How To Wear A Silk Scarf, Featuring Styles From Chanel, Hermès and Loewe
There’s something unquestionably timeless about a silk scarf. It is the kind of accessory that transcends generations. Whether it’s thrown around your neck, tied to a handbag or draped over the shoulders, silk scarves have the instant ability to make anything look, well, just chicer. Set to be the most versatile item in your closet, whichever way you choose to style it, one thing is clear: It's time to pull our scarves out from the back of our wardrobes and start wearing them once again. Keep scrolling for four fresh ways to wear a silk scarf this season.
As A Headscarf
For those looking to up their ponytail game, a loosely-tied scarf around a low pony that hits at the nape of the neck is the ultimate in low-key elegance.
Both Loewe and Gucci offer baby silk scarves that are the perfect size to use as a headdress. Go bold with a logo-patterned style.
Make like Dua Lipa and jump on the bandana trend and choose an oversized silk square in a chic print and fold it diagonally in half, and tie it over your hair tucking the centre corner inside.
Tied Around The Neck
Tied around your neck is one of the most classic ways to wear a silk scarf. Simply wrap your silk scarf around your neck, let it drape down your chest, and loosely tie the leftover strands into a delicate knot at the bottom. Switch up your styling options by adjusting the lengths of the ties.
To create the look of a choker, fold your silk scarf into a triangle then roll it up. Wrap it around your neck, crossing the ends behind, and tie a gentle knot beneath the chin. Adjust the scarf to the left or right and leave the long strands to hang.
As A Belt
Tieing a silk scarf loosely around your waist might just be the easiest way to upgrade your favourite pair of off-duty denim. Team with a transitional trench and a basic white T-shirt and you have yourself a no-fail outfit that will work for any occasion.
For a more discreet look, you can also choose to simply tie your scarf around a single belt loop, leaving the ends untied to add a relaxed yet polished finish to everyday looks.
As A Bag Ascent
A silk scarf can also be used to bring a vintage-looking feel to your favourite handbag. Simply twist your scarf around the handle of your bag, then tie the excess ends into a bow or knot for an elevated update.
