Outerwear is getting heavier here in NYC, but it’s not the dead of winter yet.
With the proper use of fabrics and accessories, you can mix up your layers and keep the not-fucking-around parkas in the closet for a bit longer.
I’ve been looking for the “perfect” chunky scarf for a couple years now, and I think I finally found it. Introducing Yokoo Scarves. She knits every piece in her Etsy store by hand in the color of your choice and the results are amazing. Chunky, soft, durable and most importantly, very warm.
Here Karyn (the soon-to-be host of TheStyleBlogger for Her) and I styled 3 different Yokoo styles.
1. The Every Day Chunky
The ”Ex Boyfriend” is the perfect size for everyday use. Pick one up in a a neutral color (like this one in”oatmeal”) and you’ll find yourself wearing it day in and day out. Truth is, Karyn and I have been wearing these things since the day we got them – we could probably style them in a hundred different ways.
Bonus Tip: There are dozens of ways to tie a scarf (more on this to come). One of the easiest and least fussy is one loose wrap over the jacket. Perfect for a laid-back outfit.
Bonus Tip II: Grey footwear is very underated. In a classic shape (like these chunky longwings) with a neutral bottom, it’s a shoe that stands out from the crowd and is more versatile than you might expect. Post on this coming soon.
