How to Style a Burberry Scarf

Considering taking the plunge and treating yourself to that most classic and versatile of designer pieces, the Burberry scarf? This is the most-used accessory in my collection so read on for some ideas of how to style (hint: it goes with ABSOLUTELY EVERY Autumn/Winter look).

Work with the long lines of the scarf by simply draping it around your neck, which draws the eye down and helps to make you look taller. Add to the illusion with heeled ankle boots for comfort, a pleated midi skirt for feminine elegance and of course a knit to keep you cosy and warm. Chicwish is an excellent resource for pleated skirts.

Oh, and don't forget the beret, just for fun!

Why wouldn't you pair the Burberry scarf with the classic Burberry trench? I love keeping my look completely tonal by wearing only the colours that appear in the scarf. Here, I'm wearing a sand-coloured Burberry trench coat, a black Aspinal of London bag and black ballet flats from Ted Baker, a camel midi skirt from H&M and where's the pop of red, I hear you ask? On my lips, of course.

The scarf works perfectly well with evening looks as well as daytime. Often, I'll drape the scarf around my shoulders like a shawl, in place of a coat, which looks very elegant.

Rosie the dachshund has come to say hello! Of course the scarf works brilliantly as part of a more traditional winter outfit too. It never looks or feels better than when it's paired with a cosy cable-knit jumper like this one from H&M. Pair with a mini skirt, fleece-lined tights and over-the-knee boots to look stylish while staying super toasty.

Probably my favourite way to style the Burberry scarf is as part of an autumnal look. On my trip to Amsterdam last year, I fell in love with this outfit! I wore a thrifted Ted Baker dress in this stunning burgundy shade, a Parisian-inspired beret, polka-dot tights and of course the trusty Burberry scarf. I have never felt so chic!
