Scarves are one of the most versatile accessories. For starters, they're functional. You use them to keep warm and they're easy to stuff in your purse when you don't feel like wearing them. They can also be used as a layering item, and provide a fresh alternative to the classic cardigan. But they're also incredibly fashionable — and an easy way to update your look for the season. Here are some ideas to get you started.
1. Tartan Dream
Plaid is always a safe choice for fall. But this year, the print is more popular than ever! For an updated take on the trend, you can try a bright cobalt or even neon print. Prefer to keep things classic? Camel and red are equally as chic. Since they'll be around forever, you don't have to feel bad about splurging on the cashmere option.
2. Animal Instincts
Leopard, cheetah and snakeskin prints are a great way to elevate your look. You can wear them over a little black dress inside or with jeans and your favourite leather jacket when you're running errands. If you're looking for a new pattern to wear, zebra is currently having a major fashion moment.
3. Colour Play
If you've put on a few pounds or just having one of those days, a bright scarf can be your best friend. It instantly draws attention to your face, and works well as an office outfit accent or cold weather accessory. Not sure which hue to try? Teal, deep pink, yellow and emerald are popular colours this year.
