A scarf is no longer just to keep the neck warm, it ranks alongside other must have fashion accessories. It can be colour coordinated to match your dress, playful as a throw on, or the perfect winter warmer that still looks good. No need to make do with one, here are five scarves that should have a place in your wardrobe;

Natural flower inspired designs and animal prints, have always looked good on silk scarves. They can be subtle tones or colours, such as pale blue and pink, or bold colours with defined patterns. Our natural designs both vintage,and more intentionally funky and modern,vibrate with colour, yet are also very sophisticated and stylish.

Take a look at our wonderful range of long silk scarves in incredibly vibrant colours. The orange flower print scarf dazzles, whilst the leopard print silk scarf, is dramatic in black,grey and white.You can wear these casually or with your best outfit to create a chic effect. A colourful silk scarf is the ideal summer accessory, complimenting flowing light summer dresses.

For the younger look that would go well with casual jumpers and even fashion jeans, and calf length boots, what about a brown, black or blue frayed scarf, not only warm, but can be wrapped around in a casual rough manner, for the perfect bohemian look. This scarf is a mix of streamline and scruffy. It is robust enough to keep you warm but flyaway enough to make you feel good.

For keeping really warm, but not losing out on the image front,what about a great big knitted scarf, full of nice warming tints. The wonderful brown scarf with chunky textured stripe patterns,and tasty warm orange and beige designs, will look good over thick jumpers or coats and will add a touch of colour to the drabbest day.

It is good to have a scarf that looks smart and elegant but not overdressed. Something that you can wear with sophisticated suits or jackets and coats. Check and tartan scarves, look functional but stylish at the same time. They give you the no nonsense girl about business look.

The Pashmina is definitely in these days. It is an essential accessory to any girl’s wardrobe. In many ways it is almost seen as a main item of clothing rather than a scarf, as it can hang over a large upper body area, draping down in folds and tassels depending on the style. There are lots of variations which will go with numerous outfits, and you can have fun matching everything up.

Don’t be scared to experiment with combinations and colours, most scarves are relatively inexpensive and therefore you can slowly build up a collection for every eventuality. Take some time to look through our extensive collection to find the ones that best suit your needs.

Get The Perfect Evening Look With a Bolero Scarf

The bolero scarf entwines the practicalities of a scarf with the elegance of a shawl impeccably. Void of the bulk of shawls and certain types of scarves, boleros are the perfect accessory to wear on a glamorous evening event. Coming in a myriad of styles, colours, shapes and sizes, boleros cater for an equally as diverse amount of looks and occasions. If it’s glamour, elegance and enchantment you’re after, take a look at the following ways boleros can help you create the perfect evening look.

Bohemian Glamour

Society has long adored the electric mix of boho chic and rock chick. Think Deborah Harry, Courtney Love, Kate Moss and Gwen Stafani, all of which have often sported bohemian glamour with divine results.

Accessories play an essential role in the bohemian glamour and no more so than the bolero. Take for example, a fluffy black bolero scarf. Slipping such a soft-feeling and elegant-looking bolero around your neck, shoulders and arms will craft a unique boho style and make you feel like a million dollars.

These versatile boleros are fun to wear and will make a glamorous addition to virtually any outfit. Though when worn with a pair of skinny, five-inch stilettos and a rock chick top, a bohemian-style bolero will really come into its own.

Elegant ‘Princess-esque’ Glamour

Who could ever forget when the Princess fashionista Kate Middleton was photographed wearing a white angora bolero during her wedding reception in 2011? The bride looked utterly stunning and her look was recreated by the masses on an international scale. Kate’s white angora bolero complemented her silk white dress impeccably, injecting effortless elegance into a fundamentally traditional dress.

The exquisite look Kate seemed to effortlessly achieve can be replicated by accompanying your evening attire with a beautiful bolero scarf. Slipping your arms inside the soft, skin-hugging bolero will make you feel like royalty yourself – the perfect accessory to augment elegant, Princess-like glamour on a night out.

If It’s Good Enough For Victoria Beckham…

With her skin-tight leather trousers, huge designer handbag and even bigger designer sunglasses, if there is one celebrity in knows how to get the paparazzi in a flurry of excitement through her choice of fashion, it’s Victoria Beckham.

The fashion designer really pulled out all the stops when she stepped out in a stunning brown bolerao accompanying her skin-tight leather trousers. You too could replicate this ultra-glam yet elegant look by wearing a glamorous fluffy brown bolero on your night on the town. Not only will you enjoy the warmth these versatile accessories provide, but you’ll reach glamour heights that are normally confined to the likes of Ms Middleton and Ms Moss!

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!

Hottest Scarf Celeb Looks

Why do celebrities look so darn good? Is it their glossy hair? Their high cheek bones? Legs that seem to go on for miles perhaps? Or is it their choice of fashion? Celebrities do look good, period, and as not all celebrities are born with a natural size 6 figure and skin as smooth and blemish-free as a baby’s bottom, we have to assume it’s their distinct and enviable sense of fashion that propels them to goddess-looking domains.

Accessories play a pivotal role in a celebrity’s style wardrobe and none more so than scarves. Have a look at the following hottest scarf celebrity looks.

Heidi Klum’s Bohemian-Style Scarf Glamour

Okay so we said celebrities aren’t born with legs that go on for infinity and cheek bones that defy gravity but we’ll make an exception for Heidi Klum. Asides her natural good looks, the stunning model boasts an impeccably great sense of style.

This style was typified on camera recently at an airport in Cannes, where Heidi was snapped in a stylish printed jumpsuit, a short black leather jacket, topped off perfectly with a black and yellow printed scarf. We have to admit that this leather jacket, printed jumpsuit and brightly-coloured patterned scarf combo is one of the hottest celebrity scarf looks ever caught on camera!

Katie Holmes Denim On Denim

Not many can get away with wearing denim on denim. For us mere mortals wearing a denim shirt or jacket with denim jeans would make us look like a tad of a hill billy! Celebrities don’t seem to have the same problem, particularly not Katie Holmes. Perhaps Ms Holmes’ managed to pull off the multi-denim look with such enviable passion and conviction by breaking up the jeans and denim shirt with a colourful patchwork scarf.

The beautiful long silk scarf sported a plethora of patterns in pink, blue and cream. Kate wrapped the lengthy scarf once around her neck and let the ends hang loosely, almost reaching her knee – some feat when you’re 5 foot 9!

Sarah Michelle Gellar

Isn’t it almost uncanny how celebrities still manage to look incredible when they are pregnant or not long become a mum? Sarah Michelle Gellar is certainly no stranger to gaining attention through her great looks and fantastic sense of fashion even when wrapped up in the joys of motherhood. One of the hottest celebrity scarf looks has to be Sarah Michelle’s ultra-casual but incessantly cool outfit she wore whilst spending time with her daughter in LA. The star wore a black maxi dress and cropped denim jacket. The look was really brought to life by a beautiful purple and blue scarf the actress had tied around her neck. The scarf was ruffled seductively in what appears to be loosely wrapped around her neck with the ends left hanging alluringly down the front of the black maxi dress.

With so many colours, patterns, materials and styles of scarves on offer, with a little fashion creativity and imagination, you too can achieve a hot celebrity look this summer by making a scarf part of your outfit.

It was a chilling spring day when the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge visited Dumfries House in Ayrshire last year. As the royal couple went to greet the throng of locals that had gathered at the house, Kate looked typically stunning, her bright orange, knee-length Armani woollen coat, high black boots and suede black gloves really ensured the Duchess stood out. Though we have to admit what really stole the show was the beautiful tartan scarf Kate wore tumbling down the front of her coat. Kate’s tan checked scarf was tied in one simple knot round her neck with the ends of the scarf left to hang down.

The ‘Kate Middleton scarf look’ can be achieved by wearing a warm and handsome tan tartan scarf in a skip knot round the neck and left on the outside of the coat.

Take a look at this stunning white, lacy head scarf Diana wore to an event. Her look has been replicated by millions around the world, including Kate Middleton herself. Kate has been known to emulate Diana’s style in the past and looked strikingly similar to the late Princess when she donned a beautiful white headscarf on an event in Kuala Lumpar, Malaysia.

1- Pashmina Scarves

There is something about an elegant and sophisticated pashmina scarf that exudes a radiant and compelling style. One of the best components of pashminas is that they can be worn in many different ways and make a stylish addition to every woman’s wardrobe. Being chic and warm these versatile scarves are particularly valuable in the winter.

OK so the nights might be getting slightly lighter but the warmer weather of spring is still a long way off. Faux fur is a fantastic material for the winter and one that never ceases to go out of fashion. With this lovely soft fabric lay against your skin and the luxury look this type of scarf denotes, you’ll feel a million dollars wearing something like our Grey Rose Faux Fur Scarf.

3- Colourful Silk Scarves

It’s never too long before a celebrity gets ‘papped’ wearing a stunningly colourful silk scarf. From Sharon Stone and Kylie Minogue to Sienna Miller and Vanessa Hudgens, colourful women’s silk scarves augment a woman’s beauty and fashion know-how. The modern trend is to wear this ‘must have’ fashion accessory tied in a simple knot around the neck.

4- Animal Print Scarves

Once synonymous with Bet Lynch in Coronation Street, animal print is now regarded an eye-catching fashion statement. A lady’s wardrobe should be all about turning heads and nothing is quite as striking as an animal print scarf. Being typically made out of polyester or cotton, these animal print scarves can be worn all year round, helping keep the chill out in the winter and weaving style into a summer outfit.

5- Hijab Scarves

For a special occasion in which only classic elegance will suffice, wearing a women’s hijab will intensify the glamour of the occasion. Worn around the head, a stylish hijab will frame the face, defining the eyes and drawing out key features – It’s no wonder hijabs are becoming a more mainstream fashion staple.

6- Paisley Scarves

With spring approaching – albeit slowly – it’s time to start thinking about our springtime wardrobes. Being pretty, delicate and feminine, a beautiful paisley scarf made out of cotton, viscose or another lightweight material, is an essential item for stylish spring attire.

7- Striped Scarves

Whether you want to add some colour and life to a dark suit or bring a creative touch to a plain maxi dress, a striped scarf will speak volumes. The greatest part about stripes is that they go with a myriad of outfits and will knit life and vitality into the plainest the clothing.

8- Luxury Velvet Scarves

As mentioned earlier we are still very much in the thick of winter and if there’s one type of scarf you can rely on keeping you warm whilst maintaining style, it’s the velvet ruffle scarf. Fitting snugly into your neck this luxurious material will make you feel like royalty and its smart and graceful exterior will ensure you look as grand and stately as you feel.

9- Rock Chic Scarves

The great thing about the rock chic look is that you don’t have to be in your 20s to ‘get away with it’. Think Debbie Harry, Courtney Love and Madonna, they all look great in their daringly different rock chic outfits. Wearing a rock chic scarf will augment your alternative look, no matter how old – or young – you are.

10- Floral Scarves

From dainty daisies in the summer to darker floral in the winter, floral scarves come in many different materials, colours and patterns. One component of floral scarves does however remain consistent – they make an eye-catching fashion statement and are a type of scarf every woman should own.

Top 10 Wedding Scarf Looks

The great thing about scarves is that they can be incorporated into any look. From adding colour and additional style to a maxi dress to injecting some life in to a smart suit, you can always rely on a scarf to glamorise an outfit. At a wedding, scarves can be used to set a theme and bring a bespoke touch to traditional attire. If you are thinking about making scarves a stand-out feature at your wedding, take a look at the following ten wedding scarf looks.

1- The Vintage Look

Vintage weddings in which the bride looks like a 1950s movie star are all the rage these days. Scarves are synonymous with vintage glamour, so why not integrate them into your wedding? Augment your stunning lace, 50s dress with a retro silk scarf and by doing so you’ll create a unique and bespoke vintage style.

2- Scarves to Match Decor

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.

4- Feather Scarves for Flamboyancy & Fun

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.

5- An Animal Print Wedding Theme

There is something both sexy and sophisticated about animal print. If you and your soon-to-be-husband have a mutual fondness for animal print and are planning an animal print theme at your wedding, compliment the leopard print wedding cake by wearing a leopard print scarf.

6- Beautiful Bridal Hijabs

A hijab crafts an aura of mystery and intrigue. Why leave the enigma of hijabs at home on your wedding day? Bridal hijabs are simply stunning and can be adorned in jewels, turning the bride into a true princess on her wedding day.

7- Cream Pashminas

Whether it’s the bridesmaid dresses or the bridal gown, cream goes hand in hand with a wedding. Why confine the cream theme to the dresses? Really go to town with the beauty of cream by wearing an cream pashmina.

8- The Luxury Look

From a luxury wedding venue to lavish flower bouquets embellished on the walls, if your forthcoming wedding is designed to exude the lavishness of a royal wedding complement your bridal dress with a stunning silk pashmina scarf. A colourful pashmina will inject some stylish vibrancy to a traditional dress of white, cream, ivory or pale pink.

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.

Cool New Winter Accessories

Warm, stylish winter accessories can make a cold winter so much more bearable so here at Scarfworld we are stocking up on just that. Gloves, hats and scarves might seem unimportant but when it’s cold outside and your favourite clothes are obscured by a boring winter coat, a few stylish winter accessories will definitely make a difference! No one wants to freeze, but in my opinion there is no need to suffer bland winter style – even if you can’t afford to splash out on a whole new wardrobe, new winter accessories are the perfect way to update your look AND stay warm on a daily basis.

New Winter Gloves Accessories

I love these new winter gloves. These fingerless gloves are really warm and cosy – you can wear them pulled up or scrunch them down around your wrist for a relaxed but very cosy look. These fingerless gloves come in lots of different colours and they are a great way to brighten up your outfit. I wear my blue ones on a daily basis and they provide a much needed flash of colour with my winter coat. I also wear them indoors if it is particularly chilly – our office can take a while to warm up in the mornings! Because they are fingerless, I can still get on with my work, without having freezing fingers.
