It’s that time of year again! With the first coat of snow on the ground I think it is safe to say that we have all dug out our cozy scarves, mittens, hats and heavy winter coats. Though all the gear can be bulky and hide a great outfit, it is the perfect opportunity to add to a trendy look and give a boost to other pieces.

From infinity scarves to pom-pom hats, the latest winter accessories on the market are stylish, colorful and not to mention, incredibly comfortable. I believe the best way to bring out an outfit including one that is underneath a thick coat, is through a statement scarf. It balances the neckline and gives a little pop to the top half of an outfit. With chic patterns, materials and sizes, scarves are a must-have during the colder months and an easy, little pick-me-up to any look!

This Fashionista has done just that with this cozy winter look! Her large patterned scarf is the clear focus of the outfit and brings color and warmth to the black of her fringe boots and pants. Her neutral, gray sweater is the perfect palette for the scarf to make a statement and allows for the vibrant colors to show. When assembling a look similar to this one, always remember to pick your accessories wisely and make sure the colors complement each other nicely. So, if you are ever looking to spice up an outfit and add some color and volume, always turn to the scarves hanging in the back of your closet!
