Winter's Best Scarves All Wrapped Up

We've shown you loads of pretty scarves recently - from Lisa Angel to Karen Mabon. But you know, it's getting colder and I need my scarves to be that bit more winter-proof. Patterned, plain or pom-pom-ed, the high street is offering us a smorgasbord (a scarfasbord?) of choice this year. Here are my favourites, in every kind of style.

STRIPES


Well, it is Doctor Who week on the site so I felt I had to kick off with a long stripy number. This stripe knitted scarf comes in much prettier colours than Tom Baker's scarf but should still last you through several years of travel. It's only £18 from Warehouse. Those with a weakness for Time Lords may also like Monki's Stella scarf.

FAIR ISLE


Like the jumpers, Fair Isle patterned scarves seem to be very popular at the moment. As are snoods. This Louche Anika Fair Isle snood combines the two in a lovely spectrum of colour that's sure to brighten up the greyest day. It's £20 from JoyTopshop are offering more Fair Isle/snood action, Anthropologie are offering a typically swanky interpretation of the trend, while this Boden design wins on cheeriness.

ANIMALS


Yeah, you've got the animal jumper, now you can get the scarf to match. None, however, in my opinion quite match the cuteness factor of this Polar bear scarf, £30 from People Tree. My poor cold neck definitely deserves a bear hug. I'm also rather fond of this stag scarf, and the other animal-inspired designs of Alice Hannah.

TARTAN


You can - and I'm strongly encouraging you to - have a scarf to match your lovely new kilt. There's masses in at Urban Outfitters. Can't decide what tartan to go for or torn, Romeo and Juliet-style, between two clans? Zara have solved the problem with this two-sided scarf: red and black on one side, black and white on the other. Hours of fun to be had for £19.99.

COLOUR POP


Cold and gloom getting you down? You need some cheery colour to brighten up your day. I love the bright pink on the otherwise sedate stripy stitch scarf from Boden, yours for £23.20. Add some punchy red with this number from J. Crew or zing, thanks to this Urban Outfitters treat.

POM POMS




Pom poms are a wooly winner for winter. And why only use one when you could use about 30? That's what this Warehouse multi pom pom scarf is saying to me anyway. It's £26 (that's an excellent pom pom rate for your pound). There's more pom pom cheer available from Urban Outfitters and Oliver Bonas. Or you could use Kat's tutorial and get crafty and make your own.

PLAIN AND SIMPLE


There's a time when keeping it plain is the very best. Especially if you're already sporting an elaborate cape, or a turban or something. So I'll finish on this beautifully simple wool-blend scarf from &Other Stories. It's £29. For the antithesis of fancy, it also comes in grey. It's a wrap.

  1. Oooh, I thought that Boden scarf would be super expensive (because y'know... Boden), but it's not! It's lovely.

    1. I know, isn't it? I've liked an awful lot from Boden recently. Not sure if it's me getting older, or Boden doing nice things. Probably it's a bit of both.

  2. I have the Zara scarf; it's genuinely enormous, people regularly ask if it's a repurposed picnic blanket.

    It may well be the love of my life.

    1. I have a scarf from Zara! It was a Christmas present (after I said "I need a new scarf. Zara do nice scarves." It's so snuggly. They do a really great line in scarves.

    1. Oh no! I hadn't bought it yet either. It's still in stock in the other colours but I agree they're not quite as lovely as this combo.
