Default Opinions on a scarf please

I'm already doing abit of mental Autumn/Winter shopping - and while I don't have the money for it now I may next month.

Any thoughts on this?

I have a smaller one in pink already - but wanted something a little more neutral in tone. The quality of these are amazing - they don't pill, pick up odors, or get itchy against skin. I've had my pink one for ages and it still looks new.

Or this? -
This one sort of looks nice too - I kinda like the fringe thing it has going on

I prefer the first one, and I do like it. The second one is nice too, but I'd get the first one just because it's such a clean, classy look. (also I understand paying for quality but 800 dollars for the second scarf? eek)

Yikes...$$$....

They're both pretty, though. I like the checked one better, while I think the blue one has a little too much going on (and doesn't look like it would be very versatile if you wanted to wear it a different way).

My opinion is that there is no way on this earth i would ever spend that much money on a scarf!!!!

But I prefer the 2nd one.

But I still wouldn't buy it, they both look cheap to me... I have tons of scarves, all cheap and they've lasted years too

Honestly? Neither.

If I had to pick one, I'd pick the Burberry one as it is the most versatile and it looks the warmest.

Neither. Not because of looks but because of the price tag.

I have a scarf that looks just like the burbury one. I bought it in Italy - its cashmere, it doesn't pill and I've have it for well over 5 years now... it cost me 40 - which IMO is in itself expensive for a scarf.

NO way on earth would I spend that I spent that on almost all the baby things I bought for the newborn and I went with cloth diapers and they arent cheap.

If I HADDD to though it would be the first one.

I would go for the first one.. it's classic and burberry lasts FOREVER usually.

but honestly, burberry isn't known for their scarves really and I'm not sure how the quality is. Honestly, I would go for a trench lol

I think they're both very nice. The gray one is absolutely gorgeous imo...very stylish and chic. But $750!!! Holy cow. I wouldn't spend anywhere near that on a scarf. But I do spend it on landscaping. LOL. So, it just depends on individual preferences. I guess too, that it depends on what you're looking for. If you want warmth, go for wool. I personally prefer a plaid that's not as boxy...smaller squares and things. But it is still quite pretty.

Neither is my style at all.

I'd be more likely to wear the grey one, but because of the price tag, I'd never even come near either of them.

I could get an entire winter wardrobe for $750, lol.
