12 Stylish Ways to Wear Scarves This Fall

It’s time to start piling on the layers, and scarves are a cozy accessory we can’t live without in the fall. Here are 12 ways to wear scarves, from skinny scarves to blanket scarves, as seen on some of our favorite bloggers.


Wrapped Scarf



A classic pairing like chambray and denim (yes, the Canadian tuxedo is now a classic) can work during any season with the right accessories. Button up your chambray shirt, and wrap a printed scarf around your neck as Ahn of 9 to 5 Chic did.


Skinny Scarf



There are so many ways to wear scarves that align with the season’s retro trend. Add a little glamour to a mini dress, as Wendy’s Lookbook did, and loop a skinny scarf around your neck a few times in place of a necklace.


Parisian Scarf



Want to put a Parisian spin on your outfit? Try this easy-to-recreate look seen on Pam of The Girl from Panama, which includes a printed silk neck scarf, a long tailored vest, and a pair of cuffed jeans.


Watercolor Scarf



There are endless ways to wear scarves in transitional weather. Drape a printed scarf over a shirt dress—we love this watercolor version over an olive green dress on Danielle of Envision Pretty.


Over-sized Scarf



Caitlin of Southern Curls and Pearls looks cozy in her oversized scarf. Make this your new go-to weekend outfit for chilly fall days.


Animal Print Scarf



There are so many cute ways to wear scarves in animal prints, and we love this classic day-to-night outfit on Maria of Mia Mia Mine. You can’t go wrong with a little leopard print.


Neutral Scarf



One of the easiest ways to wear a scarf is to wear one over a simple outfit, like a white blouse and skinny jeans. This combination of textures in neutral hues on Merritt of The Style Scribe looks effortlessly luxe.


Pinned Scarf



Take your scarf from an afterthought to a focal point with a few simple tricks. Wear a monochromatic outfit, as Kate of The Fancy Pants Report did in all black, and add a scarf in a contrasting hue. To keep the scarf in place and to add a little something special, pin it with a pretty brooch.


Plaid Scarf



Every girl needs a plaid scarf this fall, and Julia of Gal Meets Glam wears hers as a statement piece. This is an outfit you can throw on and go that still looks as if you put thought into your look—and that’s the goal, isn’t it?


Knit Scarf



Most ways to wear scarves are as practical as they are stylish. On days when you need a little extra warmth, opt for a chunky knit scarf, like this one on Tiphanie’s Diary. We love how this loose-knit scarf looks draped over a cozy sweater.


Neck Scarf



If you’re looking for ways to wear scarves that play up the season’s ’70s trend, look no further. Knot a silk neck scarf—bonus points for one with a retro print, like this one on Emily of Stiletto Beats—over a sleeveless sweater or crop top.


Blanket Scarf



Cozy and super-easy to wear, a blanket scarf is a no-brainer when it comes to cold-weather accessories. We love blanket scarves that have rich colors and mismatched textures. When in doubt, keep it simple like Mariann’s of Cashmere in Style —her blue jeans and red bag bring out the tones in her scarf perfectly.
