4 Ways You Can Style Your Short Scarf

Before I learned the fashion secret to conquer my nickel allergy I avoided accessorizing with costume jewelry. To accessorize, I resorted to layers such as scarves for color, texture, and over-all chic-ness. I have become really creative with the way I tie my scarves and since shorter scarves can be a little tricky to style I am sharing 4 of my ‘go-to’ looks.

The Slip-Knot is an easy style that lends a tidy but flow-y look to a collar shirt. If you know how to tie a man’s tie, then you’ll know how to tie The Slip-Knot.

Step 1 – Fold the scarf into a triangle and continue with smaller folds until the scarf resembles a ribbon.

Step 2 – Place the scarf one end longer around your neck and wrap the longer end twice around the smaller end and then up over the top.

Step 3 – Tuck the longer piece into the knot and flare.


Whenever I want an added feminine touch to an outfit I resort to The Bow. It also makes you look like a gift which is always nice (laughing). This style usually works best with a neckline that isn’t too fussy; all the attention will be on that cute little bow dangling delicately from your neck so choose a pretty and soft fabric.

Step 1 – Fold the scarf into a triangle and continue with smaller folds until the scarf resembles a ribbon.

Step 2 – Tie the scarf once and tighten slightly.

Step 3 – Form a bow, puff out the tied ends, and pull scarf to one side of your neck.

TIP: To create a perfect bow that hangs straight, loop the hanging piece that flaps over around the piece that hangs under. If the piece that hangs under is wrapped around the piece that flaps over then the bow will be lopsided, tending to hang vertically. If done correctly, the bow will hang perfectly horizontal.


I consider myself an artist of sorts so The Atelier style of tying my scarves is truly my favorite and just feels so right. When I am wearing a high collar shirt, I open the first few buttons and choose a bright and fun scarf with a sturdy structure to make myself look like an artist fresh out of the studio (laughing).

Step 1 – Fold the scarf into a triangle and then fold the triangle in half.

Step 2 – Wrap the scarf, triangle in front, around the back of your neck and then towards the front again.

Step 3 – Double knot the loose ends.


Being the Texas girl that I am, I can’t help but to add a little western flare to my wardrobe every now-and-then. The Cowgirl is a perfect way to add a western touch sans cowboy hat and horse…although I wouldn't judge you if you did add the hat and horse

Step 1 – Fold the scarf into a triangle.

Step 2 – Wrap the scarf loosely around your neck and tie the ends.

Step 3 – Drape the scarf to where the tied ends hang on one shoulder and the triangle piece hangs near the other shoulder.

A scarf is a simple way to accessorize your wardrobe and it lends such a chic touch! I hope you are able to add these styles to your wardrobe or perhaps they can inspire you to play around with your own scarves to come up with some new styles!
