Already a staple in the wardrobes of joggers, cyclists, hikers and adventurers, the 'buff' (sometimes called a tube scarf, or a neck gaiter) can worn in a variety of ways. Our Fine Art Buffs come in one size and are perfect for men, women or kids. This version features Still Life with Lilacs by Lovis Corinth, a work of art in the DIA's collection.
Here are just some of the ways you can wear your buff:
Scarf – simply pull the tube scarf over your neck for an effortlessly cool look, which will also keep you warm.
Hood – This covers most of your head and is excellent for staying warm. Keep the front of the neck scarf under your chin, and pull the back up to cover your head.
Balaclava – start off with the hood, then take the material from just under your chin and double it up and pull up to cover your nose for added warmth or sun protection.
Face Mask – Start with the tube scarf on your neck, then pull it up to just below your eyes. This style is ideal to protect against dirt, dust, rain or cold. Double or triple up the fabric for more protection.
Neck Warmer – keep it around your neck but pull it up over your chin and the back of your neck. A great way to protect against wind burn when cycling.
Hair Band – begin with a scarf around your neck, then pull it up at the front to push back your hair. Works well with either long or short hair.
Hair Tie – Like a simple scrunchie, wrap the neck gaiter around your ponytail to hold your hair back.
Foulard – Start with the hairband, but open up the back of the neck warmer slightly. Create some fabulous hairdos with this style!
