The Small Tweak That Changes Any Outfit in 2 Seconds

Certain trends find their feet on Instagram, and this accessory trend is one of them. Over the past few weeks, the likes of Lucy Williams and Laura Jackson have been reinventing their most simple outfits by adding colourful printed square scarves, usually looped around their ponytails. Luckily, there is no shortage of beautiful options out there, whatever your budget may be. If you're after something under £10, then make like Lucy Williams and head to Uniqlo, or don't miss Zara's amazing selection of square scarves. Meanwhile, if you're willing to spend a little more, we've found the dream scarves from Rixo and Gucci.
