If you work somewhere that's a little cold, a pocket scarf is a great winter accessory. Like a regular scarf, it will keep you warm as you go about your day, but when you're up and about, chatting with coworkers or at meetings, you can use the pockets to keep your hands warm.
The little pockets are also a great place to stash a travel size tissue case, your lip balm or anything else you need to keep close at hand in the winter months.
