No matter the season, office coverups are essential in Hong Kong. How many times have you turned up to work without your cardigan (read: blanket scarf) and curse to yourself as your hands get colder by the minute at your desk? In all offices across Hong Kong, everyone's divided into two camps: Team AC and Team Anti-AC. Honestly though — do we really need the air conditioner on during the winter? If you're wanting to avoid looking like a knit-wrapped mummy (just in case any clients or VIPs decide to make a surprise trip to your office), these extra fancy designer cover-ups will keep you warm and looking stylish.
With Gucci's iconic 'GG' logo, this silk-blend scarf (HK$3,440) is not only 'in' right now but can work well to keep you warm if you loop it around your neck while you're in the office.
Alexander McQueen's signature skulls scarf is a classic you should have in your closet. It's made from mid-weight wool and cashmere and will drape effortlessly around your frame.
Featuring the instantly recognisable 'FF' logo, Fendi's wool blend scarf is a timely piece to get to complete your look for the new season. Pair it with the label's white sneakers.
If you're looking for the thickest of coverups, this is the one. Balenciaga's shearling scarf is made for cold weather days, so we're pretty confident that it'll be able to keep you warm in the office.
