Now that spring has sprung, it's time to trade in those heavy winter accessories and opt for light and airy pieces.

The silk scarf can be worn as a boho head warp à la Nicole Richie or tied in a ladylike fashion around the neck, a look that Grace Kelly made popular.

There are also unconventional uses for a silk scarf, as our friends at PopSugar point out in the video above. You could wrap it around a bangle for the easiest DIY project we've ever seen, or weave it into a thick braid for a flirty approach. The most practical of the bunch: when worn as a belt a scarf can transform your basic jeans-and-tee ensemble from bland to bold.
