A scarf can be much more than an extra layer of warmth, considering the impressive roster of designs that exist in the outerwear world. While brightly colored cocoon coats, metallic puffers, and floor-sweeping trenches no doubt make a statement worn over a winter outfit, a scarf can achieve the same eye-catching effect. So rather than trading in your muted jacket for a full-length number that’s out of your budget, try adding a neckerchief or muffler instead, and see how much dimension it brings to your look.

There are plenty of ways to incorporate a scarf as a subtle accent. You can wrap it once over your shoulders and tuck the loose ends away into your collar. If you wear a hijab, you can tie a thin, lightweight bandana underneath and pull most of its length out front, or weave one under the lapels of your blazer to provide a hint of contrast.

Alternatively, you can be big and bold with your intention. Search for vibrant crocheted designs, saturated rainbow plaid prints, or logo-fied shawls to turn heads. In this case, you need little more than some denim or a pair of leggings to sport as the foundation of your ensemble. Just make your scarf your focal point by twisting it at the neck and draping one end toward the front and the other off the back.

Ahead, we’ve gathered 14 unique ideas for wearing your scarf this season, along with some favorite selects — from fuzzy stoles to oversize, tassel-finished knits.
