Best Bet: Luxirare Leather Scarf

While wool and cashmere scarves are classics, a leather kerchief is an unexpected way to finish off an outfit. Last fall at Céline, Phoebe Philo used oversize bicolored versions in rich hues like blue and camel to add textural contrast to her sweaters and coats. Luxirare’s sleek black take has a soft knit side that feels ultra cozy against the throat — all the better for practical minimalist dressing.
