How To Wear A Silk Scarf

Posted on March 17 2016

With new trends emerging faster and faster, there aren't many fashion items that can remain unchanged through the years without going out of fashion. When it comes to accessories, silk scarves are certainly the most obvious example of timeless style.

Even though they probably originated in the Far East, they became a staple in European and American fashion thanks to French and Italian designers. The pioneers of silk scarves were, respectively, Hermès and Emilio Pucci, whose wonderful scarves are still beloved among fashionistas today.

Among the first silk scarf trendsetters we can find icons from the likes of Audrey Hepburn (pictured below) and Grace Kelly, who started wearing them as headscarves (“touring” style) to protect from the breeze of the French Riviera.

However, if you don't live in Cannes or in Saint Tropez such a problem might never arise. But don't worry, you'll still need -and want- a silk scarf. You can wear it around your neck, no matter whether you wrap and tie it or you just let it casually swing on your shoulders (or however you like it); you can also wear it as a headband to give your looks a “pin-up” touch, or use it as a sort of belt if you want your dresses and blouses to fit tighter around your waist. Moreover, you can just tie it around the handle of your bag to upgrade your accessory game.

Silk scarves are among the finest and most valuable products in fashion, so you get what you pay for, meaning you'll need to invest big amounts of money to get the best ones. But there's good news on this front too: on High Fashion Society you can find pre-loved scarves from the top brands in the industry (Hermès, Gucci, Alexander McQueen to name a few) at the best prices you'll ever find.
