How To Wear A Summer Scarf

How to wear a summer scarf.  Summer scarves are some of my favourite accessories. Extremely versatile, they can be worn knotted around your necks on a chilly day, as a wrap for an elegant dinner, as a head wrap and even as a halter top.  What I love most about summer scarves is that most often they are colourful, light and breezy. If you are like me and you stick with a fairly monochromatic wardrobe, which includes a fair number of black items, than a summer scarf makes for the perfect contrast.

Colour. Summer scarves should be lively and vibrant. For a soft romantic look, opt for pastels. Light pinks, yellows and classic whites look great on the hottest summer days. I like to think of them as an extension of the sun, especially on  cloudy days. Vibrant colours like mint, orange and fuchsia are very elegant and I love these stand out choices for night.  A lovely green makes for a chic wrap on a cooler evening, or perhaps tie a bright fuchsia scarf over your hair for a romantic road trip reminiscent of the golden age of Hollywood.

Texture. I tend to gravitate to simple scarves, but there are so many gorgeous textures out there. How about an elegant embossed floral print or perhaps a scarf with a golden thread interwoven through the fabric? Of course, fringe is always a wonderful choice.

Pattern. Why stick with a solid when there are hundreds of stunning prints in the world? Leopard prints, abstract florals to city or country scapes, the possibilities are endless. These are all timeless and give you a perfect excuse to have some fun. No print is too old, you can always make it your own.

Fabric.  In the winter, I favour toasty textiles like wool but the summer is meant for airy fabrics like a gauzy cotton, loosely woven linens,  the cool feel of silk or even the luxuriousness of a silk velvet.

Once you have chosen your colour, texture and pattern, it’s time for the fun part of deciding how you will wear your scarf. I am partial to them when they are worn as turbans, head bands or secured around a ponytail. There are so many, “how to wear a scarf” instructional videos yet we  don’t frequently see them being styled this way, this is definitely a bold choice.  I believe that wearing a head scarf is always a standout option.  I also love them draped loosely around my neck and double knotted, length permitting.

  1. Great article! It is funny how as soon as the weather warms up, everyone wants to shed all their layers. I don’t have many “summer appropriate” scarves but perhaps it is because I rarely wear one in warmer weather- even my light silk ones. This is my challenge for the week, thanks!

  2. Great fashion tips…. I love scarves!!!!
    Kisses darling!!!

  3. Nice tips. When I was growing up, I loved how Mary Tyler Moore’s fictional friend Rhoda wore scarves on her head.

    1. rhoda was my favorite character! likes her more than rhoda and i think it was the scarves! she was so hip!

      1. geeze…. *liked her more than mary. wish there was an edit button!

  4. What makes summer scarves so great is their versatility, as you pointed out: one day a scarf, the next day a head wrap and so on. I love summer scarves because there is one for every woman: the rock n roll one (often long, thin and metallic), the boho one, the African print one, the luxe one etc etc

  5. I wear it on my purse…so if it gets chilly it ends up on my neck 🙂

  6. Scarves are the perfect accessories all year round! Love the look of a scarf worn as a turban. My mom used to do that all the time when we were young.

    xo, Jackie

  7. The perfect detail to upgrade a look! xxx
