Although there are numerous ways to wear a silk scarf around the neck, some styles work better for certain occasions than they do for others. Tie it one way and it will look more casual, another and it will give you an air of smart professionalism, and another way still and it will look stunning with an elegant evening gown.

Of course, before deciding on how you would like to wear your silk scarf, you need to choose one which is appropriate for the occasion. Although they do come in many different shapes and sizes, the longer ones tend to look much more elegant and sophisticated for evening functions such as cocktail parties, visits to the opera or theater, charity benefits and so on. For a look of real class, the handmade examples which feature unique designs and are painted by hand using special silk dyes are far superior, and of course help you to avoid the potential embarrassment of bumping into someone else who is wearing the same thing. In addition, the 100% silk fabric which is used to produce these stunning accessories drapes and floats in a way which is unmistakable, so everyone will know that you are wearing the very best quality.

The very simplest way to wear a long silk scarf with evening attire is simply to drape it around the back of the neck so that the two free ends hang down the front of the body. Alternatively, you could either loop the length of the scarf once around the neck so that the ends hang to the front or, for an extremely elegant look, do the same thing but have the two lengths of fabric reaching down your back. The latter method looks particularly striking with dresses which are cut low at the back, but either method works especially well for women who want to hide any wrinkling on the neck or even unsightly birth marks or scars. Two other very simple methods of wearing a long scarf involve draping the fabric across the back of the neck so that the ends fall to the front of the body, and then either tossing one end across the opposite shoulder completely so that the fabric sits closely against the front of the neck, or leaving the crossed end lying on the opposite shoulder.

For a very sophisticated look which works extremely well for those with long elegant necks, a rosette is an excellent choice. Simply hang a long silk scarf around the back of the neck, allowing the two ends to fall to the front of the body. Twist one end of the fabric over the other again and again to create a rope-like effect, and continue doing this until the fabric starts to double back on itself and moves close up against the neck, sitting slightly off center. When all the fabric has been used up, simply tuck the free ends into the back of the rosette that you have created so that they are not on show.

Silk scarves for women come in all different shapes and sizes and are some of the most versatile accessories to add flair, style, color and interest to any outfit. While larger ones can be transformed into sarongs and longer ones into belts and even halter neck tops, even the square ones can be tied in a multitude of different ways to create stunning effects.

Worn in the hair, square silk scarves can not only be tied in ways which are purely decorative, but also so that they are highly practical. One of the simplest ideas is to turn your scarf into a head band. Simply fold the fabric in half across the diagonal and then, beginning with the pointed ends opposite the fold, roll or fold the scarf until you have a cylinder shape. You can now place the scarf across the top of your hair and either tie it underneath so that the free ends hang down your back, or to one side, just below the ear, with the free ends hanging to the front of your shoulder. Another completely different look can be achieved by feeding the cylinder underneath your hair and tying the free ends on top with a pretty bow. All of these methods make for a very attractive daytime or evening look.

If, on the other hand, you prefer to wear your hair in a pony tail, then you can simply tie the cylinder of fabric where your hair is gathered. In this case, however, it is always better to use a hair elastic to secure your hair first and then tie the scarf on top of the elastic. This will stop the smooth, silky material from slipping off so easily. For a slightly more elegant look, secure the pony tail at the top, plait the length of the hair, secure again at the bottom and then tie your scarf as before.

On hot days, you may want to protect your head or your hair from the strong sunshine, and there are two great ways that you can do this. These ideas also work very well for those occasions when you want to keep all of your hair out of your face, such as when driving in an open-topped car. Again, begin by folding your square silk scarf across the diagonal, but this time place the triangle which has been formed across the top of your head. Then, either simply tie the fabric underneath your hair or, for even greater coverage, tie it underneath first and then take the third corner and tuck it under the original knot or twist it several times around the knot if there is sufficient material.

Although square scarves made from any type of fabric can be used to decorate the head or hair, those made of silk make for a particularly practical choice because the material is so fine. Not only does it drape beautifully, but the knots are smaller, far less bulky and much more comfortable. Of course, for a really special and unique look, hand painted silk scarves make the ultimate fashion statement and will show off your hair in all its glorious beauty.

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.
