What is it exactly?
Women are taking either designer named scarves or patterned silk scarves and wrapping it loosely around their necks, shoulders or tied tightly around their purse handles. It adds a new dimension to any outfit with the least bit of effort. Plus, it is the ultimate power charm for a purse. Take a look at this creative way to incorporate a scarf into a crossbody!
Why are they awesome?

1) Worn as a shoulder or neck scarf it is the best and most stylish way to stay warm during those freezing office meetings. It is also light enough to wear in 90 degree weather, and small enough to pack away easily in a purse. Pretty cool, right?
2) It is the fastest way to update a favorite look. Take a simple white T-shirt and skinny jeans and add a beautiful silk scarf. You instantly have a new, chic look.
3) It adds class, power, and personality to a simple black dress. The LBD is a classic and perfect for nights. When you add a power scarf, it can turn that LBD into the perfect day look with your personal signature attached.
