What is it about scarves that makes them the greatest accessory for every occasion? They can add a splash of color when tied to a bag, or a touch of cozy on crisp fall evenings. Scarves can ward off a chilly summer night, or make a quick, chic turban on a bad-hair day. For all of these reasons (and so many more), a beautiful piece of fabric is a must-have for every wardrobe. And now, with baby on the way, there are completely new uses for an oversized scarf -- let that summer staple be your lifesaver when you need a nursing cover, some stroller shade or a quick-fix baby sling.
