The Best Scarves For This Tricky In-Between Weather

Sure, it looks warm outside. (This observation is based on the very scientific method of looking out the window in the morning.) But, once you actually step out into the deceptive sun, you quickly discover that it's way breezier and chillier than you thought. This transitional weather can be difficult to pin down.

That is, unless, you're armed (ahem, necked?) with a light scarf. These essential pieces of fabric are exactly the portable layer you need for these pesky, in-betweeen temperatures. So, we've rounded up 25 iterations of the essential accessory — including everything from oversized, chiffon blanket-types to sleek, silken skinnies — that are sure to keep you chic and cozy. Let's get you (lightly) wrapped up.
