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).

Even if you didn't go to Coachella this year, you can still don a flower headband (preferably somewhere with air conditioning) and look at pictures of the boho-awesome decor from California's Indio Valley. Besides the VIP parties and concerts, there were a ton of mind-bending structures to get design inspiration from - including a very large snail (yes, snail). Here are a few of our favorites:

Andy Warhol switched perfumes every few months, so that each period of his life would have its own scent. After a single season, he explained, "I never go back to wearing it again; it becomes part of my permanent smell collection." This spring, you could do worse than to follow his lead. Think of it as building your preferred olfactory memory library: Would you rather associate sunny sidewalks with garbage waft, or with the asphalt and pollen top-notes of Serpentine by Comme des Garçons? Here are 33 fragrances to remember spring 2014 by.

Choosing clothes for a plus-size body shouldn't be any more difficult than choosing clothes for a smaller-size physique. And, while the times are a-changin' with more size options than ever before, some of those clothes out there haven't quite caught up with what the full-figured consumer actually wants.

Is festival season your favorite time of year? Well, Hollywood's right there with you, and this weekend, some of its hottest A-listers soaked up the Cali sun right along with troves of Coachella goers. And when they weren't rocking out to Haim, Justin Bieber (!), and Lorde, they were hitting up the festival's luxest parties from the annual Lacoste shindig to the H&M Loves Music event (so no, they weren't bunking three to a room at the nearest Holiday Inn like some people we know).

- 8 hours ago | CommentsEXCLUSIVE: Ellie Goulding on Performing at the Royal Wedding—And How Divergent Inspired Her to Get a New Tattoo!by Elana Fishman
Last Friday, Ellie Goulding captivated the Coachella crowd with a high-octane set that included some of her biggest hits-"Burn," "Anything Could Happen" and "Lights" among them. The British songstress has had a major couple of years by anyone's standards-for starters, Kate Middleton and Prince William hand-picked her to perform at their royal wedding in 2011. Over the past four years, she's also sold over five million albums and 15 million songs worldwide. And then there's the Divergent factor to consider; in addition to contributing one of the YA film adaptation's most memorable tracks, "Beating Heart," the pop superstar's also featured on the movie's score. Not too shabby for a 27-year-old.
I caught up with Goulding in her trailer just a few hours before she hit Coachella's main stage. Read on for the secrets behind her incredible, ever-changing hair looks, her thoughts on playing the royal wedding and why her involvement in Divergent left her longing for some new ink!
Lucky: You're always ahead of the curve when it comes to hair trends-you had pink hair years before anyone else, and an undercut way before it was considered a "thing." How do you decide when it's time for a new look-and what are you planning to try next?
Ellie Goulding: Usually when my hair starts falling out from all that bleach, that's when I start thinking it's time to change it [laughs]. I actually got this platinum color done just yesterday-before, it was more of a dirty blonde. As long as you eat the right stuff and take your vitamins, I think it's OK to mess around with the color. I have extensions in right now-my natural hair hits right about here [motions to the tops of her shoulders]-but the next thing I want to do is cut it. I run a lot, and for that, it's just so much easier to have short hair.
How short are you thinking? Like a true bob?
Yeah, maybe! That'd be good, right?
Totally. So your music is a huge part of the new Divergent movie-if you lived in the story's post-apocalyptic world, which faction do you think you'd wind up in?
I kind of remind myself of Tris in a weird way-I feel like I wouldn't necessarily fit into any of them, and that I'd be Divergent too. But Dauntless, if I had to pick, because they're really fearless and take risks.
Are you an adrenaline junkie? I could see you being into roller coasters and things like that...
You know, I'm not naturally, but I make myself do it. I make myself go on rides and go skydiving and do scary things like that. Skydiving's one of those things you just have to do before you die, I think, to get that natural high.
You wear a few of Tris' tattoos in the "Beating Heart" video. I know those were temporary, but has being a part of the movie inspired you to get any new ink or the real variety?
Yes-I'm getting a new one soon! I like red ink a lot, so it'll be something in red for sure. I can't tell you exactly what it'll be, only because I don't want to jinx it! Right now I just have a bunch of small ones…they're kind of like "jewelry tattoos." I have a couple in white ink, which wears off pretty quickly-you have to touch them up-but it looks so cool.
Back in 2011, you performed at Prince William and Kate Middleton's wedding, which is obviously a huge deal. Were you shocked when you got that call inviting you to sing at the reception?
Yeah-I genuinely thought I was a cover-up for someone else! But no, it turns out they're just big fans of my music. And so I think the party was a real reflection of who they are as a couple-they wanted to have the wedding exactly as they wanted it, nothing crazy. It was pretty cool to be asked, though. Definitely one of the best nights of my life!
Style-wise, who's really inspiring you right now-either within the music industry or outside of it?
I like people who take risks, who might wear something completely casual one day and put on something totally crazy the next, so Katy Perry and Rita Ora-who's a good friend of mine-are both up there. Cara Delevingne, too-I feel like we have a really similar sense of style. I'm very much a tomboy at heart!

What? I thought to myself. A baby to Disney? That would be torture!
But as it turns out, Jacquelyn and her family had a wonderful three-day trip to Disney-instead of the squalling, whining, exhausting fest I would be prone to imagine (I'm a fearful kind of mom, I guess), their family got to experience the fun and magic that makes Disney the stuff of memories that last a lifetime.
And although Jacquelyn is the adventurous, calm mom that would think of taking a baby to Disney in the first place, she also is passing along some tips for other moms for making a trip to Disney with baby picture-perfect. - By Chaunie Brusie

- 9 hours ago | CommentsAh, Disney Princes. They're the stuff of Disney legend and have populated many a happy thought, not to mention countless imaginary boyfriend wishlists. (Don't deny it). And it's not hard to see why. Dashing and brave, these are men who aren't afraid to rescue their Disney damsels from danger, or even be rescued by their lady loves when they find themselves in distress. That being said, there's a reason certain kinds of love stories live on in fairy tales, mainly because a lot of the pick-up tactics Disney Princes rely on probably wouldn't work out that well in real life. -By Pilar Clark
