The internet is full of scarf-tying tutorials. Here are 15 of them. But if you really want to step up your scarf game and stand out from the crowd, you definitely need to watch this “Advanced Scarfing Techniques” video, in which a very nervous man models some innovative scarf configurations for people who are “frightened and confused by scarves.” I’m totally adding “The Jet Pack” and “The Frightened Leper” to my scarf-tying repertoire.

Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD) is real and it’s a menace! Help beat the winter blues by bundling up in these colorful cold weather accessories. Seriously, it’s kind of difficult to be in a shitty mood with a hot pink pom-pom hat on.

Johnny Depp has never met a scarf he didn’t like. Johnny Depp loves scarves so much, that he wears them with nearly every ensemble, sometimes piling scarf on top of scarf. He even wears scarves as belts! (I heard that Johnny Depp once wore nine scarves at once. At the time, I thought it was just a rumor, but I’ve started to believe it could be true.) So who better than Johnny Depp to model six light and airy scarves that are perfect for spring?

My amassment of scarves is one of the most important components in my wardrobe. A good scarf changes any outfit, but it serves especially well if you’re prone to head-to-toe monochrome … and I am. If you were to sift through my closet, you’d find black, gray, more black, white, dark gray, heather gray, maybe some navy blue here and there… and a veritable kaleidoscope of colorful scarves. They’re mainly silk, which is a good indicator as to the time of year they favor: winter calls for thick, dark knits, but come March I’m busting out the flashy accessories left and right. If you don’t own a springtime scarf, now would be the time to invest in a really, really amazing one, because you’ll be wearing it for the next couple of months, right up until things start to get steamy. Here are my picks for silky scarves in punchy hues — I promise they will give any and all of your outfits an instant, seasonally appropriate facelift.
Infinity scarves, which consist of a singular loop of fabric, have gotten so popular that it’s actually becoming difficult to find a scarf with two separate ends. I, for one, have been loving this trend — infinity scarves are cute, cozy, convenient, and when you throw them on the ground they kind of look like a portal to another world — but the other day my friend said they reminded her of a giant bird’s nest around your neck, and now I can’t shake that visual. Plus, if normal scarves are phased out, all the fun ways to wear them will be rendered obsolete. So, what’s your vote on infinity scarves? Love ‘em or leave ‘em?
I’m slightly jealous of this video as I, the resident scarf expert at The Frisky, had planned to make my own scarf tutorial. Harumpf. I hate this girl and her scarf expertise, but I am mature enough to set my feelings aside. I would not begrudge you, stylish people of the world, the chance to wear scarves like a pro. But for the record, mine would have been funnier. [Fashionably Geek]
