Some things to look for in cute scarves are colors, fabric, textures and prints that suit the wearer. Bright colors, including lime green, lemon yellow and purple, liven up a plain T-shirt. Funky patterns, such as plaid, lace or polka dots, are a great complement for plain dresses.
Some wardrobe essentials for women include a gauzy scarf for summer, a cotton scarf, a knit scarf in a dark, neutral shade, and pashmina scarves in both light and dark neutral colors.
Men should choose a wool scarf in a soft color and subtle pattern. A lightweight cotton scarf is ideal for summer, while a knit scarf works on cold winter days.
