5 Reasons We Love Spring Scarves

  • The Perfect Accessory

    A scarf, like a piece of jewelry, makes a great accessoryit can dress up a T-shirt, or make that black dress look brighter and more casual. Try matching your scarf to your shoes or clutch to really tie your look together and turn a few heads.

  • A Splash of Color

    Now that spring is here, were excited to put away our wintry darks in exchange for bold prints and colors. Instantly spring-ify any outfit by adding a scarf in a bright hue. Wear a blue scarf one day, and a floral one the next, like this silk scarf from Talbots. Even if youre rocking the same shirt, switch your scarves. Now youve got two different looks!

  • Versatility

    Wrapping a scarf around your neck is certainly not the only way to wear it. Tie a silk scarf in a bow on the handle of your favorite purse. If you have longer hair, knot it around your ponytail. Or, string it through your belt loops and voilayou have a brand new belt. A silk scarf like this spotted one by Charlotte Sparre can be worn any way you want.
