There are two important investments for winter dressing: outerwear and accessories. Not only are these rewearable and the only outfit pieces visible in cold temperatures but they are essential to keeping you warm. Fashion people always have an accessory or two that is hot for the winter season—whether it be fuzzy bucket hats, puffer snow boots, or in this case, oversize blanket scarves. Think Lenny Kravitz's viral giant scarf from 2012.

My feed has been inundated by my favorite fashion people with thick knit scarves chicly tossed over their shoulders. In most cases I've seen, the bigger the better, and brands are living up to the challenge. Luckily, this piece doesn't have to break your budget, although it is definitely worth a buy. And regardless of the price, it is guaranteed to make you look expensive, ask effortless icon Katie Holmes. 

Shop below for the coolest, yet the warmest, chunky scarves on the market. Anyways, who doesn't want to wear a glorified blanket that is also fashion-forward, sophisticated, and undoubtedly cozy?
