Lightweight Scarves You Can Start Wearing Now

I have absolutely no shame in saying that I am one of those crazy fall people. Once September 1st hits, my mind and body automatically go into a full-out fall-pumpkin-spice-everything-Halloween mode. The only problem is, the weather is not f*cking cooperating. I can’t really get into the spirit of my most favorite time of the year when it’s literally still 90 degrees outside. I’m dying to wear my baggiest sweaters and faux fur coats again, so I guess in the meantime, I’m settling for a less ~extra~ transition into fall fashion. This means layering up casual T-shirts and day dresses with trendy lightweight scarves that won’t give you heat stroke. Here are a few lightweight scarves you can start wearing now.

1. J. Crew Lightweight Wool Scarf In Vintage Floral

Don’t let the word “wool” scare you. Although it sounds suffocating, this scarf is made from a super soft lightweight material that isn’t itchy or overbearingly thick. It’s not too bulky so you can totes throw it over a solid colored dress or plain white T-shirt on chilly mornings. The pale pink with wine and olive green notes are perfect for the transition from summer to fall.

2. Lauren Ralph Lauren Celia Silk Chiffon Scarf

Chiffon is key to staying cool but looking hot. It’s literally so thin, you’ll probs forget you’re wearing anything at all, but it adds elevation and flair to a lame and lazy outfit—especially when it’s mostly black (duh). Now you’ve got your minimal hint of color.

3. Free People Songbird Bandana

Unless you live under a rock, it’s pretty much a fact that western vibes will be everywhere this fall, from tacky cowboy boots to fringe to bandanas. I feel like this is totally going to be one of those trends everyone will make fun of, but secretly buy on their phone while on their lunch break just because everyone on Instagram will be wearing it. Calling it now. If you don’t feel ready to contribute yet, remember that small scarves don’t have to be necessarily worn on your body. Accessorize your bag or some sh*t and you’ll look ready for next season.

4. Bernie of New York Silk Chiffon Wrap

Wear it as a scarf around your neck or wear it as a cardigan— Who cares? Either way, it’ll still look bomb. That’s the beauty of a wrap. Until it literally begins to feel like fall outside, ditch your everyday summer jacket for an airy neutral wrap. You can grab this and go to the office, happy hour, and everything in between with.

5. Charming Charlie Dru Floral Scarf

If it isn’t already, Charming Charlie should be your new go-to when it comes to anything accessory related, especially scarves. They have a ridiculously diverse and affordable selection, so you’ll def find what you’re looking for. While many of us are still accepting the fact that summer is basically over, Charming Charlie has chic lightweight scarves you can wear a million different ways to hold you over until temps begin to drop.
