The Always Stylish Silk Scarf

A silk scarf is more than just an accessory. It has the power to transform a simple outfit into something special and adds the finishing touch to whatever you wear.

I’ve been collecting them for as long as I can remember because they’re the forever accessory that never goes out of style. They’re also the perfect way to stretch your wardrobe while traveling which takes up no space in your suitcase.Jennifer Connolly of A Well Styled Life wearing Peony Silk Scarf from LilySilk

When LilySilk asked me to help promote their Valentine’s Sale I zeroed in on the two things I think most women appreciate. Silk scarves and silk pillowcases.

This scarf has hand-rolled edges and a subtle sheen like scarves costing ten or more times its price. The silk is luxuriously soft and drapes beautifully.Jennifer Connolly showing different ways to tie a square silk scarf

I tried sleeping on silk pillow cases from LilySilk on A Well Styled Life

They’re luxuriously soft and a treat to lay on. These are available in varying thread counts and many gorgeous colors. I always choose white because it feels so clean. I simply machine wash and hang them to dry. I also feel better knowing this silk is OEKO-TEX certified to be free of nasty chemicals.

Thanks for reading and have a great day.


Thanks to LilySilk for partnering on this post. They supplied the scarf and pillowcase but all opinions are my own.




  1. I’m only 5’ and always look for ways to appear taller. I love scarfs and have many. Would appreciate pictures of different ways to wear them.

    1. Blue is one of my favs since I have blue eyes. I also have silver/white hair and also wear most colors well.

  2. The sweater and scarf are made for each other. Both look beautiful on you. Do you have any information on your sweater? I would love to get both. Thank you, Cathie

  3. Really love the black jacket and scarf. Could you share where you purchased the black jacket? Love your blog!

  4. I love scarves. I have also collected them.for many years. Not only do they bring a splash of color up around the face, but can also hide or distract from a number of figure flaws. I haven’t tried a silk pillowcase, but am now intrigued to do it. Thanks Jennifer.

  5. the only thing kept me on buying a silk pillow is the cleaning. Silk you can only wash with 30 max. 40 degrees
    and that temperature doesn’t bring out the nightcream etc. Do you have any tipp? I am really keen to try it
    (at least for the wrinkles).

  6. Thank you for reminding me to visit my collection of dozens of beautiful silk and other scarves. I’m tired of all my jewelry and scarves are a great substitute.
    Love the featured peony scarf. I will buy anything with peonies. Great colors to perk up grey January Michigan days.
    Thanks for the inspiration, Jennifer.

  7. They look so pretty on nearly any solid blouse or sweater I think. Because winter is fairly cold here, for my outerwear (coats, jackets) I do choose a heavier fabric, just for the added warmth. But, yes, silk scarves help to jazz up an outfit.
    I have not tried silk pillowcases yet…maybe I will. Thanks Jennifer!

  8. I do have several scarves that I like to wear to add a little interest to a plain top.
    And I’ve been sleeping on silk pillowcases for years – won’t go back to cotton!
