5 Ways to Transform a Silk Scarf / Turban with the best of ’em!

5 ways to transform a silk scarf

So many times when I am wearing one of my silk scarves tied as a turban, women insist I share with them where I bought my turban. Pssst, I’ll let you in on a “trick” – it’s just a scarf!

I have a gorgeous collection of vintage silk scarves for sale right now at Style Girl Vintage. If you make an appointment to shop (910.538.5657), I will give you a hands-on tutorial on 5 different ways to rock it! I am sharing visuals below. Thank you to my beautiful model Amy Hammond. The featured black & cream silk printed scarf is currently for sale.

Starting Place.
(silk scarf is for sale at Style Girl Vintage)


Classic – Simply tie two ends behind your neck.


I promise, it’s the same scarf!
I can make you a scarf turban expert with a one-on-one tutorial.


Neck tie with loose double knots.


If the full-on turban is bit intimidating,
there’s always the “tur-band.”
Twist the ends in front & tuck.


Start with scarf ends in back , wrap around & tie in front.
Tres chic, darling!



If the scarf is a little too much fabric for you, there’s
always the hankerchief, which made a HUGE comeback
last year. I have several of these for sale, ranging from $18-$25.

And, I give you J.Crew’s how-to-hanky!

Last night, my dear friend Pat Kusek hosted a campaign event for her
run for County Commissioner at Air Wilmington.


Golden monochrome for the win!
I rarely do sets but I found this vintage triple set (came with gold tank too, but switched it out for cream) was just too good to pass up. It was made in Laguna Beach, CA. Found in Southport, NC.
