Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you’ve likely seen the infamous satin scarf on your Instagram feed. They come in oodles of different prints, colors, shapes, and sizes— but they. are. everywhere.
I’ve been getting a lot of questions regarding said scarf, so I figured a quick blog post was in order.
These scarves can be styled so many different ways, they’re a no brainer. Here are five easy ways to style a satin scarf (pro tip: try all five so that you can get multiple Instagram posts out of it).
Wear it in your hair. Adding a scarf to your sloppy pony, or messy bun makes it instantly chic. I love doing a low, loose ponytail and using the scarf as my hair tie for an effortless, boho look.
I’ve also styled this as a head-wrap, which is cute with the right outfit.
Tie it on your purse. I do this with the old scarves that I’ve already worn a few times. I love how a scarf looks tied on the handle of an everyday bag that you’re bored with. We’ll call this a bank account friendly, purse face-list.
Wear it as a crop top. This is v cute, but not practical. I’ve worn the scarf as a top twice— once in France and then again in Palm Springs. In France, I wore it under a matching blazer and short set so I had extra coverage while walking around Versailles, in case the top decided to loosen. My advice here is to wear this on a day that you’re not moving around a ton, as it tends to slip over time and requires constant readjusting.
Use it as a belt with some cropped denim. Here’s an innovative way to style it: wear it as a belt. I think this would be so cute with a plain top, high-waisted cropped (or boyfriend) denim, a hat, and some boho sandals.
Style it as a neck scarf. The Amazon scarves may be too long and chunky for this, but I love a good neck scarf.
