I love bright, borderline loud scarves this time of year, when it’s too easy to walk out of the house in the drabbest colors from head to toe. The right scarf can light up your whole face even when makeup fails you, and I’m also always looking for items to put a little spring in my step when it gets to be grey and miserable out and I start feeling deathly pallid no matter how much bronzer I apply. This one from Missoni is all fierce oranges and yellows, with a little black thrown in for good measure.
There is a very subtle herringbone pattern here that I quite like, and the combination of reds is so good. It’s Eileen Fisher, who occasionally surprises one.
This is possibly a bit much, but just the right thing for certain circumstances.
Red leopard is never a bad idea, and the price is quite nice.
I like the chunkiness of this option,and the stripes are cute in a slightly preppy Ali McGraw kind of a way.
This is White + Warren’s excellent travel scarf, which is absolute genius on a frigid airplane, and again, I’m liking the stripes.
I always get really happy when I see red, white, and blue together: it’s so graphic and appealing.
Houndstooth is so chic and under-used, and the stripes of color are fun.
Pendelton’s National Parks series strikes again. I’m going to venture to say that this is actually a really sophisticated color combination, and that it looks fancier than it is—sort of like Gucci right now, if that’s your thing.
Why not something pink and floofy?
This has a small diamond-plaid print, something I’d never seen before but quite like—it makes the wee-est of statements.
