6 Ways to Wear Your New Favorite Accessory!

I feel like that title is suuuper long, but also very accurate.

If you haven't jumped on the hair/neck/wrist scarf train yet, you need to get in on this! These cute scarves/bandanas that are so in right now are the perfect accessory to add to any outfit.  The one's I've found and am wearing in this post are also super inexpensive.  Today I'm sharing my favorite ways to wear them.

1. Tied around the wrist.

This was the first way I ever accessorized with a scarf.  It's subtle, but adds a cute little pop of color to any neutral outfit.  To tie, fold the scarf into a triangle, then continue to fold until it becomes long and thin.  I placed my wrist (palm facing down) on top of the middle section of the scarf, then wrapped each end up and around my wrist twice, so that the two ends ended up on top of my wrist.  I then tied the ends in a double knot. 

2. Tied at the end of a braid.

I love this style, especially when wearing a hat! I think this looks best with a looser braid, and with extra hair left out on the ends.  Secure your braid with a hair tie, then double knot your scarf (after you've folded it up long and narrow), with the knot above the hair tie so it stays secure. 

3. Around a top knot.

Lately I've been loving wearing my (3-day post washed) hair in a half-up top knot! I love having my hair out of my face, and this is a cute way to keep it up while still having some hair showing. First, secure your hair in a top knot using a hair tie. I do my half-up top knots by wrapping my hair around like a ballerina bun, then pulling it apart a little to create a messier look. With this look, you want your bun to be pretty high on top of your head so that you can still see some hair over the top of the scarf.

 Take your folded up scarf and start with the middle part of the scarf at the back of your bun, tie both ends around to the front, cross over, and then cross over again in the back.  Tie the two ends in a double knot at the front of the bun.  You may have to adjust how many times you tie it around depending on how long your scarf is.

4. Around your neck.

This is probably the most common way you see people wearing scarves. Again, I love how it adds just a little something to a simple outfit. For this look, just fold up your scarf so it's long and narrow again, then start with the middle of the scarf at the back of your neck and tie the ends in front.  I like to tie mine off to the side.

5. Wear as a headband.

This is another cute and fun way to keep some of my hair back and out of my face. To tie, tuck your hair behind your ears, then place the middle part of the scarf under the bottom of your hair, and tie the ends together at the top, right over where your hair is parted.

6. Around a messy bun.

This is similar to the half-up top knot look, but I love wearing a scarf this way when I'm throwing all my hair up at the pool or beach! It just looks cuter 🙃

7. BONUS STYLE: Tie around your favorite bag.

Had to add this in because I love the look of a scarf that matches your outfit, tied around your bag!

I linked the two scarves pictured in the photos above, as well as some of my other favorite scarves below. Although the scarf in the beach photos is currently sold out 😭 but the store I got it from has some other super cute ones.  Find them here (use code saltyblondes for free shipping on your order).
