How to Tie a Winter Scarf Properly | Signature Cashmere

The humble scarf, a centrepiece to any winter outerwear ensemble. While it serves a practical purpose, there’s no denying that the scarf is a versatile accessory that can elevate your outfit to suit different occasions. 

At Signature Cashmere, we specialise in pashminas; from ultra fine to cable knit. You can think of pashminas as the most versatile, luxurious, and elegant of all scarves. 

Pashmina is a type of cashmere and the name given to the wool derived from the neck and under-belly of the ‘Capra Hircus’ goat that thrives in the Himalayas at altitudes above 12,000 feet. Natural cashmere fibres are extremely fine (between 10-14 microns in diameter, or 6-8 times thinner than a human hair) which gives cashmere garments an incredible warmth-to-weight ratio and is the explanation for its softness. 

Our pashminas come in a range of beautiful colours from burnt oranges to sky blues, so once you’ve chosen the complementing colour for your outfit, you just need to know how to tie your scarf.

Here are our top five ways to tie a scarf this winter, to take you from country walks to winter weddings.

  • The Classic Drape – A Timeless, Chic Way to Wear Your Favourite Scarf This Winter
  • The classic drape is a timeless way to wear your scarf with effortless elegance. You’ll see celebrities such as Reese Witherspoon with a silk scarf or pashmina draped around her neck, to add a pop of colour to her outfit. This is the perfect way to add depth and brighten up a dark, woollen winter coat.

    Simply drape the scarf evenly around your neck, letting both ends hang loose in front. This style works well with both long and oversized scarves and an array of different materials.

    Our Ultra-Fine Pashmina in Midnight Blue is the perfect candidate for the classic drape. Made with 100% pashmina, it’s exquisitely light allowing it to flow with your body.


  • The Wrap Around – The Perfect Way to Tie a Scarf for a Winter Wedding
  • The wrap around style such as here with this gorgeous Ring Pashmina in Baby Blue, is the perfect style for weddings and events this winter. Our ring pashminas are made with 100% pashmina. It’s wonderfully light and warm, made with 100% cashmere wool from the Capra Hircus goat in the Himalayan mountains. In a beautiful baby blue colourway that captures the essence of a crisp, winter morning, it’s the perfect colour to drape over the shoulders of your wedding guest gown.

    Drape the pashmina loosely around your shoulders and then drape over the other shoulder. Keeping your warm and only adding vibrance to your outfit.


  • The Parisian Knot – Bask in the Romance of The Streets of Paris This Winter
  • One of the chicest ways to tie a scarf in winter. Fold your scarf in half lengthwise and drape it around your neck, holding both ends in one hand. Then, take one end of the scarf and twist it around the other end, creating a loose knot. Adjust the knot to your desired tightness, allowing the ends to hang freely in front.

    It’s the perfect style for warmth this winter and to add a new depth, texture, and colour to your winter wear.

    Our range of classic pashmina’s are ideal for a Parisian knot style, available in a range of colours.

  • The Front Tie – A Unique Spin on How to Tie a Scarf This Winter
  • The front tie is one of our favourites at Signature Cashmere. It works seamlessly across outfits whether that’s a chic Breton-striped long-sleeved top or a thick coat. It’s not a common way to tie a scarf but once you’ve seen it, you won’t look back.

    Firstly drape the scarf evenly around your neck and let it hang. Next cross and tie the two ends in the centre, adjust so one side is over the other and give it a little fluff. Voila, perfect.

    Our Cable Knit Scarf in natural cream would look perfect tied in a front tie to prevent the chill from seeping in as you take a brisk walk through the countryside.


  •  The Faux Infinity – The Perfect Style for Your Favourite Pashmina
  • The faux infinity knot works perfectly with our pashminas. Firstly tie the two ends of your pashmina together, to create a circle. Then loop it over your head (twice), ensuring the knot is at the back of your neck. Ruffle the ends slightly to stop it looking flat.

    The faux infinity style is ideal for when you want to have your coat unbuttoned but still want to remain warm and cosy.

    Our Fuchsia Pink fringe-cut pashmina would tie perfectly into a faux infinity knot.

    There are many more unique ways to tie a scarf this winter, but they are our top five. We have a range of beautiful, unique pashminas to pair seamlessly with any outfit. All are hand made and hand dyed in our factory in Nepal.
