November 12, 2020 How to Style a Fall Scarf

What would autumn be without a pile of long cozy scarves to complement your cold-weather wardrobe? Before you grab one in the coming weeks for a brisk walk, coffee run or commute to work, we’ve collected a few tips on how to style a fall scarf.

Go Big

Woman in Blanket Scarf

A blanket scarf is our personal favorite. It’s heavy, soft and will keep you warm all the way to your toes. It’s best in the classic styling of tossed over one shoulder.

Keep it Imperfect

This rule is simple: don’t try too hard. If one side is a little longer than the other, you’ve got it just right. Think nonchalance.

Make it the Star

In a beautiful print or bright colors, why not make your scarf the main attraction of your outfit? Drape it loosely to your waist and show it off.

Make it a Duo

This adds more flair and more warmth: bring in a matching beanie or beret (a la Emily in Paris).
