As regular readers of the Classics blog know, I am a wee bit obsessed with scarves. Specifically, 36-inch-square silk-twill ones. And for summertime, there are few better bets than Pucci.

If you haven’t been lucky enough to receive a groovy 1960s version from a beneficent aunt—or don’t have the energy to score one on eBay (worth checking out, for sure), never fear: Saks always stocks a good selection of the Italian label’s latest. 

Here is a great example. No matter how you tie it, this stylized floral print looks terrific. Plus, it’s perfect to tuck into your luggage for a trip—it can turn a simple black or white dress into a completely different outfit, while taking up very little packing space.

Bonus: It’s also ideal for those over-air-conditioned spaces, when you need just a little something extra to cut the chill.

$375 at Saks Fifth Avenue, 700 N. Michigan Ave., or
