Fur is so chic. Whether it’s faux or real, fur has a way of taking an outfit to the next level. During the holidays, when the weather outside if frightful, and we need a little more warmth, it’s the perfect time to accessorize with fur.
I love this look by Wendy Nguyen. She adds elegance to a basic black dress with a fur snood. When she slips on her coat, she simply pulls out the snood, so it covers her collar, and it gives her coat a completely chic look.
Okay, I know a lot of your are wondering what a snood is. According to accessories expert, Bridgette Raes, snood has several meanings. “In terms of fashion trends, a snood is basically a tubular scarf, like a large cowl. It differs from an infinity scarf in that it sits higher on the neck and can often act like a hood, whereas an infinity scarf is more of a looped scarf that can sit around the neck.”
Ha…I knew you had been dying to know that.
Anyway, back to fur.
Take a look at the way fur can add some sophistication to your winter style.
Simply drape a fur piece over any jacket. You can secure with pins. It can completely change the look of a coat.
Or add a fur collar to an ordinary top, to make it special..
Whether you call it a snood, a cowl, or an infinity scarf, adding a little fur can be totally fabulous.
*Snood technically has another definition: Historically (and in some cultures still today) a snood was a small bag of fine thread—netted, tatted, knitted, crocheted, or knotted— enclosing a bob of long hair, holding it close to the neck.
So happy we got that all straightened out.
