Every well-stocked closet needs a silk scarf (or two, or many). It’s never been more true than this season where the scarf is taking the stage as the most versatile accessory. The silk square can be worn around the neck, in your hair, or even styled as a top. Larger sizes can be used on the beach or pool as a pareo and in a pinch, it can be used as a face mask.
As Mother’s Day approaches thought it was the perfect time to spotlight this classic accessory as the must-have item of the season. This simple square offers a lot of bang for the buck and with a little bit of imagination can be used in a variety of ways.
Hermes silk scarves are the golden standard but we also love a great Pucci or Missoni print. A Versace motif is always perfect, the Gucci florals are works of art and a Dior oblique is as Haute as they come this season.
If you’re thinking of offering a scarf as a gift, you can pair it with the book How to Tie a Scarf: 33 Styles. We also love the old Hermes scarf catalogs as a gift accompaniment. Alternatively, you can click to the Hermes website where there are lots of tutorials and ideas.
There really are no right or wrong answers when it comes to tying your silk scarf. The only faux pas is leaving them unworn in the boxes. (Guilty!)
