This is the emerging fashion surprise on the streets of New York as the temperature drops. Worn by both men and women, and paired insouciantly with grungewear or almost any other dialect, its sprouts can't help force a smile onto the lips of the wearer and the beholder. I think it takes a bit of confidence, but I would remind you that life is too short to be sacrificed to needless fears. Go for it! Here is a fetching version spotted by the Baad Lamb in the Central Park bandshell.
I saw this brown one for sale among the discounts on West 27th Street.
And here, in the windows of Bergdorf's is the elegant version prescribed for the ladies who lunch.
