For the woman with a well-stocked wardrobe few if any additions are required for a transatlantic crossing or for a cruise … She will need a scarf or scarfs to keep treacherous winds from blowing down her neck. If her budget is limited it is an excellent plan to have few frocks and several hats and scarfs which vary the appearance of her outfits.

The New Etiquette: The Modern Code of Social Behavior
Margery Wilson, 1937

Alas, all my transatlantic crossings have been made by airplane. But a selection of hats and scarves to vary the appearance of my outfits still has tremendous appeal (as does the thought of something warm and soft to keep treacherous winds from blowing down my neck). This piece, somewhere between a scarf and a cowl, should do the trick nicely. The arrangement of buttons and the lacy nature of the fabric let you fasten it in a tremendous variety of ways. Experiment and find your favorite.
