A silk scarf is my favorite accessory, and a scarf buckle (also known as a scarf ring) is a fantastic tool that allows you to do so much more with your scarves. In this tutorial, I am going to show you a few different ways to style your silk scarf with a scarf buckle.

Tools and materials:

Hermes silk scarf 35” x 35”

This is my beautiful Hermes scarf that I will be styling. It's the “La vie du Grand Nord” Hermes scarf 35” x 35” (90cm x 90cm). My scarf buckle's internal diameter is about 1” (2.7cm). 

Style 1 - Bow

Arranging the silk scarf across the shoulders

1. Arrange the scarf

Start by folding your scarf in half so that you have a triangle and then laying it across your back and over your shoulders. Make sure that the two sides are equal and fall to the same length.

This will be the starting point for the other scarf styles that I show you as well.

You now have a beautiful bow.

As a variation, you can shift your bow to one side and make one wing of the bow a little bit bigger than the other one. This is a beautiful asymmetrical look if you prefer to wear your scarves slightly to one side.

Style 2 - Accordion

For the next style, pass one end of your scarf through the buckle. Then place the scarf on your shoulders.

Take the side of your scarf that doesn’t have the buckle on it and fold it with your hands like an accordion.
