4 Ways to Style a Scarf in Warm Weather
Dudes. Scarves are not just for winter. They are legit style pieces that add texture and personality to any outfit while protecting ya neck from spring’s surprise gusts. And just like you wouldn’t wear a collared tee without a preppy pop or a pair of jeans without a slight sag, there are ways a scarf should be styled for maximum flair. Think: Beckham, Pitt, Kutcher and now YOU, among the ranks of bros with serious scarf-wearing skills once you’re done with this tutorial.
We’re leading off with the most rugged way to wear a scarf, a perfect option over cozy spring layers or a casual tee. Just think: loop and tuck: be sure to pull both ends completely out from under so that it looks perfectly undone.
THE EVERYDAY DUDE SCARF
Yep, nailed it!
You’re a rule-breaker, bro. Scarf stay around the neck? Nah, not happening. Utilize the width of your layer and pull the sides of your scarf out wide as you wrap it around your neck and tie it off. Finish by untucking all that extra fabric so that it falls over one shoulder. Consider it a long-sleeved tee companion that looks great with a newsboy cap.
The MAN CAPE
Dapper drama at its finest.
Even if you can barely lift a finger over this scarf business, you can still look like a dapper dude. Just drape your scarf over your shoulders so that the ends fall at the same length and slip on a blazer.
THE LAZY GUY SCARF
Suit and tie, Mr. Timberlake? I think you misspoke.
Up your office-wear game with this next scarf look, which pairs perfectly with your favorite button-down. It’s so easy: just half the scarf, sling it around your neck and loosely pull the ends through for just the right amount of effortless charm.
THE WEAR-TO-WORK SCARF
Casual Fridays just got a whole lot cooler.
Back in January, we introduced you to a feel-good cause to inspire your New Year's resolution: a walking challenge to help raise funds for the amazing cancer fighters at The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. I took part in the challenge with the Brit + Co team and ended up walking 105+ miles in January — it was awesome.
This spring, there's a new challenge on the horizon, The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's Big Climb. The ask: On May 15, 2021, you can step up to take cancer down by committing to climb 1,311 steps, walking 3.2 miles, or doing 440 chair step-ups at home as part of the Big Climb. If you need some motivation to bring movement back into your daily routine — look no further!
As always, it's free to sign up, but climbers are encouraged to set a fundraising goal to help beat cancer. We'll be organizing another Brit + Co team to step up, and I hope you'll join us too! Keep scrolling for a peek at where I'll be completing the challenge in my Los Angeles neighborhood around the hidden Silver Lake Stairs. Happy climbing!
Never underestimate the power of an accountability buddy! I asked my in-laws, my partner, and a few friends to join me so we can keep each other motivated and accountable in completing the challenge — virtual high-fives all around! Also, my dog Fox is a great climber, too.
An aesthetically pleasing backdrop is a huge motivator for me! I'm fortunate to have all sorts of painted steps around my neighborhood to keep the challenge interesting, but you can also keep cool inside with at-home chair step-ups.
Don't forget to share your progress on social — #BigClimb!
Feel free to break the challenge up if you need to by tackling half the distance in the AM and half at sunset. Here's me 1,311 steps later and ready for a break — but, think I earned this one!
