If you’re looking for a new and fun accessory to add to your flare this season, headscarves are all the rage. Designers like Ralph Lauren, Marc Jacobs and Dolce & Gabbana all had this look well represented at their 2013 Spring/Summer fashion shows. And the brighter, the better.

Bright colors are a serious trend right now. Walk through any department store and it is practically overwhelming because of the wide variety of hues. For anyone that loves color, this season is perfect. But for anyone who has spent a good majority of their adulthood resisting these colorful trends, headscarves are the perfect way to incorporate this trend into your more demure color palette.

By their nature, headscarves look fabulous in almost any color or pattern. Because they are folded, twisted and tied, multi-pattern scarves tend to create a fun and avant-garde look. Beware of any solids—they can detract from this merry style. Depending on the anticipated final-look, play around with the length of the scarf. This is a great way to change things up from day to day. Long scarves create a more bohemian look while an infinity headscarf remains more structured.

When it comes to picking a headscarf, the same general rules of fashion apply: pick colors that are complimentary to your skin tone and pick the style that best suits your bone structure. Eternally taking heed of these simple rules will greatly reduce the possibility of a fashion faux pas.

Heading into spring and summer, this accessory will see major play. From beaches to corporate events, the headscarf can easily be incorporated. They are limitless in their ability to be casual or dressy. This feminine and elegant throwback is a simple way to shake-up your look this season.
