4 Fabulous Scarves to Pump Up Your Winter Wardrobe

Scarves aren't just for grandma anymore. They are for all gals who want to get more warmth without another bulky layer. Scarves have a way of keeping us warm without looking frumpy. It's a fashionably hip accessory to a winter outfit that looks upbeat. So, have some fashion sense and purchase a nice scarf to accompany your outfits.

Since we are still in October I figured why not stick with the Breast Cancer Awareness Month theme and pick out a fun pink scarf. This pink Michael Kors scarf has an awesome eccentric look and I love the zipper on the top going up like a pullover sweater. This scarf has more style than most jackets and therefore it's my number one choice for this winter's scarf must-have. There are 3 colors to choose from, but obviously pink is the way to go. Going out with a black or grey scarf means nothing -- you might as well just bundle up and look frumpy while you're at it. If you are going to go wrap a scarf around you, make a statement by buying a bright one. Rock your warmth with some color.

For a little more pizzazz in the scarf section of your closet, check out this Tolani Birds Scarf. This scarf has amazing contrasting colors that really pop with the gorgeous blue background. The colors are all in harmony with one another and the bird theme is beautiful. Birds represent freedom and good luck, and that's something we all need in our lives.

Okay, okay I give in. I had to showcase something neutral to go with different kinds of clothing and different looks in your closets. Seriously, Michael Kors is a scarf genius. Who would have thought? This next tan colored scarf is an over the top diva scarf. The scarf looks more like a jacket because it allows you to keep your hands warm in faux fur pockets. I love the creativity and the thickness of the scarf.

'Tis the season in this red faux fur wrap (aka, oversized scarf). I love the little dangling red fur balls at the end. What better way to keep a girly persona? The elegance of red is undeniable and the innocence of the fur balls keeps it easy going. This scarf is perfect for holiday parties and a great mini blanket.
