Infinity or circle?



OK, I saw these at the accessory show last Spring and...
I thought they were the dumbest thing I had ever seen. 
It reminded me of the kids that had the Velcro shoes because they couldn't or wouldn't tie their shoes. Are these for people that can't be bothered to tie a scarf?

Now I see them all over the place! 
The scarves shown above are from Bloomingdales. I hope I don't break down and start carrying them. Most retailers call them Infinity scarves or Circle Scarves.
I call them Lazy Loops.

I agree I like my scarf up around my neck to keep it warm.

This might actually help me - I always feel like I can't gt my scarf just right! But then again - with the Loopy kind I'd probably end up getting caught on something-LOL!

I need my scarf to be wrapped around my neck...it is way to cold here to have something silly like that!

Very odd. If you wore them with a coat would they be on the outside or inside where you couldn't see it?

Susan said...

don't like them either!
I've actually purchased a few scarfs and I hope I wear them...my usual move is I buy, and they are NEVER worn...sit in my closet!
Good luck today...........

I like the look of them, but they definitely don't have the utility of normal scarves (IE they keep you warm)

Plus they feel a little bit like "forced layering" shirts, you know, sweaters with a cotton collar so it looks like you've got two shirts on when you don't, but the scarf version. All in all, just not right.

I don't get out much. This is the first time I have seen these!

Sadly, they are perfect for the menopausal momma that is freezing one minute and has to rip off clothing quickly the next.

Maybe I need to invest in a dozen or so ;)

They are cute! I'll have to keep an eye out for them. xoxo

I'm not sure if I have seen these either. Anyway, I think the top one looks cute. Have a great weekend!
