How To Tie A Scarf

I love scarves, as do many other women.  But I get tired of wearing them the same way all the time.  Lucky for me, and now you, I found a great website with chic illustrations showing some great ways to incorporate scarves into more of your outfits.  Below are some of my favorites~
Butterfly Wrap
A beautiful way of tying a scarf, accenting the elegant you. Can be sported with any outfit in your wardrobe.

Step 1 Fold the scarf using the basic fold 3.
Step 2 Let it hang around your neck with roughly one third of the scarf on one side (A) and two-thirds on the other (B) and cross these as illustrated.
Step 3 Bring A upwards to make it pass through the cross so that a sort of loop is formed.
Step 4 After tossing A underneath B, let it pass through a second loop again.
Step 5 Now when you pull one end firmly, you’ll get your butterfly wrap ready!

Casual

A lovely scarf tying style; ready in a manner of seconds. Suitable to be worn with any outfit; the minimum effort required to get this style ready is the cause of its immense popularity.

Step 1 Fold the scarf according to the basic fold 3.
Step 2 Let it dangle around your neck with one side (B) a bit shorter than the other (A).
Step 3 Take A and after crossing it over B let it pass from under B so that a sort of loop is formed.
Step 4 Bring A towards the neck again
Step 5 After letting A go around the neck, bring it down again and let it pass through the loop that was made before (in step 3).
Step 6 Your casual wrap is ready!

Crown Wrap
This is a relatively informal but stylish way to cover the head, named so because it creates a fabric crown over the head. An oblong scarf is needed for this wrap style. 

Step 1 Drape the rectangular scarf over the head off-centered so that one end hangs much farther down the body than the other.
Step 2 Gather the ends of the scarf at the nape of the neck and cross them behind the head.
Step 3 Form a rope by twisting the longer end; then lay along the front edge of the scarf approximately 1-2 inches from the edge (over the top of the head).
Step 4 Continue the twist around to meet the other, shorter, end of the scarf and knot the two ends together.
Step 5 The ends can be left loose to drape over or behind the shoulder, or may be guided along the back of the head and tucked under the scarf.
