Winter Outfit Inspo: Plaid Infinity Scarf + Knee-High Boots

We’ve been talking lately about quality wardrobe basics and changing up simple looks with accessories, and today’s look is another example of that.

This camel crewneck cashmere sweater is one I’ve worn a lot of different ways. I usually like to put a vest or structured jacket on top, but this time I left it plain and added a plaid infinity scarf.

If I had a navy blue quilted vest, I would have worn it, but I don’t and it’s fine without. While another layer would be nice, it’s amazing how much warmer you can be just by wrapping a cozy scarf around your neck.

Unfortunately this one sold out before I could post it. Womp… womp… I just bought it a week or so ago, but scarves just don’t seem to stay in stock for very long.

Here are a few more plaid infinity scarves at Nordstrom, or you probably have something in your closet. This is really more of an outfit formula than an original look anyway.

What I like about this outfit is how dark denim echos the navy in the scarf, and the cognac boots compliment the camel sweater. Then the red and the light beige tones in the scarf pop the look.

For accessories, I wore a few of my favorite designer jewelry pieces to keep the look classy but simple. I also love how the dark raspberry nail polish contrasts against the camel sweater.

While ankle boots and over-the-knee boots are having a moment, I still think knee-high boots create the most flattering overall body proportions, and they just have a ladylike appeal that I appreciate.

These boots have also sold out, but this pair is similar. While they’re a little dressier than mine, they would be a great choice if you want something to go with both jeans and dresses.

I would probably normally carry my Neverfull tote with this, at least that’s what I carry most days and it would certainly complement this outfit, but for these pictures I opted for my Rebecca Minkoff Love crossbody.

This bag is my go-to when I don’t want to carry a big tote or hobo because it holds my full-size wallet and a few other essentials. If you need a good functional crossbody that looks great too, I highly recommend this one. It comes in a lot of colors, but this is the mushroom and it pretty much goes with everything. I love how it resembles a Channel but without the four-digit price tag.

I think what makes this look work so well is the fit and proportion of everything, and I really love the classic navy and camel color palette.
