Italian Fashion - How to Tie Your Scarf

Pauline Kenny

Some people say that I never notice fashion. And they are correct. But on this trip, I noticed how Italians tie their winter scarves. From my two weeks of observing, in Rome and Naples, I would say 50% of the population tie their scarf as follows.

  • Take one long rectangular scarf and fold in half so the length is half what it was to start.
  • Wrap this half scarf around your neck so both ends hang down in front.
  • In front put the two loose ends through the loop of the folded end.
  • Tighten up to your neck.

This produces a very neat looking scarf that does not have long ends that blow in the wind and has two layers at the neck to keep you warm. Very sensible and fashionable. I am wearing my scarf like this - but I will not be wearing those very pointy shoes.
