The Working Woman's Silk Scarf

by Mary DeArment August 31, 2015

Trying to figure out how to spice up your work wardrobe? Try adding the accent of a scarf to any basic outfit. Here a simple, comfortable black top becomes a fashion statement by the addition of a double wrapped 54” chiffon square.


Every type of work attire benefits from the right scarf. Suits, which traditionally have harsh lines, are softened with a silk scarf at the neck. The plain sheath dress is an ideal garment to accessorize with a scarf. The color can pick up a shoe color, complement your hair, or coordinate with a sweater or jacket. Or your scarf can simply add interest to an otherwise unadorned dress. After all, you want to be memorable in your professional attire.


Remember to dress according to the culture of your workplace. Some professions expect or require a conservative wardrobe. Others are more trendy. Either way, the right scarf makes a personal statement. What other accessory can either add modesty or sass, depending where it is worn and how it is tied?
