It's been cold week here in Helsinki and this morning temperature seemed to have fallen below zero. This has led many to dig out their winter gear from storage, including more thicker and warmer scarves. Although scarves - depending on material of course - are suitable for all seasons, for many it still is an accessory especially for fall and winter weather.

5x scarf for the seasonIn case you are looking for a new scarf for the season, here are 5 options to check out.
In addition to ties, Norwegian Berg&Berg offers scarves with an excellent price-quality-ratio. This Silk-Wool-blend scarf featuring a chic paisley weaving combines nicely autumnal feel with its colors and textures. I got this one in dark grey myself.
London-based Drake'sin has brought the "Moghul"-print back from the archives. Together with the unicorn-print this definitely is one of the coolest patterns there is on the market. Not cheap, but if you looking for a scarf, that will attract attention even hanging on the rack, here Drake offers one. Available course in several colors, orange however is the way the go.
3) Loro Piana
Loro Piana is- if not the best - at least one of the world's best and most famous manufacturers of luxury materials such as cashmere. And the prices are in accordance with that. Light brown, cashmere scarf is made to be used together with your Brioni suit and Isaia overcoat or alternatively in more casual combinations together with your Herno down jacket. For more affordable price - as usual Uniqlo offers a 100% cashmere scarf that is available in multiple colors.
4) Acne Studios
Acne's Canada-scarves have in certain circles and in the blogosphere achieved a cult status, which could be compared to even the popularity of Canada Goose jackets or Louis Vuitton monogram bags. Many places might have sold these out already but it seems that Mr. Porter still has some available, so you might want to pick one from there. Black denims, TOJ bomber and this scarf will make it work. A little more "sophisticated" alternative in terms you are looking for an "oversized" scarf is John Smedley, whose merino wool "shawl" option will definitely keep you warm. Smedley available via their website and in addition at least via Sauma in Helsinki.
