Everything about the next few months is brave: Braving the elements, braving to wear heels in the snow and ice, braving to splash color in among all the black and grey. What can fit better than the latest, brightest scarves? Whether you choose a sturdy outwear piece, or a lighter go-anywhere weight, one thing’s for sure: The longer the better. When wrapped loosely around the neck, a long scarf can flatter any figure. Choosing a color that is complimentary to an ensemble, rather than matchy-matchy adds texture and dimension. What’s more, the movement of a scarf (especially if it has fringes) adds lightness and energy to heavy, thick winter clothes. (L-R): Burberry plum, purple & white plaid wool $150. J.
