Consider the scarf like a diaper: Never leave home without it. A scarf not only adds a huge dose of style to any outfit, but it can also hide surprise public spit-up, wipe noses and be used as an impromptu nursing cover. A patterned wool scarf will weather a new mama’s day better than, say, a sheer, silk one.
