It’s still cold outside, and you need something to keep your neck warm. Scarves can be and often are shit. They are too short too long, too clumpy too thin. It’s near impossible to find a perfect one. The ‘must have’ accessory from the catwalks for the winter weather was the snood. Mostly because of the Burberry one. I am seriously considering saving up for one (as fakes are very hard to find and I’ve always fancied a bit of cashmere around my neck), but I need to regain employment first. The Burberry check hasn’t been this good before. Christopher Baily took Burberry away from the market fakes and back into the heart of Englishness. How he did it is beyond me. I wouldn’t say there has been a huge change in direction, but little things here and there, using campaigns to appeal to the youth but not ostracize the traditional consumer was a stroke of genuis. Anyway, enough with my slight obcession.

Snood By Burberry £195

The high street isn’t full of them, but it doesn’t matter, because the cable knit snood that Topman offer is fantastic. Topman in 99% shit and 1% genius. This falls into the 1% catorgory. It’s my favorite high street purchase of the last few months. The great thing with the circle scarf/snood is that it can be worn

  • draped
  • as a hood
  • wrapped twice tight

Snood By Topman £16

American Apparel has been pushing them as their accessory of choice. Comes in the standard AmApp 100’s of colours, a tie dye version (not in anymore) or their classic hipster acid wash. They are unisex and veer to a more feminine oversize shape than the Topman one, and are a lot more expensive, but all the same they’re pretty nice.

Circular Scarf by American Apparel £27

Just steer clear from ones with tassles or you’ll look you’re wearing a Palestine scarf. Not a big look.
