We have already gone over how men can properly wear a silk scarf. While many of these same scarf knots are great for women's fashion, there are several other practices for wearing silk scarves that are unique to women. Here are a few common ways women add silk scarves to their outfits.
How to Wear a Silk Scarf in Your Hair
A unique way women wear silk scarves is to tie them in their hair. If you tie your hair in a bun, you can wrap a silk scarf around the base and then tuck in the ends, making a nice silk bundle. If you prefer ponytails, you can simply tie the scarf at the base of the ponytail and let the ends of the scarf hang down your back. You can even wear a silk scarf like a head band, knotting it on top of your head or at the nape of your neck.
How to Tie a Silk Scarf to a Purse
Many women who accessorize with and wear silk scarves will often tie them to the handles of their purses as a unique way to add colour and texture to their handbags. You can use any knot to tie your silk scarf to a purse. You can even tie a bow tie. But it would probably be better to tie a knot that keeps the end of your silk scarf short so as to keep them from hanging too low.
Feminine Ways to Wear a Silk Scarf
Some unique ways of styling a silk scarf look better on women than men. The most common example is tying your silk scarf so that the loose ends are off center, like a 50s style where you roll up your silks scarf, turn it once around your neck, and tie it to one side. There is also a more 1920s style where you tie the knot at the back of your neck.
