How To Tie A Silk Scarf {Where to Find Affordable Summer Scarves}

Whenever I share a photo of myself wearing one of my Tuckernuck silk scarves, I inevitably get asked how I tie it. Until I started receiving this question over and over I never really thought it was worth sharing since I didn’t necessarily feel like the way I tie it best shows off the design of the scarf. 

The way I fold it to tie it is a lot easier than it may look and will hopefully inspire any of you who have been struggling with how to tie your silk scarves to pull them out of your closet and wear them. And if you don’t own a silk scarf and are looking to purchase one I’ve shared some cute ones I’ve found online at the bottom of this post! 


Step One: Fold Scarf Into A Large Triangle
I find that spreading the scarf out on a flat surface helps me when I am folding my scarf to put on. Usually, that flat surface is my bed, but it’ll likely depend on the size of the scarf you’re working with. To start, fold one corner of the square to another, creating a triangle shape. It’s ok if the scarf isn’t a perfect square and therefore doesn’t line up exactly since that won’t be obvious with the way I tie mine. 

Step Two: Starting On Long Side Of The Triangle Begin Folding Scarf Into A Rectangle
Start at the long edge of the triangle and begin folding the scarf into a rectangle. The size of the rectangle will be dependent on how thick you’d like the scarf to be when it lays over your shoulders. If I were to measure my rectangles would probably be between 4 and 5 inches. Be sure that you’re not folding these rectangles accordion style. Folding the edges in a way that almost looks rolled makes it, so all the edges are tucked together. Keep folding in a rectangle until you get the point of the triangle and have no more fabric to work with and are instead left with a long strip of material. 


Step Three: Drape Around Neck And Tie Two Knots Toward The Ends
Once you’ve finished folding, place the portion of the strip of fabric that has the last bit of fabric (the point of the triangle) against the back of your neck. Decide where you want the knots to hit you and tie a simple knot on either side of the fabric, and you’re all set! 

I told you this would be easy! I’ve found myself pairing these scarves with everything from basic t-shirts to dresses to re-wear pieces in a fun way. The exact scarves I have are no longer available, but Tuckernuck has come out with new color waves that would be equally as cute. Below you’ll find those and some other more affordable silk scarf options.
