When it comes to wearing a Hermes scarf, there are several ways you can do so. The 5 main ways to wear a Hermes scarf include around your neck, wear it as a headscarf, on your bag, you can wear it as a top, and as a belt! What I love about the Hermes scarf is how versatile it is!
Wear the Hermes scarf as a headscarf
One of the most popular ways to style a Hermes scarf is around your head. If you purchase the larger size, it can cover your entire top of your head. If you purchase the smaller size, you can wear it in your ponytail or as a bandana. Hermes scarves are known for being very colorful pieces. By wearing a Hermes scarf as a headscarf, it adds a pop of color to your outfit.
While walking the city streets, I tend to see more Hermes headscarves during the warmer months, such as spring and summer. If you are looking for a way to add some pop of color to your outfit in a unique way, then I definitely recommend you style your Hermes scarf around your head! Shop vintage Hermes Scarves
Styling the Hermes scarf on your Bag
One of the easiest ways to style a Hermes scarf is on your Hermes bags. If you don’t have a Hermes bag, don’t worry, you can wear it on any bag! When it comes to styling a Hermes scarf on your bag, this works best with the smaller Hermes scarves.
There are two main reasons to style a Hermes twilly scarf around the handles of a Hermes bag, the first is to protect the bag, when you carry a Birkin bag the oils from your hands wear off on the lather handles. The second reason is to make the bag more exciting and unique by adding a colorful Hermes scarf to your bad. I have a black Hermes Birkin bag, and I love tying my Hermes scarf around the handles or into a cute bow off the side.
Wear a Hermes scarf as a top
Did you know the Hermes scarf is big enough you can actually make it into a top? I love the idea of wearing a Hermes scarf as a top, it reminds me of being carefree and stylish at the same time! When you tie the Hermes scarf to create a top, most of your back will be exposed. For this reason, you typically see people styling the Hermes scarf as a top during the summer. And then adding a blue jean jacket or a black blazer if it gets chilly at night. Shop large Hermes Scarves to wear as a top!
Wear a Hermes scarf around your Neck
The most traditional, classic, and timeless way you’ll see a Hermes scarf worn is around the neck. This traditional look has been around for years, and there are so many different ways you are able to tie a Hermes scarf around your neck. From a simple bow, to an ascot knot, and many more! Hermes even sells scarf rings to make it easier to style a scarf around your neck.
There are 2 main reason to wear a scar around your neck, one is to elevate your look and outfit and then second is for a more practical use of keeping your neck warm. If you are looking to wear a Hermes scarf around your neck as an addition to your outfit, then I recommend ordering a smaller size, and if you want one to keep you warm, then I recommend ordering the bigger size silk scarf.
Wear a Hermes scarf as a Belt
I’m a huge belt girl, and when I saw someone wearing a Hermes scarf as a belt, I knew I immediately had to replicate it. Wearing a Hermes scarf as a belt is so simple, you fold it a few times to get the thickness you want and then wrap it around your waist and tie it in a small knot.
You can either leave the tie in the front or flip it around so it’s in the back. I’ve seen other people get a belt accessory that allows you to loop the silk scarf through the holes for a more structured look. Wearing a Hermes scarf as a belt is a great way to style your outfit. I love how belts provides a natural silhouette.
Which Hermes scarf size should you buy?
There are a 3 main Hermes scarf sizes for available sale. The Hermes scarf size 45, 70, and 90. The Hermes scarf size 45 which measures 18″ x 18″ is perfect for a headband and to be worn around your neck.

The Hermes scarf 90 measures at 36″ x 36″ is great for a giant headscarf, shawl, a top, and a belt.
Those are the main sizes, but then there are also the smaller sizes such as the Twillys which are great for tying around the handles of a Hermes bag. Lastly, they have several scarf rings to ensure that your Hermes scarf stays in place when you style it. Shop vintage Hermes scarves
