Silk Scarf Wrap
Scarves are an invaluable fashion accessory all year round. Here are some ways to wear a silk scarf this spring.
There is no fashion accessory quite as versatile as the scarf. It is simultaneously practical and fashionable and can be manipulated to create and match countless looks, outfits and ensembles on any number of occasions. Each of the seasons tends to call on different materials when it comes to fashion in general but these accessories are no exception. While there are some materials, like cotton and silk, that are appropriate year round, there is something a little more special about silk. Silk can be worn no matter what the season is, but always calls for a classier look than any of the other fabrics. Adding silk instantly makes any look more sleek and a silk scarf wrap is one great way to add it to your wardrobe.
The great thing about these fashion accessories is that there is no one right way to wear them. Let your rendition of a scarf inspire the rest of your ensemble or the other way around. These simple but rich colors are perfect for spring, adding a bit of extra oomph to any rainy day. You can choose to match your outfit with the overall color of the scarf or use contrasting colors when it comes to both. Use it to brighten up an otherwise dark outfit, add a splash of color to a spring trench coat if the weather calls for it, or use it to add some fun to an office outfit. Even adding it to a more casual outfit will dress it up a little. Depending on the color of the scarf and those used in your overall outfit this accessory can add a fun touch while the silk adds some elegant texture to whatever you are wearing.
When it comes to tying or wearing this accessory, you have several options available to you. Wearing it close and tight about the neck can give you a bit of an Old Hollywood look, just as if you were to wear it over a hairdo like a kerchief. As the name suggests, you can absolutely wear this piece as a wrap around, whether it is simply draped over your shoulders or used more widely over your torso as makeshift cardigan or kimono. There are even several ways to tie this piece as a wrap, which may include simply folding it into a triangle, draping over your shoulders and tying in the front, you can wear it as a side wrap or one-shouldered wrap, or even loop and tie the ends so it makes an infinity scarf and looping it under your arms and over your neck as a makeshift cardigan which can be bunched at the shoulders for texture or draped loosely over your shoulders to look more like a kimono.

They can also be worn over other pieces, of course. A vintage look may mean wearing a corset underneath a dress of the right style, as the piece was originally intended to be used.
