Cardigan sweaters are such wonderful pieces to own. You can wear them over and over, and people will never question you for wearing a cardigan a couple days in a row, but don't expect the same if you wear a shirt multiple times in a row. That's why I think cardigans can be worth spending a little money on, especially if it's a basic color and classic style, so you can wear it for a long time. I especially love the slouchy cardigans these days...they have stolen my heart. Warm and cozy or light and breezy, cardigans are so diverse and here's some I love: (once again from most to least expensive)

scarf it down

Ah scarves, the accessory that can instantly give you that oh-so-desired boho-chic look that stars like Nicole Richie, Rachel Bilson, and Sienna Miller sport so well. Scarves are now being worn all year round, people just can't seem to put them away, even for summer. Whether scarves in the summer makes sense or not, they can certainly spice up your outfit and are a great closet staple. Not to mention they keep your neck warm when it's cold...but that's just a bonus, right? With Fall just around the corner, here's a few of my favorites, from pricey to affordable:
