Like a bold brush stroke painted across a blank canvas, a silk scarf is a striking sartorial statement. Just ask Mae Tan, who is known for her fearless sense of style. Take your cue from her and rock the scarves in ways that play up your individuality—it’s time to get creative.
IT’S A TIE
Tip: Layer a variety of skinny scarves in lieu of a masculine tie, or attach them to the ends of your sleeves for a dash of difference. The overall effect is one bursting with an insouciant attitude.
ON MIDDLE GROUND
Tip: The scarf doubles up fantastically as a belt, but why not take the path less travelled and wear it together with a cropped sweater for a sensual flash of skin? Adding a thin bandana-styled scarf to a pair of hoop earrings instantly changes the feel of the accessory, too. You can customise the look in any way you want—and that’s just part of the fun.
Tip: Not all superheroes wear capes… But that’ll change if it’s a colourful scarf. Braid more scarves into your hair, add a heavy-duty bracelet and you’re ready to take on the world in style.
