Scarves are steadily becoming the hero accessory of the year - where bags and bling once ruled scarves have stepped in to define personal style.
Alexander McQueen started the scarf craze with his skull print creation. Every celeb from Kate Moss (bottom left) to Nicole Richie invested and the It-scarf was born.
Shortly after came the Stephen Sprouse for Louis Vuitton leopard print stole. We love Rachel Bilson's purple/pink pop which gives her easy jean and tee rig-out a lotta life and soul. This scarf comes in an array of colour variations and is loved by many a celeb from Keira Knightley to Sienna Miller and Sarah Jessica Parker.
So, once you've found your perfect pick it's time to learn how to style. If like Ms Moss you're an understated rock chick, loop it through your jeans or wear skinny around the neck. For the ladies in the house think neat neck ties while those who lean towards decorative style try tying it around your tote for a fancy kick. Our personal favourite? Wear oversized huddled around the neck for a touch of toasty delight.
