During winter’s coldest months, dressing for the elements often takes precedence over dressing for style. Between all the overcoats and parkas, there are few opportunities to inject an outfit with personality. Except, of course, for scarves.
A well-chosen scarf can be a new lease on life for an old coat. Even when at home, scarves offer insulation from drafty rooms along with a welcome bit of above-the-waist visual interest—which goes a long way when Zoom-ing. A great scarf comes down to a few things: color, print and texture. It’s worth having a variety of all three on hand to add that little something extra to your standard attire. From solid cashmere classics to brushed, checked and indigo-dyed standouts, we’ve rounded up eight of the best to buy now.
