Even though it’s freezing, you don’t want to . But with so many great accessories, luxurious knits, and the holidays to look forward to, winter and late fall definitely don’t have to be dull or unfashionable. The scarf is back in a big way this season, and its endless possibilities make it a stylish must-have for anyone’s wardrobe.
Beautiful, exotic silk scarves are a classic item with a cult-like following, whether it’s an expensive Hermes collector’s item or a more budget-appropriate piece from a local vintage store. The eye-catching designs and smooth texture of a silk scarf add elegance to plain tops and a pop of colour to neutral outfits.
The pleats on a ruffled scarf are charming, playful and feminine without appearing age-inappropriate or unprofessional. With ruching being so popular on dresses and blouses, it seemed only natural that scarves would be the next to follow.
What could complement a dark wool peacoat better than a cream-coloured knitted scarf? Perfect for that Sunday afternoon of skating and hot chocolate, thick yarn and popcorn knits are not just for sweaters anymore. These scarves are great for using to layer over lightweight dresses, helping to create a more seasonally acceptable look.
This season is all about the patterns, and quaint, quirky intarsia scarves are right on trend. Stay cozy in Fair Isle designs, wintery snowflakes, and bold, colorful stripes.
The classic pashmina:
Bursting onto the fashion scene two seasons ago in a cloud of colour and delicate fabric, pashmina scarves have quickly become ubiquitous with the well-dressed fashionista. They have also gained a reputation as the scarf which can be worn countless ways to suit your mood. The pashmina can also be a shawl, a wrap, or a cover-up for a sleeveless dress depending on the occasion. As scarves, pashminas are warm without feeling bulky or uncomfortable, available in every price range, and the perfect accessory for days when your ensemble just doesn’t feel complete.
It’s the love child of the turtleneck and the knit winter scarf! Round scarves are easy to wear, very trendy this year, and unique. For those of you who hate wasting time in the morning tying a scarf just so, these are both funky and practical.
