How to Wear a Scarf with a Dress

We’ve talked enough about how to wear a scarf with a blazer, a suit, in winter or during summer. But when talking about fashion that involves scarves you cannot miss out on an inseparable combination which is that of a dress and scarf. Dresses are a must-have for summer fashion. Dress is something that is easy to slip into, flowy, easy-breezy, and perfect for the hot weather. Isn’t wearing a dress a little too basic at times? Here’s where scarves come to your rescue. And if you’re wondering how to wear a scarf with a dress? Or how to style a scarf with a dress? We’ve got all the answers for you. There are a number of ways you can use a scarf to elevate your day or night look.

The Classic Knot

A statement red silk scarf can be worn with a dress simply by draping it over your shoulders, it makes a simple dress stand out so much more. You can also tie it in a simple knot around your neck and let the ends hang in front of you, if you want the outfit to look a little informal you can just let the ends be asymmetrical and the job’s done. Rolling up your silk scarf and wearing it around your neck, tying it in front, is one way to create a nice outfit with a dress if you have a short or smaller silk scarf.

The Scarf Kimono

Did you know that you can wear a beautiful floral blue scarf as a kimono jacket over your favorite summer dress? Gurl if you didn’t you have to try this out. It is a simple 3-step process

  • First fold the scarf into two equal parts
  • Now take the two loose ends and tie them into a tight knot
  • Lastly all you have to do is open up the scarf where you’ll find two open sleeves in which you can place your hand and wear it as a jacket or a kimono.

Now you know how to wear a floral silk scarf as a kimono with a dress by tying a large scarf into a jacket, giving it a completely refreshed look altogether, this is what you tell the next time someone asks you what to do with their boring old scarf!

The Bulky Style

When you’re stuck with a long grey scarf what are you gonna do with it? You can’t just tie it up to your hair like a headband or bandana, right? What you can do is do a bulky turtle neck pattern. This is the easiest and simplest way to drape a scarf. All you have to do is drape the entire stole in a messy pattern completely covering your entire neck in a circular fashion. This might be a little new and uncomfortable for you at the start but trust me this could make a super casual look high fashion and you wouldn’t even know it!

An Extra Layer of Texture

This could mean many things, you could add an extra layer as a jacket, or as an extra accessory on your dress but of all things, this means using the scarf as a statement piece by styling it along with a belt of a brooch. You can just take a long silk scarf, and throw it on over your shoulder with both sides equally falling on the side. Now that you’ve done that just add a belt on top of it at the tiniest part of your waist and voila! Your dress is nothing close to basic now.
