How To Wear A Hoodie And A Scarf Stylishly

Last Updated on February 18, 2022 by

Wearing both the hoodie and a scarf doesn’t seem a good idea because it is likely to add unnecessary bulk around your shoulder and on the neck. However, if you insist on combining both the items, we suggest you go for thin scarves such as a cashmere hoodie.

 The hood needs to hang down your back and wrap the scarf loosely around the neck to ensure the hood is partially obscured and flattened by the part of the scarf that moves behind the neck. It will look more or less like wearing a sweater and a scarf and will not be visually distracting.

Hoodies are a super cozy layer that you can combine with any outfit to look chic and comfortable. However, when you want to tie a scarf on your neck with a hood, you might get worried about adding bulk in your neck area. Regardless, you can wear a thick or bulky scarf under or around your hood for comfort and be fashionable in chilly weather.

If you love rocking your hoodie with a scarf but don’t know how to keep reading this article to get useful insights on how to combine the two casually or as functional wear.

Wearing A Scarf And Hoodie

Methods of wearing scarves on outerwear with a hood are numerous but depend on what type of model in question. As such, you can wear a scarf over or under the hoodie. In the first place, you need to understand that not all combinations of a hood with a scarf result in one image. These combined factors can add excessive volume and minimize the image’s fragility and elegance. 

One of the best options is to tie the scarf under the hoodie or put the scarf on your neck under the slightly open hoodie. The method you choose will help combine the primary function of conflicting elements; namely, they will not come with additional heat or create a massive image and will allow you to put on the hood at the right time.

 Steps To Follow When Wearing A Scarf And A Hoodie

 Wearing A Scarf And A Hoodie

Step One

 First, you have to zip your hoodie all the way and make sure your zipper is closed up to the neck. This comes in handy in keeping the heat and warmth and won’t add any bulk to the outfit. If you have a zipless hoodie, don’t worry, you can pull it on the usual way.

Step Two

After wearing your hoodie, the next set is wearing the scarf. You will fold the scarf in half. Hold the scarf in your hands and fold it in half to be loop-sided. Ensure the fold is relatively even for the scarf to look balanced

If your scarf is an infinity scarf, start by laying the scarf flat and then fold the loop in half for you to have two smaller circles. Now you can wrap the scarf around the neck with a loop on one side and drape the scarf over your neck, where the looped end will be on one side, and the hanging ends are on the other. Then you can slide the scarf around your neck and ensure it’s even on either side. If the scarf is an infinity scarf, you will pull the small loops over the neck.

Step Three

The next step is to pull the hanging ends of the scarf through the loop and then grab the dangling ends of the scarf in one hand and the looped back on the other. You will have to pull the scarf’s hanging ends to fit snugly against the neck. If the scarf is the infinity scarf, you may flatten the back part to avoid bulkiness on the neck.

You will then hang the excess ends of the scarf over your hoodie, then pull over the scarf hanging ends out over your body for them to cover the zipper of the hoodie. You have to ensure the scarf is well centered for the outfit to look even. 

If the hoodie is zipless, try to make it more even by aligning it with your pocket. For the infinity scarf, adjust the small loops to make sure they are even.

 If you have a scarf that is shorter than 2 to 3 feet long, you can tuck it into your hoodie rather than draping the ends over

Putting On The Hood To Stay Warm

Putting On The Hood To Stay Warm

You will have to pull your hood on to keep warm. So, you need to pull the hood up on the back of your head over your scarf. This will help cover your ears and the neck to ensure you retain the maximum amount of warmth in your head. If you are wearing a hat, you may not need to put the hood on if you don’t feel like it.

Wearing Bulky Scarf

When wearing a bulk scarf, you will have to zip the hoodie up all the way and put the hood up. Bulkier scarves are good when positioned outside of the hoodie to avoid adding a ton of fabric inside the hood. To wear the scarf, you have to zip up the hoodie, put the hood up, and then drape your scarf on your neck with one side longer than the other. 

Take each end of the scarf on your hands and put it over around your neck, then slide the left side of the garment downward so that it will be about twice the length of the other side, though the size must not be exact.

If you are wearing a blanket scarf, fold it twice in and slide it down to make it easy to tie, drape it over the neck.

Wearing An Image And Titled Scarf

To wear an image titled scarf, you have to wrap the longer side around the neck once. Take the left side of the scarf on end. Pull the scarf up and surround your right shoulder, and then back down to the left shoulder for the scarf to wrap around the neck. 

You will have to throw the scarf over the shoulder so that it can reach your other side; from there, you may adjust the hanging side to be even. Then you have to tug on each side of the garment. Ensure the area that touches the neck is not very tight and is comfortable. Make sure the title or the image fits in the center.

Remember to remove your scarf before taking off the hood to avoid the hoodie getting stuck.

It’s advisable to try to match the material of your scarf to the season. Wool flannel and knit scarves came in hardy during winter when temperatures are low. Silk and other lightweight scarves are great accessories for summer and springtime. It’s possible to wear a scarf all year round so long as you consider the weather outside.


Wearing a hoodie and scarf can be cumbersome, but they can make a big difference in maintaining body heat during cold weather. There are numerous ways to wear a hoodie and scarf; the choice depends on the scarf’s type and the weather. Scarves are made from different materials; the choice again will depend on the prevailing weather. Heavy-duty scarves are excellent in cold weather, while lighter ones are good in the summer and spring.
