This in for fall — snoods are hot! And they are the best way to keep warm! So, what exactly is a snood? Snoods are loose circle shawls that keep your neck and head nice and toasty on cold, winter days. Basically a snood is an infinity scarf that has extra area to cover your head. A snood is versatile, allowing you to wear it over your head or to simply wear it as a scarf. And it’s the perfect addition to a cold-day, layered look in the city. This trend, dating clear back to the Middle Ages, and making another debut in the 1940’s, is a modern trend that is popping up in cold areas all over the country. Here are some snoods that are sure to keep you warm, fashionable and chic during the cold winter months ahead.
