Some call it useless, others call it iconic - we call it: the skinny scarf. The Y2K trend that had us in a chokehold in the glory days of Lizzie McGuire and Hannah Montana, is officially back and - dare we say it - better than ever.

As much as we loved (read: despised) the pink sequin and crochet take of the skinny scarf a la 2005, we're happy to announce that the popular accessory has had a long-awaited makeover, officially gaining its cool-girl stamp of approval. Matilda Djerf and Bella Hadid are just a few of the celebs spotted wearing the scarf in its every iteration, and we want in. ASAP.

We'll admit, the skinny scarf won't do much to protect you from the elements, but it'll be the perfect cherry on top of every outfit, casual or otherwise. We've scoured the web for the best skinny scarves on the market - shop our top picks below.
