You might think that wearing anything other than a necktie or a bowtie with a suit would be inappropriate. But indeed you can replace those with a designer silk scarf and still look very good wearing a suit. Here is some advice on wearing a designer silk scarf with a suit.
How to Match a Silk Scarf with a Suit
Most suits are of neutral colours, like black, navy blue, or grey. These are colours that go well with virtually any other colour. The shading of your silk designer scarf should fall somewhere between that of your suit and your shirt. A silk designer scarf can match you suit but shouldn't match your shirt or it will fade into the background of your outfit.
You can even try to match your designer silk scarf with a matching or similarly shaded pocket square to maximize the cohesion of your outfit. Check out our article on how to wear a pocket square for more inspiration on matching silk fashion accessories with patterned pocket squares.
Should You Wear a Scarf Over or Under Your Suit?
For the most part, people wear silk designer scarves over their suits. But whether or not you want to wear a silk designer scarf over or under your suit is up to you. Silk scarves are excellent for however you want to wear them due to their lightness and thinness.
If you like having a designer silk scarf tied tight or draped around your neck, you can probably get away with wearing it under your suit. If you prefer having a looser loop around your neck, then you should wear your silk scarf over your suit.
