Plaid Scarf Owners: 4 Ways To Wear An Oversized Plaid Scarf Posted by: Aaron Stearns | 0 Comments

The modern-day plaid blanket scarf— that long, rectangular contrivance — is not as versatile as you might think. It can really only do one thing: Wrap.

And like many mass-produced things, it has popularity, but it doesn’t have much range.

A better, more old-school idea is an oversized plaid scarf that can be folded and tied into many beautiful variations. But we realize the versatility of a plaid scarf is also its downfall — the options are endless, so where the heck do you start?

We’re here to help with four ways to turn your multi-talented plaid scarf into something that perfectly complements your outfit. Oh yes, and keeps you warm, too.

  1. Basic Loop

  • Hold the fabric by the corners and fold into a loose triangle.
  • Wrap around your neck, letting the point of the triangle serve as a centerpiece.
  • Tuck in the edges of the plaid scarf. Adjust front of the oversized scarf to lay flat.

Best worn with: The oversized white button-up shirt or a simple tee.

  1. Below the Belt:

  • Start with a loose triangle fold.
  • Center the shawl on the back of your neck then wrap forward over your shoulders.
  • Hold the edges firmly with one hand, while you slide a thin belt behind you and buckle the plaid scarf into place.

Best worn with: A simple dress or a long top with skinny jeans or leggings.

  1. The Long-Line Look
