A circle scarf, which is often interchangeably called an "infinity scarf" for its innovative design that is joined at both ends instead of being open at one end like most scarves, is an essential style accessory that can take an ordinary outfit into the realm of extraordinary style in just a few moments. Learning how to wear a circle scarf can give you access to a whole new level of individual style expression and lend fun and creativity to your everyday and evening wardrobe. Not just for warmth or function, the circle scarf offers up pure fashion and fun. Learn how to wear a circle scarf in several neat ways that you can seamlessly blend in with your existing wardrobe to keep your style fresh and modern.
While a circle scarf carries the label of "scarf", it can also be so much more. For instance, with a few simple loops and drapes, your everyday circle scarf can turn into a cozy, fashionable shawl. Simply put your arms through either end of the circle scarf where the loops meet, and pull it up over your shoulders to rest around your shoulder blades. You can then adjust it for a thinner or a thicker shawl as that day's outfit indicates.
Is the wind picking up just at that moment when you realize you forgot your cute winter hat? This is the perfect moment to send in the circle scarf you've been wearing around your neck to the rescue. Simply pull the circle scarf over your head to right in front of the crown of your head. Then adjust it so the scarf part drapes softly around your face and around your shoulders for a couture-ready head scarf on-the-go.
If you want a unique twist on the everyday winter shawl, just loop your circle scarf over your neck and let it fall until you can see and pick up the other looped end. Then cross the circle scarf in the middle so it looks like a figure eight, and pull the second looped end over your head too. Now you can adjust the front folds for a cute double loop scarf that will have passersby stopping you to ask for scarf-wearing fashion advice.
This is probably the simplest of all ways to wear a circle scarf, but also one of the most interesting because people are used to seeing scarves with two open ends hanging down. Instead, the circle scarf has two closed ends, so your circle scarf will hang long and full down your front torso, joined at the end like an extra-long fabric necklace. This fashionable and warm look is great for formal affairs when you want to add an unusual twist to an elegant evening gown or pantsuit. And you can just loop it up over your head as a head scarf if you need to go outdoors.
