5 Picture-Perfect Scarves (and How to Wear Them)
Proof that there’s one for any occasion
In Partnership with Burberry.
Every fall, there’s always a host of gorgeous new things we want to add to our wardrobes (looks like we need knee-high leather boots). But what we’ve really learned is that time after time, we keep coming back to one thing each September: A soft, stylish cashmere scarf.
It’s the chicest way to dress up (and down) any outfit, for any occasion.
That’s why we’re kind of in love with the latest from Burberry. The British brand is expanding its offerings with their “Scarf Bar”: An array of sophisticated colors, prints and patterns, plus a monogramming service (so you can stake your claim).
Check out our take on five of the stunners, then shop in select stores or online.
Classic cashmere keeps you cozy in your office’s unpredictable AC-slash-heat situation. This camel-hued wrap softens a work look; Over a leopard-print top, it’s sophisticated enough for the boardroom with an on-trend touch (hello, fringe).
Classic Cashmere Scarf ($475)
Falling leaves and pumpkin-flavored anything: We adore fall. To take the basic autumn outfit one step further, a berry-colored scarf is the only requirement. Tuck in the ends of this playful heart-print number; The effect is more structured, which works wonders for the sleek silhouette of the sweater/skirt/bootie combo. Caffeine, anyone?
The Run Around
When you’re out running errands and keeping appointments, you can’t go wrong with a classic trench and scarf (because you can go wrong with sweats and sneaks). Tuck an extra-long checked scarf under your jacket’s lapel, let it hang loose (no knots necessary) and finish it off with the trench’s belt.
Breeze About Town
Transition a summer wardrobe into fall in layers. Take this white frock, for example: Luxurious, structured accessories—like a felt topper and statement-making boots, both in black—mean you can wear this sweet number well into cooler temps. To keep things extra cozy, drape this jewel-toned scarf over your shoulders.

Fit to be Tied
Drinks with friends in 20 minutes? Slip into a white tee and coated skinnies, then add a short scarf. Here, the classic check pattern feels fresh (and edgy) with a military-inspired palette, and with a new styling trick: Wrap it snugly over your hair and allow a few pieces to fall out.
