Silk is an elegant material and makes for a great professional or simply polished accessory. Here are some ways this little accessory can be made useful.
There are few fashion accessories that are just as cute as they are practical and scarves are more than likely the most useful of any accessory you can possibly own. They look cute and chic, they can add dimension and depth to an outfit, they can protect your head, neck and shoulders from the chill or breeze, and can make a makeshift headscarf or wrap if you need them to. They look great with summer outfits or tucked under coats and are perfect for practically any season or any type of weather. But is there a scarf that helps you look elegant, too?
For a much classier and professional look, the silk scarf is your best accessory. Its silky sheen makes any look appear much more polished and put together, which is great for the workplace, a big interview, or other more formal events. It can sometimes be a difficult task to properly accessorize for a more professional atmosphere but silk scarves provide a means to have fun and still look appropriate for the atmosphere.
The material is more delicate but also leaves room for you to play around with color and print, depending on what you happen to be wearing, of course. You can opt for the ever classic black or go for more neutral colors if you are unsure of what would go best. These options are always great backups regardless. But since the material is already work appropriate, feel free to mix and match with bold spring and summer colors like radiant orchid or pale yellow that will add a splash of color to your office ensemble. Prints and patterns look great too, especially when on silk. Play around with color and either wear a printed scarf with a neutral outfit or use some of the colors in the pattern to use in other accessories like shoes, jewelry or outfit accents as inspiration.
And don’t forget, these handy fashion accessories can be tied in countless ways to yield countless different looks. Tie it tightly around your neck, wear it loose, use it as a kerchief, drape it over your shoulders or wear it like a shawl. Whatever works best with your outfit and the conditions you are in. Having even one silk scarf can create an endless amount of office ensembles to help you truly maximize your wardrobe and mix things up every now and again.
