Vivienne Westwood Says Wear a Towel, Save the Planet
Sometimes we think we'd be lost without clueless advice from celebrities. At a forum last month, designer Vivienne Westwood suggested that instead of buying a new coat, we should be eco-friendly and just wear a towel this winter. Apparently, it's “very chic.” That makes sense. A belted towel will definitely keep us warm.
She's also obviously misjudging the quality of our towels. We're embarrassed to dry off with some of them, let alone wear them in public. We've got some better eco-advice. Make do with last year's coat, or buy one from a vintage store. And only wear a towel outdoors if you're okay with looking crazy.
