If you are on a tight budget like most people are, adding a scarf will make your wardrobe look plentiful even if you wear the same outfit over and over again. Adding a scarf can update your look, making people think you have a whole new wardrobe even if it is just the scarf you have added! There are many ways to wear your scarf, depending upon your outfit and the style of scarf.

Square Knot: Use a square scarf, and then fold it into a triangle. Flip one end over the other. Take the upper end of the scarf around and behind the other. Pull through and tighten into a knot. This can be worn front, back, or side.

Hacking Knot: Using an oblong scarf, fold it lengthwise in half. Drape it around your neck, and then pull the ends through the loop and tighten. This can be used on colder days, use with a sweater or coat. This style can give an elongating and slimming look.
