Men’s Style Guide: 9 Ways to Tie a Scarf

The winter brings about many things: oodles of sweets at every party, more effort when starting your car in the morning, and an innate desire to throw snowballs at that one neighbor who never cleans up after his dog. However, more so than anything else, the winter means it’s going to be cold. Although there are a million ways to combat this, to do so both effortlessly and stylishly is a completely different situation altogether. Our suggestion for when it comes to versatility and effectiveness when combating the cold this winter, while also looking stylish: the scarf.

According to Beardbrand founder Eric Bandholz, there are an infinite number of ways to tie a scarf, but personally he suggest nine simple options for tying them up this winter. The first few can be achieved in under five seconds, with the rest taking a little more practice and patience, but we promise that spending the time to nail each look is worth it.

Style #1 – The Drape
Style #2 – The Reverse Drape
Style #3 – This one is best for longer scarves. Loop it in half, center the loop in the front and pull the loose ends through the hole.
Style #4 – For when it’s super cold, we have the Twice Around, which is basically the reverse drape, doubled back.
Style #5 – Four in the Hand
Style #6 – The Big Knot
Style #7 – The Reverse Drape Cross
Style #8 – The All-Around, for when it’s super cold out
Style #9 – The Once Around
