After a few weeks in hiatus, the Fashion Friday post returns. With the weather turning cold, we turn our attention to one of the most basic, and yet, stylish pieces of winter wear: the scarf. Most of our winter garb is primarily black or dark. A colorful scarf can add style and personality to your winter clothing without breaking the bank. Most scarves are unisex, so look around your wife’s closet, you might even find something that you could pair up with an existing coat for free.
So how do you wear your scarf? Here are a few of the most popular styles:
Seen on: Everyone from prep schoolers to snowmen.
How to: Like tying your shoe—over, under, and pull.
Seen on: Guys in suits, Obama … and the English.
How to: Drape around neck, tuck into sides of jacket and cross ends under your jacket’s buttons.
Seen on: Regulars on the Sartorialist … and Italians.
How to: Bring ends of scarf together, wrap around neck, and pull ends through the loop.
Seen on: LA hipsters and those not in need of real warmth.
How to: Loop once (or twice) around neck, leaving the ends hanging at your sides.
Seen on: People trying to avoid hypothermia.
How to: Take every inch of that scarf and wrap it around any exposed skin.
