The Steele Maiden: 4 Ways to Style a Silk Scarf for Fall

I’ve been talking a lot about Fall trends – and while i’m all for a new season and new fashion, I also like finding small ways to update the pieces already in my wardrobe. One of the ways I’m most excited about this season is adding a silk scarf to my outfits. The obvious way is tied around your neck, but after picking up this printed Italian silk scarf a few weeks ago I’ve been finding all sorts of ways to wear it. It’s a small touch that I think makes a big impact, without a big investment this season.

The Steele Maiden: 4 Ways to Style a Silk Scarf for Fall

1. THE HANDBAG ACCENT

Start by folding the square scarf in half to form a triangle. Then, starting with the longest side, fold over into 2″ wide strips and keep ‘rolling’ until you’ve got a long skinny rectangle with pointed ends. Fold the rectangle in half once more (so that the pointed ends are now touching), wrap around the bag handle and pull the pointed ends through the loop that you’ve created. Voila!

2. THE CHOKER

Start by folding the square scarf in half to form a triangle. Then, starting with the longest side, fold over into 2″ wide strips and keep ‘rolling’ until you’ve got a long skinny rectangle with pointed ends. Wrap around your neck twice and finish with the pointed ends tied into a small knot in the front. Pull the scarf more open if you like a ‘wider’ choker.

3. THE PRETTY PONYTAIL

Start by folding the square scarf in half to form a triangle. Then, starting with the longest side, fold over into 2″ wide strips and keep ‘rolling’ until you’ve got a long skinny rectangle with pointed ends. Once hair is secured into a ponytail, put the center of your folded scarf underneath the ponytail, and wrap around your hair tie a few times to shorten the length. Then tie is a knot at the top of the ponytail. Secure underneath with a hidden bobby pin if you feel the silk scarf will slip out of your hair.

4. THE FRENCH LOOP

The easiest of all four options. Start by folding the square scarf in half to form a triangle. Then, starting with the longest side, fold over into 2″ wide strips and keep ‘rolling’ until you’ve got a long skinny rectangle with pointed ends. Wrap once around your neck and tie into a simple looped knot in the front. Done!
