Wednesday is probably my favourite day of the week! I get to go through my wishlists, it’s almost the weekend, and best of all, I get to sleep in (no morning class, woohoo!!). I am especially excited for this Wednesday because I get to break down my love for infinity scarves.
What is an infinity scarf? An infinity scarf is a scarf that has no ends. Literally, that is the definition. It’s basically a loop that you just pull over you neck – easy to style, looks cute and keeps you warm (especially when those chilly Fall winds are blowing).
Last year, I really got into the infinity scarf – especially the huge wool or knit ones. I love how you can bury your face in them and how they are so cozy. Some of my favourite Fall looks include infinity scarves (the big cozy ones), and unlike a blanket scarf or a regular long scarf, they are so easy to style. Just plump them up around your neck just the way you want them and you are ready to go!!
Chunky Knit Infinity Scarf, Paula Bianco at Nordstrom Rack, $22.97
Does this not look like the warmest scarf ever? I would love to have this thing around my neck all day!! This is the kind of scarf that would keep you nice and toasty in the Winter time, but act as the perfect focal accessory in the Fall. I love the pattern throughout and the colour is gorgeous. This scarf also comes in cream, which would just be beautiful in the Fall.
Pretty Little Things XL Heavy Scarf, shoptiques.com, $39.00
I love the colour maroon (partially because that is my university colour), because it is dark but not depressing. Sometimes, the colour black drowns a person out. Too much black or navy can make the look too dark, but with maroon, the there is still that brightness of red mixed in so that it breaks up a look. Also, when put against a cream or white backdrop (whether you are wearing cream pants or a sweater, like in the photo below), it really pops and becomes the draw of anyone’s eye! That’s exactly what I love about this heavy scarf! It draws the eye.
Colourblock Infinity Scarf, Paula Bianco at Nordstrom Rack, $22.97
I’m surprised I haven’t written about colour blocking yet…because I am a huge fan of it. Coloru blocking is when blocks of solid colour are worn in one outfit. Whether you do this yourself by wearing solids together, or buy items that are already colour blocked…it’s a great trend and so easy to do. This scarf is colour blocked which is interesting because it is knit. I think the colour block throughout the knitting looks fabulous and so chic. It kind of gives you your colour scheme right there, so pairing this with the right outfit would be simple (stick within that colour scheme).
Well there it is…all of the infinity scarves on my wishlist right now! I have to say, I have a thing for specifically knit scarves, it seems! They are just so comfortable to wear with a cardigan or just a long sleeved tee and step up your look when you’re in a hurry!! No need for jewelry (well, I mean you can still wear jewelry with a scarf…), just throw on the scarf and dash out the door!
Look forward to an upcoming post that I will do on styling infinity scarves!! Not there are too many ways to style them, but there are other pieces in your wardrobe that look great with them…and you may not even have thought to combine the two!! I should do that in the next week or so…
