The finishing touch to any sophisticated winter outfit, a good scarf is an essential. Here are our top three.
Scarves. A necessary winter item, it's easy to neglect them and plump for the cheapest option. Or, worse still, to have just one scarf and hope that'll suit any and every situation. Like socks and shoes, scarves are best when you have an array for different occasions, as opposed to one that gets trotted out regardless of suitability.
The casual scarf
One thing that's easy to forget when choosing a scarf is that that it will be on your neck all day (shocking, we know). So while thick and rough is nice, a softer wool is preferable - and few are softer than cashmere. Cottonopolis, Oi Polloi's own brand have made a cashmere scarf in black watch check, perfect for the terraces or a night out.
Oi Polloi, £44
The work scarf
We've always thought you should pay more for the things you're planning on using everyday - after all, they should be built to last. Which is why we're recommending this Johnstons scarf for your day to day duties. Grey goes with every colour under the sun and the thick knitted cashmere ensures your neck will be cosy as well as look good. Pair with your new camel coat for maximum effect.
Johnstons - £125
The budget scarf
Don't have the cash to splash but still want something that'll do the job? Then look no further than Uniqlo's Heattech scarves. They're affordable, look good and will keep your neck warm. What else could you want from a scarf?
