Visual Therapy: 5 Fresh & Clever Ways to Style A Scarf

Fall is just around the corner, but the summer heat is still on full blast. At least for a few more weeks, less is still more when it comes to getting dressed. So, on a muggy late summer day, when all you can bear to wear is a simple cotton dress, tie on a silk scarf in a fun color or print to amp up your look.

We love the classic styling of a scarf tied around your neck, but there are a number of different ways to wear your favorite silk kerchief. Keep scrolling for 5 fresh and clever styling ideas we love and shop the post to see our favorite silk scarves available now.

1. Around Your Neck

Go the classic route and tie one loosely around your neck, or loop the scarf around once more and tie in place for a chic choker effect like the one below.

2. Wear 2 Scarves as Arm Cuffs

Choose two small silk scarves in complimentary (or matching!) colors or prints and tie one on each arm a la Leandra Medine of Man Repeller.

3. Wear One as a Belt

Choose a long, narrow kerchief in a funky print and tie one around your waist in lieu of a belt.

4. Tie one on Your Bag

Don’t feel like adding another layer of fabric onto your skin on a hot day? Tie a colorful scarf onto a neutral handbag for an easy touch of color.
