If you don’t know her by name, you definitely know her colorful scarves. That’s because Dr. Deborah Birx, White House coronavirus response coordinator, is rarely seen without one draped around her shoulders. Her silky scarf addiction even has several much-deserved Instagram accounts.

And whether the good doctor knows it or not, she’s supporting one of the hottest trends both on and off the runways. Brands like Givenchy, Etro, Roland Mouret and Missoni sent spring-appropriate colorful scarves down their respective runways during the Spring 2020 season. And long before that, street stylists were styling their strands with statement scarves.

While we love Birx’s super sophisticated spin on wearing the must-have accessory, we suggest you embrace all the different ways to rock scarves. Follow fashion’s lead by sporting them in or around your hair and wrapped around bags. And feel free to come up with brand new ways to flaunt your favorite. (We recommend donning one as a makeshift tie.)

In case your supply is dwindling or nonexistent, we rounded up the best colorful scarves suitable for the season. Whether you prefer abstract patterns or spring florals, we’ve got you covered. Plus, you don’t have to break the bank to get the look.
