How to wear a scarf: way #7 is to wear the scarf draped over one shoulder. One-shoulder looks remain popular, but you don't have to bare a shoulder in cool weather to create an asymmetrical one-shoulder look.

To create this style, drape a scarf over one shoulder and secure it at the shoulder seam with a tiny safety pin, fashion tape, or a few hand tacking stitches that can be removed easily. An alternative way to secure the scarf is with a brooch in the front. Because brooches usually leave pinholes in delicate fabric, only use this method with loose-weave scarves so that pinholes won't show in the scarf's fabric.

For a bolder one-shoulder look, use a square scarf folded diagonally, draping one point in back, one point in front, and the third point over the arm. This is a good way for short women to wear a limited amount of pattern by choosing a colorful print scarf worn with a dark solid dress or jacket.
