Winter is cold for unadorned necks. I’m always looking for new ways to keep warm while being fashionable, and I found my latest accessory obsession on Etsy: the necklush. The name alone enticed me, and when I perused the website, I was sold. The thick scarf is made from loops of cotton fabric and comes in a variety of colors. I went with a neutral gray, so I could wear it with most outfits. You wrap it around your neck a few times, like a long, luscious necklace, and voila! A unique scarf that keeps your neck warm and trendy.
In fact, when a co-worker told me she spotted a woman on the T with a necklush, I felt like a trendsetter. More likely, the trend was already well under way, but whatever.
And a follow up I just stumbled upon, also on Etsy, is equivalent neckerchief for dogs, because every dog wants a cozy neck. Well, maybe not St. Bernards and other shaggy types, but little shivery dogs need help staying warm—and looking cool when trying to measure up to a muscular greyhound or those adorable Yorkies. And now, they can buy their own knit neck attire at the click of a paw.
