How to Wear a Square Scarf

Written by Megan.

I don’t know about you all, but I have an absurd amount of scarves. I tend to find the most unique retro scarves out vintage shopping, but how does one wear them? I found three super simple ways to add a nice touch to an outfit by throwing on a scarf.  

HEAD WRAP

With newish short hair comes new challenges to doing my hair each day. Using a square scarf as a head wrap has been my new favorite thing.

How to:

  1. Lay scarf on a flat surface;

  2. Fold scarf in half by joining two of the opposite points together;

  3. Hold the scarf at the points of the folded edge;

  4. Place flat end at the bottom of your scalp;

  5. Knot these two ends together at your forehead;

  6. Pull the remaining point over the top of your head and tuck into the knot at front of forehead;

  7. Tighten knot and you are good to go!

NECK TIE

Nothing says retro flight attendant quite like the neck tie. This is also a great way to add some dimension to your look.

How to:  

  1. Lay scarf on a flat surface;

  2. Fold scarf in half by joining two of the opposite points together;

  3. From the flat end roll scarf to the point opposite the folded flat end;

  4. Place around neck making sure that the rolled point is inward touching the neck;

  5. Tie in a loose knot.

BAG ACCESSORY

As a soon-to-be grad student, I have been thinking of different ways to prepare myself for going back to school. Guy got me this fantastic bag as a congratulatory gift and to add a little more flair, I added the scarf to the top handle. This can be done on purses as well!
