When Wu-Tang Clan professed “protect ya neck” in 1993, they weren’t talking about scarves, but the statement still applies. Scarves are now an essential accessory to any winter ’fit and the longer the better. Considering that this’ll be wrapped around your neck, you will want to find a quality fabric that can trap heat without beginning to itch.

Below are six oversized scarves to keep your neck (and the rest of your body) intact this season. From Acne Studios there’s a luxe virgin wool scarf with fringed edges in an archetypal pale pink. There’s also a mottled black and white scarf from Saint Laurent, two puffy down-filled quilted nylon scarves from Rick Owens, and an enormous ‘Paris, France’ option from Balenciaga which is so next-level cozy you could go to sleep with it.

We launched Highsnobiety Shopping as a dedicated channel devoted entirely to helping you get the products you want. But we want to make sure we’re doing it right.
