“It’s the subtle nuances that separate us from the pack,” our own VP and DMM of men’s tailored clothing and furnishings John Totolis so expertly put it. For the Barneys man, accessories are a pivotal part of putting together a polished look.

Read on for the ten trends to know about now, and then head to Barneys to complete your winter wardrobe.

The Oversized Scarf

The poncho is to outerwear as the oversized scarf is to accessories: warm, slightly unexpected, and absolutely necessary. Kolor’s neutral take on the trend adds a welcome layer to any look.
