5 ways to wear a vintage scarf

A vintage scarf is not just an accessory, it can make your entire outfit. Vintage scarves have been an essential wardrobe item for many women for many years. Classic, casual or a fun festival vibe: discover 5 inspiring ways to wear a scarf.

The possibilities in how to wear a scarf are endless. Silky scarves often work best because of the smooth fabric, but you can of course also use something else. Many secondhand shops have baskets full of vintage designs for very good prices. We used vintage scarves from our own styling archive to make these videos. Here are 5 different ways to tie a scarf. Once you've mastered these, you can continue with countless variations!


For a romantic look, fold your scarf into a flower. For the best result, use a square scarf that you fold in half. 



Wear a scarf over a turtleneck sweater for an extra chic touch. Beautiful doesn't always have to be complicated.



You can make any look stylish with this technique. We opted for a plain top with a round neck in a contrasting color. 



This style is so simple you can't go wrong. Great for buns and ponytails in all shapes and sizes! 



This look is great if you're going to a festival or if your style is more quirky or playful. Use a long scarf for this style, and four thin rubber bands.
