Silk scarves are beautiful and available in a wide array of colors. They are the perfect item to use in accessorizing nearly any look or outfit. You may want to learn a few new ideas on how to use this wonderful accessory so that you look your best.
A silk scarf is a much cheaper accessory than many other options, especially jewelry. It is classy and elegant, yet won't break your bank account. Wearing a silk scarf is a definite way to make a fashion statement, no matter what type of style you have or what look you are going for with your wardrobe or outfit.
Most women wear silk scarves around their necks in a simple knot. This can be worn loosely or appear slightly tight. Wearing a silk scarf under a V-necked blouse, button-down or not, is a great look. Or maybe you are the type of woman who customarily wears business suits for work? A silk scarf is a perfect way to accessorize, as it adds a splash of both color and elegance. You can even slip it, folded, into your jacket's upper pocket, a look made more famous by men.
A pin or brooch can be applied to a silk scarf to give it an even more beautiful look. A cameo is ideal to achieve an elegant, classy look that is appropriate for work and formal functions. You can even drape the scarf over one shoulder to give an even more exotic, unexpected appearance that is somewhat reminiscent to wearing a fur stole.
If you are a more casual dresser, you can even wear a silk scarf knotted around your neck or draped across your shoulders. A simple pair of jeans and a black turtleneck sweater or shirt can appear fancy with this style applied with your favorite colorful silk scarf. Such a small accessory can really make a huge difference in your appearance!
If you have long hair, you might want to wear your silk scarf on your head. You can pull your hair back first with an elastic twist and then tie your scarf over it while you wear a bun or ponytail. You can even wear your silk scarf on your head to look like a skullcap. This is especially useful if you are dressed casually and are not particularly happy with your hair that day. Perhaps you are having a bad hair day? The ideal time to choose your scarf is when it's raining. This will somewhat hide your hair, yet give you a classy look due to the beauty of the scarf.
Another way to accessorize with your favorite silk scarf, although not as common, is to loop it into your belt hook. You can tie it on the side of your pants so that it hangs, a la Steven Tyler. It's unconventional, but who says you have to follow the norm when it comes to accessorizing? The sky's the limit as to how you want to wear your beautiful silk scarf!
