Scarves are a timeless and practical item that we can’t imagine living without — but are they still in style in 2021?

The seasons are quickly changing. We’re starting to wrap up in our chunky knits and puffer coats, and we’re definitely thinking about adding these style staples to our ensembles.

Fortunately, there’s no need to buy new because many trends from the past are coming back around, whether it’s pastels, gingham, monochrome, or scarves.

Are scarves in style for 2021?

While we’d argue that scarves are a timeless trend you can wear every year, they’re trending for 2021.

For autumn and winter, you can perhaps look at the queen or a Russian babushka for inspiration as scarves tied over the head is one of the trending ways to wear it.

The skinny scarves of the 2000s are also making a comeback, thanks to Dua Lipa and Ganni’s Spring/Summer 2022 collection showcased at Copenhagen Fashion Week. So if you want to channel your inner Legally Blonde era Reese Witherspoon or Sk8r boi era Avril Lavigne, here’s your chance to do so.

Satin scarves were one of SS21’s biggest trends too, whether worn tied around the face, as bandanas, headscarves, neckerchiefs or even as tops.
