25 Lightweight Scarves for Cool Fall Mornings


For those crisp mornings when just wearing a thin jacket won’t do, a scarf in ultra-thin cashmere, wool, or other mid-weight knit is the perfect finishing touch to keep you warm without overheating. Looped casually around the neck, it instantly adds a punch of color and pattern to any outfit. Right now, for those looking to add a street-style-worthy piece to their wardrobe, Christopher Kane and Whistles both feature camouflage prints. Should those be too over-the-top, minimal versions like A Détacher’s fringed white shawl or H&M’s simple pale-gray wrap are chic enough to be worn year after year. Classicists can indulge their plaid dreams with Steven Alan or Madewell. Click ahead to see all 25 scarves, and if you really want to emulate the runways, here’s an easy styling trick: keep hair tucked in after wrapping it around yourself.
