The Brooklyn-based indie designer’s latest collection of stylish winter must-haves are handmade from 100% Peruvian Highland wool (meaning their deliciously soft) and come in three distinct styles: cowl, lapel, and tube. Customize your pick with heart-shaped or round buttons and choose from nine different colors. Each scarf retails for $159, but it’s a worthy investment. I mean, would you ever actually want to take it off?

Spratters & Jayne scarves are available at or on Etsy.

Wear it on your winter vacation, or keep it for your spring wardrobe. This dress easily goes from day to night: pair it with a straw tote and gladiator sandals during the day and switch to heels and a clutch for night.
