Have you ever wondered why Parisian women always look so darn chic and effortlessly cool? Although it has a lot to do with attitude, we suspect it also has plenty to do with their masterful scarf-wearing skills!
This spring, a printed scarf is a great way to incorporate a splash of vibrant color into your wardrobe as you transition out of winter and into sunnier days ahead. Choose a scarf done in a lightweight fabric like silk, cotton, linen or viscose to complement with your warm-weather favorites like dresses, cropped sweaters and tees.
A long scarf, otherwise known as an “oblong” scarf, is probably the most versatile scarf style out there. Below are five great ways to wear the oblong scarf this spring!
The Easy Shawl
1) Put an unfolded oblong scarf around your shoulders and pull the ends in a half knot, tight and high up your back. Tie the ends securely.
2) Pull the scarf fabric down your back to cover the ends.

The Neck Wrap
1) Place scarf behind your neck so the ends are equal length.
2) Wrap closely around the neck so it creates a turtleneck-like cover.
3) Tie the ends in a half knot.
4) Tuck the ends neatly under the scarf loops so they aren’t showing.

The Classic Slip Knot
1) Wrap a half-folded scarf around the back of your neck.
2) Pull both ends through the front loop. Adjust the knot so it sits on your chest comfortably.
The Knotted Twist
1) Take an oblong scarf and fold it lengthwise.
2) Loop it around your neck.
3) Take one of the ends and pull it over the loop then back under.
4) Take the other end and pull it under the loop and then back over.
The Loose Drape
1) Fold a long scarf in half lengthwise.
2) Grab diagonal ends.
3) Drape the scarf over your chest like a bib and pull the ends to the front.
4) Tie the ends in the front and tuck away.
Unless you’re part of a very small percentage of women who are blessed with unlimited closet space (P.S. we’re very jealous of you if you belong in that set!), chances are that a versatile wardrobe stands pretty high up on your shopping priority list.
That’s why we’re all about pieces that multitask—going from day to night with a mere swap of accessories & shoes! We take two of the summer’s most essential closet staples, the summer dress and shorts, to show you how easy it can be to get the most mileage out of these beloved pieces.
Who doesn’t love clothes that work overtime? We definitely do!
