20 Cute and Cozy Winter Scarves for Women

Sharing is caring!

Winter is pretty much here (at least on the East Coast), which means it’s time to break out all the warm clothes, coats and layers. Speaking of layers, winter scarves for women are cute, cozy and make the perfect cold weather accessory. Although I can’t promise they will make you like winter any more though. 

Scarves have always been one of my favorite accessories. I love that they can be used to not only keep you warm, but also to add a little color and fun to an outfit.

With so many different ones to choose from, including chunky knit, plush ribbed and soft flannel, what are the best scarves for winter?

Do scarves keep you warm?

When you wear scarves, shawls and wraps they keep in your body heat which helps warm you up.

If you pull a scarf up around your mouth you can form some insulation by creating a warm pocket of air.

You will often find me doing this with my scarves throughout the winter, especially when I travel. 

How do women wear winter scarves?

Women can wear winter scarves in a variety of ways, but it is really up to your personal preference.

My favorite are winter infinity scarves because you can easily loop them around your neck, no tying necessary. 

Another simple way to wear winter scarves for women is to fold the scarf in half then drape it around your neck.

Next, take the two loose ends and put them through the loop of the folded part of the scarf. You can make it as tight or loose as you’d like.

If you want to look casually fashionable then simply take a winter scarf and just let it hang around your neck, falling over your shoulders. 

I have a big fuzzy plaid scarf I bought years ago while traveling and it has become one of my best travel essentials, along with these Tieks or my favorite boots. I always wear it on the plane because it also doubles as a comfy makeshift pillow. 

Some of these even come in a matching hat scarf and gloves set.

The best part (at least for me who dislikes heading to the mall) is you can easily shop them all right online.  

What are the different types of scarves?

There are so many types of scarves, which is probably why I have a whole closet full of them.

For wintertime I recommend wearing all the warmest styles (cashmere, wool, knit) and save the lighter styles (silk, chiffon, cotton) for the spring and fall.
