Like I mentioned in my first post, infinity scarves are my latest obsession, so it’s only perfect that I found this Hoosier Fashionisto rocking his own infinity scarf that he got from his hometown in Taiwan. In the past, lots of men viewed scarves as protection from the elements and not necessarily as an accessory, but now, with the ease of an infinity scarf, it’s mixing more and more into men’s everyday style.
Infinity scarves, which are also known as eternity scarves, loops scarves or circle scarves, are continuous loops of fabric that have no end. These loops come in different lengths, allowing you to wrap it around your neck as many times as you please. You can also pull it up over your head to cover your ears if it’s cold. It’s actually even easier than a regular scarf because you don’t need to worry about it coming untied. It’s as simple as throwing it over your head, twisting it and putting it over your head once more. So how does a guy pull off an infinity scarf? For a warmer, cozier look and more protection from the weather, try a chunky knit style like the one this Fashionisto is rocking. Here he pairs his monochromatic gray scarf with colored chinos, but if you want to keep it slightly more casual, you can also pair it with a plaid button-down and jeans. If you’re looking for a lighter weight piece, try a thinner, cotton scarf with a crewneck sweater and skinnies for a dressier look.
Pair infinity scarves with some of your lighter weight fall and spring clothing to bring more versatility into your wardrobe. Layering is always chic, especially when traveling across campus from class to class. Infinity scarves provide that extra warmth and style combo that you can continue wearing during class even after you take your coat off.
Hint: Choosing colored or patterned scarves for your look can make a neutral outfit complete with that little extra detail, but be wary of overwhelming yourself in too many patterns and colors.
