A scarf used to be a time-consuming accessory, when they were tied around the neck, because it had to be wrapped around multiple times, which became a nuisance. Luckily, the latest trend in scarves is the snood, worn by both Fashionistas and Fashionistos. Forget the continual circular-wrap application of a typical scarf’s ends and, instead, slip on a snood.
A snood is essentially a scarf with no ends. This winter, oversized snoods are a staple in a fashionable man’s wardrobe. The snood is sometimes worn solely for the visual appeal, not for its upmost function: to keep the neck warm. This Fashionisto paired his navy snood with a brown canvas jacket, a royal blue trimmed white pullover sweater, a pair of blue jeans and a pair of white sneakers. His oversized snood was attention-grabbing and added a stylish grunge vibe to his nicely put-together outfit. In contrast, this additional accessory actually made his outfit emit an effortless-cool style.
There are multiple ways to wear this trend, since a snood is an accessory. Snoods come in a variety of different styles, sizes, patterns and colors. You can find a mixed colored cable knit snood from ASOS. Wear this Demobaza snood as a shawl to be a risk taker. Opt for an unconventional fabric–a fleece snood–from the online retailer 6pm, or go for a fair isle patterned knit snood by River Island. Tastes vary in scarves and snoods, which is why the variety of available options perfect tailors to the fashion-conscious man’s needs.
Hint: Don’t be afraid to wear your snood as a hood, in case you leave your hat at home on a freezing winter day.
