How to Wear a Really Big Scarf

It doesn't get cold very often in Los Angeles but this last week has been as cold as it gets. I like to wear scarves all year long but winter is the only time I can wear the really big thick ones. I've been inspired by street style photos like this one of really big scarves layered over coats and skinny jeans.

Here are the essentials for how to create your own really big scarf look:

1. Vancouver Colorblocked Scarf from Ruche
First off (obviously) you need big scarf that you can wrap and wrap until it's a big bundle of cozy.

2. Striped Easy Tee from Madewell
Layering is key to staying to warm in the cold days of winter. So, get out those long sleeve t-shirts and sweaters. If you can find a casual, cool t-shirt like this one you are sure to look chic whether you are all bundled for the wind or sans a few layers in front of the fire. The little hint of red on the pocket plays nicely with the red lipstick and gives this neutral outfit a touch of excitement.

3. Steve Madden Troopa boots from Piperlime
Boots are essential for keeping those little toes warm. Boots with feminine details like these lace up ones will keep your look pretty, refined and functional.

4. Twig High-Rise Jeans from Urban Outfitters
Dark skinny jeans create a foundation for the outfit – when combined with a thick coat and really big scarf, you'll have a silhouette that's top-heavy in just the right way.

5. Smashbox Red Lipstick from Sephora
Keep this casual look chic and your confidence high with a seriously red lip.

6. Black and White Boyfriend Coat from TopShop
This oversized coat is sure to keep you warm and cozy. The wider on top shape will keep support your really big scarf and emphasize your gorgeous skinny gams.
