Bloomingdale's told customers to "make sure they are seen in this lavish new accessory".
A "snood" is a cross between a hood and a scarf, and when worn properly resembles a babushka!
The snood dates back to the 1940's when women wore them to keep their long hair out of the way. In the 50's they showed up on the ski slopes, and most recently they appeared on the fall runway in plaids, fur, and colorful prints. Wrap your circle scarf around your neck a few times and throw the rest up over your head!
Just another fun, chic way to keep warm this winter!
Here are a few additional places to find infinity scarves or Snoods!
