How To Tie A Summer Scarf For Any Occasion, From Morning Coffee To Date Night

From boho to grunge, summer scarves can add a distinctive vibe to any outfit. If you want to bring new life to your scarf look, today's your lucky day. I'm going to teach you how to tie a summer scarf, because there are more ways than one, if you can believe it. These scarf inspirations will leave you feeling like you splurged on a new scarf without even spending a dime. Trust me, you haven't thought of all the ways you could wear your beloved accessory.

P.S. If you're like, "OK, great scarves are cute/cool/whatever, but what do I wear with them in the first place?" no worries. As a total summer scarf lover, I've got your back. Some of my favorite looks to rock with a summer scarf include flowy summer dresses, jumpsuits and rompers, and cute statement sunglasses. I like to keep the attention on the scarf itself, picking pieces that coordinate without overpowering it.

Also, if you're tying your scarf in a really interesting, elaborate way, I recommend keeping your makeup low-key, too. Opt for fresh-faced makeup instead of a super glam contoured look so that your makeup and scarf aren't competing with each other. At the end of the day, though, do whatever makes you feel the most confident and gorgeous!

1. A Chill And Playful Hair Scarf Tied In Front

Early morning coffee date? This is the perfect way to sleep in as long as possible while still looking pulled together and chic.

2. Full Boho Flow

A statement scarf doesn't need anything elaborate to give an outfit a distinctive cool girl vibe. Just toss it around your neck and head for the door!

3. The Double-Wrapped Infinity Scarf

This is so perfect with a tank and jeans. Wrapping an infinity scarf twice is such an easy way to boost an otherwise simple look.

4. Tied In The Back

This look is so Soho-sophisticated. Secure your hair in a low ponytail and then wrap the scarf around the front of your neck. After, tie it over your ponytail in a loose knot and let the ends flow.

5. Southern France Casual Chic

When I studied abroad in Aix-en-Provence, all the French girls wrapped their scarves over their shoulders. It always looked so effortlessly pulled together and artistic!

6. Vacay Beach Bun

This look screams tropical vacation vibes. Pair it with a flowy maxi dress for the ultimate glam vacation look.

7. Double Knot Date Night

Knotting a scarf twice adds an elegant touch and is perfect paired with a simple white dress or tank and khakis with nude heels.

8. Boy Scout Style

This style, borrowed from the boy scouts, has become increasingly popular among fashion bloggers. Why? Because it takes two seconds to achieve and will add a boyish edge to any outfit.
