Fug or fab: Snood, half-scarf, half-hood



What do we think about this, friends?


It's called a snood, and the Wall Street Journal discusses its place in the trend spectrum this Christmas. When I first saw the word "snood," I thought they were talking about this game that I used to play obsessively on the computer (PROCEED TO LINK AT OWN RISK and OMG I just noticed I can download it for my iPhone! Life = over). Anyway, a snood in this capacity is actually a scarf-hood hybrid.

My first instinct? It looks like something my Polish ancestors wore on the docks. My mother has regaled me with stories of her youth spent wearing babushkas in Ohio, and it ain't pretty.

My second instinct? There are certain days of the week where this would kind of be awesome. Think about it. Your hair is a hot mess. Your face is broken out. You had too much wine last night and you generally feel like hiding from the world while you run into Publix for toilet paper. This could be a fierce solution to all the world's problems!

They're on the shelves affordably at Zara and H&M this season. What say you, style legions? Fug or fab?
