my neck is always cold. this is a great addition and goes with anything i have on from tee shirt and jeans to a dress or suit. it works summer or winter because there is often a draft when air conditioning is on or heater is off. it can encircle neck if cold and draped over shoulder loosely when i get warmer.the best thing about it is it looks great and can easily pushed aside and not lost because it is in a single circle. as a resut of the circle i cannot lose it in the street as i move throughout my day.
