Reader’s question: “If I’m purchasing a scarf for the average shape – what is the most versatile shape – square, rectangle or infinity?”
What is the Most Versatile Shape
Scarves make great accessories. There are so many ways to tie a scarf it makes them an incredibly versatile accessory.
Not only that, you can so easily use your scarf colours as a guide to creating the colour scheme for your outfit (as I wrote about in this post).
It’s easy to pull out the colours in a scarf and wear them in your outfit. You can wear a scarf as a belt if it’s just too hot to wear it around your neck. Or why not tie a small square scarf around your wrist as a bracelet?
As there are just so many ways to tie a scarf I’ve found some videos to share packed full of great ideas for you to try. These videos are some of my favourites as they show a range of ways to tie them along with different shapes and sizes of scarf.

Love the first photo where you’ve pulled out the colors from your scarf.
Should the way you tie a scarf be determined by your face shape? I have an oblong face and wonder if I should try to create a V shape and not tie a scarf too close to my chin. I do have a long neck.
Shorter neck would be better with a looser or longer knot. Other than that it’s up to youy
I am just imagining to wear a scarf as belt or on my wrist. Anyways good sharing, i enjoy the video.
