The Western Style

The western way works best for those transitional crisp spring days.

To get the look you desire you can change the location and the type of the knot. This look looks great styled under a blazer or paired with a collared shirt. How would you style this look?

Over the Shoulders

To create this look, simply fold the scarf into a triangle and tie the two ends loosely into a knot (either at the front or side). This style is lovely with a square silk scarf and looks great with a dress or collared shirt. How would you wear this look?

 

Necktie Style
