Just last week we were toting the benefits of a simple messy topknot and while we certainly haven’t changed our tune any— just look at how care-free and beautiful these ladies look— we are making one small amendment to our position because sometimes even the best of buns need a little something extra. In this case, we’re referring to that great summer staple, the headscarf— an accessory that appears to have gotten Cara Delevingne‘s sartorial approval. The soon-to-be 22-year-old model was spotted working a colorful printed square headscarf by Sarah and Sorrentino on the streets of London last week and unsurprisingly, we’re now completely obsessed! As Cara proves, the summer accessory is a quick and easy way to elevate a wispy chignon, adding a bright pop of color (or edge should you should choose to rock a black bandana instead) to any off-duty uniform. Best of all, a silk scarf works just as easily with a sky-high ponytail or messy side-braid as it does a relaxed topknot, giving you a plethora of options to play with in the remaining weeks of summer.
To help you get started, we scoured the internet and rounded up 10 of the hottest summer scarves to buy now. Shop our editor’s top picks in the slideshow below!
