My favorite accessory this summer is a scarf. Not a wintry, thick scarf but the thin, silky kind.

They come in every color and pattern and are a great way to add pizazz to any outfit ... especially at the beach. And a scarf makes you feel a little more dressed when you're just wearing a slinky tank dress.

I have a few vintage ones from my grandmother and love finding new ways to wear it.

Check out my 15 fab ways to sport a scarf this summer ...

  1. Tie it loose around your neck like in the photo.
  2. Twist it and wear in a thin tight band around your neck -- very '50s.
  3. Like a tie ... long or short -- hello, stylish menswear.
  4. Use it as a headband by folding into one long strand.
  5. Wear as a headscarf like Johnny Depp in Pirates of the Caribbean.
  6. Tie it on your purse for a little flash.
  7. Wrap it around your wrist for a pop of color.
  8. For a long scarf, wear as a colorful thin belt around your hips.
  9. Or as a wide belt that goes around your tummy.
  10. Turn it into a little purse. Really, here's how
  11. As an ascot, you preppy gal, you.
  12. Around your shoulders as a shawl.
  13. Big scarf? Try it as a sarong over your bathing suit.
  14. Around your bicep a la Sarah Jessica Parker.
  15. Make a tube top like this ...
