by DEEPA RAMUDAMU

Despite the unpredictable weather in Maryland, the temperatures are steadily dropping and this means one thing: it’s time to bring out your scarves.  From infinity styles to fringed, scarves are one of the coziest ways to ward off the cold.  Here are three ways to style your scarves.

Belted At The Waist

If your scarf is really long and hangs past your waist, you can belt it. Whether you use a skinny or thick belt, it will make your waist much more defined and give you that hourglass shape many covet.  It is also a great way to keep your scarf from blowing into your face and ruining your lipstick in windy weather.

In A Fun Knot

A lot of us just throw our scarves around our necks and call it a day. But to give your outfit more visual interest, you can tie your scarf into an intricate knot.  It looks complicated, but it’s really easy.  Videos like this one from WendysLookBook give you step-by-step instructions that are simple to follow.

As A Cozy Hood

If your scarf is really wide, it can double as a hood.  Just pull the ends of the scarf over your head.  You can use bobby pins to secure your scarf in place if you think it will fall off.  This way, your ears and your neck will be warm, no earmuffs needed.  But if you do not have a big enough scarf, this one on Etsy, pictured above, is specially designed to wear over your head.

With so many different designs and patterns, scarves are a great way to keep yourself warm and still show off your individual style.  With a few creative tricks, you can take your scarves from basic to unique.
