Scarf? Hood? Who Cares! These Ain't Your Lunchlady's Snoods

When we first heard the word snood, we thought it was some poor marketer's attempt to combine snuggly-scarf-hoods, and would join shacket, slanket, and skort in fashion's awkward S-word lexicon. It turns out that snoods have been around since the Middle Ages (think bun covers), and have staged a stylish comeback from their hair-netted past. Loose circle shawls, awesome knit headgear, scarves with real hoods attached--they're all modern-day, right-now snoods, and are our new favorite way to keep our necks (and heads!) warm.
