In the winter months, many men find that wearing a scarf adds a level of warmth to an outfit that cannot be found merely by wearing a jacket. A few simple options for tying scarves will help men complete any winter look with ease. Remember to match the scarf to the jacket or shirt, whichever is being shown more prominently in the outfit. Additionally, if a hat is worn, it should match the scarf as well.
1 Grab the scarf with both hands and fold it lengthwise.
2 Place the scarf around your neck and insert the ends through the loop created by the fold of the scarf.
3 Let the ends hang down in front of you, and adjust the tightness of the knot and the thickness of the scarf by doubling the scarf lengthwise, if so desired.
Loose Once-Around Knot
1 Drape the scarf around your neck, allowing one end to be longer than the other.
2 Tie a very loose knot just below the neck, making it look as if you just threw the scarf on while running out the door.
3 Adjust the scarf to vary the tightness and to make sure the ends are still uneven.
1 Lay the scarf around your neck, placing one end much lower than the other.
2 Take the long end of the scarf and lightly wrap it around your neck once and then repeat it.
3 Make sure the ends are even once the scarf is wrapped around your neck twice. It may take a few times to get the ends even, but once you have practised it a few times, you should be able to do it on the first try from then on.
Tips and warnings
Pick a scarf based on colour and feel. You will not wear the scarf if you find it uncomfortable, so feel the scarf prior to purchasing to make sure it does not irritate your skin.
Bright colours attract the eye; however, if you want people to notice you, and not your scarf, stick to neutral colours that complement your wardrobe.
