There’s something rather chic and fabulous about a simple silk square that can transform an outfit instantly into something special. Silk scarves have made a comeback in the last couple of months, sported on women of all ages and worn in various ways; here’s how to incorporate this versatile must-have accessory into your wardrobe:

1.This is the easiest way of wearing one wound twice around your neck and loosely tied to the side

2. Add a silk scarf to your bag for added effect (I styled my model with this scarf from Woolworths); the floral dress + scarf look pretty and feminine

3.Wear as a belt or if it’s not long enough to go around the waist, tie on a belt loop and let it hang for a casual accent

4.Wound around the head looks tres chic!

5.Change up your bracelet for a silk version -wind twice around and knot

I like to roll the scarf from both sides to meet up in the middle, and then folded over once more to create one thickish band – from here you can wind around the neck twice and tie

DENIM DETAILS: Embroidered Denim

Despite doing a major overhaul with my clothing a few months ago there are still some pieces I hang on to for sentimental reasons, like these jeans below. They have no stretch to them,which gives their age away as nowadays most jeans have lycra or elastane added for comfort! I updated mine by snipping the bottoms ala Vetement style and am considering adding a few more patches but I’m not that practical (unlike my daughter who is a wizard with needlepoint and sewing!). She’ll probably be embarressed with the mention, but her pieces are gorgeous and worth a peek: andie reeves

This season sees denim being updated by colourful threads and I’ve selected a few images I loved off Pinterest to inspire you to pimp your denim:

How gorgeous is this!

Mixing beading with embroidery threads is worth trying.

I love the use of colourful, textured wool instead of threads.

Embroidering down the seam seems like a doable place to start.

Go bold or…

I love this!
