Scarf curtains are literally shaped like scarves and are draped to give a classy look to any window style and frame. Because of the variety of styles that curtains come in, it can be overwhelming to choose the right curtain for you. Scarf curtains themselves come in several of their own specific styles.

Ghost Scarf

The ghost scarf curtain looks just as it sounds--like a ghost. These often come in pale white or soft pastel colours. The scarf part of the curtain is wrapped around a pole above the window with two ends falling down to the sides of the window. Above the curtain there is a long, thick sheet that covers the entire window up, but can be tied to one side of the window to let the light in.

Sheer Scarf

The sheer scarf curtain is similar to the ghost scarf curtain except it has nothing covering up the window. Instead, the scarf just drapes around the top and sides of the window frame. This kind of curtain cannot be used for covering the window itself; rather, it is used for aesthetic interior design. This type of scarf is often made out of a fine, thin fabric to make it look more delicate.

Voile Scarf

The voile scarf is similar to the ghost scarf in that it covers the window. Unlike the ghost scarf, however, the voile has two flaps of fabric that can be split and tied to the sides of the window. The voile is the most common scarf curtain style because it is both practical and versatile when decorating. Like the ghost and sheer scarves, it bears the earmark of scarf curtains in that it surrounds the top and side borders of the window frame with a wrapped, flowing scarf.
