Ought Not To, Ought To: Winter accessories
Spring may be approaching, but that doesn't mean it's time to say goodbye to scarves, hats, knit hair wraps, and gloves. It's still a bit chilly here in New York. And that may be the understatement of the century.
If I had to choose one winter accessory that I couldn't live without, it would have to be a scarf. When its friggin zero degrees outside with winds of up to 857 MPH, you best believe I need a place to bury my face. Enter the scarf. Scarves are life-savers. And face-savers.
Above are different options for plaid scarves. When paired with a solid colored jacket or coat, a plaid scarf is a great accompaniment. You'll transform your outfit from boring to animated, instantly. Another option, and one that's slightly more daring: try pairing a patterned coat with a patterned scarf. Pattern mixing is super fly. And that's the first time I've used that word (fly) as an adjective.
Below are various winter headbands. This collage was made because of a reader's request. And because chunky headbands are magical. Combine a hat and an ear muff, and you get this beautiful mutation.
