Snood-y Girl?

The "snood" is all the rage this chilly season. What's a snood, you ask? It's a hybrid piece: scarf + hood = snood. The Wall Street Journal reported this past weekend that the snood may just be the single piece to save Christmas (shopping) this year:

The snood is really easy and fun to wear. Wear it up over your head or wear it down scrunched around your neck--either way, it will keep you warm and give you an updated look this season. They tend to look best in soft knits in a neutral palate. The idea is cozy-chic, so make sure the rest of your outfit compliments the snood. You can pair it with a day dress and flat riding boots or with vintage jeans, a long tunic and booties. Adding a pair of dark shades or slim aviators is a great finishing touch.

It's a fun little number to flaunt, but no need to be snood-y.
