Splurge or steal: Cool ombre scarves for spring and how to wear them

Chan Luu ombre scarf on Cool Mom Picks

When I saw this Chan Luu ombre scarf on Net-a-Porter I nearly died with envy. I want to eat it it’s so gorgeous. Or at least wrap myself in the gorgeous cashmere-silk blend fabric and never take it off. If you’re wondering how to wear a scarf when winter is a memory (buh-bye, won’t miss you), ombre is hot right now, and light scarves are a fabulous way to pull together even a t-shirt and jeans, soften up a biker jacket, or add interest to a dress instead of more jewelry.

But alas, as much as I love everything Chan Luu, right now this one would definitely tax the spring accessory budget at $205. Fortunately, you can find gorgeous ombre scarves from cotton to silks to light wools, in all different price ranges. Happy accessorizing!

    Love the scarves with the biker jacket. A simple leather bracelet in a complimentary color would be interesting
