Silk scarves are Rihanna's favourite new accessory

Silk doesn't only belong in the bedroom, we take a look at the rise in popularity of silk scarves

You probably already know the benefits of sleeping on silk; it's super smooth, kind to your hair and leaves your hair looking fresh. For those of us who find it hard enough to tear ourselves out of bed in the morning, especially from under one of our silk duvets, taking the luxury of silk with you in the clothes you wear could put that extra spring in your step. Kate Finnigan at The Telegraph recently covered the remergence of silk squares as headscarves. As a child in the 80s, she perhaps understandably had the misconception that silk scarves were reserved soley for the elderly. Now thirty years on, silk scarves are most definitely on trend, appearing on the catwalk in Christian Dior's show this season. Kate also shares a few tips on the best way to wear your scarf, insisting that when not in use or tied around your neck, tie it to the strap of your handbag. As well as adding a flash of colour to your outfit, it keeps it within easy reach if the weather takes a turn for the worse.

Also, as shown in the image above, A-listers such as pop star Rihanna have also been spotted wearing silk scarves out and about. This playful print from earlier this week is sure to catch the eye of any camera lens. Katie Holmes, Kylie Minogue, Elle McPherson and Rachel Bilson have all been snapped wearing silk scarves in the past too, cementing silk scarves in the fashion hall of fame.

While we can't see ourselves adding silk scarves to our current range of silk bed linens, silk duvets and silk sccessories anytime soon, we think letting silk escape the bedroom once in a while is a great idea.
