A picture is worth a thousand words

A visual guide on scarf tying options

By Kelly Hockenberry, Columnist, UnionvilleTimes.com

One of my most frequently asked questions regarding a winter wardrobe is…


Here are three easy ways that you may have never seen (or attempted) before.

I will try my best to explain the concept, but, have included pictures to help those of you who are visual learners, like myself…


Step 1

Have one end of the scarf shorter than the other.

Step 2

Make a loop with the longer end






Step 3

Squish the middle of the loop and pull in close to the neck

Step 4

Wrap the shorter end around the squished loop and form into a bow





Finished Product!











Step 1

Just like in the first set, make one end shorter than the other

Step 2

Take the longer end and wrap around the neck two to three times (depending on the length of the scarf)

Knot the two end pieces and tuck under the scarf to create a turtleneck effect.


Finished Product!











Step 1

Take the two ends of the scarf and tie a knot to form a loop

Step 2

Twist the loop to make a smaller circle to slip over your head





Finished Product!



A scarf is an instant wardrobe refresher.  As you can see from the photos, it elevates a plain black t-shirt into something much fancier in no time flat!
