Miranda Kerr, Kate Moss, Olivia Palermo and their lightweight summer scarves

One of my “secret” styling tips is always adding an extra something–which I call “the third piece”–to my outfit, especially for the basic T-shirt (or blazer)-and-jeans looks. A lady-like handbag, a pair of trendy sunglasses, delicate shoes, statement jewelry, or even just a scarlet lip, can instantly take a basic outfit to a whole new level.

But among all of those “third pieces”, my favorite is — scarves! I have a soft spot for scarves and my scarf collection never stops growing. I always keep a scarf in my bag wherever I go. During summer time, a nice lightweight silk-chiffon scarf can keep us stylish while still give us the just amount of coverage we need. It also can be a comfy blanket in the airplane or a stunning cover-up at the beach.

Besides the certain material, I also prefer a scarf with prints. Compared to solid colored scarves, printed ones can add personality to our outfits, can cheer up a plain color palette or create the interesting juxtaposition with other prints.

Below are the details of our featured looks today, hope they can give you some inspirations about how to wear scarves in the summer!
