pretty things -- snoods.

ATTAINABLE: Ark & Co. Pleated Tube Mini Dress
www.alainnbella.com; retail $56
How could I help but let this pretty little strapless dress steal my heart? I think it's the color that really does it for me: it's such a pretty steely purple shade. Between that and the pleating detail at the neckline, I was a goner. I love that this will work now and in the winter with a great pair of textured tights, but it would be adorable with bare legs and wedges come spring.

Though I love the way that they look, I simply don't wear scarves as often as I'd like. It's just not something that I think about on a regular basis. However, come winter, I can nearly always be found with a warm scarf tied around my neck. While I love the different ways that other girls tie their scarves, I can never quite seem to figure it out -- so snoods and eternity scarves make my life that much easier. This year, I'm loving big, chunky knits and pretty patterns to pair with the most basic of my wool coats.

Vince Cashmere Infinity Scarf

Vince always makes the absolute softest knitwear pieces. This scarf is, I'm sure, no exception. How can you possibly go wrong with cashmere, after all? So pretty and so very, very warm. The avocado green shade is fantastic and so versatile, though I love the other color as well.

Urban Outfitters Tartan Eternity Scarf
www.urbanoutfitters.com; retail $24
I adore plaid, and this sweet little scarf is such a great representation of it. I really love the colors; they're perfect together and the green adds just a touch of festive flair. The single side of exposed fringe is such a great detail, adding a little extra texture and visual interest. How great would it be with a classic trench?

Madewell First Frost Circle Scarf in Cottage Green (also in Lantern Red, Vintage Lace, and Hthr Smoke)
www.madewell.com; retail $58.00
This is just what I've been craving: a warm, chunky knit that comes in a variety of colors, each of which is fantastically versatile without being dull at all. The simple cowl shape is beautiful and I love that I could just slip it over my head and go.

AEO Nordic Loop Scarf

As the weather grows colder and I begin to crave Starbucks drinks in red cups, my obsession with Fair Isle prints is getting a little out of control. I've fallen head-over-heels for this pretty black-and-white scarf from American Eagle. It's a great length and, naturally, the print is my favorite part.

How are YOU wearing scarves this winter?

I pretty much live in snoods once it gets cold out. One of my favorites is from Gap last year- so comfy!

Cate said...

I have an off-white snood from JCrew, and it is the best! I love that I can pull it up over my ears too, for those super cold days:)

Im not much of a heavy scarf person, I love round neck coats with maybe a silk scarf...but I have to admit love the warm feeling of a good wool scarf around the neck...Let the winter begin!

Grace said...

Jennifer Fabulous said...

I love these scarves, they look comfy, but I simply cannot pull them off. My head is too small and adding a puffy scarf around it, just make it look even smaller. It's really sad.

I really want to get onboard with these infinity scarves, but that would mean cold weather. And Josie? I am useless at cold weather. Blame it on 20+ years in Canada.

Shannon said...

Love those snoods. This winter I am working on my collection of scarfs and snoods. The perfect cold weather accessory.

I love a yummy cashmere scarf but changed it up this year with a chiffon Alexander McQueen and a silk Missoni--they aren't the most practical things in the world, but very fun...I think next year I'm going back to cashmere!

I am having a nordic print moment, too! And I am quickly learning that scarves are essential to midwest fall/winter, so all your choices seem very appealing :)
