The silk scarf is the only luxury accessory that is simple and accessible to all, yet has the ability transform an outfit so completely. Headscarves are making a real statement this year, gracing the SS’22 runways of Christian Cowan, Armani, Moschino, Versace, to name a few. Evoking a sense of retro beach vacations or romantic yet futuristic bohemian style, headscarves are a key trend this year!  So, look no further than Louis Jane’s square scarves for women to show off this style with complete élan.

Here are some fabulous yet easy-to-do headscarf styles to try out:

1. Twisted Turban

 A wonderful way to evoke an artistic and sophisticated look is to start with a women’s square scarf in nature-inspired patterns and hues. Our favorite pick from the Louis Jane square scarves collection is the Japanese Orchid Cashmere and Silk Square Scarf. The soft pinks and jeweled green colors complement many skin tones, and looks particularly striking when styled in a twisted turban headscarf.

How to style it? 

Ensure your hair is swept back off your face and secured well, for example in a braid or bun. Take a large square scarf for women, fold it in half to create a rectangle and place it on the head. Pull back both sides of the scarf and tie them into a tight knot. Pick one half of the scarf, open it, and place it over your head. Now, wrap it around and bring it to the opposite side. Tuck in the remaining section and repeat the same process on the other side. You can also achieve this with a long silk scarf.

2. Bandana

With a light touch of luxury beautifully complemented with delicious color combinations and prints, Louis Jane’s square scarves make for an ultimate statement piece to look effortlessly elegant all day long. Add a little extra to your weekend casual look by wearing your favorite square silk scarf as a bandana.

How to style it? 

Take a scarf and fold it diagonally into a triangle shape. If using a large silk square, fold it 3 inches from the straight edge of the triangle towards the pointed side. Section the front part of your hair and tie back the rest of it. Place the long straight edge of the scarf against your forehead, or at your hairline, with the triangle pointing down the back of your head. Now, double tie the loose ends underneath your ponytail to secure the knot properly.

3. Vintage Headscarf

Considered the most glamorous headscarf style, celebrated and flaunted by divas such as Audrey Hepburn and Grace Kelly in the 1960s, the vintage headscarf style works beautifully with both square and long scarves.

How to style it? 

Take two opposite sides of a large silk square scarf for hair and make a triangle. Now, take the folded edge and place it along the hairline. Bring the two long ends to the front and simply tie them. Finally, take the ends and make a knot at the back. Complete your look with a pair of cat-eye sunglasses.

If you are using a long scarf, center one long edge of the scarf at the top of your head, with the two long sides draping down over your bust. Cross the two long ends over and around the back of your neck, and either allow them to drape, or tie at the back or front of your neck. Complete the look with your sunglasses!

 4. Reverse Headwrap

Louis Jane’s large silk square scarf for hair collection possesses the perfect mix of elegant designs and a luxurious color palette to complement every style personality. Soft and deliciously beautiful, these scarves look stunning when styled in a reverse headwrap. Why not try it?

How to style it? 

Take a scarf and fold it in half to make a triangle. Grab the straight edge of the scarf and place it at the back of the head. Ensure that the pointed tip is on the front, over your forehead. Now, pull both sides, wrap them up across your head and make a double knot. Finally, tuck in both the pointed section and the loose ends. 

5. The Low Bun

To add a dash of sophistication in an effortless manner and take your style statement to the next level, use your small square scarf or Twilly ribbon scarf to create the low bun headscarf style.

How to style it? 

Pull your hair back and tie it into a neat bun. Place the scarf on your hair and pull the loose ends back, making a knot underneath your bun. Criss-cross both loose ends over and around the bun. Lastly, tuck in any loose ends.

Regardless of which headscarf styles you choose to enhance your look, Louis Jane’s women's designer scarves are a timeless and luxurious accessory, providing an optimum way to express and celebrate your own unique and independent style.
