Scarves are made of decorative fabric that is used to keep the neck warm or to make a fashion statement. Rectangular scarves are a popular fashion accessory than can be worn to dress up any ensemble. They have versatility that allows the user to adjust it in any number of ways. In addition to the styling methods, the fabric from which the scarf was made can enhance the outfit transforming an appearance from casual to glamorous.
Wear the scarf as a belt by folding it in half, then halving it once more. Tie it securely around your waist, positioning the loose ends or the bow on your hip. The best fabric for this is a lightweight and sheer material that is flexible. This style is practical for children and adults and can be paired with a jean skirt or pants.
Accentuate your collarbone by making a necklace out of the rectangular scarf. Using a sheer scarf, fold it in half and wrap it around your neck with a fairly loose knot down the center. Depending on the length of the scarf, you can let the loose ends hang there or tie it into a bow.
Drape the scarf around your neck with the ends facing front. Secure the fabric in place with a belt. If you don't have a belt available, take the front two corners of the scarf and tie a secure knot in the front by the chest or pull the corners towards the back and tie a knot that is centered along your spine. This look is ideal for spring or summer months as well as special occasions.
Wrap the scarf around the head to protect it from the elements and to elevate an otherwise casual look. Starting with the forehead, wrap the scarf from front to back and tie a knot along the nape of your neck to hide it from view.
