It's time to make my annual plea to my friends to put aways the dark colors and try some brights. Maybe a bright pink top isn't for you, but there are other ways to incorporate color, like a scarf.

What Type of Scarf to Use
All of these styles use and oblong scarf. Meaning it's a large rectangle, but many of these styles can be adapted to square scarves too. For spring, I don't like anything too bulky. Cotton and silk tend to be the easiest to work with. This one is 72" long, giving me a lot of material to work with.
I'm wearing the Lovely Spring Oblong Scarf from Chico's. They always have GREAT options that are well-priced. In fact, the accessories at Chico's are hard to beat. Scarves are great items to pick up from thrift stores OR you mother's closet. And scarves are also one of the last items I give away. They barely take up any space and can often be reinvented.
