When big questions like ‘how to tie a scarf‘ comes to mind, the first place to go is Mr. Porter. The site can do it all. Guide us to the biggest trends of the season, tell us where to get the best pizza in the world and enlighten us about the risky business of being a spy. So of course we Google’d, and of course they got the answer. And actually they got an awesome guide to scarfs and how to tie it. So with inspiration and images coming from the one and only, Porter, here is the only guide you need when it comes to tying your scarf.
The Parisian is formed by folding the scarf in half, wrapping it around your neck and feeding the free ends through the loop. It’s one of the easier oneto tie, and gives you varying levels of insulation depending on how tight you like the loop to go. And it is easy to take off when you get into a warm bus, meeting room etc. Works just as great with a scarf paired with a blazer as it does with your favorite winter coat.
2. THE OVERHAND
This technique (on the picture demonstrated by American Esquire fashion director Mr Nick Sullivan), is really just a about putting on your favourite scarf and making a single loose knot under your chin. Like with the Parisien, you can play with the size of the loop. Looks incredible when you rock a blazer underneath your winter jacket.
3. TWICE AROUND
The tittle says it all. Wrap it twice around your neck to make it work. Important about this one is to have a long scarf. Our cable knit scarfs is not long enough, so if this is the style you like you could go for our polka dots scarf.
4. THE FOUR IN HAND
No, it is not just the name of the only tie knot you need to know, but also about how to tie your scarf. Not easy though. Start like you do with the Parisian, but this time only take one of the free ends through the loop. The other end then needs to enter the loop from underneath. Given its bulky nature, it’s a lot more palatable with lighter scarves in muted tones.
