50's Chiffon Scarf

Why buy new mass produced goods when each vintage 50's chiffon scarf is its own unique treasure in a rainbow of colors and designs. The chances are very slim that you'll find a duplicate style or color in vintage. Create your own flair or statement with a neck wrap or shawl and make it your signature look. Check pictures online to get inspired then let the scarf flow as a neck wrap, hair tie or wrap turban. You can tuck it in a jacket pocket or tie it at the waist for a splash of color. Add a pin or a second sheer chiffon scarf as an accent. With experimentation one scarf can become a dozen looks.

Check flea markets, your neighborhood boutique and online sites to see prices and availability of vintage 50's chiffon scarves. Always check the scarf tags for maker and washing instructions. If there is no label assume it should be hand washed. Be sure to experiment with different size scarves and unleash your creativity. Enjoy the hunt for the perfect vintage scarf and your lucky find will never go out of style.
