Ribbon scarves, or as we like to call them at CH: "Twillies", are a type of scarf made from a narrow strip of pure silk twill fabric, that is long and rectangular in shape.
Usually narrower than a traditional scarf, the Clare Haggas brand seeks to marry contemporary ideas with the exceptional materials, attention to detail and timelessness it is known for.. Clare Haggas Twillies are not only longer than most brands, but unique to the market. Each design feature dual colours, with contrasting hues on either side, multiplying your wardrobe options.
Ribbon scarves are often used as a decorative accessory to complement an outfit, rather than for warmth. They can be worn in a variety of ways, such as tied around the neck, used as a headband or wrapped around the wrist like a bracelet. Ribbon scarves come in many colours, patterns, and textures, and can add a touch of elegance to any outfit.
These delicate silk accessories can be tied in infinite ways bringing both sophistication and playfulness to your wardrobe. Incredibly versatile, the twilly can be used as a hair accessory, neck scarf, wrist cuff, bag or belt charm and more:
- Necktie Style: Fold the scarf in half and drape it around your neck with the loop on one side and the ends on the other. Take the ends and bring them through the loop, pulling them down to adjust the knot.
- As a belt: Feed through belt loops on trousers or skirts, tie in a knot or bow either to one side, or centrally.
- Choker Style: Fold the scarf in half and wrap it around your neck, tying a knot in the front. Adjust the knot and tuck in the ends.
- Headband Style: Fold the scarf in half and tie it around your head like a headband, with the knot at the top of your head or to the side.
- Ponytail Style: Tie the scarf around your ponytail, making a bow or knot.
- Bracelet Style: Tie the scarf around your wrist, making a bow or knot.
- Bag Accessory Style: Tie the scarf around the handle of your handbag to add a pop of colour!
