fashion TREND ALERT: Oversized Scarves

When temperatures are below freezing and the wind is blowing snow all around us like a winter wonderland, staying warm and stylish can be quite a feat. Therefore when I saw an assortment of oversized scarves down the runway at fashion week, I was ecstatic. Not only are they practical but they bring an added dimension to winter looks, magnifying the cozy couture vibe this season.

This trend is perfect for the freezing Midwestern weather. With wind chills often below zero, what is a better way to stay warm than with an oversized scarf?! This year we saw oversized scarves featured on the runway from faux fur which Emporio Armani displayed, to classic knits similar to Akris’s scarves. Make a statement like Maxa Mara with an animal print oversized scarf, highlighting two hot trends at once! Whether you show off this look with a classic pair of jeans and a jacket or you pair it with a romantic dress for a winter party, you will not only stay warm, but will look and feel fantastic all season long.
