As it hits below 40 degrees here in Paris, and I see that it is below 10 degrees back in Denver where I will head back to in a few short weeks, a heavy coat sometimes isn’t enough armor to protect you against the bitter cold. Of course you need a warm pair of gloves and a cozy hat, but don’t forget a chunky scarf!
Scarves are very important when the temperature gets down this low because it takes much more for us to keep warm. It’s said in Paris that no one leaves home without a scarf, which after living here for more than three months, is a statement I completely agree with! Men and women alike, I rarely see an outfit being worn without a matching scarf.
I especially love this Fashionista’s patterned scarf. Her simple outfit makes the pattern of the scarf stand out that much more. Scarves are a great way to switch up any outfit. If you have a top you love, it’s hard to wear it too much without it looking like you only own a few shirts that you rotate, but mixing and matching different scarves with the same top can give it a whole new light of day. Scarves are very easy to come by in all the popular stores but patterned ones are a little harder. Don’t worry because I found some for you to make your holiday shopping a little easier! Here is a simpler two-toned Vince Camuto geo print stripe scarf if you’re looking for something a little more subtle. Try out any of these patterns at Vera Bradley or get crazy with this folkloric patch scarf at Free People.
Scarves are also a great gift for the holidays, so keep your loved ones warm and wrap up a lovely scarf this winter!
