How To Style A Square Scarf For Summer

How To Style A Square Scarf For Summer

When I announced on social media that our Celebrating This Life shop is now carrying square scarves, a lovely follower asked for instructions on how to style. I thought it was a wonderful idea!


I just shared my how-to on my first IGTV on Instagram but for the blog I turned to an expert in the industry, Hermès. These are some images of the Hermès Knotting Cards that you can sometimes buy from Hermès or find at your favourite luxury retail site. Or, like me, you can find them on Pinterest for free 😁 

My favourite way to style a square scarf is as a headband. I have really long hair and that and summer breezes do not mix. Wearing a scarf in my hair, in any of the images below, keeps hair out of my face so I can do what I love, mostly playing in the sun with Ivy. 

The image above shows how to fold your square to make it a nice long rectangle and below we see how to style as a headband.

My favourite way to wear is as the bandana style. It's effortlessly chic with a real touch of vintage style. Ponytails give me headaches if they are in too long and if you're spending the day on a boat, gardening or even if there's just a touch of wind, this keeps your hair out of your face and protected. Bonus, no headaches!

Another way to wear that is probably the easiest way to style is the below look, which I liken to a very chic pirate. Cover your forehead and tie at the back. You can also top with a trendy beach fedora for a very Hamptons-esque look.

Lastly, if that wind isn't blowing, and you don't feel the need to wear in your hair, tie around your neck for a pop of colour. When the wind picks up, it will be right there waiting.

Rememberr, all the square scarves in the Celebrating This Life shop are vintage and one of a kind so once it's gone, it's gone for good. If you see something you love, I highly recommend you jump on it. And if one doesn't catch your eye right now, keep coming back to the site because new stock will be arriving every week!
