Get your summer scarf on with a sexy, fashionable crepe scarf. No, not like birthday decorations or the French pancake. Think soft, silky fabrics and oh-so-bold patterns to enhance any outfit in your wardrobe. And guess what -- you don't even have to settle on wearing it the same way every day. You can tie a crepe scarf in tons of different ways, taking any look from drab to fab in five minutes.


Simplify it with the tried and true look; the simple, loose slipknot. Start by tying a super loose knot about a third of the way up from one end. Drape that baby around your neck and pull the other end of the scarf through the knot so the ends are relatively even.


Running out the door and don't have time for a knot? Well, you're in luck. Fold the scarf in half and drape it around your neck. Pull the ends of the scarf through the loop on the other side and tighten around your neck.


Get your baby-doll look on with an elegant bow. Drape the scarf around your neck so the ends are hanging down across your chest evenly. OK, this is just like tying your shoelaces, girls. Tie a single knot first, then loop it into a bow. But don't stop there! Spread the scarf loops apart so they are poofed.


If you're feeling preppy, try a sexy ascot that you can tuck into your favorite blouse. Drape the scarf around your neck, but with the ends hanging down at your backside. Cross the ends and pull them forward so they hang over your chest. Cross the ends again and tie into a single knot. Pull one end over the other and fluff it out so that it covers the end beneath it. Tuck the ends into a collared blouse and show off your preppy look.


Who says scarves are only neck candy? Try tying your crepe scarf into a sleek head wrap. Spread your scarf over a flat surface and fold it in half to make a triangle. Wrap the triangle around your head and tie the ends into a knot at the base of your skull. Tuck in any flaps and you're ready to go.
