our friends for their favorite methods and came up with 19 (nineteen!) different scarf tying ideas you can try. Just read through the post or checkout the video at the end to learn how to do each one.

19 Ways to Tie a Scarf

All you need is a large square or rectangular scarf to make these 19 looks. I used a couple of my favorite scarves in various sizes, but you only need one scarf to make the majority of these knots. Obviously a shorter scarf is best for neck ties and basic drapes while a longer scarf is good for more complicated knots. And heavy winter scarves are ideal for a simple toss and tuck, in my experience, but feel free to try each knot with a bunch of different scarves to see how it looks.

1. The Braid

Fold the scarf in half and place it around your neck. Take the loose ends of the scarf and pull them through the loop, making sure not to pull it too tight. Now, twist the loop and pull the loose ends through again. Continue twisting the loop with one hand and pulling the ends through until you run out of scarf.

2. The Cowl

Place your scarf around your neck so that one end is much shorter than the other. Wrap the long end around your neck twice, then tuck in the loose ends. If using a scarf with fringe, adjust it so that a bit of fringe is hanging down in front.

3. Classic Loop

It’s a classic because it’s so easy and looks so good! Fold the scarf in half. Put it behind your neck and bring both ends to the front. Pull the loose ends through the loop.

4. Knotted Necklace

Take a lightweight scarf (silk is great for this one!) and place it around the back of your neck. Tie a knot on side followed by the other. Pick up the loose ends and tie them together. Turn the scarf around so the ends are at that back and the knots are at the front.

5. The Shawl

The easiest way to wear a scarf! Just wrap it around your shoulders.

6. French Knot

I discovered this French twist last winter and still love it! Just fold the scarf in half put it around your shoulders. Take one loose end piece and pull it over and under the scarf loop. Take the second end piece and go under and over the same loop.

7. False Knot

Wrap the scarf behind your neck. Take one end and wrap it around your hand. Pull it through to make a loose knot. Take the other scarf end and pull it through the side knot, going under the knot loop and then over.

8. Simple Neck Knot

Take a small scarf and wrap it around your neck twice, so that the ends come together at one shoulder. Tie the ends together once and toss one end over your back while the other stays towards the front.

9. Double Bandana

Fold a long scarf if half lengthwise. Grab the diagonal ends and knot them together. Put it over your neck, then twist it and loop again.

10. Hidden Knot

Loop a long scarf once around your neck. Make a half knot with the long ends, up near your neck. Pull the fabric of the neck loop down over the half knot.

11. Slouchy Turtleneck

Place the scarf evenly around you neck. Loop one end of the scarf around your neck, then repeat with the other end (the ends should be hanging down slightly at your chest). Tuck the loose ends up inside the scarf.

12. Twisted Turtleneck

This one is exactly like the slouchy turtleneck (see #15), except this time your twist the scarf before wrapping it around your neck. You can wrap it tightly to look like a turtleneck or leave it loose for a more relaxed look.

13. The Tie Loop

I love wearing this knot underneath a blazer or jacket because it resembles a men’s tie, but with a feminine touch. Wrap the scarf around your neck so the ends are even in the front. Cross the left side over the right, then bring it behind and through the hole around your neck. Take the end on the right, pull it toward the left and push it upward through the loop you just created. Adjust the knot until it sits like a loose men’s tie.

14. Two-sided Twist

Put two of your favorite scarves back to back. Loop once around your neck and turn the fabric so that you see both sides.

15. Single Side Bow

Wrap the scarf around your neck and cross one side over the other. Using your right hand, gather a bit of scarf into a loop. Wrap the left around the loop and down through the hole, almost like tying your shoelaces. Tighten the knot and turn the scarf so the bow sits at your shoulder.

16. Knotted Shawl

A slightly more advanced version of the wrap. Put the scarf around your shoulders like a shawl and make a half knot in the back with the ends. Pull the ends tight and up high on your back. Pull the scarf fabric down to cover the ends.

17. Rolled Loop

Wrap a scarf once around your neck. Take each scarf end up and over the neck loop.

18. Double Loop

Loop the scarf twice around your neck. Take one end over and down through the neck loops and tie ends together.

19. Twisted Necklace

Bring the scarf around your next. Tie once at the front and bring the ends up and over your shoulders. Tie a knot where they meet at the back.

Does this post make you want to go shopping for a new scarf? Here are some of our favorites for the season:


“Scarves are a woman’s accessory”

At least – that’s what people will try and claim.


100 years ago when open cockpits were standard…

pilots wore a silk scarf around their neck to keep warm and prevent chafing.

For thousands of years, militaries have used them to differentiate soldiers…

from what battalions & regiments you belonged…

to what your specific duties were in combat.

Today – wool, cashmere, and even synthetic scarves are used for their ability to insulate the neck while providing freedom of movement.

My point is – the scarf is a fantastic & manly cold weather accessory.

It’s a classic menswear piece with a strong masculine history behind it.

In today’s article & video, we are going to look at 10 manly ways to tie a scarf.

Scarf Lengths:

  • Short: 50-60 inches
  • Standard: 70
  • Long: 82

Scarf Widths:

  • 6-7 inches for men
  • 10 inches on women’s scarves

10 ‘How To Tie A Scarf?’ Tutorials

1. Drape

The Drape leans more towards style rather than function. You don’t tie the scarf at all – but it’s a great way to add a dash of color to your drab overcoat and draw attention to your face.

A scarf drape is best for when the weather is cool, but not cold. As the name implies, just drape the scarf over your neck, equal lengths on each side, and don’t tie it – you’re good to go.

The scarf drape works best with a short to regular length scarf.

2. Once Around

With the Once Around, you still don’t really tie the scarf, but it provides more warmth around the neck than the scarf drape, and so can be worn in colder weather. Start by draping the scarf around your neck, making one end longer than the other.

Take the long end of the scarf and bring it around your neck and you’re done – no need to tie a knot. The ends of the scarf can either be equal length or uneven – it’s really up to the wearer’s preference.

3. Over Hand

This scarf knot is very simple to tie, looks clean and functional, and provides good protection to the neck in cool weather.

Drape the scarf around your neck, making one end longer than the other. Take the long end of the scarf, cross it over the short end, then bring it under and through the opening near your neck to tie.

After you tie the knot, pull on both ends of the scarf to tighten it until you are satisfied with the look. I think this scarf knot looks best when one end is slightly longer than the other.

4. Reverse Scarf Drape

This is a great way to wear a scarf in colder weather. Again, you don’t really tie this scarf knot, but it provides a lot of protection to the neck.

Drape the scarf over your neck, making sure both ends are of equal length.

Take one end of the scarf and bring it across your neck and over the opposite shoulder, then do the same with the other side. No need to tie it – adjust the scarf around your neck if necessary and you’re done.

5. Parisian Scarf Knot

A very classy looking way to tie a scarf, this scarf knot provides good warmth to the neck and is a good choice in colder weather.

Fold your scarf in half widthwise, then fold in half again lengthwise.

Drape the scarf over your neck, and then bring the loose ends through the hole formed by the folded end to tie the knot. Tighten the scarf around your neck and you’re ready to go.

6. Fake Knot

This is a more complicated scarf knot to tie, but it’s a great colder weather option that will look sharp with either a casual jacket or a formal overcoat.

Drape the scarf around your neck, making one end longer than the other. Take the long end of the scarf and bring it behind and around itself to form a loop, then take the end down and through the loop.

Grab the other end of the scarf and bring it down and through the loop as well to tie the knot. Work the knot up to your neck by gently pulling on each end of the scarf while sliding the knot up.

7. Reverse Drape Tuck

Not too commonly seen, this scarf knot works best if you tie it with a longer scarf. Drape the scarf around your neck, making one end longer than the other.

Take the long end of the scarf and loop it once around your neck. Now take the same end and tuck it through the loop you just formed. Grab the other side of the scarf and tuck it through the loop as well to tie the knot. Adjust the scarf if necessary.

8. Reverse Drape Cross

Very similar to the Reverse Drape Tuck, this scarf knot works great when you tie it with a longer scarf.

Drape the scarf around your neck and make one end longer than the other.

Take the long end of the scarf and bring it up and around your neck. Now cross the long end of the scarf over the other end, then bring it up and through the opening you just formed to tie the knot.

Pull on the ends of the scarf to tighten if needed, and you’re done.

9. Four In Hand

Another great way to tie a long scarf, this scarf knot protects the neck very well and is the perfect option when the weather is freezing cold.

Because of the many folds, this scarf knot is also one of the most intricate looking ways to tie a scarf. Like the Parisian Knot, fold the scarf in half length and width wise, and then drape it over your neck.

Take one of the loose ends of the scarf and pull it through the loop formed by the folded end. Twist the loop, then pull the other end of the scarf through the loop to tie the knot.

Continue to adjust the knot until the scarf is sitting neatly around your neck.

10. Twice Around

This scarf knot is the best choice for freezing weather next to the Four in Hand, but it is much simpler to tie. Again, it will work best if you are using a longer scarf.

Drape the scarf over your neck, making one end much longer than the other. Take the long end of the scarf and wrap it around your neck, then repeat again, bringing it around your neck a second time. This is another knot where you don’t really tie the scarf.

Adjust the scarf if needed to completely cover your neck, and you are all set for whatever the winter weather has in store for you.

That’s it gentlemen, 10 masculine ways to tie a scarf that will keep your neck warm when the weather turns cold.

Just remember that scarves should be used for function first, and you will be ready to rock this classic piece of menswear.

4 Ways to Tie a Winter Scarf

As an upcycled clothing company, we know a thing or two about styling scarves. Below are our four favorite ways of tying a winter scarf:

Classic Drape

Seriously, simple works for a reason. Draping a scarf on your shoulders makes it a perfect layering piece under or over jackets and vests.

Parisian Knot

If you’re reading ways to tie a winter scarf, you likely want a fancier option. For fancy, we turn to the French. In the Parisian knot, line up the two ends of your scarf. Place scarf on base of your neck with one end down on each shoulder. Pull end of one side through the other. Voila!

Are you wondering how to wear a winter scarf with style? You don’t just have to drape it around your neck. Scarves are an accessory to play around with just like earring and necklace combinations. They can upgrade your look just like going from sneakers to heels with jeans can. Experiment with different styles for your winter scarf; there are endless variations when it comes to this versatile accessory.

Several Ways to Wear a Winter Scarf

Long Winter Scarves

You could be feeling overwhelmed and wondering how to wear a winter scarf that seems too long.

  • Easy Folded Loop: One of the easiest ways to wear it is to fold it in half first. Then, drape it around your neck.Take the two loose ends and push them through the loop of the folded end of the scarf. Tighten as necessary. You drastically cut down on the apparent length of the scarf, and this is also one of the warmest ways to wear the scarf.
  • Loose Wrap: Another way to wear an average-to-long scarf is to drape it around the front of your neck so that the ends dangle behind you, then criss-cross them in the back and pull them back around to the front. Make sure the scarf is centered.
  • Layered Knot: A longer winter scarf can also look chic in a layered knot. Wrap the scarf around your neck, cross in the back, and then pull the ends to the front and knot. Loosen the wrapped portion of the scarf as needed to be comfoortable, and smooth the ends of the scarf so they are hanging down in front, with one end slightly covering the other. The resulting look is a dual layer around your neck that is both warm and stylish.

Dress It Up

You can alo make your scarf look more interesting by tying it in front, flattening out the knot and the ends, and scrunching the top of the scarf around the neck as if it were a turtleneck. Stylist Amy Salinger shows you how in one of her YouTube’s How to Tie a Winter Scarf videos. For those who prefer a dressier way to wear a cold-weather scarf, this is it.

Loose, Cute and Casual

A cute casual way to wear your scarf that is anything but boring shows up in that same video. Put the scarf over your neck, keeping the left side slightly longer. Pull the right side through as if you were tying a knot, but don’t pull the scarf completely through; leave it in a half knot instead. This creates a cute loop that is similar to a bow. Puff out the loop slightly and straighten the ends of the scarf. This look works best with non-woven scarves; the loop will be too large and dense with a thicker woven scarf.

Pashminas as Winter Scarves

Don’t forget about pashminas used as winter scarves. It’s not just a boring shawl. You can wrap one end around your neck and throw one end over your shoulder. If you feel like adding even more color to your attire, wear two at once for a layered look and a lot of warmth. You can also find embellished pashminas to wear with your evening wear.

Sleek and Slimming

Colder weather requires bulkier clothing, but you can use your scarf to create a slimming look by tying it in a loose false knot look just above the waist. Start with the scarf at equal lengths on either side of the neck, then tie a loose knot on only one side of the scarf about halfway down. Pull the other side of the scarf into the side of the knot, tighten slightly, and then center just above the waist. This look creates a narrower focal point at the knot, and a sleek vertical line, both of which work to give a sleek and slimming illusion. For a pictorial version of this scarf style, step-by-step False Knot. You can also slide the knot up or down depending on where you want it to fall to change the look. On a warmer day, you may want the knot further down; colder days may inspire you to push the knot up closer to your neck for extra warmth.

Additional Scarf Pairings

  • For a casual look, you can pair a matching beanie with your scarf. Do you want something a bit more sophisticated? Try a matching beret instead. If you know how to knit or crochet, you can make your own from matching yarn lots. If not, you can find matching sets almost anywhere you can find scarves.
  • When you wear a coat with your scarf, you have the option to leave the ends free or tuck them in. Tuck them in so that just the turtleneck illusion peeks out of the top or show off the whole length of a beautiful scarf by leaving them free. Allowing the ends to stay inside the coat may give you a bit more warmth due to the closer fit.
  • As for attire, you can wear a scarf with almost anything. Choose a nice knit scarf in non-scratchy wool to wear with your casual clothes. This is the time to play up patterns and colors. For dressier clothes or work clothes, play up the texture of a scarf more than patterns or colors.

A Versatile Staple

Next time you’re wondering how to wear a winter scarf, remember that scarves are incredibly versatile and can be tied or tossed over your shoulders in everything from laid back to business-inspired looks. Keep the colors and patterns to the casual looks and opt for textured, solid-color scarves for the dressier looks to be safe. Fringe can work well for either type of look. No matter how you decide to wear one, a winter scarf can be the focal point of your ensemble and can take an otherwise dull look to an entirely different level.
