Silk scarves are a great way to accessorize an outfit. In recent fashion, in addition to being worn around the neck, they have been styled on handbags, wrists, in hairdos, and worn as belts. These trends originate from the French woman’s love of wearing scarves on a daily basis from which stemmed a need to functionally carry them around after being worn. Storing a scarf inside a purse might not always be the best option; the bag might be too small or you might not want to get makeup and lipstick stains on your scarf. The French woman has developed different methods of carrying around her silk scarves in a practical manner that over time have become a fashion trend in its own.
There are a few reasons why silk makes for the best of scarves:
- silk will not make you overheat and will act as a wind-breaker. Even in Summer, they are worn during car rides in a convertible or on a boat ride.
- silk will hold its shape and hardly ever wrinkles. It can be shoved at the bottom of a bag and still look good once taken out.
Below are different ways to wear a silk scarf.
With A Ponytail – When you are on the go, it is super easy to throw your hair into a ponytail and to tie your scarf around it. Can be worn as a bow or just tied into a simple knot on a high or low ponytail. It is a great way to accessorize an outfit or to glam up a simple hairdo, and accomplishes the goal of getting the silk scarf out of the way after it has been worn.
In A Bow On A Handbag – Everyone knows how to tie a bow. This method works on all handbags and takes hardly any time! It is a great way of stowing your silk scarf and definitely makes your handbag look chic.
Tied Around The Neck In A Simple Knot – By wrapping the silk scarf around once and knotting it prevents it from being chunky around the neck. It is more easily achieved with a skinny or slim scarf. Letting it drape down is not only part of the simplicity of the look but also adds fluidity to an outfit.
Wrapped Around The Handle Of A Bag – An alternative to tying the silk scarf in a bow. It may look complex, but in actuality takes minimal time to achieve such a luxurious result.

Simple, elegant, and super cozy for these cold Winter months. By playing on black and white tonalities, the accent is on the gold metallics of the accessories. The metal work on the Chanel belt is beautifully designed, and the Versace watch is absolutely gorgeous!

I have been loving the cardigan + cami combination lately. It is the perfect outfit idea to transition from Summer to Fall. By keeping this look monotone with black and white, more emphasis can be put on the orange cardigan. It is a great colour hue to add to your Fall wardrobe!

I love wearing athletic clothes to run errands and for those lazy days around the house. Of course being a pink kind of girl, I added those colourful accents to personalize this outfit. I actually wear a similar outfit very frequently, as seen below. I did use the same hat for both pictures today. Be sure to use my promo code, LILYBELF20 for 20% off your next Halifornia purchase!

Totally feeling the early 2000s vibes with this outfit! I recently purchased this denim jacket and instantly fell in love with it! To get an oversized, boyfriend effect, I went up a few sizes. The rolled-up sleeves are for practicality but also add to the laid-back look. For the remainder of the outfit, I decided to opt for a black and white palette, including black skinny jeans, a white tee, white sneakers, and a black leather tote. In the future, I am definitely looking forward to styling my denim jacket with a light-wash or white denim.
This outfit style is comfortable and casual, and can be worn for many everyday activities. Particularly, I wore this outfit to one of my final exams. It is fast and easy to put together as to not take away any studying time. One trick I have developed over the years to get dressed efficiently in the morning is to either plan your outfit the night before or put it together in your mind while doing hair and makeup. Getting dressed is usually the last step in my morning routine, as to not get any makeup or hair products on the clothing.
Hope your day is filled with sunshine and love, xox!

This look is all about playing up wardrobe basics. We are using a basic white t-shirt, black skinny jeans, nude patent pumps, and a black structured bag, all of which are found in almost all closets. For this particular look, I would wear the t-shirt in a half-tuck. The focal item of this outfit is the blazer; giving a twist to an ordinary workwear item with a pop of colour and an amusing cut.
Happy New Year everyone!
