While everyone else is prepping leather gloves, knit beanies, and thick, blanket-style wraps for winter, people like Kendall Jenner and Billie Eilish are obsessed with a totally unexpected accessory: delicate silk headscarves.
In May, different ways to style scarves for summer went viral on TikTok, highlighting styles ranging from coquette-ish braids to Old Hollywood glam. However, it looks like the A-listers have reached a consensus on the best way to style these silky sections. Recently, fashion’s top talents have been tying them to Audrey Hepburn’s concern.
The posh style is largely credited to icons like Hepburn and Jackie Onassis, who popularized the look in the 1960s. Now, in the age of “quiet luxury”, the elegant knot is having a resurgence. However, don’t be fooled – this is not your grandmother’s scarf.

The scarf’s biggest fan at the moment is Billie Eilish, who has been consistently wearing the headpiece in recent outings. In fact, she’s worn some variation of this trend five times in the past three weeks — for someone with virtually unlimited fashion access, that’s a lot.
These delicate scarves are a far cry from her usual “cool luxury” ensembles, Eilish is using them to elevate her famous edgy, streetwear style.
Whether she’s rocking monograms, retro polka dots, or solid colors, Eilish’s favorite method is to tie the bandana in a knot under her chin. This elegant accessory interestingly contrasts his masculine aesthetic.
Kendall Jenner is a major fan
Another A-lister who loves this look? Kendall Jenner. Over the weekend, the supermodel wore the same printed scarf two ways.
In one photo, she styled the black and white piece loosely woven under her chin à la Eilish. Taking this piece into seasonal territory, she also paired it with a chunky knit sweater and a glass of wine.
In another photo, she has tied the accessory behind her head. This time, she wore it with a crop top and jacket while sipping a mug (coffee? 818 tequila?) with Hailey Bieber.
Dua Lipa loves this look
Other style stars have also been spotted wearing vintage-inspired looks. For example, Dua Lipa was far ahead of scarves as a winter accessory.
Last year, the “Houdini” singer posed in the snow wearing an all-black ensemble. She softened her tough-girl look with a delicate, monogrammed Gucci scarf.
Get ready, because you’re looking at the hottest accessory of winter 2024.
