I've never met a scarf I didn't like. I can't explain it, but to me, scarves are the perfect accessory. They have evolved past cold weather shields to fashion forward power pieces that can be worn all year round. I've taken to the scarf trend like a camel to the desert – I have fancy scarves for going out, cozy scarves for staying in, chunky scarves that cover my face, and skinny scarves that barely serve any purpose at all. But I love all my babies just the same. And to spread the scarf love, here are some suggestions on how to think outside the box and rock the scarf from daytime strolling to evening schmoozing.
When stuck between the puffy jacket and the summer trench, layering is the best option for keeping warm during these transitional months. And the scarf is a perfect layering piece. But instead of a heavy winter wool one, opt for a lighter cotton scarf, and choose one that is larger in size so you can wrap it around your neck multiple times – that way you'll get the necessary warmth without any annoying bulk.

A scarf is a perfect way to add color and detail to a casual daytime outfit. If you choose a smaller lightweight one like this ombre linen scarf ($24), you can wear it indoors – just like you would your favorite necklace. Just make sure to drape the scarf loosely around your neck to maintain a laid-back look.
For an evening out, opt for a skinny scarf in a standout color. This red crepe scarf ($250) pops against a midnight black shirt, and when paired with edgy earrings, your outfit will be hard to beat.
