Forget diamonds — scarves are a girl’s best friend! Scarves will never run a size too small. They simply add style and warmth to any winter wardrobe that welcomes their fun prints, vivacious colors and ornate details. Here are a few scarves for any kind of lady on your holiday list.
Glitz and glam
Hello, Hollywood! For the lady with an inner movie star, there are a massive amount of glitzy options this season. From studded pieces to sparkly statements, these adorable, high-end looking scarves add an instant pop of style to an otherwise bland wardrobe. Simply drape them around your neck for a bohemian, effortless look or knot them up for a sophisticated office style.
Crafty and quirky
Have a thrift store shopper on your list? You might not be able to pick out the perfect vintage find at a consignment shop, but plenty of retailers are selling vintage-inspired pieces that pair perfectly with the real thing. Think retro ’70s prints, bird prints and tiny, unique details that make it stand out from the rest.
What’s your giftee’s best color? Even if the rest of an outfit is neutral, a pop of face-flattering color can add a fun element to an otherwise bland outfit. Know your brunette friend looks great in red or blue? A solid statement piece in each color can be paired with different outfits and looks. Think the fiery redhead on your list looks great with white? A solid white scarf hints at winter elements while adding a splash of clean-looking innocence. It’s also a great way to incorporate the colors of winter, 2012 — like orchid, dark teal, dusty blues and more.
Sheer and breezy
You might have left your breezy, flowy wardrobe behind with summer, but there’s no reason to not allude to it during the winter. Rekindling those summer days with light fabrics around your neck — tucked under a soft, cozy, double-breasted coat — is a great way to reassure yourself that summer is more than a season — it’s a state of mind!
Cashmere scarves never go out of style, and for good reason. The fluffy, soft texture is warm, classic colors never go out of style and it’s a staple your giftee will keep in the closet forever. Pair it with a timeless pair of leather gloves and a sleek suede handbag, and you have an ensemble that withstands the test of time.
