A Silk scarf is set to become one of the chicest fashion accessories of the season. The likes of Dua Lipa, Bella Hadid and Kendall Jenner regularly rock the look and, with so many ways to wear, a scarf can be one of the hardest working items in your wardrobe.
Our collection of 100% silk satin scarfs in an array of stunning prints are the perfect way to add some smile-inducing shades into your look. But how do you tie them? Read on as we reveal how to style your scarf for spring and beyond…
Silk scarfs are excellent accessories, but did you know they can also turn into a top? With a nod to the Y2K trend, it’s an effortlessly cool look as the weather heats up. You can tie your scarf in so many ways, but we have two favourites!
Firstly, the halter crop top. For this, you need to fold the scarf in half to create a triangle. Wrap it around your torso so the two ends are in front and the top corner point down at your back. Cross the ends in front and knot behind your neck. Second up, the triangle tube top. For this look, fold the scarf diagonally into a triangular shape. Position the scarf across your chest with the point of the triangle facing towards the ground and then tie in the back. Secure with a hair tie or rubber band around the knot for added safety! Perfect worn with a pair of jeans and chunky sandals by day or strappy stilettos by night.
Bored of your current piece of arm candy? A silk scarf can brighten up any bag and give it a new lease of life. Swap over the prints and it’s almost as if it’s a new tote every time! The simplest way to create a style statement with your scarf is to simply tie it in a knot around the base of the handle. However, if you want to dial up the impact, try wrapping it around the full handle – made famous by the Twilly at Hermes. For this, you need to fold the scarf in half to find the midpoint. Hold the midpoint of the scarf up to the middle of the purse handle and begin wrapping in one direction. Tie a knot at the base of the handle then repeat on the other side.
You might not have thought about it, but a silk scarf can double as jewellery too, working as a bracelet-like soft wrap around your wrist. You will need to fold the scarf into a triangle and twist into a thin silhouette. Simply wrap it around your wrist, tie a knot, and that’s it! Instant impact with every move.
Again there are so many ways to style your scarf around your neck - from the bang on trend choker style to the more classic simple loop tie. For us it’s all about the neck knot. For this look, you need to fold your scarf diagonally to create a triangle, then roll from crease to corner until you have a tube. Centre it on the front of your neck, then wrap it around, tying a knot or bow in the front.
Nothing adds some impact like a pop of print in your hair. The headband option is one of the easiest but most effective - adding some real zest to your look, especially if you’re keeping the rest of your outfit simple and understated. Simply fold your scarf as thin or as wide as you want and wrap it around your head, tying it at the nape of your neck underneath your hair. The wider option brings a 70s flair that feels boho beuatiful, whilst a thinner option delivers a preppy touch that looks elegant.
