3 Ways To Style a Handmade Scarf

I’m the type of person who will crochet you a scarf for Christmas if I notice that you wear them. Contrary to the stereotype, not only old ladies make scarves! I’ve been crocheting since I was a kid and I still love doing it. Scarves are an easy go-to project, and with winter right around the corner, wearing scarves is not only practical, but stylish.

In today’s post, I’m going to show you three ways to style that homemade scarf you got for Christmas last year. Trust me, even the ugly ones can end up looking good.


Keep it Cozy with Light Colors and Layers

This layered look features an infinity scarf that I made myself last year. Its neutral color makes it easy to add to so many different outfits. Plus, because it wraps around twice, that means extra warmth from the cold. Not to pick favorites, but this is my favorite scarf to date.


Give a Tacky Scarf New Life

I received this scarf as a Christmas present from my dad’s girlfriend’s mom several years ago, and to be honest it’s been sitting in my collection since then. Not wanting to get rid of it, the only thing I could think to do is make it tackier by pairing it with this fun Nickelodeon tie-dye shirt. The blues match perfectly. While I would prefer some higher waisted jeans, these do the trick for now. But in all honesty, the socks with sandals look ties this outfit together.

Add a Pop of Color

The scarf in this final look is made of one of my favorite yarns ever. The color adds just the right amount of pop to a black and grey outfit, and the texture dresses it up ever so slightly. Because of its cute design and fluffy material, you can’t see that I did a crappy job crocheting it. :)


I hope you enjoyed my styling of this holiday classic. Handmade scarves have been a staple in my house for as long as I can remember. This year, I have already started work on two, which you will probably see on this blog at some point. This week’s temperatures seem to just keep dropping up here in the northeast, so don’t forget to bundle up, in style of course.
