Top Ways to Style a Summer Scarf

 Tied traditionally, draped loosely, or tucked up in an infinity style, a lightweight cashmere scarf is a timeless way to add a pop of colour or pattern to your look. Scarves are one of the summer's best accessories, and there are so many different ways to wear them. Here are just some of our suggestions for how to wear a lightweight scarf.

What is a summer scarf?

Firstly, what is a summer scarf? A summer scarf is a lightweight, breathable scarf made from lightweight materials. Our scarves are made from cashmere, Merino wool, or other luxury, natural fibres.

Unlike heavier scarves intended for winter, summer scarves are designed to add a touch of style and add a layer of warmth for the cool summer breeze. Our summer collections come in a variety of colours, patterns, and sizes, making them a versatile accessory for any summer outfit.

How to Style


Drape over one shoulder: This is a classic and effortless way to wear a scarf, and a great way to add a touch of asymmetry to your outfit. Flip one end of the scarf over one shoulder and let the other end hang loose. For more formal events, let the scarf drape over one shoulder to cover both shoulders.

You can also try tying a loose knot at the shoulder to avoid the scarf slipping off your shoulder.

Drape over both shoulders: Flip both ends of the scarf behind your shoulders. Let the ends hang loose or tuck them into the back of your shirt, slightly for a more polished look.

This works flipping them to the back or the front.


Wrap around your neck: This is a simple and comfortable way to wear a scarf. Simply wrap the scarf around your neck one or two times and let the ends hang loose.

Wrap around tightly: This was a fashion forward way to wear a scarf in the early 2000s. With the rising ‘Y2K’ trend, we’re sure this look will be making a comeback. Wrap the scarf tightly around your neck with the ends hanging loose.

Tie it loosely around your neck, tying it at the middle of your chest: This is a feminine and romantic way to wear a scarf. Put it around your neck and tie the ends in a loose knot at the middle of your chest.




Shawl front or back: A large scarf can be worn as a shawl, either draped over the front or back of your shoulders. This is a great way to add warmth on a cool evening or to cover up bare arms.


Benefits of a Summer Scarf

There are many benefits of a scarf, that you may not have considered before. Some examples include

  • A beach cover-up: A smooth, sheer cashmere scarf is cool to the touch and makes a luxe cover-up at the beach or by the pool.
  • Wrap up at sunset: On cooler evenings, drape a lightweight scarf over your shoulders to add warmth without bulk. The breathable, lightweight of the scarf won't make you feel hot or stuffy.
  • Great for travelling. When travelling, a lightweight scarf takes up less space in your suitcase, than a coat or jacket.
  • Long-term investment: Our scarves made from high-quality materials such as cashmere which can stand the test of time. They're a versatile accessory that you can wear season after season.


Knowing your Scarf or Stole

Our scarves and stoles come in various materials and weights, each offering a unique feel and drape.  Drape refers to how the fabric falls and folds, affecting the overall look of your accessory.  Lighter, more fluid fibres like cashmere will drape beautifully, while heavier fabrics like Merino wool offer more structure.  Understanding these differences can help you choose the perfect scarf or stole for any occasion.
