The winter to spring shift is a time for rebirth, especially this year. When it comes to the wardrobe, it’s all about having the right tools in place to adapt to changing weather and conditions. Our Spring Style Toolkit is here to help.

While silk scarves were designed to be a functional accessory, keeping the wearer cool and moisture-free during the hotter months, today, the allure of the silk scarf is all in the looks. A silk scarf is essentially an easy way to inject a flash of elegance into your wardrobe, offering the possibility to create some nice contrasts and highlights across your spring and summer fits with ease.

After being weighed down by a heavy wool iteration all winter, the much lighter silk scarf allows for more styling opportunities, too. Depending on your preference, you can put the silk scarf on full show around the neck or arm, or keep things dialed down by tying it to a belt loop or bag. This makes the silk scarf an every-outfit accessory.

From streetwear ensembles to Italian luxury houses, silk scarves are versatile and always raise the bar so we hit the ‘net to round up a diverse mix of the best silk scarves on offer right now.
