Over centuries the scarf has evolved from a practical garment to a fashion accessory used as much to compliment an outfit as to stay warm. The modern scarf is truly a versatile item, as evidenced by the fact that people can’t seem to break them out quick enough at the onset of the fall season. And the popularity of these accessories means there are more options and designs than ever before. Scarves come in all styles and colors, from bright crochets to leopard-print chiffon. There are scarves that border on shawls and even scarves that cover so much area around the head that they are called “snoods.”
So how does the modern scarf aficionado go about making the perfect selection to round out his or her winter wardrobe? Believe it or not there are a few apps that specialize in putting the right scarf into the hands of the right owner.

This is more of a functional app that helps people find their scarf-fashion passion. The app provides illustrative step-by-step guides on how to tie 50 different scarf knots.
