There are several terms for this winter accessory – buff, gaiter, neckwarmer – but we prefer snood. We’re talking about those thick, oversized, cylindrical scarf-replacements that sit around a wearer’s neck. They’re as versatile as they are warm: some are big enough to pull over the wearer’s head or above the nose, mimicking hoodies and masks. It's an ideal piece to cocoon into in when sub-zero temps trigger hibernating instincts.
The days of removing gloves to answer smartphones are solidly behind us; no longer do protected hands need to be sacrificed to answer a call or respond to a text!

Boot cuffs create the cozy look of a tall, knit sock without adding a bulky layer to stuff into your shoes. As a bonus, it prevents any uncomfortable chafing between boots and legs or ankles! Originally catering to a feminine style, this fun winter accessory is now available in masculine and unisex styles as well.

This simple, draped style reads as chic and comfy – an ideal blend for the upcoming change in seasons.
