What Should You Wear With a Scarf?
Women's scarves can add that pop of fun colour or pattern needed to pull an outfit together and take it to the next level. Whether it's a cosy knit scarf to keep the chill off your neck in the winter or a lightweight neckerchief in the summer to shield your skin and capture those vintage vibes – scarves combine function with aesthetic to create the ultimate fashion accessory that never goes out of style!
A thick, long scarf is a must-have for the colder months. They pair beautifully with other soft knitwear, like knit tops, knit jumpers and slouchy knit cardigans paired with jeans and sneakers. A scarf, long sleeve top and a skirt is a cute combination, especially when styled with knee length boots. Finish off the perfect winter outfit with a loose shacket, jacket or blazer for a striking silhouette.
How to Match a Scarf to Your Outfit?
If you're wondering how to style a scarf with your outfit, it's easier than you think! Check out these fashion tips for making scarves work with any of your wardrobe favourites:
- Pair patterned, paisley, animal print scarves or stripe scarves with block-coloured t-shirts, pants, jumpsuits or midi or maxi dresses for a well-balanced look.
- Pick out a colour in your scarf and match it with other accessories such as bags, belts, wallets, gloves or jewellery
- Style a vibrant scarf with a watercolour design with neutral clothes, and let it do all the talking.
- Black scarves are timeless and can be styled with other black garments for a sophisticated monochrome look or teamed with white or light colours for a sharp contrast. Consider scarves with tassels for added flair.
- Wear lightweight and breathable fabrics with your summer outfits. For winter, opt for soft, thicker fabrics like wool scarves that are great for layering to keep you cosy and warm.
What is the Best Material for a Scarf?
Winter scarves are made from thicker fabrics for keeping your neck warm in the cold. Knitted scarves are commonly crafted from polyester, viscose, cotton, cashmere or wool for a plush feel and a dense texture. A large knit scarf can be wrapped around your shoulders on chilly days for more coverage or left draped around the neck with long coats and snug jackets.
You can dress up a summer outfit by tying a short scarf around your neck. Silk scarves are super popular as they're lightweight and airy, perfect for adding a playful touch to blouses and protecting your skin from the sun.

- Square scarves
- Wrap scarves
- Triangle scarves
- Rectangle scarves
- Blanket scarves

What are Some Trending Colours and Styles of Scarves?
Generally, you would save your pretty pastels and bright hues for warmer months and your muted tones for the colder months. However, rules are made to be broken, and a bright floral or check scarf can add a sunny pop to a gloomy winter day!
