10 Ways To Wear A Silk Scarf

Silk scarfSilk scarfHi friend! Today we’re excited to share with you 10 ways to wear one of our favorite staples, silk scarves!

1. Fold your scarf into a long rectangle (you can do this with traditional square scarves or skinny scarves). Tie it behind your head, under your hair.

22. Style your hair into a messy bun or top knot. Fold your scarf into a long rectangle and tie around your head so the knots in the front. Style the knot by twisting or tucking parts of it in.

33. Tie your scarf into a knot in the middle. Style the knot in the front of your head and tie the scarf around your head, over your hair in the back.

44. Style your hair into a pony tail. Tie the scarf over your hair tie so that it looks like a floppy bow!

55. Tie the scarf onto a strand of your hair in the back. Braid your scarf into your hair and (if long enough) use the end to tie the braid securely.

66. Fold the scarf into a long rectangle and tie around your head, over your hair. This one is super laid-back but cute!

77. Style your hair in a messy bun and tie the scarf around the base of the fun with the knot in the back.

88. Add color to your outfit by tying your scarf around your neck.

99. Fold your scarf into a large triangle (this works best with traditional square scarves). Tie the longest two ends around your head and under your hair.

1010. Thinking of wearing your scarf later on? Add a bit contrast to your purse by tying your scarf around one handle in a bow or a cute knot.

By the way, our silk scarves are back in stock! Hope you had a wonderful weekend! emma

  • Such a cool post – silk scarves are such a versatile accessory, you’ve really helped me think out of the box for how I can style mine!

  • What a fab post, thanks girls. Will definately be wearing more silk scarves this season!


  • I absolutely adore the look of a vintage scarf tied in the hair. I recently cut my hair super short, so I think this might be just the thing for those lazy hair days. Now where do I get these cool scarves from?

  • that second way is so cute 🙂 i love your scarf collection!


  • Amazing Blog!

    We just entered the blogging world and would appreciate if you looked at our blog!

    Annie & Nicole

  • this is fantastic! I have so many silk scarves b/c I’m obsessed with the patterns but I rarely find ways to wear them. Thanks for the ideas 🙂

  • May I add No.11? If your scarf is long enough you can also wear it as a belt, e.g. over a maxi dress! I think it looks so cute (and it´s much more comfortable than a stiff leather belt)!! 🙂

    I love your blog, I´m looking forward to checking it out EVERY day (it´s seriously one of the first things I do in the morning, after getting a cup of coffe of course ;))

    I´d feel honoured if you visit my blog which is pretty new but I already have so much fun with it..


  • Thanks for the post. For some reason I’ve been intimidated by scarves, because I always think I’m going to wear it wrong. I really want some square ones now, I want to wear them at my neck like you guys do!

  • Cute! Love the second style, can’t wait to try it!


  • After attending a 40’s tea-party and tying a scarf in my hair I have been loving these cover-ups for days when my hair isnt cooperating!



  • Thank you! I will be buying more silk scarves from you on–I never knew what to do with them before!

  • Thank you for sharing these great variations. It’s inspiring!

  • Darling.

    This reminded me of the three lovely sisters in the classic film Fiddler on the Roof, and their penchant for wearing #9. I used to steal my mum’s scarves, tie them round my hair, and belt out my own rendition of “Matchmaker, matchmaker, make me a match!”

  • So many wonderful ideas! I’m always at a bit of a loss as to what to do with scarves…this helps a lot 🙂


  • Oh you girls are just endlessly cute.


  • I LOVE the one in the braid! So cute….is it hard?
