You basically have to wear a scarf in the winter (unless you like feeling freezing or are fortunate enough to live in Southern California), so you might as well put a little thought into it, right? Just as not every style of shoe works with every outfit, not every type of scarf works with every outfit. For example, if you're wearing track pants and going for an athleisure-themed look, you're probably going to want to avoid a fancy silk scarf.
To ensure that you're never second guessing yourself when choosing what scarf to wear this winter, we found five common types of scarf outfits that fashion girls wear on repeat, which should give you a clear idea of the five types of scarves you should own and what to pair with them. If we do say so ourselves, this might even make you wish for cold, scarf-worthy days. Read on to find out how to choose the best type of scarf for every outfit.
