We obsess over luxurious bags, covet glamorous shoes, and crave sparkly jewelry; however, there is one accessory that can take any old outfit to the next fashionable level, yet it is consistently overlooked. What fabulous item is this, you might ask? That unassuming classic, the humble scarf.

Whether it is made of plush triple-ply cashmere, slippery silk or plain cotton, the right scarf can lend a certain je ne sais quoi to your look (something European women know very well). And while there are many gorgeous designer scarves, an inexpensive number sourced from a flea market can be just as stylish – a great scarf is one of the most egalitarian accessories.

So without further adieu, here are some favorites, in a range of price points:

Top Of The Line:
You really can’t get any more timeless than a Hermes scarf , and the colors in this one are just incredible, and Pucci’s signature prints are just as enduring – and if you need another reason to add one to your collection, these vibrant scarves were favored by Jackie O.

These fringed linen scarves by Love Quotes come in an amazing range of colors, and their size makes them incredibly versatile, and this ice blue silk wrap from Elyse C. Bec is equally adaptable.

Cheap Thrills:
Sometimes you just need a quick fashion fix, and Target is the perfect place to pick up a bright scarf for under $20. For inexpensive scarves in every color of the rainbow, however, look no further than American Apparel’s sheer jersey scarf – it’s only $15.
