A neck wrap will not only do what its name implies (keep your neck warm), but it is also one of the simple and ironically, the most chic of ways to wear a scarf. This is the basic use for any square scarf, but a square scarf, as well as a large pashmina, can also be used to create a handbag (see below).
Fold your square scarf in a triangle.
Let the pointed edge hang on your chest
Tie the 2 long ends behind your neck.
Adjust the under part of the scarf to make it appear “voluminous” Tighten as needed to create different lengths
Classic Hollywood Knot
Put the scarf around your neck and let one end hang lower than the other.
Put the long end over the short end
Wrap the long end under the little triangle that forms between your neck and the scarf.
Pull the 2 ends in opposite directions
Loop the long end under the little triangle again, underneath everything.
Now tighten the knot that forms
Spread out the top part of the scarf to give it “volume”
The Shawl Wrap
Take a pashmina or a large square scarf.
If you are using a pashmina, drape it around your back and tie it in the front at your chest.
If you are using a square scarf wrap it in half first and then drape it around your back
Add a pretty broach where you tie the 2 ends in the front to complete the look.
Take a large square scarf.
Fold it into a triangle
Wrap it from the front to the back with the pointed side down.
Tie the ends of the scarf in the back where your shoulder blades are.
Double knot the scarf or secure with a safety pin (to avoid embarrassing accidents).
The European Loop
Fold the scarf in half so that the ends meet.
Wrap the scarf around your neck
Loop the 2 ends of the scarf through the loop that forms.
Tighten the ends and adjust the scarf.
