When the scarf and the hood decided to get together, get married and have a baby, the snood was born. With seriously bipolar weather among us (think spring degrees on winter days), deciding what to wear is a daily dilemma. Crisp mornings and evenings are matched by not so chilly afternoons, so selecting a heavy jacket can be too much, while going coat-free can leave us shaking in the breeze. Picking and choosing which winter accessories to utilize, and which to omit, allows for a perfect balance to satisfy these hybrid winter meets spring temperatures.
This Fashionista is soaking up the global warming winter by sticking to cool weather basics without overheating. Rocking her American Apparel tie-dyed circle scarf as a snood, the innovative, trendy new accessory, adds an element of style and warmth. Pairing her snood with a faux-fur Romeo & Juliet Couture black vest is a comfortable way to stay cozy and fashion-forward. Adding a longsleeve baby pink silk blouse from H&M adds a splash of color, while her Aqua liquid leggings spices up the outfit with a rich element. Finally, completing her ensemble with slouching black Steve Madden boots, a cargo-style army green backpack from Urban Outfitters and classic black Ray-Ban's finalizes this Fashionista's laid-back cool, attire.
Whether bright neon’s, pale pastels or classic neutrals, the snood has become not only fashionable, but practical as well. Coming in a variety of materials as well, think knits, cottons and fur, snoods add a fresh element to any winter outfit.
Spotted: Christian Dior, Hermes and Tommy Hilfiger, oh my! For the fall 2011 runways, designers called on the snood in a variety of shapes, sizes and hues. Whether sophisticated and luxurious to dress-up an outfit, or blanket-inspired for a down-to-earth look. the snood has become a designer's dream to make an outfit refreshed.
