Scarves are the ultimate accessory. You can fold them, tie them and wear them however you want! The possibilities are endless, so there’s no reason to let them sit in your closet. Here are six fresh ways to wear scarves for spring!

Scarf as a belt: Some outfits don’t look quite right with a scarf around the neck, but that doesn’t mean you can’t use one to add a pop of color to your outfit. Loop a thin scarf through the belt loops of your skirt or pants, and the compliments are sure to start rolling in.

Scarf Under Your Belt: This scarf trick works best on top of a simple foundation, such as a solid colored dress or a monochromatic shirt and skirt. The scarf adds dimension, interest and a pop of color to your outfit, and the belt keeps it all in place. It’s a match made in heaven.

Scarf Around the Neck: There are tons of different ways to wear a scarf around your neck, but this is the “cowgirl tie.” To get this look, simply tie the ends of the scarf at the back of your neck. Use a colorful scarf, like the one pictured here, to dress up a plain white t-shirt and pencil skirt at the office this spring.

Scarf on Purse: Is the weather too hot to wear a scarf around your neck this spring? Try adding one to your look by tying it onto your purse. The scarf adds a certain chicness to any outfit and personalizes the purse.

Shirt: H&M, $13
Pants: Gap, $15
Brooch: Banana Republic, $15
Shoes: Endless.com/Restricted, $39

Scarf as a Tie: A second way to wear a scarf around your neck is to knot it in the front. I like to refer to this as the women’s version of a necktie. Pair this version with a collared shirt, but leave out the pencil skirt to avoid being mistaken for a flight attendant. Shorts or pants and some modern heels work well instead!

Shirt: Abercrombie, $20
Scarf: The Limited
Shorts: Forever 21, $20
Belt: Gap, $10
Shoes: Piperlime/Chinese Laundry, $34

2. The Vintage Scarf New York & Company Black And White Stripe 100% Silk Long Neck Scarf, $12.99

Scarf as a Shirt: When the weather is hot, opt for a breezy scarf worn as a shirt. This look requires a bust that’s on the small side, and a strapless bra or bandeau top is recommended in case of any wardrobe malfunctions. Simply tie the scarf (tightly!) in a knot around your back for a chic cover-up at the beach or on a hot spring day.

Scarf (worn as shirt): The Vintage Scarf, $19.99
Belt: H&M, $20
Shorts: American Eagle, $25
Sandals: Bakers, $40
