We’re taking some cues from Elizabeth Taylor and Audrey Hepburn and are featuring the silk scarf. There’s something so rich and fancy about silk, and having it as a scarf gives you many options for styling.
Keep scrolling for some of our go-to ways for wearing a silk scarf!
BIG BOW TIE
It’s as easy as it looks! There’s no folding required. After tying your hair in a messy bun take you silk scarf and make one knot at the top of your bun making sure both ends of the scarf are equal lengths. Now you can tie your bow and make it as big as you want!
TOP KNOT STYLE
Drawing inspiration from “Rosie the Riveter” the top knot headband allows you to keep your hair down while it being away from your face.
Take your scarf and fold it halfway into a triangle. Start with the widest end and fold it onto itself until you it becomes one slender strip. After folding, place it under your hair so that both ends are in each hand. Make two knots. Tuck the remainder of the scarf under the headband.
LOW KNOT STYLE
This headband is perfect for the days when you really want to show off your scarf (like this cheetah print below)!
Take your scarf and fold it halfway into a triangle. Start with the widest end and fold it onto itself until you it becomes one slender strip. Wrap the scarf around your head and tie it twice under your bun.
PONY TAIL KNOT
Classy and effortless is what we like to call the pony tail knot. When you’re looking to tie your outfit together, adding a silk scarf to your pony tail can really do the trick. Simply take your unfolded scarf and tie tightly on top of your pony tail!
NECK TIE KNOT
Using your silk scarf as a neck tie instantly gives any sweater, shirt, or blouse some extra pizzaz! Merely place your silk scarf around your neck and knot it loosely for a relaxed look. Depending on your neckline you can wear it off-centered as we did here, or in the middle.
The more dressy of the two, this style wraps around your neck almost like a choker.
Take your scarf and fold it halfway into a triangle. Start with the widest end and fold it onto itself until it becomes one slender strip. Begin wrapping your scarf by having the ends of the scarf facing your back. Keep wrapping until you can tie both ends in the front (as pictured below).
FRENCH BRAID TIE
This tie is girly with an artsy flare! Gather your hair for a french braid and knot the silk scarf around the middle section of hair. Braid all the way to the end treating the silk scarf as one of the three sections.
