5 Styles – How to Wear a Silk Scarf in 2022
For an unexpected approach to add that refined (and possibly even quirky) sophistication and graphic novelty to your ensemble this season, look no further than the classic silk scarf. Of course, as designers and street style celebrities have demonstrated time and time again, this trendy accessory may be worn in a variety of ways. There’s no shortage of fashionable style options, whether it’s worn as a classic headwrap or an elegant bracelet or belt with a punk edge. Check out our list of this season’s hottest silk scarf styles!
Tie a Scarf as a Headscarf
Adding a simple, charming boho look to your outfit is easily achievable with the headscarf. And, here’s the thing, with one of our patterns and colour options, you’re going to get an extraordinary look that definitely turns heads. Wear this with minimal jewellery – let your personality and silk accessory do the talking.
To tie your scarf, grab two diagonal corners of it and fold it in half to create a triangle. Drape the long edge over one side of your head so that the ends are coming out on either side. Take those ends back around to where they started at your nape – this will be just underneath the pointy corner – then tie them together with a knot so that when you pull tight, there is enough slack for you to wrap or position however suits best. Unforgettable.
Tie a Scarf as a Dress
This look is all about soft, statement glam! This one takes minimal work for a refined, boho-chic result and makes a dazzling possibility during any season and at any event – whether you’re at an art exhibit or going chic at the beach during summer.
Tie one end of a large scarf around your neck, so that you don’t have any loose ends that stick out at the back. Now, wrap the longer end of the scarf around your body. Tuck it in and hide it under the shorter end. And that’s it, you’re pretty much done, ready to go with those goddess vibes.
Tip: If you like, tie a ribbon around your waist for a touch of extra, subtle flair as you accentuate your curves and play up the look a little.
Tie a Scarf as Top
You’ve probably realised that achieving hot looks with a silk scarf doesn’t take that much effort. That’s exactly why we find them to be the perfect accessory. Here, we’re presenting you with another classic, but edgy look that offers a plethora of looks to work with. What’s more, the more prints you own, the more options you have – even with this one style.
We’re talking about wearing a silk scarf as a top or as a bandana top. It’s proving to be a hot look as we’re soon moving towards Spring/Summer 2022. Here at Ilona Tambor, we’re moving away from the classic paisley cowboy look, opting for something more whimsical and enchanting. There’s more room to move between formal and smart casual with our prints.
How to tie it? Fold your scarf in half so that it makes a triangle. With the open end of the triangle facing down, wrap both ends of your scarf around your chest and tie them together on the back. Simple. Effective.
Tip: Tuck the point at the bottom for an alternative way to wear this look.
Tie a Scarf as a Belt
One thing is clear: Silk scarves are making a big splash. Not only are they a chic way to jazz up any cold-weather ensemble, but they are now being used to improve and expand a personal look. They can take the place of a belt, giving the wearer a fresh, polished look. This chic and flattering way to wear a scarf is a great way to switch up any work outfit.
To get started, first tie the silk scarf as you would a regular belt, keeping a loose tail to the rear. There’s always the option of ruffling things up a bit for an edgier touch, too. At the end of the day, the premise is simple, but the result uplifts an entire outfit.
Tie a scarf as a Shrug or Cape
Perhaps you are looking for a new way to wear a scarf. The easy, chic, and super flattering way to wear a scarf this season is as a shrug or cape. Try wearing a voluminous scarf over a silk blouse for an amazing look, or perhaps an oversized scarf will fit a turtleneck with ease. What’s even better is that the simple, classic way to tie a scarf as a cape is to simply tuck it into the collar of your blouse and knot it at the back. The result is an effortlessly chic look that will take you from day to night. Dress it up for a party If you are heading on a holiday or family event.
