Scarves are the ultimate winter accessory. Not only will they help to keep you snug when the temperature drops, but they also come in a range of hues and prints that you can match with any outfit. But did you know that there are multiple types of scarves out there to serve different purposes?
From classic scarves to ones with pockets to keep your hands warm, we've rounded up five types of winter scarves to help you pick the most suitable one this winter.
1. Regular scarf
Classics are classics for a reason and this includes the regular scarf. Depending on the weather, you can wear an ordinary scarf either draped loosely around your neck or tied up tight.
It’s warm, it’s snug and it’ll keep your neck protected from the cold. Need we say more?

2. Infinity scarf
Infinity scarves are a really simple way of keeping your neck warm without having any dangly ends getting in the way. As they tend to sit a little higher, you can also use them to cover your mouth and nose when the air has an extra bite to it.
As an added bonus, it won't come unwrapped suddenly in the wind, exposing your neck and face to an unpleasant blast of cold air.

Snoods are wrap-around scarves that have the capacity to cover and shield your head from the cold like a hood, while still functioning as an infinity scarf around your neck. Often made from a thicker wool, these will stop heat escaping through your head.
While snoods and infinity scarves may look similar on the rack, they serve different purposes and you'll achieve different results with each.

4. Scarves with pockets
All women know that the addition of pockets to almost anything is cause for celebration. And when you're stuck out in the winter air and can't feel your hands, pockets in your scarf are an absolute lifesaver.
If you're someone who really feels the cold, you can even try popping a hand warmer from Priceline or Chemist Warehouse into the pockets to stay extra toasty.

It may not technically count as a scarf, but a big shawl or pashmina can function in just the same way. The best part? You can cover your shoulders and even wrap it around your arms, maximising the surface area that's covered and giving you more warmth.
If you want to wear it as a scarf, all you have to do is roll it up slightly and your neck will be free from the breezy winter air.
