During summer we are all about minimal clothing: basic T-shirts, maxi dresses, cute skirts and gladiator sandals. The heat isn’t really allowing us to load up on clothes or rock the “layering” trend we all love so much so the only thing left to do to make our looks pop is accessorizing.

First, there’s statement jewelry. You can’t go through summer without enriching your jewelry collection with a couple of statement necklaces, cocktail rings and big earrings.

Second, we love statement scarves. These are perfect for summer evenings, when the weather cools a little and you need extra coverage. Here are our top ten statement scarves and since these pieces speak for themselves, we’ll let you decide if you love them as much as we do:

Go neon, or go home! Neon Orange Pashmina Shawl, $24.95

Fashion Scarf Trends: Neon Colors

Probably the hottest summer trend and our personal favorite, neon colors are taking over wardrobes everywhere. Whether we’re talking about neon dresses, neon nail polish or neon accessories, this trend is everywhere!

Celebrities like Kim Kardashian, Cheryl Cole and Jessica Alba, just to name a few, have made headlines with the fabulous neon colored dresses they have worn to the latest red carpet events.

While we love neon dresses, let’s face it, not everyone can pull them off. Head-to-toe neon orange or neon yellow, on its own or paired with other neon shades, is not easy to look good in. However, for lovers of the vibrant neon colors, the trend has extended to fashion accessories: jewelry and scarves.

We already did a fabulous feature for this season’s hottest neon jewelry trends so naturally, we’re going to focus on neon fashion scarves right now.

The best thing about neon fashion scarves is that not only they look amazing, but they’re also really easy to pull off by mostly anyone thanks to their versatility. Not to mention they can really bring any boring outfit to life.

Trending right now: neon pink, neon yellow, neon orange and bold combos of these colors.

Neon Pink Pashmina Shawl ($24.95)

Lemon Yellow Pashmina Shawl ($24.95)

Neon Orange Pashmina Shawl ($24.95)

Reversible Yellow and Neon Pink Shawl ($29.45)

There are tons of great summer looks you can create with neon colored scarves from wearing them as cute cover-ups at the beach, glam turbans or combine two of them into one fashion-forward scarf!

What do you think about neon colored scarves: Hot or Not?

Easy, Breezy Summer Scarves

If you are a huge fan of wearing scarves like we are, chances are you love wearing them all year long, even during the summer. And just like us, you’re constantly searching for easy, breezy scarves you can wear even during the warm season without feeling too hot or uncomfortable. Well, let us tell you a secret: now it’s easier than ever to shop for lightweight scarves that are perfectly wearable even during sunny summer days. They offer coverage from the damaging UV rays and when the sun sets they gently protect you from the chilly weather.

Since our summer wardrobe consists mostly of maxi dresses, T-shirts, short shorts and other types of summer clothing, a scarf can add that much needed pop of color to your summer outfit. For example, a maxi dress in a solid color looks amazing when paired with a cute scarf in a bright color. And how about accessorizing your tee and jeans with a funky lightweight scarf? Your outfit will instantly go from OK to fabulous!

Here is a set of lightweight scarves that can enhance your summer look instantly:

The Handmade Crochet Scaf – this one is perfect for those of you who are looking to achieve that romantic boho-chic look. Pair it with your blue jeans and you’re good to go!

Blue Handmade Crochet Scarf   ($34.99)

The Double Layered Silk Print Scarf – the name might say double layered, but trust us, this scarf is easy as a feather and it feels incredible. You can go wild with your summer outfit and opt for a chic animal print scarf or for a scarf in a hot summer color like fuchsia or green.

Blue Double Layered Animal Print Silk Scarf ($18.95)

Double Layered Fuchsia & Blue Print Silk Scarf ($18.95)

The Light Weight Scarf – is, by definition, the perfect summer scarf. It’s light, soft and super easy to wear. For a great day time look you can opt for a nude color such as walnut, while for the evening we recommend adding a touch of sparkle.

Another reason why lightweight scarves are so popular during the summer is that they can easily be worn as cover ups and sarongs at the beach.

Light Weight Walnut Scarf ($9.95)

Light Weight Metallic Silver Dot Orange Scarf ($18.95)

Hope you have enjoyed the selection!
