Scarves have now become the most basic addition to our daily outfits. One of the numerous origins of a scarf happened centuries ago in Rome where it was used to keep oneself clean. From a utility cloth to a fashion statement, the scarf sure has come a long way.
Many people across the globe wear scarves, ranging all the way from religious reasons to fashion statements. Scarves are a great way of accessorising, this could be done in a subtle manner or you could go all out.
Also worn for warmth and protection, there is nothing wrong in doing even that in style. With the evolution of scarves we now have a range of fabrics, sizes, patterns and colours to choose from.
Lets take a look at all the stunning and varied ways you could tie your scarves for every ocassion.
