To wear a silk scarf, set out the clothes with which to wear the scarf. Styling a scarf for a casual ensemble is altogether different from wearing one for a formal evening. Drape the scarf around your neck. Let it hang evenly down your chest. Tie the scarf to tuck into an overcoat if you are wearing the scarf as a cold weather outerwear accessory. Hold each end of the scarf in one hand. Cross one side over the other. Bring that end under, then up through the loop you just created, to tie the scarf. Pull both ends gently to tighten it until it obscures your collar and tie. Tuck it into your overcoat. Leave the scarf hanging around your neck openly for a classic, formal style. Let the ends fall evenly on your chest over a buttoned tuxedo jacket or blazer. Or let the scarf hang around your neck openly under your jacket for a contemporary, less formal look. Though the look is less formal, it doesn’t mean the event you’re attending is casual. By wearing the scarf partially under the jacket, only part of the scarf is visible. This gives the impression that the ensemble is more laid-back than standard formal wear. Tie the scarf loosely, for a relaxed semi-formal or casual ensemble. Cross one end over the other. Bring that end under and then up through the loop you just created. Pull both ends gently to tighten the scarf. Leave your collar visible. Allow the scarf to rest in the middle of your chest over or under your vest, jacket or sweater. Finally, silk scarves for men can be worn to work, for business meetings, travel, special occasions or parties. They make excellent gifts for special occasions like anniversaries, birthdays, Valentine’s Day, Father’s Day and Christmas. They also make great gifts to present to the bridegroom during a wedding get-together.
