As the weather gets colder, we’re looking for ways to stay handsome while staying warm. And it’s no easy task as those of you who live in colder climates know. We love layering and overcoats and big boots, but piling on the winter accessories can be a little daunting. You need to keep your head, hands and neck warm when the temperature really drops without looking like Randy from A Christmas Story. Luckily, one of our favorite street style trends from the fall 2013 men’s shows is big, bold, toasty-warm scarves. And we’re not necessarily talking bold as in loud but rather bold as in BIG.
From bright colors to strong, graphic patterns to scarves so big they could double as blankets, this winter accessory is definitely a must in terms of both style and comfort. A great scarf can tie an outfit together just as well as it can keep you warm. Check out some of our favorite bold winter scarves below and embrace the plunging temperatures.
Club Monaco Reps Stripe Scarf
Nothing brightens a cold winter day like a bright, graphic scarf. We love this silk version’s bold, vibrant stripes and light fringe detail. $69.50, Club Monaco
BMC The Kikyo Hooded Infinity Scarf
We love that this hooded scarf kills two cold weather birds with one stone. Wear the hood up if you want to keep your ears warm or down if you’re simply not feeling it. $34.30, Karmaloop
Scotch & Soda Blanket Fringe Scarf
We love a Southwestern print in muted colors, and this Scotch & Soda scarf makes a statement without going over-the-top. The cotton/wool blend will keep you comfortable and warm. $89, Revolve Clothing
Urban Outfitters Double Cable-Knit Eternity Scarf
Chunky and warm, this eternity scarf is available in four essentials colors. But we love the deep burgundy with a black, navy or camel coat. $34, Urban Outfitters
Pendelton Tartan Throw
That’s right, for those extra cold days, we have no shame grabbing our favorite blanket off the couch or bed and wrapping it around our necks for warmth. This Pendelton throw isn’t too outrageously big either. $149.50, Lands’ End
