*Silky, because silk can be expensive. Anything light with a smooth feel (perhaps a little shine or sheen, too) works for me.
A light, silky scarf is a great accessory, whether you wear it around your head or waist like Jessica, to the office like Lindsay, or around your neck like Sally. It's all season. It comes in prints, patterns, or solids. And in various shapes--long and thin, square, shorter. I've got a few light scarves that I found vintage or got from swaps, but I could definitely use some bulking up in this area (without bulking up my closet storage, since they're so thin).
Scarves are the ultimate accessory and a great way to infuse a pop of color. Toss it on over a dress, collared shirt, crew-neck tee, basic tank. The possibilities are endless. Not sure where to put it? Tie one on to your purse strap.
Here are some of my silky scarf picks for under $50. Vintage and thrift stores are also a great place to find scarves in fun patterns (like my elephant).
Do you like silky scarves? What is your favorite way to wear them? Where do you find the best ones?
