Best ways to wear a Hermes scarf
The thing I love about Hermes scarves is that you can wear them in so many different ways, all year round. Personally, I think the best ways to wear a hermes scarf depends on your personal style. If you think of Carrie Bradshaw, she wouldn’t have been afraid of fashioning her scarf as a pirates hat, however, I’m more likely to wear mine as a hair band or a cute pony tale bow. In the winter I often wear a hermes scarf as they keep my neck nice and warm even on the coldest days, but if I had the guts (and abs!) I would totally wear one as a bikini top in the summer! The only thing I would say, is that whilst Hermes use strong, thick, beautiful quality silk twill, I would make sure you always tie your Hermes scarf into clean hair and avoid contact with cosmetics and SPF. However if you have some older Hermes scarves which have seen better days, you can always wear the older ones in your hair or as clothing and your newer ones around your neck!
Do all Hermes scarves say Hermes?
Yes! All Hermes say ‘Hermes’ on them. They have it both printed as block capitals as a logo, as well as in a design which fits in with the print of the scarf. Modern Hermes scarves always have Hermes printed on them twice in this way, vintage Hermes scarves might say it just once.

Do Hermes scarves go on sale?
No, Hermes scarves never go on sale. Years ago there used to be the occasional Hermes sample sales too and they are never included in sample sales either. They have to be bought either from the store at full price OR preloved from a trusted source.
Is Hermes scarf worth the money?
Yes, Hermes scarf is worth the money, they hold their value really well and the prices have gone up a lot in the last few years and are sure to go up more in the future. Also, there are so many ways to were a Hermes scarf that if you are a lover of them, you can get a lot of wear out of them. They also make beautiful gifts!
What makes Hermes scarves so expensive?
Hermes scarves are expensive because they are an iconic luxury designer item. They are also perfectly printed by hand, designed by artists, usually limited runs and each one is made out of thick, high quality silk twill which is expensive to produce. Plus each one is finished with hand rolled edges which has to be done by talented seamstresses and is a time consuming and skilled craft. A lot of work and skill goes into each Hermes silk square.

How can you tell if Hermes scarf is authentic?
I wrote a full post here about how to authenticate a real Hermes scarf, but generally you need to look for:
- Hand rolled edges
- Thick silk twill
- Perfect print – not digitally printed
- Hermes marked on the scarf twice, once within the print, once as a logo
- The artists name printed within the print, much like the first logo
- The silk should be heavier than other silk scarves and have almost a matte finish
