There’s something so chic, cool, and effortless about a woman who can pull off a silk square scarf without looking like a granny. With no viral video showing me 17 ways to wear a silk scarf,  I’ll admit that I’ve been intimidated by the look of a daunting square scarf. It’s lying there so exquisite, colorful, large, and….square. Let your creativity run wild, but I’ll get you started with these five easy ways to style a square scarf.

Bandana Back Tie

I love wearing this style because it’s a little bit western, a lotta bit chic, and super cool.

1. Fold the scarf in half so it makes a triangle. (If it’s a larger scarf like the one I’m wearing, fold it in half agin.)

2. Take the two ends and tie the ends behind your neck with the point in front.

3. Adjust the front as needed, straight down the middle or to the side.

 

Small Side Knot

The side knot is super easy to create and also chic AF. Wear it and talk with a French accent because you may be confused for a Parisian.

1. Fold the scarf in half so it makes a triangle. 

2. Fold the tip of the triangle side in half to meet the straight side.

3. Fold in half again. Repeat as many times as necessary until the scarf is 2-3 inches thick.

4. Wrap the scarf around your neck two times and tie to the side.

 

Front Tie

Easy, peasy, lemon squeazy. The looks of a man’s tie without a pesky windsor knot.

1. Fold the scarf in half so it makes a triangle. 

2. Fold the tip of the triangle side in half to meet the straight side.

3. Fold in half again. Repeat as many times as necessary until the scarf is 2-3 inches thick.

4. Wrap around your neck with the loose ends hanging in the front.

5. Tie the ends around your neck, and double knot if you dare!

 

The Hair Tie

An easy and fun way to wear a silk scarf is to tie it around your ponytail. This may work better with a skinny silk scarf as there isn’t as much fabric to compete with your sassy ponytail. If you’re a short-haired gal like me, this tie gives you all of the dramatic pony feels without the extensions!

1. Fold the scarf in half so it makes a triangle. 

2. Fold the tip of the triangle side in half to meet the straight side.

3. Fold in half again. Repeat as many times as necessary until the scarf is 2-3 inches thick.

4. Tie the ends around your ponytail, and let the ends fly free!

 

The Handbag Accessory

If you’re still a little hesitant about sporting a silk scarf, tie it on your handbag or tote bag. A silk scarf is the perfect handbag accessory, and the easiest tie of them all!

Goodwill is a great place to find vintage scarves! My advice is for newbie Goodwill shoppers is to stick to accessories first before venturing into other parts of the store. It’s less overwhelming and easy to find a handbag, scarf, or belt that’s the perfect size!

I took a little break from the blog over the holidays, and it felt amazing to refocus and get inspired! I have some awesome things planned for 2018, and I can’t wait for all the opportunities the new year has in store! Thank you to each person that takes the time to visit my little corner of the internet! I have a long list of goals for 2018, but I’ll spare you. Perception is my main focus this year. I’m working on how I perceive others, myself, situations, society, and the world as a whole. Do you have any goals or words that you’re working on in 2018? Leave me a comment below!
