This in for fall — snoods are hot! And they are the best way to keep warm! So, what exactly is a snood? Snoods are loose circle shawls that keep your neck and head nice and toasty on cold, winter days. Basically a snood is an infinity scarf that has extra area to cover your head. A snood is versatile, allowing you to wear it over your head or to simply wear it as a scarf. And it’s the perfect addition to a cold-day, layered look in the city. This trend, dating clear back to the Middle Ages, and making another debut in the 1940’s, is a modern trend that is popping up in cold areas all over the country. Here are some snoods that are sure to keep you warm, fashionable and chic during the cold winter months ahead.

This just in — stacking bracelets is a hot way to accessorize your outfits this fall! Many models and fashion bloggers have been spotted donning this trend by decorating their arms with their favorite bangles, beads and chains. Some like to throw an arm party on one arm, but we love it best when both arms are decorated to perfection.
So, go ahead and throw a party on your arms by mixing and matching your favorite bracelets to create an eye-popping fall accessory statement. Look for bangles, beaded elastic bracelets, chains and vintage-style clasp bracelets this season. And if you want to get really crazy; throw a watch in there to get the party started!Now, for a challenge:

Q: Hi Velvet! What are some of your favorite accessories to wear in the summer?Â Talia P. from Bethlehem, Pennsylvania
A: During the summer, we love seeing a vibrant mix of beach-inspired accessories even if you’re not at the beach! You can find many beach-inspired accessories from earrings, to bracelets, to rings and necklaces. When looking for the perfect beach accessory, look for it in white, cream, turquoise and gold. We also love hints of red in a beach-inspired jewelry piece that looks like bits of coral. These colors scream beach-wear and have a tendency to match beautifully with a flowy-white summer outfit. Look for your beach-inspired accessories with mini-starfish, pearlescent beads, small sand dollars, little sea horses and plenty of turquoise chips.
