I’m a sucker for a good scarf. And trust me, I have plenty (more than I know what to do with, frankly). I usually do a quick head-wrap with a favorite scarf of mine when I'm on the go, or I will throw one around my neck to keep me toasty when the weather is frightful.
Now, I don't actually buy a ton of scarves. I’m all about “reduce, reuse, recycle” here. I have been pretty grateful to know people who work in textiles who have given me samples, and I get hand-me-downs from family and Goodwill alike. So friends, family, and thrift stores have me covered on “reduce” and “reuse”, and Ichcha is where “recycle” comes in. All of their scarves are both handmade and created from reusing waste material. They also come in a variety of bold and bright patterns, making them the perfect accessory during the gray winter months.
Below are a few super easy go-to ways to style your scarves, no matter the weather — modeled by yours truly.
I love this style because it basically turns your scarf into a chic fabric necklace. Just start with the scarf around your neck, with the ends on your front side, and pull the scarf so it's longer on your right side. Then wrap the scarf towards your left until you run out of fabric, and tuck the ends into your loop. Easy as pie!
This is a new one I recently tried and fell in love with once I got my Ichcha scarf. A long scarf made out of thinner material is best for this style, just so you don't have too much weight on your head.
You'll start out much like you did with the Loop-Di-Loop, except the scarf should be against the base of your head. Make sure the scarf is even and the lengths on both sides are the same. Wrap the scarf towards the front of your head, twist, and then wrap the scarf back again. Then tie it in a knot and tuck away any extra ends. I like to keep my ears tucked under the scarf when it's cold, but that choice is up to you. This is an easy one to put your own spin on, too, depending on the scarf you're using.
The Classic Wrap
This one is surely familiar to everyone. It's the easiest way to wear a scarf and elevate your outfit all at once. You just start out the same as the other two styles, but there's no extra tucking-- once you've wrapped the scarf around once, you let the ends stay where they are. Quick and easy!
