The Snood: Hip or Hideous?

Willow has declared the snood to be the hot trend of the moment -- and no, I'm not talking about an old-fashioned hairnet --

I'm talking about the tubular scarf our friend Willow Smith is wearing! Snoods are infinitely simple, because they have no loose ends -- you just put it over your head and go. has spotted Ashley Olsen in a fur snood, prompting them to call it "the season's perfect piece."


Sort of a boring fashion season, isn't it?

Anyway, I'd love to know what you think about the snood. Would you wear one, or will you stick with scarves?

Check out a few options that are in stores and online now ... after the jump! suggests this gray fox fur snood (Farfetch, $425) as an option. But I have a feeling we can find something a little more affordable ...


TopShopI like this angora cable snood (Topshop, $56), which would give you a nice burst of color over a black coat.


ASOSDitto on this loose rib knitted snood (Asos, $21.49), which is a very nice price!


Lands' End CanvasLands' End Canvas has this jaunty striped snood (Lands' End Canvas, $9.99) at a great price right now. It was originally $49.99!


ASOSPrefer fur? How about this faux option (ASOS, $26.86)?

What do you think of snoods? Is it really the season's perfect piece?

That poor kid looks JUST like her dad, right down to her big ears.

I saw a cute guy pictured on Lookbook, who simply took one of his long sleeve tee and wrap around like a snood. Cheaper and more versatile, I think.

Hasn't this been popular for a while? When I see or hear snood I think of the game I used to play!

It's been around for a while under the name 'infinity scarf.' And now it's back as the snood! Isn't fashion clever?  ;)

Infinity scarf is a far better name than snood!

I like it if it is knitted, not faux fur.

Don't infinity scarves have a half-twist in them, like a Mobius strip?  (Excuse me, I'm a math geek.)  I think the snoods don't have this twist, so they are a little different.

The snoods are fine if they are moderately sized.  If they're too big or fluffy, I think they overwhelm the person wearing them.


I think about the game.

I like the orange one a lot and would love to wear one myself, but it's 70 degrees at 8 am in Houston today so . . . we don't get many chances to wear a snood.

Whats the difference between a snood and a scarf it looks the same to me?
