Nina Dobrev is scarf-obsessed! The Vampire Diaries actress loves to finish her go-to look—a jacket, loose tee, and black skinnies—with a patterned neck warmer, and there’s one brand she turns to again and again: Sir Alistair Rai. “Nina has the Ikat trend down pat,” creative director Kiran Rai told InStyle.com of the star’s choice of bold Ikat and print wraps in colors like turquoise and raspberry. “Her monochromatic outfits provide the perfect backdrop for a pop of color and bold Ikat pattern. The scarf takes an everyday outfit and elevates it to instant chic.” Find your own for $95 at siralistairrai.com.

Mariah Carey released her new single today! Call it a stroke of expert timing, the first song off her fourteenth studio album is named “Triumphant (Get ‘Em),” a message that resonates both with the current world Olympics (it’s the word for winners!) and her return to TV as American Idol judge (another victory). Listen to the song on Vevo and a clip of it below. The lyrics—“realize all things are possible, in your heart who’s the greatest, reach for the stars, be all that you are, and make ‘em all fall down”—will make you want to high five someone.
