How to tie and wear a men's scarf

Updated on October 11, 2010

Is a men's scarf fashionable

If you live in the northern United States, Canada, or anywhere else where it gets cold in the winter, a scarf is not only fashionable, it's a downright necessity. Scarves not only keep the neck warm, but they also provide another layer of clothing to match with your blazer, sweater, dress shirt, etc during the winter.

There are many different ways to tie a scarf around your neck. I'm just going to go over a few of those and provide some videos. Not all scarves will be able to achieve the desired look with all scarf knots. Thin scarves provide the least protection from the cold but are also the easiest to tie in a multitude of ways.  

The double flip scarf knot

The double flip is one of the easiest ways to wear a scarf. Just put the scarf over your neck backwards, so the ends are on your back. Cross the ends over and bring the around to the front. The double flip will completely cover the front of your neck and it can be done with any size or material scarf. It's the go-to knot for a long walk in the cold.  

The windsor knot

For some working professionals, a really good scarf knot is just to tie it in a regular windsor knot like you would tie a tie. I've already written extensively on how to tie a tie in various knots, so please read that and try it with your scarf. A scarf used in this way must be thin.  

The Parisian Knot

Take the scarf and fold it once lengthwise. Drape it over your neck. Insert the side with the two ends through the loop on the other side. Tighten.  

The formal scarf look

For formal occasions, the scarf should just be draped over the shoulder and tucked into the overcoat. The scarf should only be showing at the neckline where the overcoat doesn't cover.
