Scarves To Go

What is one thing you never leave home without?

Whether your passport is colored with visas and stamps or you carry a Metro-North ten-trip ticket, your environment is always changing when you travel. I’ve always supported traveling light by packing fewer pieces that are multi-functional. That’s why seasoned travelers never leave home without a scarf. And no, scarves are not just for the winter.

One of the most versatile types of scarves is the scrunchable, washable Turkish pestemal or Tunisian fouta. They’re best known for their use as hammam towels, but they also keep you comfy, cozy, and a chameleon as you change surroundings.

Use one as a scarf to keep off the chill…
a towel for drying off…
a blanket for the plane…
a shade at the beach…
a tied-up sack for farmers’ market goods…
a cover-up after a swim…
a setting for a picnic…
