40+ Outfits With Scarves For This Fall

By Kaia Saunders / September 18, 2017

Depending on where in the world you find yourself, the fall season can mean different things to you – either it’s a daily grind of wind and rain or, if you’re lucky, fall equals rust-colored leaves and the sweet scent of pumpkin spice on the breeze.

In our opinion, though, the best thing that fall brings is comfortable, cozy fashion. Wool, cashmere and fleece make up some of the most decadent scarves you can find – perfect to wrap around your neck in the most miserable of pre-winter weather.

Let’s check beautiful outfit collection with His Majesty – the Scarf.

Fall Classics With Plaid & Patterned Scarves

The past summer could best be described as a sartorial ode to plaid. We saw it everywhere – from off-the-shoulder tops to flowing maxi dresses.

The checkered gingham print was literally everywhere and this fall season; it doesn’t appear to be going anywhere. Thankfully, most of us probably have one or two plaid scarves already hanging in our closets from years gone by.

All it takes are a few choice styling tricks to make this traditional print fresh again.

The Brighter The Scarf, The Better

If this autumn could be summed up in one signature color, it would definitely be red.

Looking to the fall runways of Dolce and Gabbana, Givenchy and Oscar de la Renta, the one common thread uniting them all was look-at-me bright red.

But if this standout shade is not in your usual color palette, don’t fret. There is still a whole arsenal of other brights to choose from. From rosy pinks to mustard yellows, a scarf in a bright, luminous color can instantly add life and vitality to dreary fall days.

Burgundy Brilliance
