We love adding versatile pieces to our wardrobe. A tried and tested accessory that can completely transform a look is a definite must buy! Yet rarely do accessories last through the ages and styles quite like a silk scarf. Made famous by some of the most beautiful women in the world, and reminiscent of the cinema sirens of the golden age, we adore this simple piece of fabric that is capable of making such huge statement!
How to wear this classic piece with a modern twist? Let’s take a look at our favorite styles:
A look that can be both delicate and hippy, or edgy and cool, the head scarf is a great way to incorporate a silk scarf for a cool daytime look. Tie by folding your scarf into a triangle, and drape over your head so the longest edge is flat against your head. Tie the ends at the nape of your neck and you’re good to go.
Delicate, classy and oh so feminine, the silk scarf is a beautiful hair accessory no matter what your hair type! Keep it simple with a classic skirt and simple top and you have a look for business, lunch and dinner with friends! Fold you scarf diagonally until you have a skinny shape (although the thickness you can cater to your liking). Wrap the scarf around you bun or ponytail and secure it with a knot or hair pins for extra security on a breezy day.
A classic look of high flyers, the silk scarf as a necklace upgrades any work look to mean real business! Place the scarf around your neck with one end longer over one shoulder. Wrap the longest end round your neck twice (or more depending on the length of the scarf), then tie the ends together. Let the ends fall and go close those deals!
Sometimes a belt is too much, but a silk scarf is the perfect delicate touch to your everyday casual look. Rectangle scarves work best, simply thread through your belt loops, tie and let the ends fall adding a classy yet carefree touch to your brunch look.
The silk scarf can be a gorgeous piece all on its own! Fold your scarf diagonally in half, wrap the long end round your chest and tie at the back for a gorgeous top. Perfect for summer days out, best paired with simple accessories and neutral trousers to highlight your silk star of the show!
The beauty of this gorgeous accessory is that you can find a print to suit you in any color you desire, no matter your budget. Whether you invest in high fashion, artisan market, or thrift store, your style will be instantly transformed with a simple touch of silk.
