5 Ways to Wear the Oblong Scarf

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.
