Made famous by an appearance on Oprah, the Nomad Scarf by Fluxus is tantalizingly soft and long enough to wear wrapped around the neck and over the head. It is the perfect item for chilly summer winds or for a cookout on the beach. Finding one can seem a little difficult, as most department stores do not carry them. Luckily, a host of online retailers have them in stock, ready and waiting for you to snatch one or more up.
The massive online retailer has plenty of colors from which to choose as well as customer reviews that will give you a better sense of what you are buying. Because the scarf is not found in department stores, the customer reviews become very important as they replace the touching and handling you would normally use to determine whether or not you want to buy the item.
Of course, the actual website of the scarf has options, although not as many as Amazon and no customer reviews. The upside of using their website is that you get to see all the other fantastic scarves and accessories they sell, along with their clothing line. The pictures they provide also give you ideas on how to wear the scarf for both day and night.
Polyvore.com is a website that gathers information from online retailers or boutiques and combines it in one place for your easy browsing pleasure. It is the best place to view one item and compare prices, looks and colors. Shopstyle.com is another of these collective shopping sites and works just as well. In order to buy the item you have to click on the picture and then click on the link to the actual website that sells the item, as Polyvore and Shopstyle are just hosts.
