Today I’m going to talk about the black scarf that you can put on almost any outfit and instantly make it look more elegant. The black scarf is very easy to style indeed. More importantly, it’s also very easy to pull off. For those of you who are not familiar with this, I want to quickly show you how to style it. I’ve put together some really good outfit ideas for black scarves for you. Let’s dive in.
Black printed scarf with gray shift mini dress
To start with this list that has so many beautiful outfits in it, I’m going to show you an outfit that falls somewhere between casual and elegant. You can wear this outfit to meet friends as well as a low-key cocktail party outfit. Simply wear a black scarf over a gray mini dress. Wear light pink heels for an extra feminine touch.
White wedding dress with black faux fur scarf
A black scarf goes perfectly with a white wedding dress. In this case, the scarf is a very elegant black faux fur scarf that simply makes the outfit more beautiful and elegant. Conveniently, it can be worn to make you feel warmer. For the shoes, you can just wear silver heels with open toes to look a bit shinier and more attractive.
Black scarf with silver floral details
Sometimes all you need is a little silver detail to make your black scarf more attractive as the color combination of black and silver can often keep your outfit eye-catching. For example, this black scarf comes with some nifty silver floral details. You can wear the scarf with a black tank shift mini dress with silver open toe heels to look simple yet beautiful.
Black faux fur scarf with a gray fit and a flared mini dress
As shown a little earlier, a black faux fur scarf can make your outfit look so much more elegant and beautiful. This time it is not combined with a white wedding dress, but with a gray flared mini dress. You can pair them with silver heels with an open toe strap to complete a low key, gorgeous cocktail party outfit.
Black scarf with mini tank dress
You can also wear a black scarf as if it were a black scarf. One of the benefits of wearing the scarf this way is that you cover your shoulders and collarbones for those of you who don’t particularly like showing too much skin. You can pair the scarf with a black tank mini dress and black open toe heels with ankle straps to complete the outfit.
Button up black scarf with white tank top & jeans
There are many variations of black scarves. For example, this particular one comes in the form of a black scarf with a button. You can wear it like a jacket. Team it with a white tank top and navy skinny jeans. Wear black ballet flats for the shoes for a simple and neat way to complete the outfit.
Wear it with a black V-neck tank shift dress
You can also put a black scarf over your shoulders and combine it with a sleeveless black mini shift dress. This way, only a small part of your shoulders will be shown. It’s almost like the scarf transformed the sleeveless dress into a cold shouldered dress, which very interestingly makes the outfit look sexy. For the shoes, you can wear either black or silver heels with open toes.
Faux fur scarf over a white shift dress
Here is yet another outfit with the black faux fur scarf. This time it is paired with a white mini shift dress to create an outfit that is suitable for cocktail parties or even formal events. For the shoes, keep the outfit more refreshing by wearing white open-toed heels.
Wear with White Lace Bridesmaid Dress
A little earlier we saw how a black faux fur scarf can look really good with a white wedding dress. Let’s see what a typical big black scarf would look like with a white lace bridesmaid dress. As you can see in the picture above, the result may not be as chic and elegant as the faux fur version, but it still looks very pretty. Just pair them with silver heels to complete the outfit.
Black ribbed fringed scarf with a gray mini shift dress
If you look closely, this isn’t just your typical black scarf. It’s actually a ribbed scarf made from knit. Even with its fringes, this black scarf looks very beautiful and unique.

When you wear a costume like this black plunging V-neck midi dress, you sometimes feel like you are showing too much skin.
