I am writing this article sitting alfresco on Brighton’s seafront. The weather has been kind today, my cappuccino keeps me company whilst people watching and fashion spotting through RayBans. I tuck a wooly around my neck and I am ready to jot down a few words on the must-have accessories for this season – scarves. What a delightful little pleasure on a sunny morning like this.
There is a huge selection of outerwear to choose from the UK retailers, labels and designers. Classic and stylish trench coats are no doubt the key essential for the city slickers; the oversized and super comfy jackets will do the job wrapping you up. However, a warming ‘comforter’ will surely become a girl’s best friend. So what can we choose from?
Effortless yet versatile; a simple accessory that instantly updates your basic layers. Plaid wool or cashmere, pair it with a tailored crombie for a chill-proof look. Check out the M&S Collection.
A perfect match for a pea coat or boyish-cut overcoat. Clash it with check tweeds for added eclectic effect. The range in ZARA and River Island will allow your eyes to feast.
A soft stole around your neck adds a luxe finish to your outfit. This plush accompaniment beautifully drapes over shoulders for office days and evenings out alike. Check out Charlotte Simone @ matchesfashion.com
A hat and scarf in one? Say no more. Debenhams holds a lavish selection.
WRAPS, CAPES & PONCHOS
Make a sumptuous statement in graphic patterns paired with skinny trousers and classic courts. Fur-trimmed styles create an even more refined effect. A perfect addition to your brisk-weather wardrobe. Check out maje.com and HOBBS for some lovely pieces.
SHAWLS, PASHMINAS & BLANKET SCARVES
Stylishly layer your autumn look. Team up with slim-line trousers and ankle boots for a textural twist. Top off a chic turtleneck and knee-high boots for a compelling modern appeal. For an online shopping fest go to net-a-porter.com.
Invest in two or three different styles to mix up different looks. Keep the chill at bay and cocoon yourself in a plush wrap for that ultimate cold weather comfort. Discerning shopper? Play with textures and patterns, or opt for classic neutral colours for that polished, elegant finish. Indeed, a cosy scarf can pleasantly transform your outfit, whatever the weather.
