With all the snow we are getting here you’d think we were in the midwest or something. I like snow, but it’s time to move on and bring in spring!
Like many of us, my mind is on sunny and warmer days. Obviously that means a change of wardrobe and transitioning to lighter and less bulky clothing. One of the first things that I have already changed is my scarf selection.
Truthfully, I’m over infinity scarves and this spring I’ll be brining back the square silk scarf.
The square cut is quite easy to style and a chic and classy option to the longer scarf — my mother wore these when growing up and it’s a look I’ve always liked and wore a few years back.
While looking around a quaint vintage shop in Del Ray, Alexandria called Amalgamated I came across a rack of square silk scarves. I was instantly drawn to their vibrant colors and delicate floral patterns on this particular one. Turns out, this one is real silk circa 1940’s and the other square silk scarf (not shown) is from the 1960’s.
3 Ways to Style a Square Silk Scarf this Spring
Fold scarf into a triangle and then tie around neck like a necklace placing pattern or design in the center. Shift scarf to show off the ties at the back for a messy chic look. Great over t-shirts and to cover up any stains!
Channel your inner Bridget Jones or Betty Draper
First thing I thought of was Bridget driving down a country road with Daniel on the way for their “mini holiday” and her hair blowing in the wind despite having a square silk scarf. Then I thought of Betty Draper back from running errands and lighting a cigarette. Either way, love this classic look!
Bow or Knot?
Lay square silk scarf flat and fold into a narrow “strip.” Place around your neck and tie. Try the bow look by tying it at the center and wearing it with the puffy ends or wear knotted at the side for a sleeker look.
