Selena Gomez is definitely one of our favorite celebrities! Not only because she has amazing talent but because we recently found out that we have the same taste in fashion accessories!

Selena opened up about her favorite clothing items and accessories and we must say, her simplicity is surprising and refreshing! If you expected her to say she loves wearing designer clothes and jewelry, you’ve guessed wrong. The lovely singer said that her favorite clothing item are jeggings!

“I love jeggings – they’re so comfortable.”

As for her favorite accessories, Selena mentioned that she loves scarves and necklaces! Us too!!! The “A Year Without Rain” said she just loves to accessorize her outfits: “I buy scarves and necklaces in loads of different colors and textures too. These accessories can help give you a vintage look.”

What can we say? We love scarves too and we are very aware of their versatility and ability to transform any outfit! We even featured Selena and her red knit infinity scarf a while back because we thought it was so cute how she wore that scarf every where, from red carpet appearances to shopping sprees.

Do you love Selena’s red infinity scarf? Here’s how you can achieve her chic look: pair your outfit with  La Purse’s red infinity ruffle scarf, priced at $14.95, or try on the red plush knit scarf, $17.99.

Now that you’ve read all about Selena’s favorite fashion items, tell us about you. What are your favorite fashion accessories?

Here’s a recap of last year’s best scarf looks featuring your favorite celebrities:

1. The Light Pink Scarf featuring Jennifer Aniston and Sarah Jessica Parker

Here’s a relaxed Jennifer Aniston on the set of her movie “Just Go With It” wearing what we call “the perfect casual chic outfit”. We rarely get to see the fashionable actress in something other than perfectly tailored clothes, perfect hair and make-up so this look is kind of refreshing.  Her pink pashmina shawl was a huge fashion hit in March 2010!

Sarah Jessica Parker can rock a trash bag if she wanted to so it’s no wonder her pinks scarf look is one of our favorites. Here she is looking stylish in an all black ensemble paired with a lovely light pink pashmina shawl. Notice how she added a touch of glamour to the scarf by creating the big bow effect in front.
