The Daily Luxe x Banarsi Designs: The Ultimate Scarf Style Guide

 Whether you are surrounded by the crisp, orange leaves of Fall or are donning your bikini for the upcoming summer, a scarf is a quick and easy way to add a stylish element to your look.

Not sure how to style your new scarf? Whether you've opted for a patterned or plain number, I've got you covered!

Although I live in tropical Australia, I sweated my butt off styling these stunning Banarsi Design scarves for you Northern Hemispher-ers! Hey: Don't say I don't love you! Fellow Aussie's: I've provided Summer options for you too!

Scroll down for my styling tips for any outfit, any weather!

White On White

White is still a huge trend for this season. To add a bit of oomph to your white get up, add a stunning printed white scarf. Hello boho beauty!

Winter

If you're currently cosying up in cooler climes, opt for a fluffy white jumper. Inject a texture clash by teaming your fluffy friend with the floral print statement scarf. I adore the lush turquoise and purple tones in this Floral Paisley Scarf; perfect for adding some Summery vibes for fall.

Summer

Bohemian scarf
Wearing: Floral Paisley Scarf in Autumn

If you come from a land down under, you can still use a floral boho scarf to brighten up your clean, white look! Go all out boho by teaming a crochet-embellished play suit with a paisley print scarf.  This Floral Paisley scarf would look equally as lush over a bikini as it does thrown over a pair of tanned shoulders.

Styling Prints

When it comes to a printed piece, look for the color that appears least in the print. Take a scarf that color and bring out that minimal color in your look.

Winter

burgundy scarf style
Wearing: Solid Color Scarf in Maroon

Floral for Spring? Groundbreaking! Floral's for Autumn? Yes please! To bring out the maroon tones in this posy-dotted blouse, I added the Solid Color Scarf in maroon. Top with the trench to keep the cold at bay.

Summer

bohemian dress scarf
Wearing: Solid Color Scarf in Turquoise

What's an easier way to be stylish than a boho-print dress? A boho print dress with a scarf! I brought out the luscious sapphire tones in this dress by adding the solid color scarf in turquoise. It's perfect for throwing over your dresses for a chilly beach night and even adds a glam factor with it's metallic sheen.

Alternatively, you can pair your statement scarf with a solid-color garment that brings out the least statement color in your scarf.

Winter

Fall scarf style

This burgundy knit dress beautifully brings out the subtle maroon tones in this scarf, while the scarf adds color and print to the plain dress. In other words, they are a match made in heaven.

Summer

scarf styling ideas

Another great styling tip is to bring out two colors in your scarf at once. This skirt and tee combo is seriously flattered by this scarf. The scarf also transforms this plain tee and skirt combo into a big fat tick to the Seventies trend.

Stripes On Stripes

If you own a stripe scarf, why not combine it with a striped ensemble? The only rule is: the striped scarf should be a different color to your look.

Winter

scarf styling winter

Clashing shades of blue stripes is a modern take on the age-old nautical trend. Blue and white pinstripes get a little lift when combined with a vibrant striped, print, such as that on the Striped Print Scarf. If it's extra chilly, add a jacket that is the same color as one of the tones in the scarf.  We think that faux fur adds a brilliant texture clash.

Summer

70s style scarf

Off-the-shoulder is a huge Summer trend for Southern Hemispher-ers, add to the sultry neckline by draping a scarf across the shoulders and arms. This simple monochrome striped top is given a quirky edge by this pink and red vibrant scarf. For a full-blown seventies look, style with a suede skirt.

Neutrals

No matter what the season, you can never go wrong with neutral tones! Uplift your grey and beige garments with a suitably neutral scarf with a vibrant twist.

Winter

As the Autumnal fields turn into carpets of leaves, you no doubt find yourself delving into your chunky knits. Combine your fave grey or nude piece with a printed scarf with neutral undertones. 

This Abstract Floral Wool scarf wonderfully blends with the knit whilst adding vibrant hints of electric orange.

Summer

Suede is all the rage and what better way to give your neutral suede piece an extra boho edge than a printed scarf? Opt for earthy brown and beige tones and drape over the arms for that nomadic vibe.

  11. Fabulous post, you look incredible as usual. Love the scarfy tips. You know, I really do not wear scarves as often as I probably should? Should I? I don't know why they were always so hard for me to get into unless I was trying to hide something ;) Love your helpful tips like switching up the textures or pairing with a t-shirt and skirt. Superb ideas!
