When the winter chills and winds come around, I’ll do just about anything to stay warm. Ear muffs, turtleneck, piles of scarves — I’ve tried it all. This winter, I have a new look to try which is actually a vintage throw-back. Missoni and Burberry pulled out an old trend for their fall 2009 runway show, in the form of the snood. What’s a snood you ask? Mix a scarf and hood, and there you go. It looks a bit silly upon first glance, but once you realize the warmth factor and protection from the cold, you’ll be a convert as well. Besides, it’s kind of a chic look, no?
Want to try the trend but aren’t ready to shell out designer prices? Head to H&M where they’re selling the snood in three different colors — cream, light green, and gray — for a very reasonable price of $5.95, or um, just make your own using an old scarf. [British Vogue]
