A couple of weeks ago I came into possession of a multi-colored cotton scarf and itâ€™s literally revolutionized my life. I felt butterflies of love in my belly when considering the myriad ways this green, red, black, yellow and brown striped treasure could be used: as a scarf, a wrap, a skirt, a headband, a top, a blanket, you name it. Giant scarves in warm weather fabrics are perfect for the bizarre temperature changes spring and summer bring, from chilly mornings and nights to ice-cold AC. This versatile wonder of an accessory lives all rolled up in my bag, where it weighs next to nothing and I never take it out unless itâ€™s to put it onto my body. Iâ€™ve used this shining example of a scarf every single day since I found it and now I really canâ€™t imagine living without it. As you can see Iâ€™m not alone. From Balenciaga, where Nicolas Ghesquiere took the streets to the runway, to actual streets all over the world, giant scarves are where itâ€™s at. So give away that tired Palestinian business you got at Urban Outfitters and get yourself wrapped! Go!
