Skinny scarves, a longtime favourite of female fashionistas, has gained popularity among men thanks to celebrity trendsetters like Russell Brand. Both women and men can enhance their style with a skinny scarf. If you're a man, this type of scarf works best on a larger body frame and a height on either end of the tall and short spectrum. If you're short and lanky, this look might not suit you.

  1. 1

    Choose a bold-coloured scarf to make the accessory the centre of the outfit. Choose a scarf that matches your outfit to create a fashionable, but low-key, monochromatic look.

    If you're a tall, well-built man, pair a monochrome skinny scarf with a pea coat. Wrap the scarf loosely around your neck. The structure of the coat adds balance to the thin lines of the scarf while the scarf's looseness doesn't bring attention to the neck and chest region.

  3. 3

    Guys with a slighter build might opt for a fun, bold scarf. Pair it with a v-neck shirt. Tie the scarf in a loose knot, with the knot hanging slightly below the neckline of the shirt. This creates more length in the neck, granting the illusion of more height.
