Men's spring fashion could and should include this staple winter accessory

As the snow begins to melt (finally!) and there's a glimmer of hope for spring in the not-so-distant future, it's time to start thinking about updating last year's spring wardrobe; or at the very least, what you need this spring to make a complete fashion statement.

Here's one that may throw you for a loop; scarves.

Yes, some may argue that scarves are better left in your winter totes, packed away in your attic after the white death melts and the flowers start pushing through the cold ground. I beg to differ.

Men already have limited options when it comes to accessorizing; and I use that term loosely gentlemen. Overkill jewelry and Paris Hilton glasses are not what I'm referring to.

You can pair a light scarf with a woven for an extra pop of color, or drape it around your neck for a casual, relaxed look. For me it's not only a fashion statement, but also an extra layer of warmth that I still need in the chill of spring breezes and unpredictable Ohio weather.

You can also add a scarf to a dressier outfit in place of a tie, pair it was a vest or even pair one with a tank top (yes, tank top) for a light, summer look.

You can find men's scarves just about anywhere these days; high end at Hermes Paris or more affordable options at H&M. If you're like me, a $1.99 vintage find at a thrift shop does the trick and is both affordable and unique. Whatever you decide, don't pack all your scarves away just yet. See if you have any lightweight options that could be recycled for spring use.
