Chic & Easy Scarf Styles: 1 Scarf, 3 Ways

3 scarf styles EMKY

Scarves are one of my staples when it comes to cold weather. There are so many different scarf styles and ways to tie your favorite scarf. I especially love a scarf that has a fun print, so when EMKY scarves reached out to me, I instantly fell in love with this unique elephant print silk scarf. You all know I love color and prints, and this scarf has such an eclectic flair and adorable mix of animal print, geometric shapes, and polka dots. I thought it would be fun to show you how to tie this scarf in 3 chic and easy ways!

Chic & Easy Scarf Styles #1: The Lazy Girl Way

scarf styles 3 ways to tie

The easiest way to style your favorite scarf is simply to loop it around your neck with the ends hanging evenly. This style involves no fussiness and is a full-proof way to spice up any outfit. This “lazy girl” style is perfect for a statement scarf that looks good no matter how you tie it. I also fluffed the scarf a bit to let the material spread out and show more of the pretty print.

Chic & Easy Scarf Styles #2: The Classic Way

This is the most classic style, where you loop both ends of the scarf through to create a bundled effect at the neck. I like this style for colder weather when I need extra warmth and protection from the wind. For all the preppy girls out there, this style is for you as it’s a lot neater than the first style and looks great peeking out under a peacoat.

Chic & Easy Scarf Styles #3: The Creative Way

I’m calling this the “creative way” because this style is my own invention. I wanted to showcase the print more and also play off the shoulder detail on my sweater, so I decided to create a side drape on one shoulder with the scarf to contrast the sequin detail on the other shoulder. This style works best for a large, printed scarf where you can play with the draping and showcase different elements of the print.

For the rest of my outfit, I paired the scarf with black and white pieces for a classic, preppy vibe. How pretty are the sequined sleeves on this sweater? I love the way it looks with the colorful print on the scarf. I completed the look with pops of red including red flats and a big red ring, and a grey shoulder bag from dressbarn.
