While it's not yet cold enough to envelop our necks in huge sheaths of fabric, simply draping a scarf around yourself will keep you warm and stylish. There are various ways to tie a scarf and one of them is to wear it with a belt. Learn the runway belted scarf trick right here.

To sport it, ensure you don't go for chunky knit scraf or thick belts. Some tips on how to pull off the look:

1 Don't go too bulky: A chunky knit scarf won't do. Instead, wear one that's made of silk or lightweight cotton.

2 Do use a thin belt: The size of the belt depends on the weight of the scarf (the thicker the material, the thicker the belt). However, a thinner belt looks better than a hefty metal buckle.

3 Don't cinch too high: The belt should fit around your natural waist. Tie it too high and you'll have way too much fabric floating around.

4 Don't ignore the hem: Movement in the scarf is key. Stay away from styles with a blunt hem and opt for fringe or a slanted edge.

5 Do pay attention to length: Make sure the scarf hits just above your kneecaps.

6 Don't shy away from layers: Sure, wearing a scarf over a dress is the ideal combination. But adding a blazer or a cardigan looks equally as chic.
