LAYERING season is officially upon us—and if you’re anything like us, a cosy scarf is a favourite accessory to reach for when building a wintry outfit.
Chunky knits, wooly textures, luxurious silks, smooth cottons—there are just so many ways you can go when it comes to this hero accessory.
The best scarves for women will add texture and warmth to your ensemble, while setting off your outfit perfectly.
With varying lockdown rules in place across the country, many of us are spending our social time outdoors, which makes cosy scarves all the more essential. Oversized blanket scarves are the perfect addition to outerwear, and will keep you warm while you’re out and about, as well as looking really snug and stylish.
Or, if you’re looking for a scarf you can keep on and wear as part of your outfit, go for something lightweight and bold to add a striking splash of colour or print to your outfit.
Update your wardrobe for the season with our essential pick of the best scarves available to buy right now.

1. Best check scarf: RIIQIICHY’s Large Scarf With Fur Pompoms
- (AD) RIIQIICHY’s Large Scarf With Fur Pompoms, £17.99 from Amazon – buy here
There’s nothing like an oversized blanket scarf to wrap up in and feel gloriously cosy—especially when it features cute detailing like this scarf by RIIQIICY.
Trimmed with faux fur pompoms, the tartan check keeps it looking traditional and timeless, so you’re bound to get years of wear out of it.
Plus it contains cashmere, with many reviewers commenting on its super-soft feel. Yes please!
2. Best autumnal shade: RIIQIICHY’s Rainbow Scarf Pashmina
- (AD) RIIQIICHY Rainbow Scarf Pashmina, £14.99 from Amazon – buy here
Also in from RIIQIICHY, we’re loving the gradient hue of this beautiful scarf in autumnal shades of mustard and beige.
Large enough to wear as a wrap or shawl but just as suited to folding and wearing as a scarf, there’s a real elegance to this piece.
Team it with complementing neutral tones for a really chic look this AW20.
3. Best wool scarf: Arket’s Light Green Wool Scarf
- Wool Scarf 70 x 200 cm, £59 from Arket – buy here
Every wardrobe needs a simple and timeless wool scarf just like this one from Arket.

4. Best silk scarf: Aspinal of London ‘s Signature Silk Scarf Teal
- Aspinal Signature Silk Scarf Teal, £125 from Selfridges – buy here
Another must-have wardrobe staple, a silk scarf is the epitome of luxury and will always add some elegance to an ensemble, whether worn in your hair, on the strap of your handbag or of course, around your neck.
Crafted from pure silk and presented in a branded box, this beautiful version from Aspinal of London can be worn across seasons—and looks exceptionally effortless teamed with an oversized shirt and straight leg jeans.
5. Best for making a statement: Mango’s Zebra Printed Scarf
- Zebra printed scarf, £19.99 from Mango – buy here
Mango is our go-to for stylish, quality fashion that strikes the balance between trend-led pieces and timeless style—and it’s always a winner for accessories.
Case in point: this bold and statement-worthy scarf which nails this season’s penchant for zebra print.
With a soft finish and fringed edging, it’s perfect for anyone looking to add a pop of print to their wardrobe and can be worn over outerwear or simply as part of your outfit.
6. Best for coordinating: Free People’s Carry On Scarf Set
- Carry On Scarf Set, £58 from Free People – buy here
Free People is loved for its free-spirited, boho designs so we just knew they’d have some fun scarf designs to offer.
We’ve not been let down: this rainbow-striped plush scarf is sunshine on a stick, and even better, it comes with a matching slouchy bag for double the fun.
Both are artisan crafted, plus there’s four other colourways to choose from including a monochrome design and daisy print.
7. Best blanket scarf: Free People’s Prep Brushed Plaid Blanket Scarf
- Prep Brushed Plaid Blanket Scarf, £40 from Free People – buy here
Also in from Free People, we can’t resist the enveloping cosiness of this blanket scarf in a striking olive and pink plaid pattern.
With twisted fringe ends and a draped design, it’s sized extra-large, making it totally irresistible for cosying up in on those alfresco meet-ups with friends.
8. Best for adding some glam: Oliver Bonas’ Star Studded Black Scarf
- Star Studded Black Scarf, £39 from Oliver Bonas – buy here
With most socialising taking outdoors now, we’re all about winter accessories that can look a little dressier while still providing essential cosiness.
We’re therefore LOVING this studded number by Oliver Bonas. Featuring a star and spot design in gold-toned studs, it comes in midweight black for added vampiness, as well as fringed edges for extra drama.
Who knew scarves could be this glam?
9. Best for texture: Oliver Bonas’ Tonal Stripe Brown Faux Fur Scarf
- Tonal Stripe Brown Faux Fur Scarf, £39 from Oliver Bonas – buy here
Fancy taking the plush levels up a notch? Oliver Bonas’ faux fur scarf is just what you need around your neck—it’s basically the sartorial version of your favourite childhood teddy bear (but you know, much chicer and more grown-up).
Featuring elegant cream and brown tones, this oh-so-soft scarf will look amazing thrown over any coat for a stylish cosy look this winter.
10. Best for luxury: & Other Stories’ Cashmere Ribbed Knit Scarf
- Cashmere Ribbed Knit Scarf in camel, £85 from & Other Stories – buy here
When it comes to luxury and softness, you can’t beat cashmere.
Designed in Paris, & Other Stories’ offering features a ribbed knit texture and comes in a variety of shades.
We’ve opted for camel: a classic and chic neutral option that works well with any number of outfits and will stay on-trend for many seasons to come, making it a foolproof investment.
