Not for "fashion shows":

“We determined that soldiers will be allowed to wear scarves during the winter months; we will not accept a situation whereby soldiers wear short-sleeved shirts and scarves as if they are participating in a fashion show,” an IDF official told Ynet.

It was also determined that soldiers will wear only black-colored scarves; embroideries of any kind are forbidden.
