How to Wear an Ascot

How to Wear an Ascot

Ascot, neck tie, neck scarf... whatever you want to call it, there's a million ways to wear it!

If you've never seen what I'm calling an "ascot" - it's an essential piece of retro clothing that you must familiarize yourself with!

Frock Stock has four new adorable ascots in stock. We plan to keep up the ascot trend, even after these sell out, so look forward to new prints and your favorites getting restocked if you miss out!

Delightful Dots Ascot in Yellow $9.99

Cupcake Ascot $9.99

Dijon Ascot $9.99
Delightful Dots Ascot in Navy $9.99

So how do you wear the thing? There are SO many ways - you can get as creative as you like. Here are my top three, illustrated with pictures taken from Pinterest.

#1 Under a collared shirt

This is my absolute favorite way to wear an ascot. Simply tie it under any style collar either as just a loose knot, a loose bow, or a very prim bow. It'll brighten up any plain blouse you have.

#2 Around the neck, vintage style!

This is the most retro way to wear it. You may have seen tons of photos from the 50s of girls wearing this style. Wrap the ascot around your neck twice and tie in a knot.

#3 As a hair ribbon

Charm up your hair this fall with an adorable ribbon tied around your ponytail. Just pony your hair as you normally would then tie the ascot in a bow around it!

So tell me, ladies. Do you love or hate the ascot?

How would YOU wear your ascot? Please share with our Frock Stalkers your ideas so they can have more versatility with their new ascots!

  1. I love them, they are so cute! I have never worn one, but I'm going to have to try one!

    I would probably just wear it vintage style around the neck, as I don't wear many collared shirts. Though I'm very likely to put it in my hair or maybe tie onto my bag!


  2. I love the idea to use it as a hair accessory! That is really cute!
