Why oh why is the temperature of every airplane cabin set somewhere between meat locker and Arctic Circle? The scientific answer: fuselage + altitude = brrr! Luckily, there’s an easy way to combat the airplane’s built-in chill factor. Just wrap up in one of the ridiculously warm scarves or wraps below. They’re big enough that they can double as airplane blankets, but chic enough that you’ll arrive at the gate in style. As a bonus, these items make excellent gifts for that frequent flyer on your holiday list.
1. Halogen Cashmere Wrap
When you need full coverage, this giant wrap does not mess around. Not only is it made from 100 percent cashmere, offering maximum plushness, but the knit drapes all the way down to your lap in the front and down to your knees in the back. Despite all that fabric, it can still be rolled up into a scarf -- perfect when you’re deplaning.
2. Burberry Brit Sheer Mega Check Scarf
For the oh-so-fancy Anglophile, this Burberry scarf in the brand’s iconic check print offers a preppy way to bundle up. Yes the price tag, edging close to $400, may elicit a groan, but it’ll broadcast first-class vibes even when you’re wedged into coach.
3. BP. Windowpane Print Scarf
This colorful windowpane print scarf gives a trendy, youthful way to tackle chilly spaces. While it’s big enough to blanket your upper body, the weave is open and gauzy, making it look far more expensive than its $10 price (on sale as of publishing!). Plus, its light and breezy look means it can also segue right out of winter and into spring.
4. Free People Kensington Fringe Scarf
This scarf doesn’t offer as much coverage as others on this list, but it does deliver in the plushness department, especially when it comes to its extra-long fringe. Wound around your neck, the acrylic-and-poly blend have a spongy softness that could practically take the place of a neck pillow. Plus, the subtle herringbone pattern gives it dressy touch.
5. Nordstrom Collection Oversize Cashmere Wrap
The name says it all. Here’s a glamorous wrap that’s also an absolute workhorse, delivering serious warmth (read: 100 percent cashmere) and loads of coverage (read: six feet in length). The oatmeal color can top off any outfit and the knit never gets rumpled, letting you arrive in style.
6. Madewell Fringe Cape Scarf
Technically a cape, this cover-up ranks high on the bundle-up factor, thanks to its warm wool-blend fabric. And while it can be worn draping your torso (arm cutouts help it lay flat against the body), this knitwear can also be looped up into a scarf. Plus, the color, a bleached-out coral red, works in all seasons -- helpful for those summer trips when you’re shivering in your Bermuda shorts.
