3 Ways to Wear a Scarf That You May Not Have Thought Of
Do you love wearing scarves but aren’t quite sure how to wear them?
Girrrl, I feel you!
There are so many options and sometimes I feel like I have to be a magician just to get them tied.
Can you relate?
Let’s quickly talk about the benefits of wearing a scarf. Yes, wearing a scarf has benefits. Here are five quick benefits of wearing a scarf:
- They’re functional as an accessory and can be worn in a variety of ways.
- They’re convenient to wear and don’t require a lot of effort to put on (sometimes).
- They’re versatile because they come in all shapes, sizes, and colors to provide plenty of wearable options.
- They’re chic and will never go out of style.
- They’re an accessory that works no matter if you’re pregnant, gain or lose a bunch of weight or are feeling like a hot mess.
Pretty cool, right?
Since scarf tying can be tricky, and perhaps you’re not a professional scarf wearer. (Is that even a thing?) I want to share with you three easy and different ways that you can wear a scarf so that you can feel like bombshell beauty and still look like the fashionista you desire to be.
Wearing a scarf as a vest can bring a different look and feel to your outfit. It’s super simple to do and comfortable to wear. You’ll need to find a scarf that will be large enough to fit your upper body to make this look work. I recommend a larger oblong shaped scarf.
- Fold the scarf in half. One side will have the two open ends, and the other will be the crease.
- Keep the scarf folded and tie the two ends together at the top. Be sure to tie the ends together as close to the end as possible so that you create a smaller knot and have enough room for your arms to fit through the holes.
- Once you have the scarf tied, open the scarf. You’ll see two holes on each side of the knot you just tied.
- Flip it around to your backside and place one arm in each of the holes. Fix the front of the scarf once it is one and you have yourself a vest!
Easy peasy! This option provides you some versatility. It’ll give an old outfit a fresh new look, or if it’s a chilly day, it’ll add an extra layer of warmth for you.
Oh, for the love of braids!
Braiding your scar can be a statement accessory for your wardrobe. Once you know how to braid a scarf, and depending on the size of it, you could wear it in your hair, as a belt, or around your neck.
Pretty cool, right?
Let’s dive into how to braid a scarf.
- You’ll need an oblong shaped scarf. The size is up to you depending on how you’ll be wearing it.
- Measure the scarf around the area you’ll be wearing it to measure the size of the hole that you need for easy on and off access. Use both hands to mark where you should tie the scarf.
- Tie a basic knot at the location in which you marked off.
- From there you’ll start to braid using the two ends of the scarf + the ring that’ll go around your neck/waist/head.
- Once you have it braided, tie the ends off.
- Place it where it’ll be born and adjust.
This is a little more advanced, but once you get the hang of it, you’ll be braiding up a storm!
Wearing a scarf in your hair is super easy! Lots of different ways to wear one and it doesn’t matter if you have long or short hair. You can pretty much pull off any look you want with the help of our little friends, bobby pins!
But for ease, let’s talk about the front twist scarf to wear around your pretty little head. This version works well for short or long hair. Be sure to grab some bobby pins to ensure it stays put.
For the ladies with longer hair, you could wear this scarf with your hair down, up in a ponytail, a bun or braided to the side.
Alright, simple steps to wearing a front twist scarf in your hair.
- Drape your scarf around your neck.
- Bring the sides up to the front of your head and cross them to be a twist.
- Bring the end pieces of the scarf back to the nape of your neck and secure.
- Adjust so that it’s straight and secure with bobby pins.
Boho chic and extremely easy to do!
