Your guide to Scarf Styling- Oblong


Square. Oblong. Embellished. Ruffled. Seasonal. And more. With the endless variety of scarves available, there are even more ways to wear them.

For office wear, the most suitable ones are the square, oblong(skinny and long) and seasonal.

This one is probably the easiest way to wear a scarf:


(Yeah, we didn’t think so)


You could have a look at the styles created below for the  oblong scarf variety i.e. skinny ones as well as the lengthy.


Style A : This is a bold style- looks preppy with a print or elegant with lace pattern. Pair this with a simple dress, making the bow your statement piece.

Style B : This is the simplest style with straight fold. Can be worn uneven or otherwise.

Style C : This is an intricate style and needs adequate room to display its multiple loops. Try  using a lighter material for this look, as heavier and bulky ones will overwhelm the               detail.

Style D : A simple look, with a twist. Looks best with plain scarves.

Style E and F : Try using an elaborately patterned or interestingly textured scarf for this         style. Looping it several times will highlight the various colours and inter-woven                    materials. Style E is best worn in a heavy material, for chillier weather.

Style G : This works beautifully under a jacket and is ideal with lighter materials.

Style H : Both long and short scarves work for this style, depending on the number of times the scarf is wrapped around the neck.

Style I : This classic style looks best under a coat, with the top knot peeking out for                 additional colour.

Style J : If you use a short scarf and keep the rolled knot close to the neck, this style can be    used for warmth.

Have fun this season trying out these different styles! Coming up soon will be styling for square scarves.
