How to Wear a Silk Scarf

April Peveteaux

scarvesCheck out that pile of silk scarves I just unearthed while preparing for sunnier days but still breezy nights. Yes, that's a McGovern for President scarf, thank you, Mom.

You'd think I'd know how to tie the square, rectangle, tiny, and super-long scarves that usually live on my closet floor, but I'm drawing a blank. The winter scarf? Nailed it! But the summer scarf has me scratching my head.

Luckily there are a plethora of how-to videos on YouTube, and I waded through them all to find the best silk scarf-tying tips for you. Hair or neck, these two picks have it all.

  • My favorite rectangle scarf look is the surprisingly simple double bow, gleaned from this video from The Refinery.
  • The how to tie a summer scarf video from GlossTV gives you the most bang for your buck. They tie small and long in your hair and on your bod. My favorite tip here is actually the hair scarf, since I can never seem to get that one quite right. However, the look I'll most likely be sporting on a springtime eve is grabbing my littlest scarf and wearing it like a choker.

Now go raid your own mother's closet and experiment!
