Ring Around the Collar

Whether it’s haikus over novels, Minis over Hummers, or circumcised over un, you’ve never been one to revel in excess.

So you’ll appreciate Scarflettes, abbreviated versions of the season’s ubiquitous scarf.

The toasty choker-like collars spring from the mind of a former milliner who wanted a way to keep her neck warm without the bulk. In fabrics like silk wool, cashmere, and lambskin, they’re made mostly to order with lots of painstaking handwork.

The tartan ruffle preppies up a plain sweater. The slouchy cowl neck is art-school chic. Simple cashmere numbers are all class. And we could go on for days about the leather version with a dangling lariat.

But we’re totally cut off.
