Out of all the winter accessories, it’s the one that makes it easiest to show off your personality while staying warm and cozy. Below, we’ve rounded up 16 good options for every personal style. From a colorful dip-dyed Loewe scarf to an affordable faux fur from Mango, here are the best scarves in stores now. Scroll down to shop all of our favorites.

An Essential Black Scarf

Amazon Essentials Women's Blanket Scarf

Black never goes out of style, but if you love a print, this one comes in leopard and red plaid. And it’s big enough to double as a small blanket, so you can snuggle under it on plane rides.

For the Person Who Can’t Sit Still

Madewell Striped Pom-Pom Scarf

Pom-poms aren’t just playful accoutrements. They’re also a good distraction for someone who is constantly fidgeting.

If You Love Your Puffer

Mango Printed Quilted Scarf

Puffer coats are a no-brainer because they look cute while keeping your body warm. Why not apply the same logic to your neck?

A Creamy Cashmere Scarf

Everlane Cashmere Scarf

Wear this on top of an all-beige outfit, like foam on top of a cappuccino. You’ll look so expensive.

If You Drink Green Juice Daily

ASOS Supersoft Long Woven Scarf with Tassels

If you haven’t heard, we’re all dressing like celery juice this winter.

If You Dabble in Being a Hypebeast

Y-3 x Adidas Intarsia Scarf

It’s okay to admit that hypebeasts look cool sometimes, even if you don’t want to spend your all time waiting in line in front of Supreme. This scarf gestures at the style without going overboard.

For the Millennial Pink Addict

Acne Studios Canada fringed mélange wool scarf

Consider this the classic black scarf’s contemporary equal. Millennial pink has been everywhere the past couple years and refuses to go away.

A Sentimental-Feeling Scarf

Nathalie Lete Luxembourg Embroidered Scarf

With this scarf around your neck, you’ll feel as warm and fuzzy as if your own grandma made it for you.

A Scarf With Pockets

Anthropologie Pocketed Boucle Scarf

So when people compliment it, you can say, “Thanks! It has pockets!”

If You Love Tie-Dye

Loewe Leather-Trimmed Fringed Striped Mohair-Blend Scarf

Dip-dye is kind of like tie-dye’s refined-but-still chill cousin. It feels extra refined if it’s from Loewe.

If You Love Tie-Dye (and Are on a Budget)

J.Crew Fuzzy Fringe Scarf with Watercolor Stripe

Same as the scarf above, except more affordable.

When You Need Another Layer

Madewell Placed Rainbow Plaid Cape Scarf

This scarf doubles as a cape, complete with arm holes.

If You Love Matisse

Virginia Johnson Nadine Wool Scarf

An abstract floral printed scarf goes perfectly with a day of gallery hopping.

If You Aren’t Afraid of Color

Ganni Striped Wool-Blend Scarf

Big bold stripes from the brand we once called “a Danish invasion in technicolor.

A Faux-Fur Scarf

Mango Faux Fur Scarf

The subtle fur effect here will keep you toasty without sacrificing taste (or an animal).

For the Logomania Lover

Balenciaga Intarsia Wool Scarf

Spare your friends the effort of having to ask “Is that Balenciaga?”
