Snood. Infinity scarf. Circle scarf. Whatever you call it, I’m completely obsessed with it. Why? I’m not exactly sure! It’s not like tying a scarf is particularly challenging, but there’s something strangely comforting about simply not needing to put in the effort. Double knot? Loop? Double loop? Twist? Pretzel? Turtle neck? Euro knot? ENOUGH IS ENOUGH. With a circle scarf, the direction and style has already been pre-decided. You just pop it on, scrunch it up, and go.
The particular circle scarf I’m pining over is for sale right now on ShopMieux.com! It’s a wool and acrylic number by Madison 88 that originally retailed for $49. Other sites have it on sale online for $29. Mieux & Mieux is selling it for $11! Aside from the totally alluring price tag and my soft spot for circular neckwear, I’m also loving the color, print, and pattern of this piece. For the most part (save for a good cheetah print), I gravitate towards neutral accessories, so the washed-out, vintage hues of this scarf are instantly appealing. And, even though the colors are toned down, the piece still makes an impact by mixing two bold–and perennially popular–prints: dots and florals. What results is the perfect combination of trendy and timeless…The ultimate infinity scarf.
