The Classic Cowboy

Thin fabrics, like silk, work well for this method and show off the print nicely. Fold one corner to the middle of the opposite side so that it forms a triangle. Put two ends of the triangle over the back of your neck, leaving a point hanging down in the middle of your body. Voila!

The Edgy Bun

A smaller scarf is ideal for this messy bun look. Simply make a bun on the top of your head. Don’t worry if some hair is falling down; the scarf will make it feel more secure. Instead of folding the scarf, twist it around itself and wrap the bun leaving, enough scarf to tie a tiny knot.

The French Knot

Take a square silk scarf and fold it into a long, thin piece. Next, find the middle of the scarf and put it on the front of your neck. Bring the ends of your scarf around to the front again. Tie a knot on the side of your neck and adjust it until you think it looks best.

The Twisted Turban  

For this bolder look, lay the middle your scarf at the back of your neck with the ends in front. Cross the two ends over each other, then twist them one more time so the end you started with is in the same hand. Tug tightly, and secure at the nape of your neck.
