Scarves are the accessory of the moment. In fun colors and prints, a scarf has always been a stylish girl’s secret weapon. They can be knotted, wrapped, draped, or, if you really want instant street style cred these days, belted. The latest scarf styling innovation has become an Insta mainstay ever since Olivia Palermo adopted Burberry’s genius styling trick. Whether long silk scarf or cozy cashmere wrap, who would’ve thought that combining two staples you likely already have in your arsenal — a belt and a scarf — could extend your wardrobe in infinite ways, adding ~style~ to low-key basics, bringing a much needed dose of freshness to an all-black look, and making a dress or top you’ve worn a million times look totally fresh, And yet now that it’s been spotted on every fashion blogger, editor, and muse, it seems so obvious. How were we not belting our scarves all this time?
