Scarves are one of the most versatile fashion accessories—they can be worn in many ways around the neck, on the head and around the waist or hips. A scarf can add a little something extra to a simple work outfit, spice up jeans and a T-shirt or simply keep the hair out of your face fashionably. Square scarves are very adaptable, and are typically used after folding on the bias line to create a doubled-up triangle.
