5 Vibrant Scarves for Travel in Fall and Winter

When tree leaves turn from yellow to brown and small patches of snow slowly cover the streets, it’s time to review your wardrobe and add some vibrant colors. I can’t think of a better way to do it than incorporating some signature scarves to pack for your travel adventures in the fall and winter. Playful colors and engrossing patterns of these essential accessories will lift your mood even when it’s grey outside. 

I must admit, sunny Southern California often allows me to skip the vibrant warm scarves altogether. When I travel, though, a couple of the bright accessories always find their way into my suitcase. In the fall and winter when heavy sweaters fill your luggage pretty quickly, scarves don’t take a lot of space. And you can always count on them to instantly refresh your outfit and travel in style.
