Silk scarf as a top

For those days when you need to add a pop of color to your monochromatic outfit, lay your scarf down flat, go on and fold it along the diagonal axis, wrap it around your body and tie a tight knot. Even though this option can be considered as a summer styling hack, no one can really stop you from layering it with your oversized blazer for your autumnal city strolls.

Silk scarf as a bandana

This tried-and-trusted way to wear your silk scarf allows you to put your hair into a low bun (optional) and fold your scarf diagonally to create a triangle. Then, all you have to do is wrap it around your head and tie the ends into a knot at the back of your head.

Now, this one is a bit tricky, but the end result will “wow” you we promise. Fold the scarf to create a triangle shape, then keep folding into a band. After, grab the two ends and bring forward from the back of your head to tie on your forehead. Grab the two ends and tuck them into the sides under the scarf leaving the knot showing.

Silk scarf for bag handle

These beauties look surprisingly eye-catching when hanging from a monochromatic bag. For this silk scarf styling idea, twist it around your bag’s handle, tie it into a knot and let the excess end fall down gracefully on your bag. Additionally, you can always tie the ends into a bow for a chic upgrade.

Silk scarf for ponytail braid

Arguably, styling silk scarfs as a part of your hairstyle not only adds volume to your braid but also adds an elegant flair even to the simplest outfits. Opt for a relatively long scarf with a beautiful all-over pattern and wrap it around your hair exactly like you would have done with a hair tie. It would be best to secure your ponytail first with your hair tie of choice and place the scarf on top of it.

Hold the loose ends at the back of your head and proceed to divide all of your hair into three even sections. Now it’s time to get creative! Place the two ends of the scarf into the two outer sections and start braiding until you reach the end. Secure the scarf in place with a double knot and voila!

For this silk scarf styling idea, you need to make sure and have your scarf steamed or ironed beforehand. Now that you have your scarf ready for grabs, go ahead and pick your favorite necklace - you might want to opt for a sturdy, durable piece just in case. Now, lay your scarf flat and pick up the two opposite ends out of the four. Tie them together and create a little knot. Proceed to unclasp the necklace, loop it in the fold you’ve just created we are almost done.

Grab the two long ends of the silk scarf. Wrap them around your torso and secure them with a knot at the back. Now, pick up the necklace that should be hanging loosely and clasp it around your neck.
