Scarves can add a charm to a man's look if knotted the right way, say experts.

Aditya S Sanghi, CEO at Sundarams and Karan Ahuja, director at Ahujasons, suggests ways in which men can style a simple scarf to pep up their attire.

» Drape: Simply drape the scarf over the neck and the front of your chest under the blazer lapels. No actual tying happens in this one, so it's a loose way of wearing a scarf meant more for ornamentation.

Traditional silk scarves are nearly always worn under the lapel. Since little of the scarf is visible, you can afford to be bold by using contrasting hues or patterns.

» Fake: Hang the scarf around your neck with one end being twice as long as the other. Tie a loose over hand knot near the end of the shorter side leaving about 15 inches at the end. Tug the knot apart slightly and slip the other end straight through & tighten to the desired length.

» French: Also called the European knot, it is a fast and easy way to tie a scarf. Just fold the scarf in half at the middle so that the ends touch and hold the doubled over bend in one hand, while passing the loose ends around the back of your neck with the other. Tuck the ends through the bend and pull snug.

» Ascot:
Simple yet a versatile knot. Take the scarf and lay it over your shoulders. Take both ends of the scarf, and tie them over-and-under as if you were starting to do up a giant pair of shoelaces.

Adjust the front to be a bit smooth and tighten closer to the neck as desired for a much more bohemian look.
