Over the years, my accessories seemed to have shrunk in size; I’ve swapped oversized hoop earrings (yes, you read that right - in my defence, everyone was wearing them) for small studs and statement necklaces for minimalist chokers. I guess it’s only fitting that my scarves start to shrink in size too.
I’ve always loved the look of a small neck scarf (also known as a neckerchief or a neck tie), but only recently started wearing them. I think of them more as jewellery than a scarf because they fill both needs for me. When I purchased this grey neck scarf for $9, I wasn’t sure the best way to tie it, but quickly figured it out. If you’re thinking about trying this trend, here are the two basic methods I use.
HOW TO TIE A NECK SCARF
A Thin Neck Tie like this One
Fold the scarf in half.
Wrap it around your neck once or twice (depending on your preference and the length of the scarf),
Tie a knot and twist it to the side.
Fan out the ends of the scarf.
A Bandana like this One
Fold the square bandanna into a triangle.
Continue folding it until it forms one long strand.
Wrap it around your neck once or twice.
Tie a knot and twist to the side
Fan out the ends of the bandana.
Keep in mind that these are just guidelines - there really are no rules. Play around with your scarf until you find a style you like; try tucking in the ends, adjusting the thickness, rolling instead of folding, wearing your scarf on your wrist, or even tying it on your bag.
