Having to dress for the office can become slightly tedious – the same smart business suits day in and day out. With the addition of a gorgeous hand painted silk scarf, however, you can create a wonderful range of different looks and add interest and color to your whole outfit.
Hand painted silk scarves, as opposed to the printed alternatives, are a superb investment for the office. The luxurious fabric and the unique designs provide a look of elegance which is ideal in the professional environment and the colors can brighten even the dullest or plainest suit.
The way in which you tie a silk scarf can change your look entirely, so it is well worthwhile playing around with different styles to find out what works best for your workplace and what feels most comfortable. All of the ways to create a professional look take only seconds to achieve and you can vary your look from day to day.
Square scarves can be folded in half across the diagonal, rolled or folded to create a cylinder and then tied in a simple knot which is worn to the side of the neck or used to create a choker with the knot being placed at the back of the neck.
Another great look can be achieved with a half knot. Simply place a long silk scarf around the back of your neck with both ends hanging freely to the front, but leave one end longer than the other. Cross the longer end over the shorter one, place your hand half way down the length of the longer piece and bring it up above where the two pieces of fabric cross. You should now be holding a loop of material. Take hold of the whole of the loop in one hand and the end of the shorter piece of fabric in the other and pull in opposite directions until the scarf is comfortably tight around your neck.
A quick and easy way to tie a long silk scarf which both looks very attractive and is particularly effective for showing off the gorgeous hand painted design is to fold the scarf in half lengthways, place the double layer of fabric around the back of the neck so that the free ends and the folded end fall to the front. Feed the free ends through the loop created at the fold and pull to tighten.
For a really chic style which looks stunning with a business suit, simply place the middle of the scarf at the back of your neck with the two ends falling to the front and then twist one end of the fabric over the other to create a rope-like effect. When both ends are twisted all the way to the bottom, hold the two ends together and continue to twist so that the ‘rope’ begins to fold back on itself, moving closer and closer to your neck and creating a rosette effect. To complete the look, just tuck the ends of the fabric behind the rosette so that they are out of sight.
