Scarf weather is upon us! Well, partially at least. 

The incoming cold chill has encouraged many to drag out their Winter clothing and dust off their blanket cupboards. As the cool season starts to creep into our closets, layering will be your best friend.

Easily removable layers are the perfect go-to when transitioning between the chilly outdoors and heated interiors. And we decree the scarf officially back for the year!

Perfect for more blustery days, this style is perfect for longer scarves. To achieve this secure, two-tailed look, start with the tail end of your scarf hanging on one shoulder, with the remainder wrap once around your neck and bring the leftover tail piece across your other shoulder. Finally, secure the two tail ends of the scarf by tucking them into the central neck covering.

To achieve this asymmetrical look, start with your scarf folded in half (tail to tail). Hold both tails together with one hand and place your other hand in between the opposing two scarf pieces. Pull both ends to either side of your neck and thread the two tail ends into the open scarf loop. Pull through to secure. 

For further guidance on this style, refer to look three in the video above.

They’re the latest trend to hit the TikTok-sphere. Scarf rings are perfect to use with thinner, more fine materials. Generally associated with luxury silk scarves, the rings secure your accessory in place without the need for tying – plus they look cute! Thread both ends of your scarf into the ring and pull through to achieve your desired length.
