This accessory trend can be easily incorporated by anyone, regardless of age or personal style. Vanessa Hudgens and Sienna Miller have both recently been spotted wearing silky scarves secured with a simple knot. This slight embellishment pulls their casual outfits together and infuses them with a certain jaunty spirit. Kylie Minogue and Sharon Stone opted for more involved wrappings and showed off their neck-wares by choosing simple, dark tops. The grand scarf standard is Hermes, naturellment, the maker of many lovely pieces, like the hand-rolled Silk Twill Pleated Scarf. ($355, hermes.com) We also suggest downloading the Hermes Handbook (called "Playtime With Your Scarf") from their website. It illustrates the zillions of ways to tie your scarf in an amusing and easy-to-follow instructions.
While Hermes scarves never lose their value, if you'd rather dip into this trend, try J. Crew for their wonderful, affordable scarves. Right now their Large Printed-Silk Twill Scarf in Roasted Pumpkin (with a cool, autumnal design) or Mahogany (in dark neutrals) are both smart options. ($55 each, jcrew.com) There are scores of gorgeous scarves at Coach as well. Check out their Ergo Patchwork Scarf; it features a cheerful, abstract pattern on imported silk. ($78, coach.com) If you find scarves fundamentally too preppy, Vera's Leopard Crepe de Chine in turquoise/black or black/white might change your mind. ($62, ronherman.com) Finally, Topshop is offering a skinny version of this look via their Cubic Print Silk Scarf. ($20, topshop.com)
