With at least a couple more months of cold weather on the horizon, I’m certainly not ready to give up on winter woollies just yet.
I’m fully embracing the oversized trend this season so I’m sharing my own favourites in the shape of big, cosy scarves, as well as a few others I’ve got my eye on.
During the latter part of 2018 I decided to try cutting down on excessive, or unnecessary purchases and adopting a “one in, one out” policy which I must admit, seems to work for me (most of the time). This most definitely applies to clothing purchases as more often than not we can manage with what we already have, or, rekindle a love for those long-forgotten pieces and find new ways of styling them.
I’m a bit particular about my scarves these days, oversized or blanket style is more my thing.
Scarves are one item which I always seem to accumulate lots of! I went through my collection and found several which aren’t my style anymore or are just too well-worn to go another season. I donated them to charity and then treated myself to a few new scarves and felt a little less guilty about my purchases.
If you’ve missed the leopard print trend that’s sweeping the nation then come out from under your stone!
Once I’d decided on said print, but in scarf form, I searched online and eventually found this oversized scarf in River Island on my local high street. I couldn’t resist its contrasting coloured edging and a reasonable price tag of £18 In terms of the knit, it’s more of an open style but feels good quality for the price. It’s brushed for a little extra warmth and is a really good size for wrapping up in.
Another River Island pick, but a little more formal-looking this time. I love the colour block design of this blanket scarf, plus, it’s a smoother knit for a luxe feel. It comes in several colours and is currently on sale at £12 (original price £22) so it’s really worth snapping one up for next season!
If it’s not quite coat weather but there’s a chill in the air, throw on an oversized jumper, wrap a scarf around your shoulders and you’re good to go.
One colour combination which really appeals to me is camel and grey…
It almost doesn’t work, but at the same time looks so stylish, I think. Everyone should own a camel coat as in terms of coordinating your outfit it’s so versatile and can be worn with various colours. My grey Lambswool oversized scarf is from ASOS and is a really warm, soft knit. Currently on sale at £16 (original price £32).

I’ve got my eye on the Ugg scarf (above), but I may hold off until A/W19! What’s your current scarf situation? Do you prefer oversized? I’d love to know what you think of my picks.
