The Art of the Scarf

Have you mastered the art of the scarf?  I can usually make it work with an oblong rectangular scarf, but when it comes to wearing a square scarf around my neck, I am lost.

I have this silk Chanel scarf that my granddaddy brought from France years ago.  

It is beautiful, but when I put it on, I feel like a flight attendant.

I spotted this picture on Pinterest, with the corner of the scarf front and center, and I think maybe this is the secret.
Hermès scarves doing double duty...

Here is a similar style- it's almost like wearing a necklace.

I think another key is wearing a silk scarf with casual clothes, like jeans and a tee shirt, so they don't seem too fussy.  

Do you wear square silk scarves?  How do you style them ?

I am not a big scarf kind of girl. I say frame the scarf!!

Agree with Lindsay I love a framed scarf! I also think they are cute tied on purses.

I've seen so many beautiful scarves and then I don't buy them because I don't know what to do with them. That first image is perfect!

I, too, have asked myself about how to tie scarves. This video is entertaining and has a lot of good ideas!
