I’ve always believed that choosing versatile apparel is a way of consuming responsibly. By ensuring that clothing is versatile and adaptable to a range of situations, we not only meet our needs, but we maximize our clothes’ use to eliminate unnecessary expenses. A versatile wardrobe is both more economical and ecological!
Our multifunctional neck warmer is one of these fabulously versatile staples for your wardrobe! In this post, I’ll walk you through 8 ways to wear our neck warmer.
1. SIMPLE NECK WARMER
Our neck warmer can simply be worn as is. Its length of 19 ½ inches makes it tall enough to cover the coat zipper which always feels annoyingly cold under the chin! Our neck warmer is 9 inches wide, a loose enough fit so you don’t feel like you’re being strangled!

2. FOLDED NECK WARMER
Our neck warmer is long enough to be folded in half to double its thickness. Wearing the neck warmer this way better shields your neck from the cold. Once folded, the neck warmer becomes 9 ¾ inches tall.

3. FOLDED INTO A HEADBAND
By folding the neck warmer into three, you get a very thick headband that protects your ears from the wind and cold. Folded into three, the headband becomes about 6 ½ inches wide.
4. PLEATED HEADBAND
Instead of folding the neck warmer to wear it as a thick headband, you may just gather it loosely to wear it as a wider headband that covers more of your head.
5. A MASK FOR THE FACE
The length of our neck warmer is one of the reasons why it’s so practical. You can pull it up just enough to cover your nose and cheeks, or you could pull it up even higher…except you may not see much!

6. PROTECTION FOR YOUR HEAD
Guess what: our neck warmer is actually long enough to cover your head. This way, it protects not only your neck but your ears and your head! It's a great base layer to wear under your scarf and hat on extra frigid days. In short, you can wear it like a balaclava.

7. A MASK FOR THE FACE AND PROTECTION FOR THE HEAD
Basically combining the previous two options, you can pull the neck warmer over your head, then adjust the front of it to cover your face along with your neck.
Hi! I am the designer and founder of Clothes & Roads, I love tea, succulent plants, yoga, chocolate and baby animals.
Between designing new clothes for my brand, managing my social accounts, the production and the business finances, I like to share on the blog a diversity of subjects like slow fashion, travel, zero waste, local products, minimalism and vanlife! 🚐
Being zero waste in the fashion industry is hard. It requires brands to rethink their production processes, to choose sustainably sourced materials and to make choices within the limits of our geographical and industry resources. It’s not mission impossible, but it sure does pose many challenges. Not only do the items need to be packaged eco-consciously, either for merchandizing, shipping or retail, but the cutting and production process itself is a huge challenge.
How does your wardrobe make you feel? Is it cluttered and overwhelming? Do you find yourself uninspired by your clothes or mentally exhausted when trying to decide what to pack? If this sounds like you, then a capsule wardrobe may help simplify your life! In this post, I walk you through the concept of a capsule wardrobe and its many benefits.
The clothes we choose to wear are a form of self-expression and a source of comfort as we go about our daily routine and milestone moments in our lives. But what if we could do more with our wardrobe—for the planet and for our communities—simply by being intentional in our choices
