In case you leave your scarf at his sister's house!

Scarves are on everyone’s mind thanks to Taylor Swift’s short film for her song "All Too Well (10 Minute Version) (Taylor's Version) [From The Vault]" on her rereleased album Red (Taylor's Version). The beloved song, originally written in 2010, opens with a line about a scarf that is now allegedly in Jake Gyllenhaal's possession. The iconic red scarf from the short film is available as merch on Taylor's website, but due to supply chain shortages, it might take all too long to arrive. Instead, we've picked the best scarves—red or otherwise—that you'll still think about more than 10 years later.

Whether you're looking for comfy cashmere, fluffy faux fur, or freeze-proof fleece, here are the best scarves for fall and winter that will never leave you in the cold.
