Check out these different methods to make the most out of the scarves you own!

  1. The first one is the simple loop. Start out by folding the scarf in half. Put it around your neck then take the hanging side and put it through the loop. Tighten it as much as you need after! 
  2. Next is the celeb knot. This is fit for thinner scarves, like cashmere ones, where we can easily design it although it won’t provide a whole ton of warmth. For this style, simply drape the scarf around your neck and tie the ends together on one side. This way it hangs and has a stylish look to it.
  3. This next one, is one which most people tend to wear. The cowl neck. For this style, simply drape the scarf around your neck, then take one side and drape it around your neck in another circle. The end result should be two loose ends hanging and a circle around the center.
  4. Finally, the pretzel. In this style, focus on folding the scarf in half and place it around your neck, with the loop to one side. Pull one end through the loop. Take the other end and place it on top of the loop—then pull it through the opposite way.
