Even if you are dressed head-to-toe in gray, you can create an interesting outfit with the simple addition of a scarf. A colorful 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.
Fold the scarf in half lengthwise. If the scarf is narrow, you can leave it unfolded if you prefer.
Place it around your neck. Pull one end down so that it is 2 inches longer than the other.
Cross the longer end over the shorter end to form a loop, and pull the longer end through the loop to face forward.
Straighten the front of the scarf so that it lies neatly over top the longer part of the scarf underneath.
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.
Place the scarf around your neck with the ends dangling in front.
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-center on either the right or left side of your neck.
