How to Tie a Scarf into a Ladies Ascot

You'll be off to the races—or at least look like you are—when you sport this stylish scarf.


  • Step 1: Spread scarf Spread your scarf on a flat surface in the shape of a diamond.
  • Step 2: Bring bottom point up Bring the bottom point up toward the top point, placing it just above the midpoint of the scarf.
  • TIP: For best results, keep your scarf smooth and even.
  • Step 3: Fold top point down Now fold the top point down to meet the straight, closed end of the scarf.
  • Step 4: Fold bottom edge Fold once more, bringing the bottom edge in line with the two points on either side.
  • Step 5: Fold top edge Now fold the top edge down so that it lies directly along the newly formed bottom edge.
  • Step 6: Fold entire scarf Fold the entire scarf lengthwise one more time.
  • Step 7: Wrap scarf & tie Wrap the scarf around the back of your neck, bring both loose ends to the front, and tie neatly at your neck.
  • Step 8: Tie ends Take the two ends and tie them again, this time pulling them gently to create a bulky front.
  • Step 9: Knot behind head Bring the two ends behind your head, and knot.
  • Step 10: Tuck ends Tuck the ends underneath the scarf, and you're good to go.
  • FACT: The Ascot got it's name from—what else—the Royal Ascot Races held in Ascot, England.
