This is more my style. I usually wear it like this or looselly tied to the front. However, sometimes, when tied to the back, I find the scarf sliding off or uneven halfway. How can I get it to stay in place. Anybody have tipe?

Is there a way to wear a smaller/shorter scarf without looking like a flight attendant (tie around neck)?

What about tying a knot or series of knots in it ... basically making it into a fabric necklace?

I love scarves ...
Here are some ways that I wear it: Tie it around my purse, tie it around my wrist like a bracelet, using it like a belt to cinch dresses or shirts, and lastly on my forehead.

Since the Arabian Scarfs or keffiyeh are so Hot right now, there are so so so many ways to wear it, specially because they're bigger than a regular scarf.

I like it the way beckham pulls it off in the last post ^ I always wear scarves but i just put them on and make it work haha. I try to make it look loose because I hate hate hate tight scarfs and that are really 'modelled' - blegh. I must say i never wear it as a belt (not for me) but i like it on my bag and around my arm (if it's small)

I like to tie silk scarves around my luggage when travelling! never expensive ones though, incase they get lost!
I also like to tie them around my bag, and using them as a belt is a good idea!

I have more ways of wearing scarves, after being inspired by my friends. My friends knots her AM skull scarf and puts beads in it and wears it on her forehead, tying it around a hat, she also ties it around her thigh, but I'm not sure that's the most attractive way to wear it.
