These accessories are not just for keeping your neck warm in the cold winter months. A pretty scarf can take
your look from something simple to something extraordinary with just a few wraps around the neck.

may be just the piece you're looking for. These lightweight fashion accessories offer a beautiful flowing movement.
Many colors and designs are available for you to choose from...so many that you're sure to find one or two that can
go with just about any outfit you own!
You don't have to wear them only around your neck. There are many ways in which to dress your body
- > You can wrap them around your head
- > Wear them as shawls, put them around your waist as a belt
- > You can form them into a shape you want and attach them to your clothing with a pretty pin or broach,
If you're wearing them in the traditional way around the neck, you may simply wrap it around the back of the neck
and let the two pieces hang in front, or you might want to tie them
Tying a scarf is pretty simple.
There are a couple of different simple knots you're able to use:
- > One easy way to tie your scarf, is to make a loose knot in one end, drape the scarf around your neck,
put the end without the knot through the knot you've made and pull the ends making both sides even
- > Another way is to fold the scarf in two, wrap it around the back of the neck and put the two ends through
the loop on the other end.
You can also make bows, in much the same way you would tie your shoes. Once you've made the bow, just adjust
the ends and spread the bow so that it's sitting how you wish it to sit.
There is no right or wrong way to wear these fashion accessories. No matter where you choose to put it,
tie it, or drape it, you can be sure it's going to look great!
