A scarf is essentially a rectangular cloth.
Yet most guys are perplexed on how to wear one correctly, and worse, many believe that wearing a scarf is too 'lady-like.'
We need to dispel this notion right now.
How Do I Know It's a Men's Scarf?
Men's scarves are often thinner than women's scarves, having a width of around six inches, and are usually on the shorter side of 55 inches in length to fall the same length as a blazer. Men's scarves can be rectangular, triangular, or square in form, influencing how the scarf is wrapped or tied.
Men's Scarf Styling Tips
Scarves are more than simply a long strip of cloth; how you wear them may be the difference between looking classy and outright crazy. Here are some essential scarf-wearing tips.
Select the Proper Weight
Don't buy heavy-duty equipment in October while it's still relatively warm outside. Your scarf game, like your jacket game, should unfold gradually.
Experiment with Contrast
Don't just grab the same scarf every time you leave the house. Look for eye-catching combinations, such as denim and black that will boost your entire ensemble.
In general, if you are a man going about his daily business, your scarf should be a solid color or a basic design with a limited color palette. Keep the feather boa for weekend club events or working on parade floats.
Wear bulkier scarves with heavier coats and silk and cotton scarves with lighter jackets. Never be the man who comes inside wearing an oversized winter scarf and a T-shirt.
Don't Be Afraid of a Little Drama
Simplicity and masculinity do not imply boredom. If you're wearing a lot of gray and black, a rich burgundy scarf can break up your weary banker look and demonstrate that you're not a mortician out to collect a body.
Men's Guide: How to Tie a Scarf
You can use various ways to put on your scarf, from something as simple as draping it over your shoulder to ridiculous knots that belong to a stitching manual. We've gathered only the most straightforward methods you can instantly learn and apply right now. Read on!
This is the most basic method to wear a scarf; drape it over your shoulders or neck and let the ends dangle loosely. To prevent scarves from slipping off your neck, the drape works best with medium-weight scarves.
An overhand knot, like an ascot, is similar to tying a knot in your shoelaces but on your scarf. Bring one end of the scarf over and under the other side, then draw it through the loop. The knot is then flattened and adjusted as needed.
Place the scarf around your shoulders and tie them up like you would with a shoelace. Adjust the front to be smoother and tighter around the neck as needed.
This is the most popular technique for guys to wear scarves and is very self-explanatory. Circle the scarf once around your shoulder and hang both ends in front.
How to knot it: Wrap the scarf around your neck once, leaving two ends dangling in front.
This is one additional level of warmth than the once-around knot since you're wrapping your scarf around your neck twice. This knotting technique is best suited to longer scarves.
Wrap the long scarf around your neck twice, leaving two short ends dangling in front.
