Men's Scarves: Sexy Winter Styles

Updated on October 22, 2012

Someone please tell me why more men don’t take advantage of automatic sex appeal? Scarves are like dress shirts – every man can look good in one. So why don’t y’all wear them more often? Even if you live somewhere like Texas, there will be at least one opportunity for you to wear one during the year! European men wear them on a regular basis, but American men, not so much. And I say that as someone who grew up in a part of the US that saw at least 12 school snow days each year. The fact is, scarves make you look good. In fact, the right scarf can make the average man twice as hot. Seriously, you know I wouldn’t lie to you! The trick is wearing the right kind scarf – cos they don’t all have sex-appeal factor.

Scarf Savvy

  • Size Matters.

Long is good – if it’s too short you won’t be able to wrap it, and that’s where most of the sex appeal comes from. You want something you can wrap 2 or 3 times, and still have the ends able to reach somewhere close to tie-length.

  • Thickness Matters.

Get something with a bit of bulk, you don’t want something that looks like a roll of toilet paper. Mind, you don’t want to look like you’re wearing a neck brace, either, so don’t overdo it.

  • Stripes and plaid work best.

Men look fantastic in a plain colored jacket, paired with a patterned scarf like those pictured here. Tartans look pretty good on most men, and stripes are practically guaranteed to look fantastic.

  • Colors are sexy.

A colorful scarf can really be charming. That said, you don’t need to have every color in the rainbow represented. Pick something with 2 or 3 colors, or 1 color with several shades. These tend to go with any kind of jacket you might have.

  • Knots are sexiest.

Don’t ask me why, but the way a man ties his knot can really affect the overall look. Generally, a loose, fat knot just under the chin looks best. Alternatively, a firm knot that’s been wound several times can also look good, and can be worn at the chin or a bit further down.

  • Proper placement.

If you’re wearing a jacket with lapels, a draped scarf should go under the lapels. If you’ve tied the scarf, they tend to look best tucked into the jacket, with a nice fat knot resting under the chin. If your scarf is a bit short, these look best tucked in, as well.

A little over-the-top!
A little over-the-top!

Things to avoid

  • Paisley looks a bit silly on most men, I recommend avoiding it.
  • Extra long tassles look a bit frou-frou. I recommend they not be longer than the width of your palm.
  • Super-loose-knit scarves fall apart pretty easily – if you’re a man who knows how to care for these, go for it – if not, don’t waste your money.
  • White doesn’t stay white for long without careful attention – I’d avoid these.
  • Super-long scarves make us think you’re overcompensating… long is good enough, I promise!
