Fashion Design Scarf TrendsWearing a scarf is certainly nothing new in the fashion world, but this year, a variety of interesting ways to wear scarves are rising to popularity, as are different lengths, prints and materials to choose from. Here are just a few of trendy ways to incorporate scarves into your daily look.

Knit for Men and Women: Both men and women who want to wear scarves to combat cool weather should consider embracing the stylish longer scarves entering popular fashion. When paired with a chunky knit sweater or a military jacket, a scarf with nautical stripes can be an ideal choice for your ensemble.

Classic for Men: Of course, the classic look will remain fashionable for men in formal attire. Paired with a black or tan coat, a solid scarf in a dark shade can look wonderful. Err on the side of caution with these scarves, and choose one that is neutral to avoid clashing colors with your sweater, coat, belt or even shoes.

Snoods for Women: A snood is a new fashion trend that is replacing the longer-hanging ends of scarves, but will still look fashionable and keep the neck and chest warm. The snood is made of the same material that any other scarf might be, but it is one piece of material to slip over the head, and has no loose ends. Feel free to get creative with the colors of your snood just as you might with a scarf, and treat it the same way in your fashion choices.

Fur for Women: Many designers showcased fur scarves in their 2012 collections. Don't limit yourself to wearing them with formal wear—feel free to slip on a fur scarf with even a casual daytime outfit. Those who prefer not to wear fur can pick out a faux fur alternative.
