Scarves are hot for spring and designers have shown several ways to wear the accessory. The collections of Temperley London, Jill Stuart and Paul Smith Women showed the wraps worn as chic headwear, recalling the glamorous actress Grace Kelly.

Dolce & Gabbana teamed a white chiffon scarf with an elegant large red rose accent, and Anna Sui wrapped the waist like a contrasting belt. Karl Lagerfeld took a modern approach, stylishly draping a sheer scarf from the neck down the front of an outfit and secured it under a belt. This concept was also seen on the Temperley London runway with a black and white animal print.

The Hermes collection saw a scarf transformed into a sexy striped halter top to complete a cowboy-chic look. Christian Lacroix tied a polka-dot scarf into poufy eye-catching bow, while Derercuny gave the scarf a hip laid-back feel with a petal-shaped swath wrapped around the neck multiple times with long ends left to hang in an airy carefree fashion.

Whichever way fits your style, make sure you stock up on scarves for the spring season. For a relatively small price tag you can radically change up a simple outfit.
