If we learned anything from “All Too Well” by Taylor Swift, it’s that scarves are so much more than just a simple accessory. (As the Grammy winner sings, “But you kept my old scarf from that very first week, because it reminds you of innocence and it smells like me.”) Symbolic significance aside, scarves can elevate your winter wear in seconds! And they also provide plenty of extra warmth to keep you cozy in cold weather.
Scarves are one of our go-to holiday gifts for anyone on our list! They’re effortlessly elegant and totally timeless. Below are 15 styles that belong in any winter wardrobe. Whether you’re shopping for yourself or picking out a present for someone else, these scarves will save the day. And we’re pretty sure T.Swift would approve.
This White and Warren Cashmere Travel Wrap
This luxuriously soft cashmere wrap from White and Warren is my favorite scarf of all time! Doubling as a blanket, this large scarf is warm yet lightweight to keep you cozy in cold weather. After losing my travel wrap a few years ago, I could not be happier to finally have a replacement for the winter.
This Cable Knit Scarf

This Fruit Knitted Scarf
Watermelon sugar high! This colorful scarf is such a fun gift for fruit lovers and eclectic fashionistas. Just read this rave review: “It’s the most perfect scarf I’ve ever owned.

It’s now my emotional support scarf.”
