Scintillating Scarves

Adding a scarf to your outfit is the perfect way to finish the look. Scarves are an easy-to-wear, quick throw-on accessory, which is ideal for this season. They offer endless possibilities to enhance the look of your outfit. You’re outfit can be as simple as a plain tee matched up with blue denim, however by simply adding that stunning scarf you have completely brighten up your look.

Living in Canada, you can never have enough scarves in your closet. Not only do these super soft and playful scarves keep us warm during those winter days, but throwing on a scarf can also add splash of colour to an outfit. Winter is a great excuse to accessorize. During those chilly winter days, where everyone seems to wear just dark colours, why not throw on a colourful scarf to brighten up your outfit (and you’re day)? It is the perfect way to look good and stay warm. These stunning scarves add flair to that specific style or give it a soft yet playful look that will make you feel like a million bucks.

We’re seeing scarves everywhere this season. Light silk scarves, wool knit scarves, linen scarves, you name it! With scarves, the possibilities are endless. This ideal winter accessory can be worn multiple ways - they are versatile in every way! These scarf tying techniques will help you achieve that look that will not only brighten up your outfit, but also keep you warm this season.

Loopin’ Around

For that layered, thrown-on look, loop your scarf around your neck once or twice, depending on the length of your scarf. Pull it down and scrunch it up to it give some volume and texture. This look is perfect with a short leather jacket or a big chunky sweater. For those cold winter days, I suggest wearing a wool knit scarf for extra warmth.

Pretty Parisian

It’s simple to get that classic Parisian look. First, fold it in half lengthwise and follow this by simply wrapping it around your neck. The loop should be on one side and the fringe on the other. Finally, pull the fringe side through the loop. You may make it as loose or as tight as you want, whatever is most comfortable to you!

Wrap it Up

You can wear your scarf as a wrap to give it that elegant look. First, wrap the scarf around your shoulders. Then simply cross the left side over your right shoulder and your right side over your left shoulder. It’s as simple as that!

Toasty Turtleneck

On those extreme harsh winter days, the best way to wear your scarf is as a turtle neck. The first step is to put the scarf on the back of your neck. Wrap it around as many times as possible until creating that turtle-neck look. You may tuck in the ends inside, or you may leave them out. A bright solid scarf looks great wrapped this way with a simply black coat - It’s a classic winter look!

Nifty Necktie

Necktie scarves add a touch of glamour and it is perfect for any occasion – it can be can a casual or a formal look. In order to get this clean elegant look, I suggest using a squared silk scarf. To start, fold the scarf into a triangle. Wrap the scarf around your neck, from the front to the back. Bring the two ends around and tie them into a lose knot at the front. This look is perfect for the office, for a formal event in the evening, or even just a casual day. A simple silk necktie scarf adds a touch of elegance to your outfit and overall look.
