I will forever proclaim that fall is the best time to get dressed. Fight me on it! After a summer of dressing in rags, fall reignites a creativity but also a seriousness in putting clothes together. Basically, the daydream is over, and now it’s time to get back to business and get into all of the autumnal colors that look incredible with sun-kissed skin. The outfit combinations are limitless (bare legs in skirt with a sweater, jeans and a light trench, just a sweater dress with a tall boot, etc., etc.) and basically every type of footwear is game. However, a fall outfit without a scarf is like—did you even dress for fall at all?!

Below, I try on several cool-weather scarf staples and super easy outfit ideas for each. And the real kicker is this: They will all look just as good with jeans as they do with leggings, sweats and flats, ’cause let’s not kid ourselves, we’re still in a pandemic, people. Let’s keep it simple. Now, onward to the scarves you need now!
