In colder seasons, your wardrobe improves by 100 percent, because you get to wear scarves. If you’ve ever been outside without a scarf and then added one to your outfit, you know that this can make a huge difference in terms of warmth… and, of course, style (you can tie scarves in so many different ways!). Scarves can add everything from color to texture to book references to an outfit. That's why these literary scarves are the perfect accessories for the winter ahead.
On chilly autumn afternoons, or cold winter evenings, all you want to do is curl up by the fire and read, right? However, if you must leave your reading nook and venture into the freezing outdoors, you’re going to need the appropriate clothing. You’re going to need a scarf. And since you have to leave your book behind (well, let’s be real, your book will still be in your purse even if you leave the house), you might as well take it with you in the form of a scarf. These literary-inspired scarves will warm your neck and your heart with their book references, so you’ll feel cozy all winter long.
Pride And Prejudice Scarf
I declare there is no enjoyment like reading, closely followed by the enjoyment of wrapping this Pride and Prejudice-inspired scarf around your neck. It features text from the book, and it is a truth universally acknowledged that Austen herself would approve of this scarf.
