Not all scarves are created equal, which is precisely why we’re stocking up on all of our favorite fabrics and patterns in preparation for colder weather. And thankfully there’s no shortage of style inspiration out there to show us how to rock them until spring arrives.
Celebrate National Scarf Day on September 27 by scrolling on to see how some of our favorite IGers are wearing their super soft accessories, from that in-between season bandana to a giant blanket-inspired knit.
Cooler weather always calls for some go-to layers. Throw on some of your favorite pieces and then top it all off with a chunky, colorful pop.
Fall may officially be here, but it’s still pretty warm in most areas of the country. To get yourself in the fall spirit without breaking a sweat, opt for a breezy, colorful bandana and make a statement out of it.
For those of us that like to go all out every autumn (we see you), a flannel scarf is a must. Layer it over a solid color and let it be the cozy centerpiece of your look.
Keeping your look a simple black-and-white? Take it to the next level with a fall-appropriate pop of color around your neck and shoulders.
You just can’t go wrong with a timeless monochromatic look. Mix up your knit patterns and reach for a design that’s in the same color palette as your sweater for a warm, elevated look.
Look, we’re all aware that a scarf is basically just a blanket that you can wear outside of your house. So go ahead and take advantage (and look super cute) with an oversized design that you can curl up with everywhere.
Think of animal print as a fun neutral. And whether you’re leaving your yoga studio or venturing out for a hot beverage, it’s pretty safe to say that it’ll go with just about anything in your closet.
Pattern-mixing is for everyone, especially when it involves two cold-weather staples. So grab that super soft tartan and that preppy gingham and go to town!
There’s cozy-cute and then there’s match-your-lipstick-to-your-scarf cozy-cute. I think we all know which one wins. If you’re low-key obsessed with your winter accessory, go ahead and reach for a hydrating lipstick to match.
When in doubt (or all black), pick something neon. This vibrant accessory is perfect for standing out and keeping you majorly warm.
