A great way to style these patterned scarves is by teaming them with a classic little black dress or t-shirt. This creates a bold and beautiful statement without overwhelming the eye. Unless of course you love bright clashing colours and mixing prints, then mix and match as much as you like!

A personal favourite combination of mine is teaming this classic black embroidered notches dress by Abraham & Thakore with this gorgeous bright door print scarf by Charu Desi, creating a perfect casual outfit for any day occasion. This scarf has to be a favourite of mine, the bright citrus colours teamed with the detailed and quirky print and silky fabric creates a luxury look that could be worn with any simple and classic outfit.

These scarfs can also be worn in a variety of ways, for example loosely wrapping around your neck once for a cosy and stylish look. You can wear it around your neck loosely knotted, or draped over your head in a snood fashion for those colder days.

These Charu Desi patterned scarves are perfect for the Auntnm/Winter months that are quickly approaching, mixed with some very uncertain weather forecasts! The silky fabric means they are not too warm, nor too cold so are great to wear on a day to day basis.

Try also teaming one of these gorgeous scarfs with a simple tunic dress such as this tan and red Tritik silk tunic by Neeru Kumar, this colourful combo would be perfect for smart casual evening out, teamed with a simple pair of trousers and a pair of strappy heels, would most definitely turn some heads!

Bollywood star Kareena Kapoor has a desirable selection of scarves and mostly prefers to wear them casually on a day to day basis.

Most actresses prefer to adopt the scarf when traveling, like Gayatri Oberoi who has a preference for adopting them in a more feminine and quirky way, which is a perfect way to style Khyata Sahni’s unique collection.

Scarves are beautiful and a timeless piece of accessory. They are the most versatile of all items of clothes, and can add colour and style to any outfit. Colourful scarves make a big fashion statement and in my opinion can complete a whole outfit, without having to wearing an overload of accessories.

The trick to being trendy and also feminine and sophisticated is to wear your colourful scarves in imaginative ways. Be creative with your scarf and have fun trying out the many different ways to wear a Khyati Sahni scarf. There are many versatile ways to wear your scarf, you can wear it around your neck loosely knotted like Gayatri Oberoi, wear it as a headband with the ends loosely hanging over your front shoulder, tie one around the handle of your handbag, or wear a long scarf wrapped around your head in the style of a snood.

Add a burst of colour to your simple tee or make your simple cami-top look classy by simply incorporating a Khyati Sahni piece. Also to add a splash of colour to your conservative or plain boring suit, add one of the more stand-out colourful scarves that will most definitely transform your outfit.
