A Summer Scarf That'll Get You Through Any Season (PHOTOS)

The steamy days of summer generally don't call for a scarf, especially not one of the wooly numbers that you wore to death this winter. Be that as it may, I found myself reaching for a scarf as I headed out the door this morning. The scarf in question is striped neon pink, and made from light linen.

There are many benefits of wearing a scarf in summer. It will keep you warm in the subarctic environment also known as the office. We are convinced that the thermostat is set at a frosty 34 degrees in our building. Also, when I feel self-conscious about what I'm wearing at work, I throw my scarf over my shoulders and feel instantly reassured. Additionally, it's an easy transitional piece that can be stuffed into your bag when you get out of the train into the sweltering heat, or for that rare instance when the evening turns chilly.

Though it's functions are important, we see it primarily as an accent to our look. My bright pink scarf adds a pop of color to any outfit. Here, ten scarves that will keep you warm and stylish at the same time.
