    I just purchased a wool overcoat and a cashmere scarf and realized this is my "serious" wear of a scarf. Â So I pose this question to the board, what is the proper way to wear a scarf? Â I have a general idea but it's always go to get a second opinion (or third, or fourth....) Â Thanks for the input. Â [​IMG]

    I think it depends on the temperature and what feels comfortable for you. If it's really cold out and my overcoat is fully buttoned I like to fold the scarf in half and put the loose ends through the loop and cinch in around my neck. If it's chilly or my coat is undone I just like to let it hang loosely around my neck. If it's a really thick scarf and I'm just wearing a sweater I just put the scarf on unevenly and throw the long end behind me. Hope that helps.

    Just to add to what's been written by Aaron above, you should definitely consider what type of scarf it is (material, thickness, length, etc..). I have a thick hand-knit scarf (a present of course) which really doesn't have the length to be worn with one end loose in the front/back. However, I do have a wool Winter 04/05 Dior style super long scarf which I only wear with a loose end in front and back. Typical famous cashmere scarves (e.g., Burberry's, Johnston's, Drake's, etc.) are pretty versatile and can be worn in a variety of styles as mentioned above.
