Granny chic: How to wear this summer’s Royal-inspired scarf trend

Hair scarves have been a versatile summer accessory for decades. And no one wears one better than Her Majesty The Queen

The fashion set agrees, and vintage-inspired silk head scarves tied under the chin appeared on many of the major catwalks in 2018 and again in 2019. 

Versace, Gucci, Balenciaga, Stella McCartney and Richard Quinn, whose show the Queen herself attended in February 2018, have all championed the trend. 

Unsure of how to wear the accessory? Grab a pair of sunnies and throw on one of these tried and tested looks…
