But I’m not sure whether this gorgeous woman can convince me to wear a snood.
Take a look at the Prada photographs for fall 2008 in any good magazine: Linda’s hair is wrapped in a snood in each image. From the Renaissance to the 1800s, snoods were practical; they kept a woman’s hair neat, tidy, and off her face, with very little effort.
Think Marmee from Louisa May Alcott’s Little Women. Or for a more glamorous visual, how about Juliet Capulet?
To me, the snood is simply too costume-y, too nostalgic to wear on the street. I’d feel old, antique, really, and I’d rather leave that vibe to my furniture.
So if you hear a “Knock! Knock!”
followed by “Snood’s there?”
Don’t open the door.
