I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again: I love scarves. They might even be my favorite accessory.

In fact, I’m often asked how to tie them. So ladies (and a few good men), it’s high time that I obliged. Below you’ll find two great ways to tie your scarves this season—for more great ways to accessorize, be sure to check out our October fashion spread. Thanks to our fashion intern, Chelsea, for her fabulous modeling skills!

Option 1: For every-day scarves, either at work or play.

    your demonstration is so excellent. I too have so many scarves of different lengths, but do not know how to wear them well. if you have any more suggestions or a book you can recommend, I certainly would appreciate it.
