A scarf is a versatile accessory that you can wear all year round.
But how do you choose a suitable scarf for the summer?
We give a few tips to find the right scarf to wear in the warm season.
Tip 1: Choose a light fabric
A scarf made of a light fabric such as cotton, linen, rayon or silk is ideal for summer.
These fabrics breathe well and do not feel too hot on your skin.
Moreover, you can easily wash and dry them.
Tip 2: Choose a cheerful color
A scarf with a cheerful color or print gives your outfit a summery look.
For example, think of pastel shades.
You can also opt for a scarf with a striking detail such as fringes, pompoms or beads.
Tip 3: Choose a suitable shape
You can wear a scarf in different ways, depending on the shape. For example, you can wrap a long scarf around your neck, drape it over your shoulders or use it as a belt. You can wear a square scarf as a headscarf, bandana or top. You can use a round scarf as a turtleneck or as a hairband.
Tip 4: Choose an appropriate style
A scarf should of course also match your personal style and the rest of your wardrobe.
If you like a classic look, you can opt for a plain scarf in a neutral color such as black, white or beige.
If you like a bohemian look, you can opt for a scarf with an ethnic motif or a tie-dye effect.
If you like a sporty look, you can choose a scarf with a logo or a graphic pattern.
Tip 5: Choose a suitable occasion
A scarf can complete your outfit for any occasion.
If you go to the beach, for example, you can wear an airy scarf as a pareo or as sun protection.
For example, if you go to the office, you can wear an elegant scarf as a tie or wrap.
For example, if you are going to a party, you can wear a shimmering scarf as an accessory or as a dress.
And with a shawl from stately image you can leave your coat at home this season.
