Wrap it, Stuff it, Wear it


As most of you have probably started to notice (except maybe you southerners), the air is getting colder and colder. The t-shirt evolved into the sweater which then, in turn, brought along his friend, the coat. I'm sure everyone wishes that they could purchase a new coat each season (or several coats for that matter) but, if you are like me, you can't afford to indulge that urge. "How can I spice up my fall/winter outerwear get-up without going broke?" you may ask. Well, my loyal reader, let me tell you: with a well-picked scarf.

As noted by comedic writer, Christian Lander, the scarf is an important part of any wardrobe. There are many options and fabrics and styles for this neck accoutrement. Generally, the scarf is an easy way to add a splash of color to your wardrobe, and you shouldn't be afraid to go with bright reds or bold rugby stripes. Even if you are a seasoned adult, you can return to your prime by picking one up with embroidered collegiate styling. This trend is a favorite of mine and makes a perfect gift for that natty dresser on your Christmas list.
In order to get a fantastic scarf, you don't need to spend a lot of money. I have several fashionable styles that were purchased for under $20. Recently, my wife purchased me a collegiate cable-knit angora and wool scarf from Forever 21 that is just fabulous. Angora, as you may know, is a soft hair that comes from the Angora rabbit or goat. One thing to keep in mind when purchasing angora is that it has a tendency to shed. Because of this, I would recommend staying away from 100% angora unless it is from a well-respected brand (higher quality does reduce shedding). Another fabric that you want to watch (as far as quality goes) is wool. Since scarves are worn around the neck and against soft skin, you don't want this wrap to consist of coarse or itchy fibers. Giving your loved one a wool scarf is like giving them a carnation to say “I love you”. If you really want to mean it, you should splurge for the red rose of the scarf world: cashmere. Cashmere is just like the perfect girlfriend: beautiful, elegant, makes all your friends envious, looks great dressed up or down, and not too clingy.

Final verdict: try some new styles this season and look for new ways to tie it around your neck.
