The Highsnobiety Winter Wardrobe Manual is a guide to dressing well when temperatures plummet. Expect big coats, padded pants, snug accessories, and hibernation-ready homeware.

Hats, scarves, and gloves are vital essentials when it comes to prepping your fall and winter accessories game. But, while gloves and hats tend to come in all shapes and sizes, you'd be forgiven for thinking that the scarf isn't the most exciting member of this trio.  But that's where you're wrong. The scarf has quietly become a playing ground for some of the wildest designs we've seen this season, and it’s time we all appreciated that.

From the industrial technicalities of ADER error to an illusory wrap-around from Martine Rose, this selection proves that settling for a basic scarf is a disservice to the style world. Take a stand and explore the possibilities of highlight winter accessories with these statement scarves.
