Even if you are dressed head-to-toe in grey, you can create an interesting outfit with the simple addition of a scarf. A colourful piece of fabric wrapped around your neck can instantly brighten up your face. Any length of scarf can work. If you have shorter-length scarf, it is quick and easy to learn a few tying tips to make it look neat and fashionable.

Skill level:


  1. 1

    Fold the scarf in half lengthwise. If the scarf is narrow, you can leave it unfolded if you prefer.

  2. 2

    Place it around your neck. Pull one end down so that it is 2 inches longer than the other.

  3. 3

    Cross the longer end over the shorter end to form a loop, and pull the longer end through the loop to face forward.

  4. 4

    Straighten the front of the scarf so that it lies neatly over top the longer part of the scarf underneath.

  1. 1

    Fold a square scarf along the bias to form a triangle. Grab one end in one hand and the other end in the other hand and twist the scarf.

  2. 2

    Place the scarf around your neck with the ends dangling in front.

  3. 3

    Pull one end underneath the other and loop it through to form a knot. Twist the fabric and knot it again if the scarf is long enough. Gently adjust the scarf so that the knot lies off-centre on either the right or left side of your neck.
