How to Wear a Chiffon Scarf

Wearing a chiffon scarf is a fast-track way to brighten up and add style to any outfit. So how do you wear a chiffon scarf? I’ve put together a style guide to give you a few ideas but if you have other ways please feel free to pop them in the comments.
I chose the Deco Zig Zag scarf from Fox & Chave because I felt it would lend itself to lots of different outfits and colours. It could work just as well with a red dress as it does with this white sweatshirt and jeans. Fox & Chave had a huge range of beautiful silk and chiffon scarves or ladies as well as silk ties for men. There is something for everyone and they are delivered beautifully packaged making them the ideal gift too.
Fold the scarf along the length until you have a long thin band, hold the middle of the scarf at the top of your head and tie at the back of your neck leaving loose hair at the front.
2. Floppy Bow
Fold the scarf along it’s length to make a long thin band, tie from underneath the hair and tie into a floppy bow on the side of the head for a girly look.
3. Loose Neckerchief
This method works best with a square chiffon scarf which can be folded into a triangle. With a rectangular chiffon scarf, it’s a little trickier but still doable by folding in half to form a shorter rectangle and tying at the back of the neck making sure you pull the point down at the front.
4. Bun Scrunchie
Style the hair into a bun and wrap the scarf around the base. You can either wrap until you reach the ends and tuck them in as I have done here or left the ends loose and tie into a bow at the back.
5. Chiffon Scarf Braid
Admittedly I did find this one a little tricky to do by myself but I’m also rubbish at doing my own hair! Tie the hair into a low pony like I did if you’re not the best self-hairdresser and then tie the scarf around the ponytail and plait into your hair OR if you’re good, tie the scarf to a strand of your hair and plait for a loose plait.
6. Scarf Choker
Fold the chiffon scarf along its length until you end up with a long thin strip, loosely wrap around your neck and secure with a knot at the back.
7. Headband #2
Fold scarf into a long thin strip and secure with a knot underneath the hair at the back of the neck. Position on the forehead for a neat, stylish look.
8. Top-Knot Updo
Style hair into an updo, this was a messy chignon secured with pins. Tie the chiffon scarf with the ends to the top and secured in a large knot.
9. Twisted Headband
Style the hair up or down to your taste. Fold the chiffon scarf along it’s length until you have a long thin scarf. Hold the centre of the scarf at the nape of the neck and pull the scarf up to the top of the head, twist the scarf ends around each other to form a twist and then tie back at the bottom and tuck the ends of the scarf in.
10. Tie to your bag
This is something I do if I am going out in the day and heading straight out into the evening so want to change up my look. I tie the scarf to a contrasting bag for the daytime in a knot or bow and then in the evening I take it off the bag and wear in my hair or around my neck for a more dressed up look.
So how would you wear yours?
