Scarves are traditionally worn during the cooler months, but you can also rock them during the summer. Those sleeveless and off-shoulder tops are perfect when you're outside, but the moment you step inside an air-conditioned establishment, you will need a cover-up; that's where your trusty scarf comes in! Bonus: You can also double this as a beach wrap or beach mat.
