With cold and wet weather on the way, we thought it was ample time for a refresher course on how to wear those gorgeous cashmere scarves of yours. In our popular YouTube video, Charlotte demonstrates 10 unique styles with five of our cashmere pashmina scarves. After you watch the video, get a quick run-down of the steps for each style below, plus links to the designs featured.

The Classic (featuring Camellia): Hold scarf out in full and swing it around to drape over your shoulders so that one side is longer than the other. Grab the longer end and toss it over your opposite shoulder. For a variation, grab the shorter end and tuck it under the center drape.

The Cowl Neck (featuring Camellia): Bunch the scarf in your fists and drape it around your neck so one side is longer than the other. Loop the longer end loosely around your neck. Pull the longer end over and under the shorter end and tie in half knot. To make the knot disappear, pull the half knot tighter and tuck the knot under the loop.

The Tail Feather (featuring Wings): Hold scarf out in full and swing it around to drape over your shoulders, making sure both sides are even. Fold the scarf under around your the neck to decrease its length. Take each end in each hand and guide them to your back. Tie the ends in a half knot.

The Sojourner (featuring Wings): Hold scarf out in full and swing it around to drape over your shoulders so that one side is longer than the other. Grab the inner corner of the longer side and pull it around your neck. Take the inner corner of the other side and tie both ends in a half knot over your shoulder.

The Dickie (featuring Catstooth 1): Fold scarf in half lengthwise then fold down one top corner – the scarf should be in the shape of two triangles. Drape it around your front and tie the ends in a half knot behind your neck. Pull to tighten the knot, and adjust the scarf so that it drapes over your shoulders.

The Infinity (featuring Catstooth 1): Hold the scarf in your fists so that you are grabbing the ends. Tie the ends in a full knot behind your neck. Loop the scarf around your neck a second time.

The Tunic (featuring Diamond Bird): Grab the the inner corner of each end of the scarf and tie the corners in a full knot behind your neck. Loop the scarf loosely around your neck a second time. Adjust the second loop so that the scarf’s fringes or designs are on top. For a variation, pull the folds of the scarf around your shoulder so it drapes over each.

The Romantic (featuring Diamond Bird): Fold scarf in half lengthwise then fold down one top corner – the scarf should be in the shape of two triangles. Swing it around to drape over your shoulders. Pull one side further around so the ends meet on the opposite shoulder. Unfold the scarf along the back so it drape fully over this shoulder. Grab both ends and tie in a knot. Position the scarf off the opposite shoulder.

The Western (featuring School): Bunch the scarf in your fists and drape it around your neck so that one side is much longer. Loop the longer end around your neck (you can loop twice if needed). Take the inner corner of the longer end, pull it around the opposite shoulder, and tuck it under the folds behind your neck. Take the inner corner of the other end, pull it around the opposite shoulder and tuck.

The Capelet (featuring School): Bunch the scarf in your fists and drape it around your neck so that one end is a bit longer. Loop the longer end around your neck. Pull the loop away from your neck so there is some space. Swing the right end over the left and through the loop. Adjust so that both ends are now of even length. Take the inside corners of both ends and tie in a knot. Pull the knot over your head and adjust the scarf so it drapes over your shoulders.
