Last week I think everyone had a WTF moment. Cold? In October? In Florida? No way! It was definitely a surprise to wake up and have it be 30 degrees outside. I mean come on, Mother Nature, we're not North Carolina. We're Florida - it shouldn't get cold here. Thankfully, it seems to have warmed up for now, but the cold weather got me thinking: Winter is approaching. And what better way to celebrate the upcoming winter season than discussing one of my favorite accessories: scarves.

I fell in love with scarves when I studied abroad in London last spring because they are useful on a daily basis. There is no reason why Floridians should not have a few in our closet. On those random cold days, a scarf is the perfect accessory, and even when it's not cold outside, when worn properly a scarf can be your most versatile piece of clothing.

There are two ways to wear a scarf. If your outfit is plain and simple in color (jeans and a black or white shirt) spice the outfit up by adding a really colorful scarf. If you've got some colors in your outfit already, go with a more subtle scarf to bring out a color that's already in your outfit. Scarves are just like shoes in that sense: You can make them a bold statement or a classy accent.

Tying a scarf is where it gets interesting. Sure, everyone can wrap it around their neck, but scarves can double as headbands, belts or even hip wraps if they're wide enough. So if you spot a wicked scarf at a store or if you've already got some stowed away in your closet, buy it or break it out and try wearing it. Winter will soon be upon us, so embrace it and accessorize accordingly. And if it doesn't get cold anytime soon? Be adventurous and use your scarf another way. Check out for a wide variety of ways to tie a scarf, and welcome winter with style and class.
