How to Wear a Headscarf Like HRH, Rihanna or a Street Style Star

Hannah Almassi

There’s no one way to wear a headscarf: In fact, we’ve counted at least eight stylish knotting, tying and looping techniques that you may want to explore, should this be your next styling mountain to climb. And there are plenty of reasons as to why you may suddenly be feeling some foulard-related urges: Balenciaga put neat little matchy-matchy headscarves on the runway for autumn/winter 2017. MSGM adopted the accessory too—only you won't have been expecting how either brand decided to style them.

Then there’s Rihanna’s recent adoption of this granny-chic classic—but once again, a modern twist is key to her bringing the idea into 2017 (and probably beyond). Street stylers have been experimenting too, crafting elaborate turbans for nights out, or simply perfecting their Gucci-style eclectism by topping every look with a neat scarf headband (next to earrings, giant sunnies and a neckerchief, of course). While many are heading into the baker-boy hat trend, or staying faithful to their berets, it’s the headscarf crew that’s holding our attention right now.
