Wearing Your Silk Scarf Snood-Style

May 7, 2011

  Snoods currently have a varied reputation. To many, they are simply a means of keeping their head and neck warm. To the International FA are objectionable. They are not “macho.” They may lead to less masculine things such as those who play football wearing skirts! According to Manchester United boss Alex Ferguson, “Real men don’t wear snoods.”  Yet, some support the practice. The manager of Arsenal, Arsene Wenger, cited his medical team suggestion his players wear them.

The football-type snood differs somewhat from others worn by celebrities and others strolling the streets. The football variety appear to be a more of a rolled down turtle neck. Unlike the “true” snood, this version is shorter and consists of less fabric. This prevents them covering the head and neck. Moreover, footballer snoods hardly make as classy a fashion statement.

The basic and most popular ways to wear snood is as follows:

  • loosely hanging around the neck creating fold in the front
  • tucked somewhat snugly against the neck
  • arranged over the head to cover it and the neck in such a way as to appear like a hood

You can purchase in stores ones capable of letting you adopt one of these styles.

However, if you purchase a silk scarf you not only can fashion your own snood but wear it in any fashion that pleases you.  This is possible because, essentially, a snood is only a tube of fabric. You merely tie the long silk scarf at its ends to produce a snood effect. The fineness of this material also means you never have to see the knots.

To fashion either style one or two previously mentioned, merely envelop your neck in the silk scarf, wrapping it several times around your neck being sure it hangs over your chest leaving your throat uncovered. Alternatively, wrap it so rests sits comfortably against the front of your throat.  Upon reaching them, knot off the ends of the fabric. You can place the ties where they are not seen.

If you would rather cover your neck and head, simply position the middle of the fabric over the top of your head. Place the fabric to cover each ear.

Intersect the scarf at the front of your throat then proceed to envelop the rest of the material about your throat. Be sure to cross it at both the front and the back. Continue until you have used up all the fabric. Finally, knot off the remaining ends. You now have a snood that is not only elegant and silky but will also keep you comfy and warm.
