You’re cold. We’re cold. In fact, it seems like everyone is cold these days (even Californians, although we’re pretty sure that has something to do with this phenomenon). But until the day when we can all stay snug under our duvet and hibernate for a few months of every year, venturing out into the chilly winds and blustery snow is pretty much inevitable. So to make your commute — or trip to the corner store for weekend provisions — a little more bearable, we’ve found some hats, mitts, scarves, gloves, and other winter necessities that are not only cozy, but stylish too!
We’ve always dreamed of owning a classic Carré scarf from Hermès, and news that the brand is collaborating with Comme des Garçons designer Rei Kawakubo only makes us more determined.
Whether you call it a snood or infinity scarf, there’s no questioning that this cold weather must-have is an easy way to add some warmth and pizzaz to your wardrobe this season. Loop it around your neck for a snuggly look, or over your head to shield away any snow flurries or rain drops. From sequins to color to (faux) fur, we’ve got you covered.
For that in-between weather when we can’t decide if we should wear a sweater or jacket, scarves are the perfect accessory for adding a bit of warmth during a chilly morning or overly air-conditioned train ride. Plus: it adds a fun pop of print or color to an outfit. We’ve picked our top 10 favorites for the season, so all you need to do is shop ‘em.
It’s the middle of July, so like any responsible fashion publication, we here at Styleite have been thinking a lot about fall accessories. And these very magnetic scarves are, well, they’re something else.
We’re all about multi-tasking, which is why we think the scarf might just be the world’s most versatile accessory. You can wear it as a hair-tie, a belt, a shawl, or even a top and either way you’ll look chic and effortless. But the best scarves add some printed panache with their drapey flair, which is why we rounded up our five favorites to share with you — and offered up our thoughts on how to style them.
It has been brought to our attention that for the low, low price of $200, you can own something called a sleeve scarf. A sleeve scarf is a thick, knitted scarf with a full sleeve attached, making it the perfect garment for those days when your neck and one (but not both) of your arms are cold.
On Wednesday, when the rest of us were busy buying ingredients to make dinner for families and friends, First Lady Michelle Obama and her family were busy serving the needs of others. They gave out bags of Thanksgiving essentials to families in need at Martha’s Table, a Washington-area organization dedicated to helping solve poverty. For the occasion, the first lady wore a cream sweater and a purple scarf trimmed in pearls. It’s the kind of accessory that’s easy to throw on and can turn a so-so outfit — like a simple cream sweater and slacks — into something spectacular looking in no time flat
As the summer season winds down and we shift our gears to fall—I can hardly wait either!—I know many of you will be inclined to store away your colorful accessories and shift toward a darker palette. However, I want everyone to stop and rethink this protocol during the upcoming season…why not view your vibrant add-ons as a year-round regime? Matthew Williamson shows us how it’s done with the multi-hued Circle Lace Strip Scarf from his Autumn Collection.
