A scarf has stood the test of time as a symbol of status and even usefulness. Whether its nobility wearing a silk scarf to clearly demarcate their standing in society, or a soldier tying it around their neck or waist to wipe and clean, the origins of the humble scarf went beyond a fashion statement.
There was even a time when the scarf found its way as a sign of romantic expression when knights would borne their lady’s silk shawl to the battlefield as representation of their eternal bond and possibly a mark of luck.
Up until the 19th century, scarves were mostly the same, with no difference in pattern or material. But soon after, a variety came into foray, with manufacturers experimenting with various types of fabrics like wool, cotton, cashmere, chiffon, silk, to name a few.
Today, the scarf is adorned in a variety of styles and is embraced as either a practical purpose for change in seasons, or an addition of one’s individual representation.

A typical silk scarf is evergreen and finds its presence in many cultures and are worn in accordance with their cultural purposes. Inspired by the same, here are some styles you could carry with elegance wearing printed ArtDogs long scarves:
Timeless and iconic, a silk scarf worn as a headscarf is a conventional way to keep the hair in place. The Queen of England herself favors the style as it’s practical and uplifts any outfit. Simply fold the scarf in half, drape it around your neck, tie a knot under the chin, and wrap the excess two ends around your neck to elevate it to a more modest look.
Made popular in the 70’s, this bohemian style was widely initiated as a movement to identify one’s sexual preferences, and soon became mainstream as a chic fashion statement for the summer. Drape the scarf along the forehead and tie a knot at the back, leaving the excess to fall freely on your back or through your hair.
This style can be executed in any weather. For winters, add this on top of your coat, and in summers you could simply put it on any outfit you wear. We suggest pairing it with a noodle strap or a strapless top or dress to accentuate your shoulders, or over a fitted white or black t-shirt. All you have to do is wrap it around your shoulders and loosely tie a knot in the front.
Quintessentially effortless, this style is a favorite and need not be exclusive to women with long tresses. Men can tie one around their man bun, and women with short hair can wear it as a headband. Tying it is dependent on how you wear it and it's as simple as just wrapping it whichever way you choose and fastening it with a knot.
