Take a break from leopard print, and make your outfit work with an animal patterned scarf.
Too cold to go without a scarf, but not cold enough to dig out the woolly ones? Transitional dressing comes in to play at this time of the year, and there’s no transitional piece that works harder than a soft, lightweight scarf. It’ll neatly fit into your bag, but adds a cozy layer whenever there’s a chill in the air.
Instead of opting for a plain, block-color scarf, try out one of these fun animal pattern ones: a scarf with a novelty animal print adds interesting detail to a regular jeans and sweater combination, or could become the focal point of your whole outfit.
