Accessories can make or break an outfit. During the summer, accessories are usually limited to different types of jewelry and handbags. However, there is one accessory that is entirely underrated during the spring and summer months: scarves. Summer scarves are an unusual addition to an outfit that is not used to its full potential. They can add just a bit of color or pattern, add a casual vibe or add a hint of character. This Fashionista takes the leap with this statement accessory in bold, neon green. It adds the perfect amount of color to this stylish outfit.
