Snoods have become a popular accessory in recent years. Not only do they provide warmth and comfort, but they also add a stylish touch to any outfit. However, if you've never worn a snood before, you may be wondering how to wear it properly. In this blog, we will take you through everything you need to know about wearing a snood - from understanding the snood itself to styling tips and caring for your snood.

What is a snood?

Before we dive into the process of wearing a snood, let's start by understanding what a snood actually is. The snood is a circular scarf or tube-like accessory that is worn around the neck or head. It can be made from various materials such as wool, cotton, or even synthetic fibers. Snoods come in different lengths, widths, and designs, making them versatile and suitable for various occasions.


When it comes to sports apparel, the snood holds a special place. It not only provides warmth and protection from the cold but also adds a touch of style to any outfit. The snood has become a staple in many wardrobes, loved by athletes and trendsetters alike.


How to wear a snood

Now that you've chosen the perfect snood, it's time to learn how to wear it. There are various methods you can try, so you should experiment to find the style that works best for you.


Traditional Method of Wearing a Snood

The traditional way to wear a snood is by draping it around your neck like a loose scarf. Simply place the snood around your neck, letting it hang naturally. You can adjust the length and tightness to achieve your desired look. This method is great for adding a touch of warmth and style to your outfit.

Modern Twists on Wearing a Snood

If you're feeling more adventurous, there are several modern twists on wearing a snood that you can try. One popular method is to wear it as a headband. Simply pull the snood over your head and let it rest on your forehead, allowing the rest of the fabric to drape around your neck. This style is not only trendy but also keeps your hair in place.


Another creative way to wear a snood is by turning it into a hood. This works particularly well with longer and wider snoods. Starting at the back of your head, pull the snood over your hair, covering your ears and forehead. Adjust the fabric to create a comfortable and stylish look.

Caring for Your Snood


Once you've learned how to wear and style your snood, it's important to know how to take care of it properly.


Cleaning and Storing Your Snood


The cleaning and storage instructions for your snood will depend on the material it is made of. The Veloforte Ultimo Snoods are made with 100% polyester microfibre and we advise machine-washing on a gentle cycle at 30 degrees with similar colours. 


Always refer to the specific care label provided by the manufacturer.


When storing your snood, fold it carefully and store it in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight to prevent fading.
