Not Sexy: Nose Warmers

You know there are some pretty stupid things out there that pass as fashion, but nose warmers have to take the cake. The Nose Warmer could be called the Nose Sling, or the Nose Girdle, since it stays put by latching with straps around your ears like a protective mask. As stupid as it is, at least it's functional.

A company cleverly called The Nose Warmer Company is trying to make these this winters must have accessory. Now we understand that as the weather hit freezing, you need a little extra protection - but we hope to God we don't see nose warmers on every Basic Girl out there.

The company states: “Our business started small, with one nose warmer made specifically to do the job of warming up a nippy nose! Our owner soon realized that she wasn’t the only one with this problem so ….. THE NOSE WARMER COMPANY was born". It's available in all sorts of fabrics like fleece and faux fur, and patterns, animal prints and solid colors.

Well it appears Capitalism is in full force, delivering questionable solutions to life's problems. At least the models are cute. The Nose Warmer could be a good solution if your nose job didn't go as planned, or you have some sort of birth defect. The Nose Warmer Company is based in the United Kingdom, but will gladly ship to the United States for under $4. The most expensive Nose Warmer goes for about $9, which is about $8 too much.
