Scarfs are one of the essentials of a winter wardrobe. Whether you're wearing a dress, coats, or sweaters, a scarf provides that extra warmth and comfort along with complimenting your style of choice. It can also add a splash of color to your dark winter clothing. 

There are many ways to tie a scarf and some styles can depend on your entire wardrobe as well. A woman’s scarf can be tied in many ways. Whether you're going for the simple wrap or a complicated twist, here are 8 ways to wrap a scarf for you! 

The Classic Drape: 

Take your scarf and fold it diagonally to create a triangle shape, then drape your scarf over the shoulders with the ends hanging down in the front. If you have a longer scarf, you can simply drape it over your neck and let the long ends drape over your shoulders. 

The Classic Loop:

For this look, first drape your scarf on your neck and then take one end and loop it around your neck. The classic loop is very easy and can also be worn for all types of settings. From a professional space to a casual look, there’s a reason, this technique is called a classic. 

The French Loop: 

Fold the scarf in half and drape over your neck with the folded end on one side of your shoulder and the fringed ends to the other. Take the fringed ends through the folded loop and pull it. It will fit snugly on your neck to keep you warm. 

The Ascot:

Drape the scarf over your neck, then tie the scarf around your neck with a simple knot, and let the ends hang down in front. This knot technique is suitable for both men and women as it looks good on both suits and dresses. 

The Shawl: 

Drape the scarf over your shoulders and let the ends hang down your arms. This is a great way to wear your scarf if you are wearing dresses for evening events as it looks elegant and also complements any body shape. 

The Belt Drape: 

Just like the classic drape, drape your shawl over your neck and let it hang, then secure it with a small belt. This adds that extra color to your style! 

The Infinity Scarf: 

You can tie the ends of your scarf to create a circle then loop the scarf two or three times over your neck. 

The Waterfall: 

Fold the scarf in half to create a rectangle. Drape the scarf around your neck and let one end hang lower than the other. Then take the inner corner of the longer end and pull it up to the other side and tuck it in to create a waterfall effect. This technique creates beautiful folds on the scarf and looks best for patterned designs. 

Besides these techniques, a women’s scarf can be tied in countless ways. You just need to get creative with it! Get a scarf, and get creative with ways to style it.

Tie it around your waist: 

Use a scarf and insert it through the belt loops on your pants. The scarf will double as an interesting belt!
