How to style our silk scarves

Mary Alice Duff

How to instantly add a touch of quintessential French style to any ensemble: add a silk scarf. At Alice Alexander we've designed two incredible prints to add a splash of color and print into your wardrobe. Inpsired by the trippy prints of the late 60s and 70s they add dose of vintage-y vibes to any outfit.

Styling a small silk scarf is a great way to add a pop of color to an otherwise neutral outfit. I've added the Lava Party Small Silk Scarf as a neckerchief (simply fold into a triangle, roll up, and tie around the neck). Styling a scarf this way looks great with a button down (like our Ina Blouse) or a simple white tee (like our Mia tee).

 

I also like to add a small silk scarf to my hair. Find something that contrasts with your hair color to give it a nice pop. Here I used the Houndstooth Small Silk Scarf. 

 

Other great small scarf styling ideas: adding it to the chain/ strap of handbag, wearing it as a bracelet, adding it under the collar of a button down. Truly, the options are endless.

Now...how to style a large silk scarf? At Alice Alexander we carry a 40X40 inch/ 101X101 centimeter silk scarf which is pretty substantial in size.

Folding the large silk scarf into a triangle and rolling it into a tube is the perfect way to add a pop of color to a simple straw hat. If you're wearing a fairly neutral outfit, this is a great way to add more color with zero commitment. 

 

Another option that works year round, is to fold the scarf into a large triangle, and tie around your neck securing it with a small knot. I especially like to style my scarf like this with a jacket.

Here's two more large silk scarf styling ideas: style it ala Hollywood movie star (I call this the Grace Kelly). Where's my convertible and very hunky co-star? 

And secondly, style it in this 1970's inspired look.

 

Pair it with some hoop earrings, a great pair of shades and you're in business.

 

I found that the more time I spent playing around with all the different silk scarf styling options, the more ideas I came up with.
