There’s a definite chill in the air and the IndyBest team don’t need more of an excuse than that to buy a new scarf. Whether you’re after a quick fashion fix to lift an outfit and keep the cold out, or want to buy a cashmere piece that will last you years, we think you’ll find one you like among this little lot. We’ve got the trends covered: faux fur, pastels, leopard print and monochrome, and some versatile classics too.

For a scarf that won’t date but manages to be on-trend for autumn-winter 2014, try Topshop’s monochrome and pink dogtooth one. Or to make a bold statement, we like Helen Moore’s British-made Vixen.
