    They can be worn in a variety of ways, come in an array of prints, and have the ability to make us feel like we're wearing a socially acceptable blanket. What more could you ask for in a piece of apparel?

    1. A Maurader's Map scarf to keep your winter playful and full of adventure.

    Inspired by the classic map from Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, you can expect this scarf to be awesome! It's perfect for the Potter fan who wants to keep the story close to their heart all winter.

    Promising review: "To say I adore this scarf is a bit of an understatement. My husband picked out this as one of my birthday gifts, and I honestly don't know who was more excited when I opened this package. I really appreciate all the detail of the map that is on the fabric. I also think that the black background really helps to make the beige design pop even more. The fabric itself is on the lighter side, but it is a very wide cut for the scarf, which makes for nice, cozy layers while literally wrapped up in my favorite story. I can wrap this twice around my neck (I'm an average-size female if that helps) with a decent amount of scarf left over." —Lizzie D

    Get it from Amazon for $12.70.

    2. This ribbed scarf, which is ultra cozy and includes a touch of fringe to take your winter looks to the next level.

    Ready, set, snuggle! The ribbed texture on this scarf is exactly what I'm looking for this season — and I'm loving how thick the item is. You (and your dog) will have no trouble keeping warm in this bad boy.

    Promising review: "Got this as a gift for my partner, who has a hard time staying warm, now with every intent to steal it. So soft and warm. The gray is gorg. I will be getting for myself in other colors. It’s a little Lenny Kravitz-in-a-scarf in the best way possible. You won’t regret this purchase!" —airietty

    Get it from Free People for $48 (available in seven colors).

    3. A colorful checkered scarf to add to your rotation and keep you cozy all season long.,

    Many reviewers say it feels like cashmere, plus it comes in SO many colors and has fun fringe on the end — so it can totally transform a basic outfit into a fashionable look.

    Promising review: "Once again my latest addition from Plum Feathers delivers. I have two 'go-to's' for my ever-growing scarf collection and Plum Feathers has been my #1. I love that this is a bit different in that the plaid is on the ends and the striped colors run from end to end, giving it a nice and different look when wrapped around the neck. Colors look very nice. I like how soft these always feel. Great way to change an outfit entirely by just changing the scarf." —ILoveGadgets

    Get it from Amazon for $13.99+ (available in 43 colors).

    4. A Mickey Mouse scarf that will keep you cozy and let you subtly show off your love for Disney.

    This super-soft scarf pays tribute to everyone's favorite mouse without shouting it from the rooftops. You can wrap yourself up in the magic of Mickey, but look super chic while you do so! (This is for sure on my must-buy list for the winter.)

    Get it from ShopDisney for $48.95.

    5. This faux-fur oblong scarf to add a touch of old Hollywood glamour to any outfit you own.

    Can't you just picture casually flinging this chic scarf over your shoulder as you attend a fancy event like a play or tree lighting this winter? Because I sure can. Something about this look says "Elizabeth Taylor" to me.

    Get it from Forever 21 for $14.90 (available in blush and cream).

    6. A pashmina shawl that feels like cashmere but won't break the bank.,

    Perfect for when a cold chill starts to creep into the air, this 30% cotton/70% poly fringed scarf will quickly become your go-to winter accessory. It's available in SO many colors — and you'd better believe I'm placing multiple orders.

    Promising review: "I bought these for my bridesmaids at my recent wedding. They came well packaged individually and looked nice. When I gave them to my bridesmaids as part of their gifts, they could not stop running their fingers over them and saying how amazing they felt on. One of my bridesmaids even said that I must have splurged for a silk/wool mix! I did tell them the truth — that they were a bargain on Amazon and had no fancy fabric content." —DT2014

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99+ (available in 27 colors).

    7. This paisley scarf that will keep you warm and turn any outfit from drab to *fab*.

    This unique scarf will help you spice up any last-minute outfit you throw together. It is made with a double layer of fabric and 4" fringe trim on both ends in addition to being reversible — plus the price is right! What more could you as for?

    Get it from Walmart for $6.99 (available in purple, white, and yellow).

    8. A luxurious fringe blanket scarf as plush as it is stylish — you'll want it in every color.

    Within moments of laying my eyes on this fringed beauty, made exclusively for Anthropologie, I added it to my holiday wish list. I can easily picture myself cozying up under this all winter.

    Promising review: "I'm a huge fan of 'blanket' scarves. This one is no exception. The material is so soft and plush and I love the color even more. Typically I buy everything in black, white, or gray, but I bought this scarf in pink. I love the color so much, it's just like it appears online. It's more of a muted dusty rose/blush color. It's just beautiful and I love that I can wrap up in it if needed. Highly recommend, and can't beat the price." —JoeySTL

    Get it from Anthropologie for $48 (available in six colors).

    9. This lattice-print scarf, which can be worn in more ways than you can count.

    Fun fact: Amazon is an AMAZING place to order blanket scarves from. I have about five, including this one, and they are everything you want in a scarf. You can drape it over you as a shawl, knot it around your neck for a coiffed look, or simply use it as a blanket while you're at the office. Get creative, people!

    Promising review: "Beautiful fall color and a great length/width for a shoulder wrap! Many compliments on this and I purchased the blue/off-white/red one as well. They go with anything you wear that you need a little more warmth with. I plan on wearing them with tank tops, as a soft wrap to cover up with when I am out on a cool summer morning in the RV. So very lovely, indeed!!" —Debra Miglionico

    Get it from Amazon for $8.99+ (available in 12 colors).

    10. A chunky knit scarf, because it's exactly what you want to wear while you catch snowflakes on your tongue.

    Seriously, can't you imagine the heroine of a Hallmark Christmas movie with her arms outstretched, twirling around in the snow, wearing this scarf? The structure of this 100% acrylic accessory will make any lazy outfit look a little more put together.

    Get it from Forever 21 for $14.90 (available in mustard, red, and navy).

    11. This ruffled scarf to transform even the plainest of winter outfits into a fancy ~look~ your friends will envy.

    This gem of an accessory will look fabulous with a plain sweater or layered over your puffer jacket. The ruffles give this scarf a cozy but delicate silhouette.

    Promising review: "I saw this item in the store yesterday and fell in love. This is a massive scarf/blanket-type item, not really the kind that you'd tuck into the collar of a coat. The design of this item is such that it won't really lie flat, it's kind of in a permanent ruffle. I am looking forward to wearing it on days when it's not cold enough for a coat, or I will bring it to work to drape on myself on days when the office is chilly. My only question is how many/which colors to get." —RLMnj

    Get it from Anthropologie for $68 (available in four colors).

    12. A classic plaid blanket scarf for when you just can't handle the outdoors but sadly need to leave your house. Bundle up!,

    Whether you've left to forage for food at the grocery story or need walk your dog around the block, heading outside in cold winter temperatures is not ideal. Luckily, scarves like this exist to make it less awful. You're welcome.

    Promising review: "I have been purchasing on Amazon for as long as I can remember and this scarf right here is the best purchase that I have ever made. THE BEST. I love plaid. I love everything about plaid. I came across this scarf and thought, 'Well hey this looks like everything else I own so I might as well buy this.' So I did. This thing comes in the mail and I'm excited. I open up the package and then I touch it. It's so soft. I feel like I'm petting a bunch of tiny kittens. It's thin but not too thin. It doesn't feel cheap. I like this because then it's not super bulky around my neck. I was freezing in my office yesterday and unwrapped my scarf and made myself a fun little blanket to enjoy during my 9-5. I felt so cozy and warm. It was wonderful." —Sarah

    Get it from Amazon for $12.99+ (available in 12 colors).

    13. This color-block faux stole that oozes so much class you'll probably be mistaken for an influencer.

    Looking for the perfect work-to-weekend item? Here it is! This faux stole can keep you comfortable while you get shit done in the office and then transform into a fabulous accessory for a night out on the town.

    Promising review: "I hadn’t originally planned to purchase this. I bought this on impulse and so glad I did. The green and gold colors are so unexpected and rich. The quality shows in the price. The fur is so soft, and length is generous. I bought many items from the collection and this surprisingly ended up being my favorite." —JB2231

    Get it from Nordstrom for $89 (available in green, lavender, and pink).

    14. An infinity scarf to make sure your neck is never exposed to the elements and that your outfit is always accessorized.,

    Who doesn't love a nice infinity scarf? If you're someone who struggles with styling your scarves correctly, you won't have to think twice about throwing this one over your head and moving on with your day.

    Promising review: "I absolutely LOVE this scarf, because of not only how soft this is, but how much warmth this scarf provides while being a fashionable staple piece to your wardrobe. I live in Alaska, so I can definitely vouch for our cold weather here, and for this scarf to be cute and warm gives it an extra five stars from me for being a genuinely good product for meeting its purpose.

    For future customers that are on the fence about purchasing this, DO IT! It's totally worth it!." —Sol

    Get it from Amazon for $8.99+ (available in 38 colors).

    15. This color-block oblong scarf, which features a unique ribbed trim that will stand out against your winter wardrobe.

    To say that I'm obsessed with this scarf would be an understatement. The mustard (or as some of you may know it as, Gen Z Yellow) color pairs so nicely with the forest green and white. Put this on your wish list STAT.

    Get it from Forever 21 for $17.90.

    16. A striped blanket scarf essential for keeping warm this season, with a subtle striped motif as eye-catching as it is snuggly.

    Can someone please just deliver this scarf to my front door? Just looking at it makes me want to wrap it around my body and hibernate for a month.

    Get it from Anthropologie for $48 (available in four colors).

    17. A leopard-print scarf to spice up your day, your look, and pretty much your entire life.

    If it were up to me, everyone would have a leopard-print scarf. This magical print has the power to take a basic black sweater and elevate it to the next level. And I'm not the only one who thinks so — nearly 500 customers on Nordstrom agree.

    Promising review: "Love this scarf! Perfect length, print, and weight. Some scarves are so bulky and make you look like a chipmunk. Not this one. It actually provides plenty warmth around your neck without the bulk AND it's cute. I will reach for this accessory for years to come." —Aly1267

    Get it from Nordstrom for $19.

    18. A thick cable scarf that you can pair with either your heavy coat or a simple sweater to stay snug as a bug all day.,

    Reviewers love how long this scarf is — you can wrap it around several times for ultimate cozy vibes. It's made with chunky, super-soft yarn that is both stylish and practical.

    Promising review: "I absolutely adore this scarf. It very soft but very durable. The length of it is is way over what I was imagining it would be but I really like it for that fact. It is easy to wrap multiple times or do some more fancy knots and holds, and even then there's material to hold over your mouth and nose to keep warm. I chose some nice neutral colors so I know it will match whatever I choose it to." —Amanda W

    Get it from Amazon for $14.99+ (available in 26 colors).

    19. This boucle scarf, because it's the coziest thing you'll add to your closet this season — I promise.

    When winter rolls around I'm usually all for throwing fashion out the window and focusing on being as comfortable as possible. Luckily for me (and anyone else who chooses warmth > style) this scarf checks both of those boxes.

    Promising review: "I bought this scarf in cream and have worn it every day for nearly two weeks. To say it’s soft is an understatement — like a fuzzy cloud. The color has a slight gray undertone (not beigey). I live in San Francisco where layering is a way of life, so this is the perfect addition to my closet." —DeborahD

    Get it from Anthropologie for $48 (available in five colors).

    20. A monogrammed scarf that will never get mistakenly taken home by someone else at a holiday party because it HAS YOUR NAME ON IT.

    I can't possibly be the only one who has lost a favorite scarf, coat, sweater, etc., at a house party or restaurant because there was nothing distinguishable about it. This scarf solves that problem! Personalization is free, plus it's super cute.

    Available from StylizeTN on Etsy for $16 (available in five colors).

    21. This stylish scarf perfect for diehard football fanatics who attend games no matter the weather.,

    My team may suck (GO JETS!) but I would happily sport this scarf on the daily. I love the woven look and how the scarves subtly showcase the team's colors, but in a fashionable way! This accessory is trendy and perfect for game day.

    Get it from Target for $29.99 (available in a variety of styles).

    22. A scarf that quite literally lets the world know you are, in fact, wearing a scarf.

    Looking to make a real statement this winter? This repetition scarf will definitely accomplish that goal. This accessory is made from acrylic and is 70 inches long, making it comfortable and long enough to toss over your shoulder.

    Promising review: "I ordered the black & white scarf & couldn't be happier. It's bold — a definite statement piece. It's wide enough it be worn as a wrap and long enough to throw one side over the shoulder without affecting the length. It's also thick and very soft. I'm 100% in love!" —Jet442

    Get it from Anthropologie for $88 (available in two styles).

    23. This teddy bear scarf that will make you feel like you're still snuggled up in bed despite the fact you're out running errands.

    Teddy bear coats are all the rage right now — and I can see why! They're cozy, cute, and truly take an outfit to the next level. This scarf version of the style trend is sure to make a lovely addition to your wardrobe.

    Promising review: "Perfect for an always cold human who lives in an always cold place! So snuggly and warm and literally goes with everything. Not to mention, it is trendy as ever; all the cool kids are digging the 'teddy' style. 10/10 recommend my friends." —coldgurl04

    Get it from Urban Outfitters for $29 (available in beige, gray, and pink).

    24. A basic wool scarf you can wear every single day and with every single outfit.,

    While I love and own many big, bulky scarves with an array of patterns on them, I can recognize how important it is to have a basic, plain colored scarf in the rotation. This style is versatile and can essentially be worn with anything!

    Promising review: "This thing is so warm and cozy!! I've been keeping it in my office to wrap up when it's cold — which is always. Seems like it could potentially snag easily, but hasn't so far. I bought it in cream and it's a lovely color. Nice size too, so you can wrap it more like a shawl, or wrap more like a scarf like in the picture. Definitely already considering buying in more colors. I live in San Francisco where we get cold, foggy mornings pretty much year round, and this is a great, versatile layer! Would be awesome for plane rides too to cozy up with." —courtney frager

    Get it from Amazon for $13.99 (available in 15 colors).

    25. This crochet loop scarf that's way cuter than the one your great-aunt is inevitably going to gift you (sorry, auntie!).

    Everyone has that relative who pushes handmade scarves on them, right? While those are adorable and made with love (YOU BETTER ACCEPT IT AND WEAR IT AROUND GRANDMA, OK?!), this one is slightly more stylish and chic. I love how it loosely hangs for a cool bohemian look.

    Get it from Urban Outfitters for $14.99.

    26. A chunky knit cowl scarf that's straight out of snuggly winter dreams.

    There is no question that this oversized knit scarf will keep you warm this season. It's 35 inches long by 18.5 inches wide, so there's more than enough fabric to shield your body from the elements.

    Get it from Free People for $68 (available in blush, grey, and ivory).

    27. This buffalo-check scarf to instantly make your sweaters or outerwear look more polished.

    One of my all-time favorite flannels is red-and-black buffalo print. I can't get enough of it, which is why I'm inspired to add this scarf into my Amazon cart immediately. Reviewers say it has a super-soft cashmere-like feel without adding extra bulk into your outfit. Sign me up!

    Promising review: "I love this scarf! It was supposed to be for my boyfriend, but I love how it looks. The fabric is really good. There were no fuzzies coming off of it. He wore it with a white shirt and it looked great. Now I can use it for when I get cold or as an accent piece to my outfit." —Tasha-Ann Torres

    Get it from Amazon for $13.90 (available in red, gray, and tan).

    28. A chunky infinity scarf that will make you feel like you're on a luxurious, snowy vacation.

    Can't you just picture slipping this scarf on over your head and hitting the slopes? (Or, if you're like me, hunkering down in the lodge to read a book?) Either way, this snuggly accessory is colorful and sure to keep your neck toasty.

    Get it from Urban Outfitters for $24 (available in two styles).

    29. This knit scarf, if you're looking for an accessory that matches almost anything, so you can wear it every. damn. day.

    Doesn't this scarf just scream "snow day"? You'll definitely want to be bundled up with this cozy garment wrapped around your face until summertime.

    Get it from Urban Outfitters for $34.

    30. And this timeless, investment-worthy Burberry scarf, which will never go out of style — heck, I'd pass this accessory onto my grandchildren.

    Who isn't familiar with the classic giant check-print wool scarf from Burberry? It's pricey, but also so stylish and timeless that you can possibly cherish it as a family heirloom. You can definitely wear it all year long, which IMO makes spending the extra cash on it worth it.

    Promising review: "Absolutely stunning scarf! I really debated between this silk scarf and the cashmere scarf, and I finally pulled the trigger on this one. I love how light the fabric is. It’s perfect for fall, winter, and spring! It can also be paired with a simple LBD to take it up a notch. Love!" —Nordyholic23

    Get it from Nordstrom for $390 (available in ash rose, classic, and stone).

    Happy shopping — and remember you can NEVER have too many scarves.
