Often a wardrobe afterthought, the lightweight scarf - that forgiving, one-size-fits-all accessory-- has a fashionable past. The pink scarf Grace Kelly wore in To Catch a Thief helped her become even more of a fashion icon. Faye Dunaway's paisley scarf, tied bandit-style 'round her neck in Bonnie and Clyde, became a symbol of timeless cool.
But film references aside, a scarf can serve a valuable function this season: It's the perfect thing to throw on for a cool spring morning, paired with some mixed and matched jewelry, along with the perfect colorful spring bag. The Cut rounded up 20 great printed scarves under $100 - and suggestions on how to wear them (whether you prefer a chokerlike style or a traditional slip-knot).
