Ways To Wear A Scarf

As a style expert I’m always looking for stylish ways to add some personality to an outfit or accessory. I styled seven ways to wear a scarf in photos and a fun video. Scarves are an easy way to mix up a look or add one to  a handbag. Check out my suggestions for how to style a scarf around your neck, wrapped around the handle of a handbag, as a side tie, knotted, as a handle of a bag, added to a clutch and more.

The Side Tie

While you can wear a skinny scarf like a belt, this is an update by just slipping the scarf  through two or three loops and then tying it on the side.



 The Grab Bag

Swap out the handle of bag, slip the scarf through the ring of a small bag, twist it and the pull it through the ring on the opposite side and secure it. You’ve now got a new strap.


 The Turtleneck

This is certainly one of the obvious ways to wear a silk scarf. I took this Hermès scarf and folded it into a triangle and then folded it several times. Next, I tied it around my neck once and brought the ends to the front to tie and let hang loose.


 The Instant Update

Just slip a small scarf through the ring, zipper pull or handle of a clutch and tie to let it hang loose.
