Colder weather always inspires us to buy new knit hats and scarves for ourselves, and now that we've discovered New York-based Cabbages & Kings, we're going to do the same for our little ones! The brand, which former model and mom Alexandra Gizela launched last year, focuses on just a few items — scarves (infinity and hooded), leg warmers, and socks — and does them incredibly well. The hand-knit alpaca pieces are all made by Peruvian artisans who live in the Andean Valleys, 11,000 feet above sea level, and fit kids 0-14 years old. All the items feature fun patterns, textures, and colors that feel as great as they look. Check out Cabbages & Kings' gorgeous knit pieces now (and be inspired by the incredible styling!).
The piece: Marc by Marc Jacobs Plaid Scarf
The price: $178

Get ready to pair this with everything from a waxed overcoat to a sleek leather jacket — you've just found your perfect Fall scarf.
