2) Fur Scarves
The presentations at various fashion shows this year for Fall/ Winter 2012/ 2013 had female models showcasing fur scarf in very creatively designed patterns and equally well put together combinations. Going by the fashion on the runway, especially from Ralph Lauren, fur scarves are definitely touted to be a raging trend this season.
Fur scarves will be seen in bright, multihued and vibrant looks, in addition to the animal prints, floral prints. Fur scarves of both long and short lengths will be a hit this winter. Watch the trends closely and be creative by inventing your own combinations by pairing a fur scarf with a coat, a jacket, a suit, a gown or a short skirt (and stockings of course, we can’t let you freeze in the cold breeze). A fur scarf will accentuate any outfit you wear.
3) Scarf Material

The designers say a lot of materials are going to rock the scarf-zone this season including silk, fur, knitted material, woolen and skin.
A snood a.k.a. scarf-collar is definitely a head turner and a show stopper at not just fashion shows but at parties and outings too. It certainly was a major attraction at the Fall/ Winter 2012/ 2013 presentations from various fashion houses such as DKNY, Lanvin and more. Designers have literally given you so many options that you can don a different look every day with your snood. Wear a fur snood or a knitted snood depending on your choice for the day, grab a slim & slender snood or drape your neck in a broad and bulky snood depending on the weather of the day.
