Now that cooler weather is upon us, men are forced to bundle up.
However, you don’t have to sacrifice style for the sake of warmth.
With the right accessories, you can add a touch of flair to that trench coat, parka, or bomber jacket.
One way to stay warm and comfortable yet still maintain a stylish look is with a scarf.
Scarves can accompany any jacket, or be wrapped over your favorite shirt, or suit.
Many menswear designers such as Hugo Boss, Tommy Hilfiger, Diesel, Calvin Klein, and J. Crew carry lines of scarves with patterns that range from plain and conservative, to unique styles that will definitely set you apart from the crowd.
Look for scarves made of warm and soft materials.
Cashmere and wool are the two most popular fabrics for the cold months, but men’s scarves can be made from silk, rayon, and nylon.
If you want a more rugged look, choose thicker scarves with neutral colors such as brown, black, or gray.
However, if you’re seeking a more stylish, streamlined look, select scarves that are thinner and more colorful.
After you have chosen the perfect scarf, deciding how to tie it is the next big decision you’ll have to make.
The way that you tie your scarf makes a statement. Are you going for a laid-back look or are you trying to be authoritative?
Perhaps you simply want to keep the cold wind off your neck and keep your chest warm.
