The Drape

There are a few ways to tie a scarf that don’t require any knots. The first one we'll be discussing is called the drape and is literally just putting the scarf around your neck to use a fashion statement. This style is pretty simple as all you'll really need to do is to drape the scarf around your neck and let it hang evenly.

This is a great entry-level knot that's best suited for mild days when you want a little extra warmth and want to add a stylish touch to your ensemble. If the weather takes a colder turn, consider switching to a different knot.

Here's how to wear your scarf in this style:

  1. Begin by wrapping the scarf around your neck so that one end is longer than the other; the longer end should be on the back of the neck.
  2. Put the long side of the scarf around your neck and then put the short side over it, covering your chest. Adjust the scarf to expose as much or as little of your neck as you like.

Here's how to tie the once around knot:

  1. Drape the scarf around your neck evenly. 
  2. Take both ends of the scarf and cross them so that when you pull them apart, the scarf will be doubled over.
  3. Loop the scarf through the hole, then bring it back down through the loop. Adjust the length to how you want and tie it off.
