Ways to Wear an Infinity Scarf
There are an infinite number of ways to style an infinity scarf (no pun intended!). Here are 15 ways to wear this must-have summer accessory, which one is your favorite?
1. Basic Infinity Scarf
The most basic way to wear an infinity scarf is to simply put your head through the loop. While this is the traditional way of rocking an infinity scarf, it looks just as unique and stylish worn this way as it does worn any other way. Whether you style it with a pair of denim shorts and sandals, a flirty summer dress, or even over top your bathing suit, you’re ready to make a fashionable statement at the next beach barbecue!
2. Double Loop
For an extra “wow” factor, double loop the scarf around your neck. This gives the appearance of wearing two separate scarves and looks simply chic with any outfit. Opt for a textured or patterned scarf for this option to really bump up the style factor. Wondering how to achieve this look? Simply place the scarf around your neck, twist it, and loop it over your head once.
Bundle up if it gets cold at night by wearing your infinity scarf in a capelet style. This is similar to a shawl style, but it covers more of your shoulders and keeps you snugger when the weather cools down. To achieve, loop the scarf around your neck, twist it to form an ‘X’ shape, pull it toward your neck, and spread out the material so that it covers your shoulders entirely. Without a doubt, this style is tres chic and sure to result in compliments.
While temperatures during the warm summer days may rise, it’s no secret that things tend to cool down come nighttime, and an infinity scarf is perfect for keeping warm on those chilly summer nights. Transform your daytime looped scarf into a cozy summer shawl by simply wrapping the scarf around your shoulders and spreading the fabric out until it covers your shoulders, elbows, and upper back. Depending on how long and thick your infinity scarf is, you’ll be left with varying levels of shawl thickness, but no matter what, you’ll look extra stylish and fashion-forward with this style.
5. Hooded Shawl
Love the shawl style but need something to cover your head? Turn your shawl into a hooded one just by pulling up the back of it over your neck and onto your head. This is especially handy if you’re wearing a bigger infinity scarf, as there’s more material to wrap around your neck as a shawl and on your head as a hood. This way of wearing an infinity scarf can give off any style you want depending on the other clothes and accessories you wear with it. From Parisian chic to edgy rock star, you’ll look fierce no matter what look you’re going for. A striped or other patterned infinity scarf would look best in this style, as spreading out the fabric can really show off the scarf’s intricate detailing and pattern.
6. Off the Shoulder Shawl
Show off those bronzed sexy shoulders by wearing your infinity scarf off the shoulder. Simply place the scarf around your neck, pull it down until it reaches your shoulders, and make a knot in the center of the scarf. This is perfect for wearing to a more formal event as it offers a touch of ladylike elegance that no other accessory can master. Opt for a solid-colored infinity scarf for this style for a polished and sophisticated look.
7. Bathing Suit Cover Up
Without a doubt, summer season calls for days by the pool or beach, and a stylish infinity scarf that can be worn as a bathing suit cover up is a definite must for the season. Opt for one with a bright color such as turquoise, lilac, or pink to truly feel the summer vibe. Patterned infinity scarves that feature flowers screams summer and would work great for this type of style. Best part? Once things start to cool down, your bathing suit cover-up can be transformed into a shawl, hooded shawl or shrug if needed!
If your infinity scarf is long enough, you can tie it as a sarong for an extra fashion-forward beach cover up. To take things a step further, use a skinny belt to cinch and accentuate your waistline and keep the scarf in place. Tie-dye and multicolored patterns look especially striking with this style, as do bright solid colors and neutrals. Your tropical beach vacation awaits you!
9. Double Up
Double up your infinity scarf styling and wrap two lightweight, thin scarves around your neck. You can use a longer one to drape lower and a shorter one to fall higher. The motto “the more the merrier” certainly rings true when it comes to this style, as you can play up the colors and patterns and make a unique double infinity scarf of your own.
Looking for a lightweight alternative to a cardigan? Turn your infinity scarf into a shrug and wear it over your favorite summer dress, with a colorful tank top, or to complement a strapless top. Perfect for adding a dash of sophistication and femininity to any summer outfit, wearing your infinity scarf as a shrug gives off a polished yet stylish look.
Give your outfit a bit of an edge with an infinity scarf vest. This works well with a fringed scarf, a knit scarf, or even a cotton scarf. To achieve, simply stick one of your arms into the loop, pull it over your shoulder, bring it toward the front and stick your other arm into the loop. And to give the outfit more of a silhouette and shape, add a belt around your waist. Whether you have a knit scarf or a cotton one, this style is perfect for looking fashionable during the summer season.
If you love the look of an infinity scarf but crave the appearance of a traditional scarf, you can always turn your infinity scarf into a regular one by holding either side of the scarf in each hand and placing the whole scarf around your neck folded (without putting your head through the loop of the scarf). This will give the look of a regular scarf, but it’ll be your little secret that it’s actually an infinity scar.
13. Triple Loop Infinity Scarf Cool summer nights call for a warmer fashion ensemble, and an infinity scarf is the best option. For more of a turtle neck look, triple loop the infinity scarf around your neck and enjoy a warm and snug summer look.
With so many colorful and vibrant scarf options for summer, it’s no secret that owning at least one infinity scarf is a must for the warm weather season. Whether your summer consists of non-stop traveling or lazy days by the water, you’ll need an infinity scarf to tie your whole outfit together and add an extra dose of style to your ensembles. There are so many different ways to wear an infinity scarf; don’t be afraid of testing out your own unique variations!
