Evening Scarf Styles

The once very humble scarf that hung around in the wardrobe is fast becoming the style diva of modern fashion accessories. No longer have the stylish bags and shoes got it their own way,they have to match in with the ever growing army of scarf styles. The humble scarf has been called eye candy for a new generation. So what is this all about, what should we be wearing on our evenings out and whirlwind social calendar?

“When I wear a silk scarf, I feel so definitely like a woman, a beautiful woman”

This was said by, Audrey Hepburn. It also seems that Brigitte Bardot, Grace Kelly, Catherine Deneuve and Susan Sarandon agreed with her, by constantly being seen in scarves. They wore them during the day and also at chic social functions. If it was good enough for them,then I think we should take the hint.

Evening Scarf Tips

  • Scarves add a special finishing touch; they are often the focal point of an outfit. Make the most of a plain dress, by adding a splash of colour around the neck. Create different ways to wear it by experimenting with twisting, knotting, looping and draping.
  • Scarves are relatively inexpensive, so you can have a drawer full for every season and occasions. Having said they are inexpensive, did you know that one designed by Henri Matisse, sold for 4.8 million at a Christies auction?
  • Try a Royal blue scarf with a black dress.
  • A Summer scarf will go with a cocktail dress.
  • A Darker green scarf will go with black suit type clothes, and brown or red with dark blue.
  • Try a white scarf with leather.
  • Put opposite textures together, e.g. courser coat with smooth silk scarf or smooth coat with textured fluffy scarf.
  • Use the scarf as a trendy head wrap to go with oriental style clothes.
  • Beware the rainbow scarf unless you are heading to a football match.
  • If the scarf is complex and highly coloured then the rest of what you are wearing should be more subdued.

Many top fashion designers are now including scarves in their collections, for us it is all about being your own stylist. A spokesman for Bloomingdales puts the rise in interest in scarves down to a world, where every purchase has now more than one function. The scarf covers numerous possibilities both as a fashion statement, weather protection and also as a religious head cover.

“Our faces are lies, and our necks are the truth.”

Perfect Party Scarf Knots

Scarves are an absolute fashion accessory must. Not only do they come in almost endless designs, patterns, colours, shapes and sizes but they can also be worn in a number of different ways. In fact how you wear your scarf can be almost important as the style of the scarf itself. If you’re going to a party, scarves can be the perfect way to enhance a party outfit, particularly if you tie it in an appropriate manner. To ensure your scarf is knotted befittingly for a party take a look at the following different knots that can be used for parties.

The Bandana-Style Party Scarf

The summer is here and there couldn’t be a cooler way to show up to a party than with your scarf tied in a bandanna-like way. Simply fold your scarf in half (a scarf that’s on the slimmer side works better in a bandana-style knot), centre the scarf around the nape of your neck, collect each side above one ear, tie a double knot and either let the ends hang loosely down one side or twist the sides and tuck them in. Either way, a funky summertime look is achieved through your scarf that is perfect for a party.

Wearing A Hijab Scarf To A Party

If you’re looking for a tasteful, classy and ultra-glamorous accessory to wear to a forthcoming party then look no further than an eveningwear hijab. These elegant headscarves will bring a new dimension to a classy evening gown of glitzy party dress. But how do you tie a beautiful eveningwear hijab?

This easy-to-follow hijab tutorial provides you with a step by step guide on how to tie a hijab whilst retaining a gorgeous, stunning look. What’s particularly great about this tutorial is that it teaches you how to fasten a beautiful silk hijab with a pair of ultra-glam, dangly earrings – Could there be a more appropriate way to tie a knot in a hijab for a party?

The Celebrity Style

Turning up at a party dressed like a celebrity is always going to be well-received so it makes sense to tie your scarf using the celebrity style. For this knotting technique to be most effective you’ll need an eye-catching and striking scarf, the kind the likes of Angelina Jolie or Kate Moss could easily be photographed in. Simply wrap the scarf around your neck twice and then tuck one end around the knot, like the technique used on the tutorial above. And there you have it, a scarf look for for not just a party but the celebrity circuit too!

Décor that spills into the attire of the bride and groom, bridesmaids or even the guests always goes down well at a wedding. Scarves could be the perfect accessory to bridge the gap between wedding décor and garb. For example, if the décor at your wedding is dominated by snazzy shades of purple, unite the furnishings with the guests by asking them to wear an eye-catching purple scarf.

3- Classic Bridesmaids’ Shawls

If there is one group at a wedding that can afford to be flamboyant, it’s the bridesmaids. Adorning your bridesmaids in elegant bridal shawls will create a classy and chic look, not to mention help keep the chill off their shoulders.

If you’re intent on not going down the ‘conventional’ route at your wedding and want to add some burlesque fun, feather scarves adorned round the neck of the bride, bridesmaid and even the guests will add some playful flamboyance to your wedding.

9- A Prayer Shawl

Who said the groom couldn’t accentuate his style by wearing a scarf of some form on his wedding day? Prayer shawls can make a man look effortlessly cool and stylish at a wedding. Take a look at the wedding ceremony of Chelsea Clinton and Marc Mezvinsky. The couple looked fantastic, Chelsea wearing a Vera Wang strapless dress and Marc wearing a prayer shawl and Jewish yarmulke .

10- Matching Bridesmaids with Bride

Wedding attire that equates the bridesmaids with the brides is always a nice touch. Scarves can make a subtle connection between bride and bridesmaids. Opt for a colour that will suit and enhance the bridal gown and the bridesmaids dresses. For example, a plain light yellow pashmina would make a stylish addition to a white wedding gown as well as complementing darker bridesmaids dresses.
