Scarves come in a wide range of colors and styles. From fun and flirty to lacy and frilly, to warm and cozy, there's a perfect scarf for almost every occasion. Spring is an occasion after all, and scarves are the perfect accessories for this stunningly beautiful and startlingly temperamental time of year. That's why I love scarves for spring. They may actually be the perfect accessory to have on hand at all times from the first day of spring well into the dog days of summer. Here are a few of my favorite reasons why! Versatility You'll have a hard time finding a more versatile accessory than a scarf. Truth be told, I can use a quality scarf as several different accessories within the course of one day on the calendar. a) Hair Tie b) Head Covering c) Cloaking Device Against Ex-Boyfriends d) Necklace e) Belt f) Jacket/Shawl (hint of warmth on chilly spring nights) g) Relief from Sun h) Hint of Color (scarves are perfect for adding a splash of bright colors without overwhelming the perfect outfit). i) Riding with the Top Down (my personal favorite springtime activity) Who could demand more from one simple wardrobe add on? The real beauty is that this is just the beginning of the benefits for using scarves as spring accessories. Expense Scarves come in a wide range of colors and styles at astonishingly reasonable prices. You can purchase a rainbow of scarves for the price of one necklace or pair of earrings and scarves serve so many more purposes. By switching scarves or using a scarf as a different outfit accessory, you're given yourself a new look with minimal expense. I love the wardrobe-stretching possibilities scarves provide! Practical Now there's a word you don't hear bandied about very much when it comes to matters of high fashion. Scarves, however, are extremely practical accessories. Their cost effectiveness and versatility for wearers aside, they also have practical uses that go beyond Wild West hold ups. Because scarves are so versatile, they can be used as a "cover up" for blown out dress straps or to tie around and carry items in a pinch. My personal favorite, though, is that they are simply fun! Scarves are fun to collect, to use, and to wear, during spring more than any other season. It's challenge just sorting through the many great ways this accessory can bring light, liveliness, and just a hint of sass to almost any outfit.
