Winter will be here again before you know it (at least on the East Coast), which means it’ll be 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. Now, during these unprecedented times, they can even be used as a face mask.
With such a variety to choose from, including chunky knit, plush ribbed and soft flannel, what are the best ones?
To help narrow it down I found 20 cute and cozy scarves for women.
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 a diy face mask.
You will often find me doing this with my scarves now more than ever, even if I am vacationing at home.
How do you wear a scarf as a face mask?
Learn how you can quickly turn a scarf into a homemade face mask in 3 easy steps:
- Fold the scarf into a triangle shape (a cotton one works best, as it won’t slip).
- Place the folded part over your nose and mouth.
- Tie both of the ends into a knot behind your head. (Make sure it’s tight enough to hold the mask up, but comfortable enough to breath)
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. It will drape nicely 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’s one of my best kept travel secrets.
Some of these even come in a matching hat scarf and gloves set.
The best part is that 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.
