A symbol of femininity, a scarf is a piece of fabric usually made of fancy silk. This fashion accessory is worn around the neck by women for warmth, elegance and religious purposes.

Besides silk, scarves are also available in other materials such as linen, cotton or wool. Long and thin scarves, square-shaped scarves, or pashmina scarves, they come in a wide variety of shapes and styles.

Small square scarves or bandanas are quite easy to carry. They are made up of cotton or silk. Whereas neck scarves are a bit larger than bandanas.

Long or oblong scarves are in the shape of rectangles but less wide than shawls. Made from wool, they can be either draped over the shoulders or worn around your neck.

No matter what they are popularly called, these finished pieces of fabrics always come in handy to up your style quotient.
