The good news: A scarf is a versatile piece of clothing that can keep you from freezing your
ass neck off in fall, winter, and spring. The bad news: The wrong scarf can make you look like an effeminate fancy boy.
The trick is to know what to wear and how to wear it. So whether you’re bundling up with a parka and winter hat, or just need something to keep you warm while wearing jeans and a blazer, these simple guidelines will ensure you look okay doing it.
PRICE AND FABRIC
You can buy a scarf made of anything from fleece to polyester to cashmere. None is right or wrong; they just have to match the rest of what you’re wearing (but you will ante up for cashmere or hand-knit scarves). The main thing: Make sure the thing actually keeps you warm.
