Stopping By Woods On A Snowy Evening

Mr. Redford wears a scarf with appropriate panache in character as the Great Gatsby in 1974.

Two excellent statement scarves from Alexander McQueen. The first with McQueen's signature skull, available here, and the second with a gorgeous fox print, available here. Great conversation starters.

Below, a vintage French ski poster.

  Armand Diradourian scarf. Quite lively with the contrast striping.

Gloverall striped scarf.

Below, two pieces from Moncler, perfect for spending the holidays in Paris. The scarf is available here.

Christmas in Paris. 

Colin Firth and Helena Bonham Carter in excellent seasonal attire in "The King's Speech".

Paul Leinburd for Crown Cap fur scarf with cashmere lining. Classic, warm and attractive. Gives off the air of a royal huntsman. Would look great paired with an incredible Vicuña or camelhair jacket.

Love the above pair of gloves from Dents. Love just about anything with a red accent, actually - as long as it is tasteful.

Gorgeous unisex gloves from one of Europe's finest glovemakers, Roeckl. Picked up a pair of these in Germany a few years back and they are still as good as new. I highly recommend you pick up a pair.

Tibetan flag scarf by Roda. Available at Barneys.

Johnny Depp is always dashing in a fedora and scarf. Nicely played combination of accessories.

Above, a polka dot scarf from Marni - available from Mr. Porter.

Above, a gorgeous nautical themed scarf from Valentino.

Yellow, black and white graphic scarf from Bernhard Willhelm.

Alain Delon in Paris.

Above, a wool cap with eyeglass details from CP Company

Above, Christmas in Gstaad.

Below, a traditional style winter cap from Comme des Garçons Shirt. Old fashioned patterns are definitely making a comeback.

Whose woods these are I think I know.
His house is in the village though;
He will not see me stopping here
To watch his woods fill up with snow.

My little horse must think it queer
To stop without a farmhouse near
Between the woods and frozen lake
The darkest evening of the year.

He gives his harness bells a shake
To ask if there is some mistake.
The only other sound’s the sweep
Of easy wind and downy flake.

The woods are lovely, dark and deep.
But I have promises to keep,
And miles to go before I sleep,
And miles to go before I sleep.
