9 Ways to Wear a Winter Scarf, Courtesy of Instagram
I love looking at Instagram snaps of adorable girls in their winter scarfs. Not in a creepy way, just in a "Hey girl, I like your style" way, said in a low voice from the back of the closet. What?! Scarves make everyone look better. They frame faces, accentuate rosy cheeks, and imply that somewhere, sometime, there will be softly-falling snow.
Your scarf doesn’t have to contrast with the rest of your outfit. White lace + a pale pink knit is winter wear at its most ethereal.
Wear a huge scarf in lieu of a coat
If it’s not that cold outside, skip the jacket and opt for a giant knit scarf that covers your shoulders.
Wear it like an oversized tie
Scarves don’t have to be all about the neck, especially ones in thinner fabrics. Knot them low on your chest like this; it’s a necklace-tie hybrid made of softness.
Or put one in your hair
Heads get cold, too! Oversized earrings are an obvious requirement.
Tuck a preppy scarf under a preppier vest
Tell people it’s an ascot.
Wear it totally loose, like a bro
Bros don’t need to wrap scarves around their necks. They leave them long and hanging, a subtle reminder of their relationships (that was mean of me).
Tie it in a knot, tie it in a bow
An especially useful technique for those whose ears hang low.
Do it in faux fur

Use to protect your complexion
Baby, it’s cold outside.
