'They will save your life': Nicole Richie's vibrant style weapon makes the greatest holiday gift

As a style icon and accessory aficionado, Nicole Richie wears many hats — er, we mean scarves. Her new lifestyle collection, Honey Minx, which is available on, showcases one of her fashion must-haves: a stunning scarf that gives a tired outfit an instant boost.

Whether you wrap it around your hair (bye bye bedhead), sling it around your shoulders, or, as Richie expertly demonstrates in the video above, toss it over a white blouse to disguise a red wine stain, a scarf belongs in your closet — and, of course, makes a perfect holiday present.

“Scarves add layers to any outfit, which is a must for me. They are special, personal and perfect for gifting, as it makes a person feel like you were thinking of them,” says Richie. “They will save your life this holiday season.”

We couldn’t agree more, because a scarf is both gorgeously personal and utterly versatile.

These soft scarves evoke a casual elegance with their delicate prints and understated hues. Nicole wears Eternal Bloom Silk Scarf in midnight blue and blush, $58, Honey Minx. This is a small-size scarf, measuring 25.59 in. x 25.59 in.

You’ll soar with these colorful and chic floral scarves, inspired by wild butterflies. Eternal Butterfly Silk Scarf in sky blue, stone gray or pink (pictured on Nicole), $85, Honey Minx. This is a large-size scarf, measuring 34.6 in. x 34.6 in.

Or, wait for it — Richie suggests that you tie one around your handbag.

Which is why a scarf is Richie’s go-to fashion accent.

“Does everybody need a silk scarf? Yes, they do.” she proclaims.

So for neckwear newbies, Richie has some tips for selecting the right one for you — or, for a friend, parent, teacher or just about anyone.

“I’m somebody who gravitates towards colors and prints. I love a contrast print,” she says. “I think when you’re picking anything, honestly though, it’s all about feel. What do you gravitate toward?”
