I always say that I love accessorizing with scarves. They can be the easiest and cheapest of all accessories you can think of, but can definitely transform any look. No need to spend big bucks to make the biggest impact! I often opt out for monochromatic looks (especially to the office), but then I add on a scarf in an interesting color or design and instantly my look is elevated into a more interesting one. Here, I am wearing just your basic gray sweater, a pair of jeans and sneakers, but that yellow-purple tone scarf is definitely making my outfit pop. Yes, I added a colorful bag too, but even without the bag, the scarf would have been impactful enough. With so many options out there, there really is no limit to how you can style your looks using a scarf.
Wearing: Anthropologie scarf (old & a gift from a friend; similar here, here and here); Shein sweater (old, similar here and here); Monki jeans (now on sale for less than $28!); Diesel sneakers (this color sold out, darker beige, white, light blue, dark brown, silver); 3.1 Phillip Lim bag (mine is via The Real Real, similar here).
