A winter scarf can keep you warm and add style to any outfit. Winter scarves are made of many materials including wool, nylon, cotton and polyester. They can come in a multitude of designs and different looks. Tying your winter scarf tightly protects you from the elements and gives you a look that is put together, warm and stylish.
For bitterly cold days, tie your scarf in a wrap-around style. Begin with the scarf hanging against the back of your neck, with the two ends hanging down your front. Take one end and wrap it around your neck. Take the other end and wrap it around your neck as well, slightly higher than the first. Continue this until the scarf is wrapped around your neck, chin, mouth and up around your nose. Tuck the last end of your scarf into the back of the wrap around. Tuck the second end into the front. Button your coat over top of the winter scarf. This tying method will keep you as warm as possible.
Around Your Head
If you don't have a hat and would like to stay warm, start with the scarf on the top of your head. Bring one end down around your chin and bring the second end around that to the other side. Cross both ends of the scarf behind your head and then bring them around to swaddle your neck. Tie them tightly when they meet again. This should keep the top of your head warm, as well as your ears, your chin and the back of your neck. Without a hat, you will lose a lot of body heat in cold weather. Tying your scarf in this manner can help.
For days that are not too cold, a winter scarf can be loosely tied around your neck and can flow down your front. Begin with the scarf around the back of your neck and the ends hanging down your front. Tie the two ends together in a loose square knot, right at your breastbone. Throw one of the ends over your shoulder and tuck the second end into your coat. This can make a sporty and casual look.
