7 Ways to Style the Amaranto Scarf

The Amaranto Scarf is absolutely one of my favorite projects of the year. It’s beautiful, unique, and incredibly soft, and I’ve been getting a ton of compliments on it—even my husband, who doesn’t always notice such things, said he really liked it! Clearly, this scarf is a winner, and it’s quickly becoming one of my winter wardrobe staples.

Because I’ve been wearing it so much, I recently started looking for other ways to style it besides my go-to method of wearing it long and loose around my neck. You might think there are only, like, two ways to wear a scarf, but I’m here to tell you that the Amaranto Scarf is much more versatile than that! Here are 7 style tips to take your scarf to the next level.

1. One-Shoulder Drape

This is a basic, classic style that goes with just about any outfit and occasion, from Sunday brunch to a cocktail party. Simply center the scarf at the back of your neck, then wrap one end around your shoulders and leave the other end hanging loose.

2. Pinned In Front

To really show off Amaranto’s gorgeous colors and sawtooth edge, drape it over your shoulders and pin it in the front with shawl pin. Stylish AND warm!

3. Half-Hitch Scarf

Fold the scarf in half, wrap it around your neck, and pull the ends through the loop made at the center. Another classic scarf style, this one is practical and warm—perfect for wearing under a coat.

4. Pinned In Back

For a dressy and dramatic look, center the scarf on your chest, then have a friend pin the ends together in the back. This style works particularly well with open-back dresses like the one shown here.

5. Loose Knot In Front

Center the scarf on the back of your neck, then tie a loose knot in the front at about mid-chest. Try this look when you want to show off your knitting handiwork (or when you want to jazz up a plain top).

6. Wrapped In Front

The “loose wrap around my neck” look, created by wrapping the scarf once around your neck and leaving the ends loose, is the one I typically go for when I’m not wearing this scarf long and loose. It’s warm, cozy, and looks good with minimal effort.

7. Double Layer

This style really shows off everything that’s great about Amaranto: the yarn, the colors, and the unique pattern. With the sawtooth edge at the bottom, start with one end just barely wrapped around your left shoulder, then wrap the rest of the scarf across your chest twice, making sure that the other end of the scarf wraps around your right shoulder (it can be tricky, so you might need a friend to help you). Wear with a simple top or dress and watch the compliments roll in!
