If your baby bump has you sweating bullets despite the fact it's December (bet you have a newfound respect for those mamas who suffered through their last trimester in August, huh?), you're probably not too keen to pull on a wooly sweater. But when a paper-thin T-shirt isn't quite enough—the temperatures are below freezing after all—a scarf can be a nice not-too-bulky sweater alternative. In addition to providing the perfect dosage of warmth, we've got three more reasons to wrap one around your neck:
1. It will jazz up those solid maternity tops like it's its job. (Which, it kind of is.) A pretty pattern or playful fur can be just the element of interest your prenatal wardroble needs.
2. It will always fit. And that's not something to take for granted.
3. It can be taken off just as easily as it's put on, so you can lose it when a hot flash strikes and return it once things have cooled down.
