The leaves may be turning but to judge from fall fashions, spring has sprung!

There's the fab floral trend that has been in full bloom on the red carpet, and the pretty pastel-colored coats that are adding a romantic rosy hue to many a style star's outfits.

We have to admit, we're all for lending a cheerful warm weather trend to dreary days as a means of making chilly temps all the more bearable.

But for traditionalists who are wary of the seasonal style shake up, we suggest easing into the trend à la Nina Dobrev.

For a recent appearance at the 2013 Savannah film Festival, the Vampire Diaries star broke up her jeans and thick fall coat combo with an unexpectedly bright Stella & Dot scarf decorated with pretty butterflies.

Paired with her eye catching red clutch, it was a style savvy way to add a little visual interest to her basics.

While we tend to store away our lighter scarves in favor of thicker wool accessories in the fall, Dobrev proves vibrant pieces can pull double duty during the cold weather months.

The best part? A simple yet chic accessory means you can add a splash of spring to multiple outfits without having to invest in a trendy new wardrobe this autumn.
