The Silk Scarf

I’m sure most of you have one of these laying around your house somewhere….right? Or if you don’t, I’m sure your mom/sister/grandmother does! During the Fall and Winter, throwing on a scarf can sometimes be the perfect accessory that serves to both keep you warm and fashionably accessorize your outfit. During the Spring and Summer, though, you are most likely wearing your scarf as merely an accessory….well, at least for most of us in relatively normal climate regions. During these warm months, I personally like to wear scarves in a number of different ways: as a necklace, headband, or even a shirt.

Here are a few pictures from my summer in Italy a few years ago….I wore my silk scarves all the time! The two ways I wore them here are pretty self explanatory….but there really are SO many different ways you can wear a scarf. A simple google or you tube search is all you need.  And with summer coming up, hopefully you can make use of a silk scarf yourself :)

Another option is wearing it tied around your neck for a preppy, feminine look…I love wearing them as a pop of pattern or color underneath blazers or cardigans.
