Scarves are a great way to liven up an outfit in every type of weather. Follow these simple tips for finding the perfect scarf, and then wearing it this summer!
Shape. The most versatile shape you'll find is a long, rectangular scarf. Look for something in the approximate dimensions of 35-40” wide by 66-72” long for maximum versatility.
