Beat The Hong Kong Cold: The Warmest Ways To Tie A Scarf This Winter

Beat The Hong Kong Cold: The Warmest Ways To Tie A Scarf This Winter | Goxip

Despite what people say about Hong Kong being one of the humid all year round, this winter we’ve been experiencing much colder weather than usual and the bad news is, we’re just entering January which means it’s only about to get worse.

As the nights draw in, the clocks go back and the chill in the air is unquestionable, scarves become a necessary daily accessory. From oversized blanket scarves to chic neck ties and silk shawls, there's sure to be a style to slot into your new season wardrobe. Here’s our top picks on the market and how to style them.

Draped Around Your Neck

Warmth: ★

For a cool monochromatic look, blend your scarf with your ensemble and wear it loose around the neck.

Tied Once

Warmth: ★ ★ ★

For extra warmth tie your scarf loosely once around your neck. It’s best to go for a thicker scarf which will keep you cozy. Extra points for a colourful style that will brighten up your winter coat.

As A Coller

Warmth: ★ ★ ★

For this look, tie the ends of both sides of the neck scarf to form a large circle, and then wrap it around the neck twice. Since the neck is well wrapped, it’ll keep your neck nice and snuggly, not letting any cold air in.

Go Cowboy

Warmth: ★ ★

As the name suggests, the tail of the neck scarf points into a triangular square at the bottom. There are two ways to tie it. The first is to use a square neck scarf diagonally to form a triangle and then wear; the second is to wear the neck scarf with a single loop and tuck the tail on one side, and pull it into a triangle on the other side to form a small corner. This isn't necessarily the warmest idea, but it certainly is chic.

The Front Tie

For this look, drape the scarf evenly around your neck and let it hang and then cross and tie the two ends in the centre. Adjust so that one is layered over the other, and fluff.
