Scarves, stoles or dupattas are a great way to accessorise any outfit. However, some of us do feel that this added layer of clothing is good for winters only. Wrong! Not just as a winter accessory, this piece of cloth is super versatile and can work all-year round, if you only know how to style it right. We put together a list of the best scarves, stoles and dupattas you can style your OOTD with even when the sun’s shining her warmest or when she's playing hide and seek!

Mesmora’s khadi embroidered stoles dupattas and printed triangle scarfs are that #somethingdifferent you have been waiting for in accessories.

Make a high messy bun or ponytail and tie the stole around it for a vintage glam look. We told you scarves are more than a winter accessory. That said, you can definitely use these to keep your necks warm when it gets cold.
Beaded scarves, FTW! A scarf that also works as a piece of jewellery, why not? Purple Sunshine's exotic range of beaded scarves will add oodles of pizzazz to your outfit.
