via tumblrJanuary's back-to-back blizzards and the two snowstorms on tap for this week have meant one thing: my scarves have been the hardest working accessories in my wardrobe.
the extreme weather has been helpful in one sense – it clarifies priorities. this is no time for whims; in the dead of winter, it's about results-oriented dressing. a well made scarf in a natural fiber or knit is a year-round foundation in my wardrobe.
here are my essentials:
1. polar vortex situations /-25 °F – 10 °F
*the oversize knit cashmere: when you're cursing the windchill on your way to work, this is the ultimate cozy cashmere shawl. currently the best time to snap it up too (extra 40% off via WINTER25).
2. typical late fall & winter /0 °F – 45 °F
*the classic wool: i bought mine over a year ago, and up until the PV last month it was my go-to coldest weather scarf. still does a fantastic job of keeping windchill out due to its oversized wrappability (the wool doesn't collapse easily, which is great). also when i'm in a bad mood in the AM i just think that i am sort of channeling Clémence Poésy, and that cheers me up.
3. spring + fall + travel + your freezing air-conditioned summer office /50 °F – 70 °F
*the gauzy cashmere-silk wrap (similar here): imminently drapeable, but still oversize enough to be chic and versatile for everyday, work, travel, and a night out.
what do you think? do you have any favorite seasonal scarves/shawls?
