statement scarves

Gigantic cable knits and intricate layering makes the scarves at Anthropologie this season stand out from all the rest. I love the ruffles on these two and how the eyes is instantly drawn to the contrast between the scarf and hat/scarf and gloves. And don't you love that warm, royal blue they've paired everything with?! It's such a cozy color!

Urban Outfitters is overrun with the generic afghan/square scarves, but I found these two to be quite refreshing. First, a gigantic chunky knit, in a natural tone, could carry an entire outfit (and would provide much warmth!) The second, an interesting ethnic-inspired hooded scarf, has a nordic print on the bottom, but a middle-eastern feel to it. I love the plain peacoat they picture it with - having a minimalist base and then this interesting, one of a kind scarf to top it off works really well.
