For most things in life, it's not uncommon to make things harder than they have to be, but it doesn't have to be hard when it comes to how to wear a scarf. We have four easy tying techniques anyone can learn in no time at all. We also have some wildly unique twisting tying techniques if you're up for a challenge.

  At Late Sunday, we believe in the arts of staying present, and tying a scarf is one of those daily rituals that can ground us in the present. Sure, you could just throw on a shirt and leave the house without putting on deodorant or brushing your teeth, but the fact remains that, once grounded, the day tends to move a little more smoothly, like petting a cat in the right direction, rather than going against the grain of wood and snagging yourself a nice little splinter.

  Try out some of our easiest ways for tying a scarf and see if you can't get it. And if you so choose, move onto the expert level where our owner and chief, Matthew, throws a couple curveball tying styles at you. It may take a few tries, but there's no better party trick than tying a scarf like an Olympian.

Tying Techniques For Scarves

There are many different ways to wear a scarf, but what it really comes down to is style. But what is style, really? At Late Sunday, we believe style is an outward expression of what’s happening inside. But it can also be technical, meaning there are several ways to style yourself with a scarf, a few of the following are ones we recommend specifically when wearing a hoodie, too. 

Looping a Scarf:

  1. Simple Loop:
    • Place the scarf around your neck, ensuring both ends are even.
    • Take one end and make a loose loop.
    • Pass the other end through the loop.
    • Adjust the loop and ends to your desired tightness and length.
  2. Infinity Loop:
    • Start by making a simple loop as described above.
    • Twist the loop once to create a figure-eight shape.
    • Pull the bottom loop up and over your head, placing it around your neck.
    • Adjust the loops as needed for style and comfort.
  3. Knotted Loop:
    • Fold the scarf in half.
    • Place the folded scarf around your neck, with the looped end on one side and the loose ends on the other.
    • Take the loose ends and pull them through the loop.
    • Adjust the knot and ends to your liking.
  4. The Drape:
    • Place the scarf around your neck, ensuring both ends are even.
    • Let the scarf hang loosely around your neck with both ends falling evenly in front.

    Style Hack: Avoiding symmetry and having  the two ends being uneven is going to look more stylish. 

      Obviously, there are many ways to tie a scarf (or to drape) so experiment with what looks and feels right, especially from outfit to outfit and mood to mood. If that doesn't work, just stay home with your cozy hoodie and snuggle in with us.

      To love, happiness, adventure and mystery. That's the Late Sunday way.

      Big love.
