While fleece may be heavier than other fabrics, it can actually open up the range of things you can wear underneath it. For a holiday party, if that great dress you just bought is short sleeved, add a fleece scarf of a neutral color, like grey, to your outfit to keep you toasty while still allowing you to show off your dress. Wrap the scarf around your neck once, with both ends hanging in front of you, for a warm and casual look. Try the Roundtree and Yorke Fleece Scarf in grey, available at Dillard’s for $32.
If you have a dark colored peacoat, opt for a louder print when you choose your fleece scarf. A fleece infinity scarf, which is one that is basically sewn together at the ends so that it is just one large circle, is a great choice to go over a peacoat this winter. Hang it around your neck once, for a more open, casual look, or wrap it two or three times when it gets chilly. Try the Plaid Fleece Infinity Scarf in Fuchsia, available online at Etsy, for only $18.70.
When it gets cold enough to pull that puffy jacket out of the back of your closet, for a fleece scarf that’s extra long so it can be wrapped around your neck up to three times. Tuck the ends in the front of your coat, behind the zipper, for added warmth and protection from the wind. Try the Extra Long Grey Fleece Scarf with fringe, available online from Etsy, for $15.
A fleece scarf in a hot leopard or cheetah print can add a little spice to any old outfit, and will definitely turn heads. Dress up a jeans and tee with a fierce fleece scarf in a bold pattern, like the Luxury Divas Animal Print Ultra Soft Long Fleece Scarf (with Fringe), available online from Sears, for just $8.99. Wrap it around your neck once and let the ends hang, or wrap it around multiple times so that there is less material hanging and more material around your neck. You could also throw it on, one end in the front of you, and one end in the back, for a more casual look. If you want to try something daring, twist the scarf around itself and then wrap it around your neck, to add dimension to your outfit.
If you take your warmth seriously, then the only option for you is a fleece scarf. A good choice is North Face’s ‘Flash’ Fleece Scarf, in grey, blue, or black, available from Nordstrom for $30. Tuck this scarf in under your workout clothes, track suits, and biking jackets, to hold in that extra warmth. Pick up a pair of matching earmuffs and gloves if you want to be really stylish.
