I have a closet stocked with designer bags, cashmere sweaters and jeans that are way more expensive than they should be. But this year, the only item on my holiday wish list is the Canada Scarf from Acne Studios. Oh yeah, and I’ll take any color, especially if it’s gray. Seems silly, right? Let me explain.
As a fashion editor, I’m apparently hard to shop for. And I get it; I shop for a living, which means I accumulate more and more discerning tastes (and stronger opinions) as the days and weeks go on. So, when the holidays roll around, my family members tend to feel intimidated by the process of selecting a present for me, wondering what I think is “cool” at the time or whether I’ll find their gift “worthy.”
But here’s a short list of things I hate: Being cold, being cold on a plane and being cold in my office.
Winter in New York is tough for me, but I’ve discovered that a large, cushy scarf is able to solve all three of my aforementioned woes—or at least make them slightly more bearable.
