GUIDE TO THE CLASSIC SCARF

How to wear it four ways

SHOP SCARVES

Whether you fold it, knot it at your collar, or use it to embellish your favourite bag, the silk scarf is a timeless accessory that instantly updates your wardrobe. Yet, far too many women find themselves scared off by this stylish staple. Don’t sweat it! Wearing a scarf is a skill anyone can master, and there’s a scarf style that suits all personal tastes.

Here are four classic - not to mention, easy to wear - ways a scarf can add a sense of chic elegance to your look:

THE NECK TIE

Instantly give any outfit a modern, sophisticated twist with a silk neck tie. Dress up a white button-down with confidence or transform your cocktail dress with a pop of colour and daring-do.

For Vogue fashion writer Harriet Quick, the neck tie, “when whisked around one's neck underneath a collarless dinner shirt or with a skimpy little tea dress, adds a dose of insouciance.”

From Oroton’s catalogue: Our Signature Silk Scarf is the epitome of effortless chic. Complement your outfit or bag with this 100% silk scarf in our distinctive “O” pattern.

HANDLE ON IT

A little cheeky, a little witty - this style’s cropping up at springtime Fashion Weeks across the globe.

“Try casually tying one onto the strap of your favourite carryall or intricately wrapping it around the top handle of a satchel - and that's just for starters,” suggests InStyle fashion editor Wendy Wallace.

“This is a creative and easy way to take your accessory game to the next level without having to go out and buy something new.”

Differentiate yourself in a fun, modern way by tying a silk scarf to the handle of your leather bag. It’s a style that’s distinctly yours.

From Oroton’s catalogue: Knot a beautiful silk scarf onto a worthy bag, like our Forte Tote or our Hockney Medium Satchel.

UNDER WRAPS

Revamp a tried and true leather satchel by wrapping a silk scarf around the handle, knotting the ends at the base.

According to ELLE UK, this look was all over the runway at AW17, including styles from Balenciaga and Céline.

“If you’re yet to use one to accessorise your accessories,” write the editors, “then take note of these rules.”

From Oroton’s catalogue: What’s a beautiful silk scarf without a versatile leather tote to help you showcase your style? Our Avalon Medium Tote is made from fine, pebble grain leather and has plenty of room for all your daily accessories.

CALL TO ARMS

Even our favourite outfits deserve an individualistic flourish for a picture-perfect finish. Knotting a silk scarf at your wrist is just such a trick.

“This styling method works best with smaller scarves or pocket squares (for obvious reasons), so go ahead—march yourself into that men's store and stock up on all the best colours and patterns,” suggests Glamour’s fashion editor Avery Matera.

“They look better on us, anyway!”

From Oroton’s catalogue: Our Signature Silk Scarf is bright and bold for spring - and it’s 100% silk, of course. The perfect way to show you’re oh-so-on-trend.
