In some parts of the world, a scarf is a mere fashion accessory that you toss around your neck when temperatures dip below 60 degrees. However, for those regions where snow, ice and sleet are part of everyday winter living, a cold-thwarting scarf is a necessary item to keep warm! So this is when style must meets function, and I've found the perfect combination: I've been eyeing these chunky, unique neck cowls by rosetung since last winter, but I hemmed and hawed too long until spring -- not this year though! I'm snatching up this Small Cloud Cowl ($50) to keep warm and toasty in these chilly months. They come in different sizes, and are made from 100% virgin wool for maximum heat retention.
