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!
silk scarf for summer two ways
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?
