Oh, the v-neck! Only this versatile neckline can complete comfy-casual Saturday morning attire and transform into an edgy, ready-for-anything ensemble at night. If your wardrobe is just a smidge like ours, you likely have a drawer dedicated entirely to this wear-with-everything wonder.
To make the most of this staple piece, we’ve perfected the art of pairing it with (you guessed it!) scarves. Last fall, we introduced the Four-in-Hand as our go-to scarf knot for the v-neck — but since then, we’ve added a few more styles to our knot rotation.
Skim through our most v-neck-worthy knots, and find a look that complements your style — and your vast collection of v-necks!
When it comes to v-neck styling, nearly any scarf will do — which means it’s all about personal preference. These are the scarves we want, need, and love:

Recently, our Mya scarf was featured in the March issue of Redbook Magazine. Not only did she get a feature, but this leading lady stole the show in not one, not two, but sixteen different scarf looks!
We are over the moon about Mya’s big magazine debut, which inspired us to style her with a couple closet confections of our very own. Whether you’re getting all gussied up this spring, or looking to liven up your casual wear, take a fashion cue (or two!) from our lovely Scarves Dot Net editors — including our gorgeous COO, Angie!
Have you fallen head over heels for the Mya, too? Grab her in every hue here!

When it comes to springtime, you can always expect a few things — like drizzly rainstorms, buoyant moods, and nautical-inspired fashions. What better way to express the arrival of spring than with a few nautical scarf knots? We’ve rounded up some sailor scarf styles to help you sail towards warm weather and those delicious park picnics. ;)
How to tie the Angler’s Knot:
- With a long rectangle scarf, start by placing the scarf on the back of your neck.
- Bring both sides of the scarf around the front of your neck, and criss-cross them across your chest towards your back again.
- Then, you will cross-cross the scarf across the back of your neck once more.
- By now, the criss-crossed scarf at the front of your neck has formed two “loops.” Pull one of the loops next to your neck down a bit to loosen it up, and slip the closest end of the scarf through, letting the remainder of the scarf hang down your chest.
- Repeat the same on the other side, and you’ve got the “Angler’s Knot!”
How to tie the Mermaid Loop:
- You’ll need two scarves for the “Mermaid Loop.”
- With your base scarf, fold it in half horizontally, and place the scarf around the back of your neck with a loop on one side.
- Pull one of the ends through the loop, twist the loop, and pull the other side through as well. (Similar to the Four-in-Hand.)
- Then, place an infinity scarf on top, and you’re good to go!
How to tie the Fisherman’s Coil:
- For those days when you don’t want the ends of your scarf billowing in the salty sea breeze, the “Fisherman’s Coil” is the perfect scarf knot. Center a lightweight scarf at the back of your neck, and let the ends hang down the front of your chest.
- Loop the scarf once around your neck, so that the loop drapes near the center of your chest.
- Starting on one side, wrap one end of the scarf around the loop. Go around and around until you reach the end, and tuck it in.
- Repeat for the other side. You should have a coil-like result!
How to tie the Double Monkey Fist:
- And finally, a sophisticated knot with a quirky name. To tie the “Double Monkey Fist,” you will need an infinity scarf.
- Start by placing it around your neck, and letting it hang down the front of you.
- Then, make a simple knot near your neck (as if you’re wearing a tie!).
- With the remainder of the dangling scarf, tie up another knot. That’s it!

Hey there, lady leprechauns! St. Patty’s Day is one of our favorite holidays, not only for the all-day festivals, corn beef and cabbage, and warmer weather, but for the green fashions, too! There’s nothing more cheerful than wrapping a shamrock-hued scarf around your neck — which is why we’re happy to announce the release of our St. Patrick’s Day Collection!
Specially chosen by our Erin go bragh editors, we’ve picked a bevy of greens (to keep pinches at bay), golds (for that pot at the end of the rainbow), and oranges (to honor ye olde Irish flag) for each and every Irish-lovin’ gal. So grab one – or a few for mixing and matching — and cheers to a gloriously sunny day full of good friends, green beer, and grand memories.
