Adding a little extra warmth and color to your outfit is easy to achieve with scarves and wraps. Wrapping these accessories around your neck or shoulders personalizes your outfit and keeps the chill away. Here’s what to look for when you’re shopping:

  • Scarves: If you’re looking for a scarf to wear with a particular outfit, be sure to consider the seasonality of the clothing you’ll be wearing it with. Wool scarves are perfect for winter wear, while silk scarves are better suited for chilly evenings in the spring, summer and fall.
  • Shawls and wrapsShawls and wraps (two names for the same thing) are larger than scarves, so you can wrap them around your shoulders, torso or waist. Like scarves, you’ll want to consider what the wrap is made of before you buy, so you’ll know if you’re choosing the right amount of warmth for the season when you want to wear it. Silk shawls will be more lightweight, making them perfect for beach cover-ups. Wool shawls and pashmina shawls are better suited for cool weather.

With scarves, shawls and wraps, the most important thing to consider is the size. When you’re online shopping, be sure to check the dimensions and ask yourself if that size will suit the way you want to wear your scarfshawl or wrap.
