How to Wear A Silk Scarf

Silk scarves are back in trend, appearing in many Instagram influencer's pictures, but how do you wear one?

Silk scarves were hugely popular in the 50s and 60s with icons like Audrey Hepburn, Grace Kelly and Brigitte Bardot often seen wearing one, it seems as though this trend has made a comeback.

Here are 4 ideas on how you can style the silk scarf:

1. In your hair

Silk scarves are perfect to use as a hairband. They look so cute tied around high or low ponytails, buns or in a half-up/half-down style.

2. Draped around your neck

The most obvious way to wear a silk scarf is to simply drape it around your neck. They can be a really nice addition to a simple outfit like a white t-shirt and jeans.

Match your outfit to some of the colours in your scarf to really make it pop.

If you're feeling adventurous, you could even wear your scarf as a bandeau top like one the girls in the Instagram post!

3. As a bracelet

A silk scarf tied around your wrist as a bracelet is a fabulous way to complete your outfit. They would look so cute paired with a classic little black dress.

4. Tie in a knot

Take a note from air hostesses and tie your silk scarf in a simple knot around your neck and turn it slightly to the side.
