"When I wear a silk scarf, I never feel so definitely like a woman, a beautiful woman." ----Audrey Hepburn

As the symbol of elegance and social status, silk scarves have existed in the closet of royalties for hundreds of years; but it is not until the 20th century that they became widely used by women in the every walk of life. From then on, the real charm of silk scarf has been demonstrated and illustrated by modern femininity in dazzling ways. Since wearing colored scarves as headscarves is very trendy this summer, I’ll introduce a few fashionable and useful ways of tying the small square silk scarves that Audrey Hepburn liked so much.

The first one, of course, is Hepburn’s favorite—the Hollywood style.

This style is classic and useful—wonderful choice for girls with short hair. By wearing a thicker silk scarf, you can use it to keep warm in the winter, while during the summer time this style is useful for blocking the glaring sunshine and protecting your hair. Of course, if your new haircut is a complete disaster, this style can be your ultimate rescuer! The Hollywood style also goes well with sunglasses.

Still remember Alice in the second Twilight movie? Her silk scarf with red floral print is a perfect match with her red leather gloves and black sunglasses. Of course, you don’t need to wrap yourselves up like her in the summer. After all, you are more sun-resistant than a vampire chic.

The second style is called "head wrap".

If you go to vacation by the sea and the naughty wind messes your hair all up, you may want to try this "head wrap" style and curb your hair a little bit. The key point of doing this style is the third step, where you should bring the corners of the triangle to the back your head and tie them up tightly above the scarf’s point.

Compared with the Hollywood style, the head wrap also provides protection against the sun, but your hair is not all wrapped up inside the scarf. As a result, this one is especially suitable for girls with long, voluminous and curly hair. With the right match of scarf and hair color, it could give you the air of a sexy pirate girl tinged with elegance.

The third one is wearing your silk scarf as headband.

Replacing your ordinary headband with a nice silk scarf is a good way to add color to your whole outfit and elevate your taste. Based on the pattern and thickness of your silk scarf, you can fashion out different styles to go with different occasions, such as school, party or even workplace.

By using silk scarves as accessories in the right way, your can light up your whole outfit and create a distinctive personal style. The colorful patterns of silk scarves represent the imaginative and romantic souls of women, while the great texture of silk radiates the elegance of femininity. Why not get a few scarves this summer and become a stylish and elegant modern lady?
