Best Lightweight Scarves for Transitional Temps

When the weather is balmy this Autumn, reach for a scarf without so much density.


The transitional temperatures of fall can be tricky to dress for: chilly mornings and nights are often offset by balmy days. As is preached in countless menswear publications, layering is your friend in the shoulder season. But here’s a slightly less ubiquitous recommendation: one of the best fall accessories is the lightweight scarf. Manufactured with a looser weave, these scarves add a breathable layer without the heavy insulation of a chunky knit. Wear them as you would any other scarf — just sooner. There’s no rule that says you have to wait until the first frost to break out this cool-weather accessory.
