Wrap it up!

We love scarves. Thin scarves, bulky scarves, knitted scarves, plaid scarves, sheer scarves, cashmere scarves, pashmina scarves, infinity scarves... You name it, we own them. A lot of them. Oodles and oodles of scarves. And no, we don't have enough and never will, thank you very much.

Scarves are great as accessories because they add that extra something to your outfit, whether that something is a pop of color, a needed texture or pattern, or just some fashionable bulk (is that a thing??).

But let's face it, when you're from the Northeast like we are, these little strips of fabric are also extremely functional in the never-ending effort to just STAY WARM. In fact they are essential.

As much as we love all of our scarves for their own unique purpose, we all have those one or two basic-go-with-anything-staple-scarves we leave front and center on the coat rack. Old faithfuls, if you will.

Enter the beauty of the neutral scarf. You know, the one you wear to casually meet a friend, or to run an errand, or go for a Starbucks run. You know the one...your thinking of it right now...you might even go put it on. Afterall, it IS cold in here. Isn't it?

The beauty of scarves is that the options are never ending, and the perfect neutral scarf doesn't have to be boring! Here are our picks for neutral-not-boring, everyday scarves that reflect our own personal styles perfectly... and therefore fit into our wardrobes seamlessly.
