To a classic car fan, “ragtop” means convertible, and conjures up “wind-in-your-hair” and “sun-on-your-face” feelings of freedom and adventure. Wear this blissfully soft shawl several ways … as an open-front wrap, as a poncho secured at your shoulder, or as a chunky scarf wrapped snugly around your neck … and be prepared for wherever your journey takes you!
