When I was young, I used to love playing dress up, especially when I was over at my grandmother’s house. I have such vivid memories of going through her drawers of scarves, pulling out the silks and chiffons in all shapes and colors. To me, a scarf is a timeless accessory and an item that’s to be worn for years and years. I think of them like a nice piece of jewelry, it’s something I’ll have in my closet and wear for forever.

Over the years, I’ve collected my fair share of scarves. I usually buy one when we’re traveling somewhere, that way each one has a story or a special meaning. While in the past I’ve mostly stuck to wearing them around my neck (like here) or slipping them around my bag (you might remember this post, 8 ways to wear a scarf, that I wrote a few years ago), but lately I’ve been wearing them in my hair a lot more. I’ve always loved the effortlessness of a ponytail pulled back by just a scarf (like I did here last summer), a bandana wrapped around a bun, or even a scarf folded in half and tied over my head (like here). When it’s hot and humid, or I just don’t feel like doing my hair, a scarf always seems to be the perfect solution. And beyond that, I think it’s safe to say that it’s just a great accessory to add to any classic look at any time. So, if you’re on the hunt for a pretty scarf this season, here are 7 options (at a variety of price points) to add to your wadrobe…
