In the colder months, a statement scarf can take a look from dull to dapper, by adding colors or patterns to make it stand out. The best thing to remember is to not spend too much time with them. Throwing it on should be as effortless as your personal style is.

In today’s post I’ll highlight ways to wear a scarf based on the occasion (or for absolutely no occasion at all).


The Sophisticate: lay scarf around shoulders in a loose circular motion and allow the tassels to hang balanced over each side of chest. This is my favorite.

The Loop: it’s so easy, just loop then tuck.

The Mob Boss: line the scarf under your coat. overlapping with the lapel symmetrically.

If this sounds complicated and all else fails, just simply place the scarf around your neck and you’re good to go. Have fun with it, and be sure to choose a scarf that not only keeps you warm, but also shows your personality.

Select a scarf the same way you’d pick out your favorite neck tie, and remember: personality is the most important part. It’s also not about how much you spend – there’s a huge spectrum in pricing. The one I’m wearing was like $70 by J.Crew. It’s more about how much you like it and if it’s well made.
