Spring is finally officially here and I’m counting down the days until I can wear all of my spring and summer accessories this year! During the fall and winter, I mainly rely on layers to feel “put together.” But once it warms up and I’m not piling on the layers, I always turn to my accessories to make my outfits feel a little less boring. Statement shoes, quirky bags, jewelry, sunglasses, hats, and scarves all tend to make my spring and summer dresses pop a bit more! Scarves are one of the easiest way to accessorize in the spring, especially because they double as an added layer of warmth when the temperatures are so up-and-down. However, scarves can be tricky for a lot of people… I’m constantly getting questions about how to wear scarves so I figured I’d break down a few of my favorite ways to tie and style scarves in the spring and summer!
1. Lightly drape around your neck once! This is especially great for scarves with tassels, pom poms, or fun details like frayed edges.
2. Once you’ve wrapped your scarf around once (#1), simply cross the two ends and tighten up under the loop! I like to move my knot to the side to be a bit off center.
3. Tie your scarf onto your bag! This is a fun trick for when you walk into an overly-air-conditioned building and need a wrap.
4. You can also tie a scarf around the edge of your straw hat! This works best with shorter scarves.
5. Simply tie each end of the scarf in a loose knot! This way of tying looks great on it’s own, but you could also wrap around your neck once (#1), too, if the scarf is extra long.
