Jessica Jung, Jacelyn Tay and more show us how to wear a neck scarf like a French girl
Bundle of joy
Seen on our favourite trendsetters like Jessica Jung, Hyuna and Irene Kim, the neck scarf is a super easy accessory to style and look tres chic in even if you’re not French. There is no other piece of fabric quite as versatile at this one.
Whether you have it tied around your neck in a knot, tied in a bow, worn as a hairband, as a bracelet around your wrist or around your waist as a belt, a scarf makes a major impact in the style stakes and adds an instant edge to any outfit. Scroll through the gallery to get some ideas on how to style the neck scarf.
This must-have accessory works for dressed up looks as well as more casual outfits like this one. Model Irene Kim has a keen eye for details. She jazzed up her laid back striped tank top and jeans ensemble with a vibrant floral scarf.
With a conservative stripe and subtle floral detail from the scarf, this is a safe and easy way to dip your toe in mixed patterns if you are afraid to pull off busier print-on-print pairings.
Radio deejay Kimberly Wang edges up a dainty cropped peplum top with a teal skirt and scarf tied around her neck. She completed the playful outfit by putting her hair up in a messy half bun. We love how the blue shade in her scarf complements the teal in her skirt.
You can never go wrong with an all-black ensemble. Actress Jacelyn Tay looked chic in Prague with her black sweater, oversized shades and scarf combo. If you’re not comfortable wearing bright colours, you can still make a statement with prominent accessories like a scarf.
South Korean pop singer Hyuna is channelling her inner cowgirl with her red scarf and denim skirt get up. Pair this outfit with your favourite summer sandals or if you’re travelling to a country with a colder climate, fall appropriate ankle boots.
Local media personality Jamie Teo keeps her look simple and comfortable in a denim sleeveless midi from Warehouse, grey sneakers and a white shoulder bag. The trendy fitness enthusiast makes her outfit stand out with a vibrant scarf tied in a knot. This outfit is great for grabbing brunch with the girlies or just running errands.
When it comes to fashion, sometimes less is more. Singer and creative director of fashion label Blanc & Eclare, Jessica Jung, accessorised her classic crisp white button up with a bold patterned scarf. Complete Jessica’s preppy outfit by pairing the look with slim black trousers or jeans.
A scarf can not only inject a pop of pattern and colour to your summer outfit, it is also perfect for keeping your hair out of your face for a breezy day at the beach or when you’re holiday. To wear your scarf as a headband, wrap the scarf around your head and tie it into a knot.
Add dimension to your outfit by teaming a lightweight silk scarf with a thick blazer or coat. If you are wearing solids like Girls’ Generation member Yuri, consider adding some a printed, patterned or textured scarf to add interest to your outfit.
