I have been asked multiple times, whether it via email or in person, by readers if I have advice on how to tie a scarf. As a girl from the south I would rarely need to wear a scarf, so I was hesitant to answer the question.

Now that I am in DC, I clearly need to learn this new art so many women around me seem to have down. So let’s learn together, shall we?

I dug around online for a simple breakdown of types of ways to tie a scarf, and this graphic below (found via Cap Hill Style) seems to be the best out there. Also, see a few of the scarves I have my eye on after.

Houndstooth Scarf {Payless}

Ooh, love that guide! I recently wrote about tying scarves, too, but I hadn’t seen that one (http://www.closet-coach.com/2011/09/27/ask-the-closet-coach-how-to-wear-an-hermes-scarf/).

I can’t get enough suggestions on scarf-tying options!
