Scarves are no-brainer accessories for winter.
Puffer scarves? They may not feel like staples in the same way as knits, but they’re fast becoming that.

I’m sure you witnessed the renaissance of puffer jackets when autumn started. They’ve cemented their status as staples at this point, becoming this season’s it item.
Perhaps less obvious is the accessory they’ve brought with them this season.
Puffer scarves seem to be popping up everywhere I look, from Instagram to the new in section on ASOS.
I know having something so huge around your neck may seem uncomfortable, but in the case of puffer scarves, it’s actually quite the opposite.
Instead they’re cosy and warm, perhaps more so than their knitted counterparts.
If puffer coats can make your body feel warm without literally weighing you down, these insulated scarves can do the same for your neck.
If you’re still not sure about how to style them, you can take inspiration from the runways of Roksanda and Holzweiler.
For a more ‘real-life’ take on this style, you can look at Zara, The North Face and COLLUSION, among others.
Aside from being practical, many of these padded scarves are also fun to pair with this season’s trends (in case you missed it: we’re all about textures and colours this year).
If you’re ready to give them a go, here are my top picks amongst all the puffer scarves I looked at (and there were a lot).
