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 silk scarf has a gorgeous peony print that holds every color in the rainbow. The cheery colors are a great anitdote for the gray dreary colors of winter and bring a touch of spring, long before it arrives in our weather.silk scarf tied as a triangle on Jennifer Connolly I don’t wear florals in my garments but I love them in silk scarves. 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 pillowcases several months ago and I’m hooked. They’re a simple luxury that keeps bed head at bay by reducing the friction on your hair. I’ve read they also regulate body temperature, keep our skin hydrated and help prevent wrinkles…still waiting on that one:)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.

    That shade of blue is perfect for you and works so well with the scarf.

    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

      Sorry to report the sweater is cashmere, from Costco many years ago. They often have great values and cashmere is a classic.

    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.

    • January 13, 2019 / 3:58 pm

      They sure do Jill! I hide lots of things with mine 🙂

    Do you have a good way to store your scarves

    • January 13, 2019 / 3:57 pm

      I fold mine and store them on shelves. The wraps I hang on felted pant hangers.

    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).

    • January 13, 2019 / 7:48 am

      I wash mine in cold and haven’t had a problem. I must use a lighter face cream

    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.

    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!

    • January 13, 2019 / 7:50 am

      You’re right Paulette, they don’t add any warmth!

    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!

    • January 13, 2019 / 9:43 am

      I’ll never go back to cotton either! I’m so glad I discovered them.
