It’s that time of year where we break out our winter boxes and layer clothing upon clothing to bundle up every time that we step outside. The typical hats, gloves, puffers and scarves are essential to every cold-weather wardrobe to not only keep warm but to add some spice to your everyday outfits. The fashion world hasn’t stopped at oversized hoodies and sweatshirts but has implemented this chunky style of clothing into winter accessories. A trend we’re spotting this season takes the typical winter scarf and adds about three more layers of fabric.

Here are VALLEY’s top five picks for oversized scarves this season.
