Scarves are one underutilized piece of clothing. There are several ways how to wear scarves with all your outfits. You can tie a scarf for all occasions. I love to wear scarves with my accessories and on my head.

How to wear scarves as a Top

How to wear scarves

These simple 9 stylish ways how to wear scarves to dress up your looks. It is a great option of accessory to elevate your basics. Although I will only share the stylish ways to wear scarfs. I came across this demo of how to tie scarves in different ways.

So, it’s time to dig up your scarf from your closet and start dressing up your outfit with it.

Tie a silk scarf to your bag

If you shopped for bags last year, you will notice that most of these bags were adorned with colorful silk clothing or cute toy. This can be replicated by using a silk scarf.

I love to tie the scarf as a bow in my bag. It adds color to the bag. It is a simple way to be stylish as it gives your look a lift. Also, it gives you a whole outlook with the silk scarf

Wear your scarf on Blazer

Blazers are always a staple wardrobe essential. Another way to wear a scarf is to rock on your blazer. This look can be pulled off with any type of scarf. You can wear your pashmina scarf tucked into your blazer. This look is perfect for style as well as warmth. Also, you use a silk scarf tied as a bow with your blazer for a chic look.

Add color to your outfit

Vibrant block color scarfs, as well as a silk scarf, are simple ways to add color to your outfit. Some of us have days where we just want to rock monochrome neutrals. On such days, you can complete your look with a solid color scarf.

So, if you’re rocking a black dress, add a red or blue scarf to add color or contrast to your outfit. This gives your outlook a lift and a chic look. Also, you can wear scarves as a simple way to color block your outfits effortlessly.

Scarfs on Beach wear

After my first time at Tarkwa bay beach, I am always excited to go on vacation to the beach. The serenity of walking on the shores of the beach is something to look forward to. Also, it is one of those times to get to wear bikinis or shorts to show off your beach body.

If you need what to wear to the beach, you can wear scarves on your waist (like a Sarong) or as an added cover-up. It is very stylish. For those who prefer to be modest, it is a stylish way to wear beachwear with less to the skin to show off.

Scarfs with Jackets

Scarfs are also very stylish with jackets. A stylish way to wear a scarf on jackets can throw a solid color pashmina around your neck with each end in front and at the back. Also, this look can be pulled with a silk scarf tied in a bow for a chic look with either a leather, bomber, or denim jacket.

Long in front and belted

Another way to dress stylishly in scarves is to drape them over your shoulder and belted. We all know that cinching the waist normally flatters the body. So, adding a belt to this look brings your scarf to focus. You can rock a solid vibrant color scarf with monochrome neutral (black or grey) to style this look.

Drape your scarf

Another way to dress stylishly in a scarf is to drape it. You can use a large scarf or pashmina from your closet to achieve this look. The plus side is that you get to keep warm and be stylish at the same time. If your scarf is very large (blanket scarf) fold it into a triangle and drape it like a poncho. You can drape the scarf with your dress to look stylish.

Swap belt for a scarf

A stylish way to wear scarves that I am loving now is to wear the scarf as a belt. You can either use a small silk scarf or a square scarf (that can go around your waist). You can use a silk scarf as a belt for your pants or skirts. Fold the scarf to make it thin (similar to the size of a belt) then pass it through the belt holes in your pants. You can tie it in front as a bow or to the side.

Scarf with workwear

Scarves are also super stylish for work outfits. For some of us, the scarf is a simple way to dress stylishly for your cold. For warmth, the pashmina, as well as the blanket scarf, is perfect. It keeps you warm at the office in place of taking in too much hot coffee or tea.

If your aim of using a scarf is just for style, opt for colorful silk scarves. One stylish way to wear a silk scarf with your workwear is to wear it long with your blazer. Also, you can tie the scarf on your neck in a bow with your dress to look chic.

How to wear scarves as top

Another super stylish way I love to wear scarves is as tops. This you can wear as a beach outfit or a lounge wear.

I did a DIY tutorial on how to wear scarves as tops. Check it out for more inspirations on how to wear scarves casually.
