If there’s one thing I love this time of year, it’s a scarf. They’re comfy, warm, and the perfect accessory. I’m someone who usually keeps her outfit pretty simple. I love sticking to the basics, but I hate the prospect of being boring. Find yourself wearing jeans and a plain tee or sweater? Throw on a scarf, and your outfit is instantly upgraded. What’s even better about this solution? You can pretty much wear the same exact outfit over and over again with different scarves, and it’s as though you’re wearing entirely new ensembles everyday. It’s the perfect crime (of fashion, anyway). And what’s even better than that? You don’t have to spend a fortune on a scarf, ut instead can find an adorable one for as little as $10.
No matter who you are, how you dress or what you like, there’s a scarf for you. Whether you like ‘em chunky, patterned, bright or plain, and whether you’re looking for a snood or a long, flowy wrap, we’ve got you covered. I, personally, love them all, and am having the hardest time sticking to just one look. What about you…what’s your favorite?
