Thought to be a winter accessory staple, scarves in fact can we be worn in every season. The advantages to wearing a scarf outside of winter, are the variety of fabric and colors. As we approach summer boat rides, picnics, longer days, warm evening strolls by the water, a scarf is the appropriate piece to complement your activities. Linen, silk, cotton blend, pick your light weight fabric of choice to liven up your ensemble. Unlike winter scarves, these seasonal scarves can be worn around the neck or wrist and are available in many sizes.

Although more of a yuppie, New England / Hampton / Preppie look the scarf can be adorn on the head with a neat tie to the side or worn as a headband. Meanwhile the free-spirited wrapped scarf is more akin to the hipster, earthy look. If you want to be safe I suggest going with the solid colors, however if you are a risk taker, go for the prints and patterns. Whatever your decision, just know you don’t have to be stuck wearing a hat or some gaudy bauble around your neck or wrist, you have options.
