A good scarf can transform an outfit. A cuddly cashmere one can warm up your neck. A sultry silken one can add a pop of color or a dash of dazzle to an otherwise monochrome outfit.

Best of all, scarves never go out of style. Everyone from Jessica Alba to Sarah Jessica Parker to Selena Gomez wears them. I’ve had my go-to wool one for five years, and it feels as heavenly as ever wrapped around me when it’s frigid out.

How to wear a scarf

There are many different ways to wear a scarf — the options are endless. Here are a few suggestions:

  1. Looping it around your neck, the classic way.
  2. Tying it in a loose or crisp knot.
  3. Wrapping it over your shoulders as a shawl.
  4. Using it in your hair as a head wrap or ponytail holder.
  5. Folding and tying it around your neck as a neckerchief.

You can splurge on a designer one from Jimmy Choo or Gucci, but let’s face it: Most of us have car payments and mortgages and grocery bills. So, it pays to be on a budget. But that doesn’t mean sacrificing style. Here are some of our favorite scarfs that can be worn all year long.
