For some people, a scarf is just a scarf. For us, a scarf is a versatile wardrobe staple that has the power to keep us warm, sure, but also can elevate an outfit or make it look just a little cooler than everyone else’s. And while tying a scarf might seem like it defies explanation, any fashion obsessive knows it’s not a one-shot deal, and that learning new ways to knot, fold, and wrap pretty much any style is absolutely possible.
