If the crisp, early morning air is anything to go by, cold-weather days are well on their way – meaning now is the time to slip into something a little cosier. The first thing on our list? The perfect scarf. From oversized blanket styles to sumptuous faux fur favourites, here are the scarves you’ll be wearing all winter…
1. Colour Theory
Proving that they’re not solely for summer, rainbow brights are holding their own as we move through AW18. Bold hues of blue, violet, pink, orange and mustard yellow are seen across the season’s statement scarves, mixing with super-soft textures and long-line designs to create an ‘it’ accessory that’ll keep you cosy as temperatures fall.
2. Blanket Term
Blanket scarves might not be anything new but this season, the coveted cold-weather staple feels fresher than ever before. The secret to its style revival lies in its new-found fondness for pattern and print, from striking rainbow stripes to cut-about spots in cool monochrome palettes. We’ll be wearing ours with everything from denim jackets to cosy winter coats.
3. Check Please
The perennial print of our autumn/winter wardrobes, checks have undergone a style overhaul for the season ahead. While classic tartans and plaids still remain relevant, the new era of checked scarves are here with oversized motifs and unexpected colour combinations, elevating the everyday with something that feels a little more directional.
4. Fur Time
The faux fur scarf is back but not as you know it. Having moved on from the soft-touch stoles and capes that feel more suited to after-dark invites, this season’s plush pieces will slot straight into your everyday wardrobe, providing unrivalled warmth in cold, blustery weather. From faux fur snoods in deep berry shades to teddy-textured scarves in bold fuchsia, these sumptuous styles are set to become the ultimate fashion investment as chilly days make their way back in.
