When you’re trying to look cute in nose-biting weather, you often have to get quite creative. Which is exactly what Kerry Washington did while hanging out in Park City, Utah for the 2011 Sundance Film Festival, where her upcoming independent film The Details premiered. The actress was spotted wearing a Yeojin Bae sweater, Calvin Klein jeans, Coach boots, and an interesting Express gray pom-pommed scarf/capelet during a portrait session for the film on Jan. 25, her crew confirmed on Twitter. It appears that the knit can be worn around the neck as a scarf, or pulled down over shoulders (like Kerry did here) as a capelet (try the look yourself with this find). We’re still trying to decide if this warming trend is cool or quirky. What do you think?
