Much like a good non-stick pan and an eye cream, owning a silk scarf is something of a rite of passage into adulthood — and with any of the best silk scarves listed ahead, you, too, can join a long and rich tradition of sophisticated (but still extremely cool) grownups. Whether made of faux or real silk, they all feel luxuriously smooth and come in a range of prints and palettes to suit any wardrobe. No need to invest your savings in an Hermès scarf, either: All the scarves featured here cost well under $20.
Other than their painterly prints, silk scarves are perhaps best known, and most useful, for their versatility: Try wearing yours as a headband, headwrap, wristlet, anklet, armband à la Carrie Bradshaw, handbag decor, or even a teeny-tiny top. You can tie it in a knot, tie it in a bow, or let it hang loose. The possibilities are limited only by your fabric-to-available-surface-area ratio.
Scroll on to shop five of the best silk scarves you can get on Amazon. Timelessly chic and eminently affordable, they’re the perfect way to elevate any simple outfit, however you wear them.
