The best winter scarves for women to keep you cozy all season
It may just be a rectangle, or a square, of material. But the humble scarf is one of the most hardworking items in your closet during the winter. It keeps you warm. But, more than that, it can add color and panache to your outfits. In this article, you will find the best winter scarves for women and how to style them.
What to look out for in a winter scarf
To stay warm during winter, look out for wool or cashmere, or a blend.
If you have a favorite neutral coat, you can easily update it with a colorful or print scarf. Make sure to have at least a few scarves that look good with your coats in a color that complements your face and hair. If you have grey hair, check our article on the best colors to complement gray hair.
Choose a scarf that is big enough to give your neck some coverage during the cool months. If you want it to do double duty as a shawl, perhaps because you are traveling, opt for a wide, blanket scarf style.
