May 22, 2024

Hot girls are wearing silk scarves for summer 2024. As we continue to ride the wave of the quiet luxury aesthetic and old money style made popular by Sofia Richie and a never-ending scroll of TikTok videos. The versatile, yet functional silk scarf is the perfect accessory for any summer fit. Here are seven chic ways to experiment with this burgeoning trend. —Sheila O’Neill

As a Head Scarf or Bandana

It-girl and trend-setter Elsa Hosk posted a carousel of dreamy photos from Sicily to her Instagram this week featuring a monochrome black look from her own line Helsa, completed with a large square silk head scarf.

On Your Purse

The Twilly (coined by iconic french fashion house Hermès) is a long thin scarf designed to add a pop of colour and luxury to an outfit. Most commonly the Twilly can be found wrapped ‘round the handles of Birkins or Kellys, or other handbags such as the Lady Dior.

In Your Hair

For the coquette girlies, who love a bow. The versatility of a scarf in your hair is endless, folded and tied as a headband à la Blair Waldorf, a functional, yet elegant way to sweep back a low ponytail, or braided into your hair.

Round Your Neck

The neckerchief is a sophisticated option to explore the silk scarf accessory. Aritzia has a great collection of various shapes, sizes and colours.

As a Top

TikTok sensation, Campbell “Pookie” Puckett, known for the viral OOTDs narrated by her husband Jett recently wore a YSL scarf as a top to Stagecoach festival. A fun and flirty way to incorporate this trend into your summer looks.

As a Bag

Did Chloé single-handedly bring back boho-chic with the viral image of their platform wedge sandals in the FROW? Time will tell. Whether you are on board with boho-chic (or the controversial wedge sandal), using an oversized silk scarf as your summer handbag is undeniably chic, if not a bit boho as well. This style is giving French Riviera and Italian summer. French fashion icon Jane Birkin would no doubt approve.

As a Shawl

One of the great things about a silk scarf is how easily it can be carried on you to whip out when needed. Lightweight and easily folded into a bag, take one with you as you leave on a hot summer day in case you find yourself in need of an extra layer as your day turns to night.
