It’s no secret that dressing for winter can feel like a dreary task, but this Fashionista is making the best of the cold weather in a smart and stylish way. In Montreal, especially in the middle of January, it’s tough to get away with wearing anything less than a hat, scarf and the warmest boots possible. It’s generally a good idea to stick to neutral colors so that these pieces can be used universally across your entire wardrobe.
Though this Fashionista is demonstrating this well, she’s also showing us a great way to spice up our winter looks with a fun patterned scarf. The best part about this pairing is that the scarf is bright enough to stand out against her classic black pea coat, but doesn’t clash with any of her other winter accessories.
Printed scarves are a great way to make your winter look stand out because unlike mittens or bulky hats, they are more versatile. You can keep them on once you get inside, where they remain an integral part of your outfit. This means scarves also acceptable in spring and fall, making patterned scarves a great accessory to invest in. Unlike most patterns, animal print is not generally associated with a specific season the way bright florals are with spring and rich tribals are with fall, so it’s a great choice for anytime. Pairing it with classic, neutral pieces is a great way to keep you looking classy and not too wild. Try this basic H&M scarf or this one as a thicker, warmer scarf for those extra cold days.
