The appearance of a scarf-snood in the wardrobe of modern fashionistas once again confirms the well-known assertion that everything new is a well-forgotten old. After all, a similar female accessory has already appeared in the wardrobe of many women before – in the late 80s of the last century, women of different ages wore a similar model, only then it had a different name and was known to fashionistas as a hat-pipe. Its rebirth and constantly growing popularity is explained by the fact that such an accessory combines several things at once – it can be a scarf, and a hat, and a hood, and a cape, and a scarf, and even a bolero. In addition, modern scarves – snoods compare favorably with their predecessors in their manufacturing options – they can be made of thick or thin yarn, knitted with a strict or romantic pattern, or even combine several patterns of different styles in one product at once.
But, unfortunately, there are still women who would not mind having such an ultra-fashionable accessory in their wardrobe, but simply do not know how it is recommended to wear it. This article will be devoted to this issue.
Ladies of mature age will surely remember that the hat-pipe, unlike the scarf – snood, was much less voluminous, which sharply limited the options for wearing it. Snood, due to its volume, can be worn like a regular scarf, which will perfectly warm the neck even in severe frosts. At the same time, you can use any hat suitable for the season as a headdress.
It is very important these days to wear a similar scarf as a hat, putting it on your head. With this wearing option, the back of it will look like a hood. As stylists say, with this option of wearing a snood as outerwear, it is advisable to choose a short fur coat or down jacket. From shoes to such a set, no less relevant now ugg boots are well suited, which will help complete your look. Such an ensemble is especially liked by young people who prefer a free style in clothes.
Mature women, of course, can also afford to add snood to their wardrobe. But at the same time, they are still better off using it as a stole or poncho thrown over the shoulders of a fur coat or coat. In this case, a scarf – snood will give them elegance, especially if it is combined with a small feminine hat.
Naturally, choosing for yourself a certain option for wearing a snood, you should focus on the time of year. In winter, it is advisable to keep warm in a snood scarf knitted from warm threads, such as wool or mohair. For the spring-autumn period, every woman’s wardrobe should have a snood made of lighter materials – acrylic, viscose, microfiber or cotton.
Not all women know that such an accessory can be worn not only with outerwear. A snood scarf, selected according to the season, may well complement your look and give it femininity even if you are wearing a sweater, cardigan, vest or pullover.
Of course, when wearing a scarf – snood, it is desirable that it harmonizes in color with other things in your ensemble and, moreover, matches the shade of your face and hair color. Although there are exceptions to this rule – young girls can easily afford to wear brightly colored snood. But this is permissible only in one case – when all the rest of your things are discreet. In general, it is advisable for every woman who keeps up with fashion to have several scarves in her wardrobe – snoods of different colors and different textures – this will allow her to choose a snood for any ensemble.
