I’m a sucker for a good hair accessory, which is why I was immediately taken by this Fashionista’s pretty headscarf. I love the way it’s tied into a lovely knot that almost looks like a flower. It’s a good way to get a spring feel into your outfit without sacrificing the needed layers of warmth — especially on days when Mother Nature has tricked us into thinking it’s winter again. The soft texture and peachy colors of the scarf contrast with the rest of her outfit: a vintage-cool leather jacket, black skinnies and beat-up combat boots.

How To: To get this Fashionista’s look, you’ll have to scour your local vintage stores, second hand shops and flea markets for a one-of-a-kind leather jacket. You might score one in a cool color with a relaxed fit like this Fashionista’s, which is perfect to throw on over black skinny pants. For a headscarf, try out this Twisted Knit Headwrap from Urban Outfitters that’s pre-knotted for your convenience. Or, get any sheer scarf in a pretty print (you’ll definitely find one while looking for a vintage leather jacket) and wrap away.
