When it’s so hot, you can barely fathom getting dressed, look no further than your scarf drawer. What’s most often used as an accessory for your swan-like neck or on the handle of your handbag makes a surprisingly cute impromptu top. Here are some of my favorite silk scarves that would be fun to fashion into tops, or to wear in your hair, alongside giant sunnies, as you cruise down the road in your vintage convertible (dream). Plus, 7 ways to use silk scarves!

Silk Scarf Summer

I fell down the rabbit hole of silk scarves while writing this post. There are just so many great patterns and colors out there!

While this exact silk scarf has since sold out, I linked several that I love below.

Do you have a favorite?

As previously mentioned, you can use silk scarves so many ways.

7 Ways to Use Silk Scarves

1. Around your neck

2. Around the handle of your handbag

3. As a head scarf

4. As a top

5. As a belt

6. Around your wrist (smaller bandanas work best)

7. As a ponytail holder

The options are endless.

Plus, silk scarves make great gifts!

I have a whole drawer dedicated to them and tend to scoop them up when vintage shopping or traveling.

Do you love silk scarves too?

Do you have any favorite ways to wear them?

Here I’m wearing my silk scarf with a cute orange skirt (love this one too!) and a frayed straw hat, with my trusty white heart sunglasses that are YSL dupes for under $10.
