When the cold sets in, we hunt for something to warm us. Besides jumper and coat, there’s one accessory we always head for when the temperature falls: it’s that cosy and soft scarf.

Looking back into history, scarves began having a huge impact on the fashion industry in 1937 with the creation of the famous Hermes scarves called ‘carre’: a wearable art in the simplest lash that was loved by the elegant, late Grace Kelly and many others.

Today, scarves are still a woman’s best friend as they transform your outfit more creatively and you can find them in all sorts of sizes, shapes and colors. However, even though this season calls for chic silk scarves with graphic and bold color, chunky knit scarves aren’t going anywhere, especially the blanket and oversized scarf silhouettes in wool.

This Fashionista is the perfect example, as she has perfectly pulled off the season’s warmest/oversized scarf taking the look to the next level. This Fashionista completes her ensemble with a wool coat, a pair of ripped jeans and waterproof boots, ideal for those rainy days, especially if you live in Manchester. Every time you are in a hurry, just pull an oversized scarf out of your closet and transform your outfit.

How To: If you feel like this outfit is very simple and want to take it to the next level, there are many ways to wear a scarf. Loop it around your neck and wear it as a blanket scarf or cap; wrap it around your neck and then belt it; leave it hanging for a more casual look; for a more ’70s style just drape it around your shoulders. Whichever you decide, be sure to add some extra accessories such as big sunglasses and high heels to make it more stylish.
