Silk Scarves Are The Perfect Summer Accessory

Silk scarves are a lightweight accessory that comes in a variety of colors and patterns. You can buy them to mix and match with shirts, dresses, tank tops, and blouses. Silk scarves are a fun & easy way to add a pop of color, or pattern, to plain and casual outfits.

Contrary to belief, scarves can be worn year-round, not only in the cold or cooler months.The type of fabric is the main factor to consider when purchasing a scarf for the summer. When buying scarves, fabrics like wool, fur, and heavy cottons, are made for winter wear, not warm or hot weather.

The best fabrics for summer scarves are silk, chiffon, silk-blends, satin, and light jersey knit. Silk & silk-blends are great because they are versatile, comfortable, and accommodating to many types of weather.

Silk Scarves also come in a variety of prices, making them affordable for women of all incomes. You can save yourself time and money by knowing the colors that look good on you. Once you know your perfect colors, you'll enjoy purchasing solid and patterned silk scarves, for your summer wardrobe.

Pretty Patterned Scarves

Patterned scarves are a fun way to accessorize any outfit. One of the easiest ways to wear a patterned scarf is to start with a blank canvas. That blank canvas can be an all black, white, grey, navy, etc, outfit.

Whether it's a black top and black skirt, white top and white pants, or any plain colored dress, having only one color makes a blank canvas for a variety of patterned scarves.

Patterned scarves are also a great way to add character to any outfit. You can buy a variety of patterns that include animal prints, polka dots, stripes, geometric designs, florals, plaids, and many more.

Focus on the designs you like, even if they seem too bright or bold for you. Remember that bright & bold designs will pair well with a plain background, giving you a beautifully coordinated outfit.


Express Your Style With Solid Scarves

Solid scarves are great core pieces to match any outfit. They can also be worn as a headband, belt, necklace, and more.

As previously mentioned, know your perfect colors, and purchase scarves that easily match yourself and your wardrobe.

Solid silk scarves are versatile and can be worn with solids or multi-color clothing. When buying summer scarves, think about summer colors. Burgundy, mustard, and emerald are great colors, but look better in the fall, not summer.

Some great summer colors are in the shades of blue, yellow, orange, white, green, and pink. Have fun this summer trying out new colors and color combinations.

Ask others what colors they like best on you or watch what people with your color hair, eyes, and skin wear. Your best colors should brighten you face, not shade it.

  • Use a mild and gentle detergent that doesn't contain bleach.
  • If you need to iron your scarf, use the lowest setting.
  • Let your scarf air-dry indoors.
