If you aren’t wearing a scarf around your neck yet, it might be time to get on it. It was Antoni Porowski’s accessory of choice in the second season of Queer Eye, and he’s still a fan. Just check out this group photo he posted with Tan France and Jonathan Van Ness. Antoni wore a red scarf with white polka dots.
His was tied in a knot but we have a suggestion for a different way of wearing it. Try using a ring. Yes, scarf rings do exist but why not use an actual piece of jewelry? Not only will it keep the scarf in place but it adds an embellished touch to your outfit. We also found some combinations you can try out.
Shop: Gucci. Available at Shangri-La Plaza. Forever 21. Available at SM Makati.
Go crazy with a printed scarf like this one from Gucci. The scarf features colorful flowers, coiling snakes, and a chevron pattern. To go with the Gucci theme, cop this gold ring with a design of a bee. The gold will complement the colors of the scarf and will keep it in place. Wear this combo with an all-white outfit or even to work.
Shop: H&M. Available at Greenbelt 3. Joanique. Available online.
If you want something more geometric, cop this scarf from H&M. It has a cotton and silk weave with stripes of different colors. It’s a white base with emerald green, gold, and blue colors. To go with the green colors, use this Joanique ring. It comes in sterling silver with green aventurine spikes. You can also use other accessories to complement the green hue.
Shop: Tory Burch. Available at Rustan’s Makati. Dandy Ona. Available online.
Instead of wearing just a regular square scarf, get one with fringe detail. This one has graphic print and zig-zagged fringe trim. Secure this around your neck with thin rings of different colors. Dandy Ona has three options: yellow gold, rose gold, and white gold.
Shop: Mango. Available at Glorietta 2. Golden Monstera. Available online.
If square scarves create too much volume for you, you can also opt for necktie scarves. These are thinner and have a more polished look. This one has a satin finish and a floral and polka dot pattern. As for the ring, try out this brass one. It is also adjustable so you can fasten the scarf safely.
Shop: Takahiromiyashita The Soloist. Available on Farfetch. Parfois. Available at Robinsons Galleria.
Here’s another necktie scarf you can use. This one is simple and easy to wear. It also comes in a dark brown color so this will match most of the pieces in your wardrobe. If you plan on wearing this to work, pair it with a white blouse, blue trousers, and brown shoes. The ring, on the other hand, is silver lined with pearls. Adding this is a great way to spruce up the scarf.
