Scarves are one of the most versatile pieces in your wardrobe and can be worn in all manner of ways. From tied around your head to the nonchalant drape around your neck, every outfit can be dressed up or down with the addition of a beautiful silk scarf. We are taking a look at how the icons, past and present, wear theirs for some for some inspiration on how to wear ours.
1. Audrey Hepburn
Some of Audrey Hepburn’s signature looks included a beautiful silk scarf to complete the outfit. The classic head scarf tied under the chin has never looked so chic, complete with large sunnies to boost the glamour. Audrey Hepburn was also a fan of the simple neck tie which adds a subtle twist on a classic outfit.
2. Brigitte Bardot
Brigitte Bardot’s cool french style is effortless and an inspiration for many fashionistas today. From the boho style she’s rocking here to the classic head scarf tied under the chin, this is a perfect example of a scarf altering the look of an outfit instantly.
3. Keith Richards
The iconic rocker is known for his stylish accessorising and the silk scarf is never excluded from an outfit. Whether it is tied in his hair or left loose for an effortlessly cool look, Keith is always a good person to look to for scarf inspiration!
4. Carrie Bradshaw / SJP
Carrie Bradshaw, the queen of New York style definitely knows a thing or two about rocking a head scarf and is inspiration when you are not quite feeling brave enough to wear a head scarf one day.
5. Harry Styles
Harry Styles may have copied our other scarf icon Keith Richards but it would be rude not to include such an avid scarf wearer. Harry has definitely realised the benefits of adding a scarf to a simple outfit for bonus style points.
6. The Queen
Not only the queen of the United Kingdom but also the queen of head scarves. Besides being a practical option on a windy day to keep your curls in place, a colourful scarf on your head is a great way to add a bit of colour and pattern into an outfit.
