Three Scarves, Six Ways

Three Scarves, Six Ways

Though a statement necklace or pair of collar bone–grazing earrings can always be found in our accessories arsenal, this summer we're turning our attention to the scarf. For the last few seasons, fashion has been having a love affair with silk scarves of every iteration, from vintage finds to bandanas and skinny numbers.

Whether styled into a choker or fashioned as a purse, there are seemingly endless ways to tie this season's vibrant silk scarves, and we've broken down our six favorite below.

The Knotted Necklace and the Scout, featuring the Manipuri Tassel Print Scarf
Fold a medium–sized square scarf in half diagonally to create a long rectangle. Tie three knots—one in the center and one on each side of the first. Wrap the scarf around your neck and tie it in the back to create the knotted necklace. For the scout, fold the scarf in half diagonally to create a large triangle. Drape it around your neck, tying it loosely in a double-knot in the front.

The Scarf Tote and the Cowboy, featuring the Franco Ferrari Multi Printed Scarf
For these styles, you'll need a large rectangular scarf. For the tote, start by folding the scarf in half to make a square. Gather two opposite corners and tie them at the ends in a double–knot, then gather the remaining two corners and tie them in a double–knot at the ends, allowing the first knot to fall between. For the cowboy, simply fold the rectangle in half to create a square, then fold in half again to create a triangle. Wrap the scarf around your neck with the ends facing backwards, crossing them in the back and pulling them to the front.

The Choker and the Classic Knot, featuring the Manipuri Red Bandana Print Scarf
For both styles, start with a small square scarf, folding it in half to create a triangle. Continue to roll the scarf diagonally until you have a long piece of fabric about two inches wide. Wrap the scarf around your neck, knotting it in the back for the choker, or to the side for the classic knot.
