From their intricate designs to rich colors, silk scarves offer the perfect amount of interest to an otherwise simple look, and can make season-less pieces feel fall, winter, spring or summer appropriate.
Beyond just being fun to wear and collect, silk scarves are also a wonderful accessory for stretching your basics without breaking the bank. Not only can you find great options at just about any price point (they don't need to be Hermes to be wonderful), but this classic staple instantly elevates anything it's paired with.
Case in point, is this simple look I wore recently. The temps are still on the warmer side here in Charleston so I used the scarf to inject a bit of fall into my otherwise neutral look, and couldn't be happier with how it turned out. Thanks to the rich fall colors in this scarf, my white tee felt like a great fall layering piece rather than a lightweight summer top - stretching it even further in my wardrobe.
For footwear, I pulled out my trusty ballet flats for chic comfort that lasted all day. Plus, they kept my feet covered which further lent to that early fall feeling.
Below, I've linked some amazing silk scarves that I've come across recently but I also recommend scouring eBay, etsy and local thrift stores as well.
