Easy Ways To Wear A Scarf For Men
Some men shy away from scarves for fear that they are much too feminine to sport. Well, gentlemen, think again. Scarves have been a staple in the realm of all things manly for centuries. They’ve been used for military rankings, pilots, and even warriors with armor to keep warm.
So before you glance over this perfectly functional, if not essential Winter staple, take a look at these 5 manly ways to wear a scarf:
#1 Once Around
This works well with medium to long scarves. Simply wrap the scarf around your neck once and leave the two ends dangling in front. This is an easy way to wear a scarf and works with just about any pattern and color.
This is best worn with medium length (or shorter) scarves since it doesn’t involve any wrapping. Simply drape the scarf around your neck so the ends are laying over your chest, under your coat. It’s the easiest way to wear a scarf since there are no knots involved.
Pro Tip: If you are wearing a sports jacket or suit, this is THE style to go with.
#3 Reverse Drape
The reverse drape is used with longer scarves. Simply wind the scarf around your neck once and turn it around so you can push the ends to the back. This is a great look that keeps you very warm though it does come undone easily, so if you’ll be moving around a bit – this is not the style for you.
#4 Parisian Knot
Make sure you have a longer scarf for this particular style. This is a fairly easy-to-do knot that stays put, keeps you warm, and adds a bit more refinement to your look. Fold the scarf in half in the middle and hold the doubled end in one hand while passing the loose ends around the back of your neck with the other. Tuck the ends through the bend and pull snugly.

#5 All Around
This style keeps you warm, eliminating that wind chill that hits your neck. It’s a classic style that’s easy to do and looks effortlessly cool. To achieve, drape around your neck with one end shorter than the other. Wrap the long end around your neck until it’s completely used up. Tuck both ends into the wrap scarf, so it’s set in place.
There you have it. 5 easy ways to wear a scarf that are hardly feminine. Once you master these looks, get a bit more adventurous with your scarf wearing. Try a bold color or a more difficult knot to showcase your style knowledge. And remember, a scarf is not the same thing as a tie. It shouldn’t be tightly wrapped or snug around your neck.
