Two clothing brands offer distinct visions of what it means to live — and to dress...

Take it from us—never underestimate the power of a good accessory. Or if you prefer, take it from Michael Kors who once said: “The perfect accessory can make the difference between looking blah and totally to die for.” And when it comes to stylish spring accessories, a printed silk scarf can do wonders for an outfit. It’s such a versatile item that definitely goes beyond its most obvious purpose.

While there are so many ways to tie a scarf around your neck, you could also have some fun and try tying it at different spots. Try it on as a headband for a boho chic look or wrap it all the way around the top handle of your bag. Freshen up a black dress by using a brightly-hued scarf as a belt or wear a larger one as a wrap on a cool spring evening. The possibilities are truly endless and the result will most certainly always be chic.

Now check out our selection of gorgeous silk scarves that will perfectly complement your springtime looks.
