silk scarf for summer two ways

I’ve never worn a scarf around my neck that wasn’t for warmth purposes.  I have plenty of wool scarves for the winter and over sized shawl type scarves for when I travel.  But I’ve never had one that was strictly for fashion purposes.  So before I take the plunge into buying a classic Hermes silk scarf I’m trying out this skinny tie silk scarf from Madewell.  It’s so inexpensive, that even if I only wear it only once, I won’t care!

How to style a summer silk scarf… First I styled it around my neck with a simple knot.  It was my version of a necklace but with a skinny tie silk scarf.  I felt so French!  And then since I’m hat obsessed I added this white cap.  (It comes in 5 colors FYI and I’m wanting them all!)

But later since it was so hot, I tried using it as a hair tie.  There’s a picture in my AiWinspiration Instagram of a girl with a blue scarf in her hair.  That’s where I got the idea.  I can’t wait to try out different ways to tie my hair up with this scarf.  Especially when we head to the beach next month.

Another way I love seeing a silk scarf styled is tied around a bag.  I’ve always adored that look!  I should have tried it with this bag but simply forgot.   Just wait, I’m sure you will see it like that coming up in a new post!

So I have to ask… do you wear silk scarves?   How do you like to style them?
