How can you not love scarves? Not only are they completely complimentary to your winter wardrobe but they also keep you warm. Actually, let's be honest for a minute. No winter wardrobe is complete without scarves. Although scarves are a winter must have there tends to be a mistery on how to wear them. It takes more than just throing it around your neck and tying it up. Scarves are a chic essential and can change the feel of an outfit instantly. Here are some great ways to wear scarves this winter so the next time you head out you'll know what to do with that scarf.

  1. The Double Loop: Place around your neck once with the seam in the back. Make a figure 8 in the front and put the bottom loop over your head one more time. You should now have two circles in the front. Make sure the two circles lie within each other so the scarf lays flat on your chest.

  2. Fold and Loop: Fold the scarf in half by bringing the ends together, draping it around the back of your neck, and then bringing the ends through the loop. You can then adjust it to as tight or as loose as you want.

  3. The French Knot: Take a long scarf and fold it in half lengthwise. Loop it around your neck. Take one of the loose ends and go over the loop and then back under. Take the second free end and go under the loop and then back over. Adjust the length as needed.

  4. The Necklace: Fold a long scarf if half lengthwise. Grab the diagonal ends and knot them together. Put it over your neck, then twist it and loop again.

  5. The Layer Knot: Start by putting the scarf around the front of your neck so the ends hang in back. Wrap the end around to the front and loosen the loop so that its comfortable around you neck. Cross one end over the other and tie a knot. Make sure the end of the scarf hanging down in front is a bit longer than the end behind it, and make sure the longer end covers the shorter end. Adjust the first loop so that it covers the knot and creates a tail in the front.

  6. Cozy Neck Tie Wrap: Take a long scarf and loop it twice around your neck. Tie the ends in a half knot and tuck them up under the scarf loops.

  7. The Triple Loop: Place a circle scarf around your neck. Make a figure 8 in the front and pull the scarf over your head. Pull the scarf taut so the two loops are close to your neck. Twist the scarf in front of you to create another figure 8. Pull the scarf over your head one more time.

  8. The Slip Knot: Fold your scarf lengthwise and insert the loose ends into the loop. Tighten the scarf in such a way that the loop with the two ends popping out cross over at the front of your neck.

  9. The Girly Windsor: Place the scarf behind your neck and let the ends fall in the front and tie knots in both, allowing one of the knots to be looser than the other. Then tuck the tighter knot into the looser knot and pull to tighten. This will give you a tidy look as if you were wearing a loose tie.

  10. The Pashmina: Fold the scarf in half. Position the center at the front of your neck, with the ends draped over your back. Crisscross the ends and bring them over to the front of your neck. Tie a loose knot at the front and tuck it underneath the wrapped portion of the scarf, keeping that upper layer (which covers the knot) loose. Flatten out the ends over the chest as much as you can, making them less puffy. Gently pull down the top layer to cover the knot. The result looks like a loose turtleneck combined with a scarf.
