The Coolest Way to Wear Your Scarf (With Step-by-Step Instructions)

“How do I wear a scarf?” Did you know that’s one of the most frequently googled fashion questions year after year? While there are countless ways to style the cold-weather accessory, choosing our favorite is a no-brainer. Without a doubt, this fall we're most looking forward to sporting the scarf/wrap/shawl hybrid that’s effortlessly cool. Here’s our breakdown of how to do it, but if you’re more of a visual learner, we love this handy tutorial (check out the “cozy shoulder wrap”).

Step 1: Drape your (unfolded) scarf evenly over both shoulders.

Step 2: Pull one of the front corners back behind the opposite shoulder, tucking it underneath the scarf.

Step 3: Take the remaining front corner, place it over the opposite shoulder, and tuck it in behind your neck to keep it in place.

Tip: The bigger the scarf, the better.
