A staple of tights-and-boots weather, a chunky scarf yields wintry-chic flairand a hefty amount of warmth, too. I like a heavyweight scarf that doesn't completely swallow your head or burden your shoulders. It should feel comfy around your neck and be wrapped or loosely tied, almost like an ascot. I prefer wearing them with casual outfits, such as a crewneck sweater, jeans and a light jacket (like the girl above), and sticking to a muted color or pattern to get more mileage out of it. I'm all over these cozy standouts from PaulaBianco, Topshop and Asos.
