Hooded scarves are fashions strangest new accessory this winter – here's our favourites | The Sun
January 13, 2023
WE'RE as surprised as you are, but it's looking like the must have accessory this winter is a hooded scarf.
Combining a hat and a scarf, the cosy warmer slips on over your head and keeps your ears, head and neck insulated from the cold.
The hooded scarf, or balaclava has been quietly seeping into the fashion scene for the last few seasons, but only now has it really made its big leap in to the mainstream circuit.
Having said that, celebs have been wearing them for a while, and we mean A-Listers like Queen Bey (Beyoncé) herself and fashion's it-girl Gigi Hadid who was seen wearing a net version on the runway.
Despite being more widely accepted now, the balaclava has had its sticky moments over the past few years because of its association with anarchy, but with the feminine, fluffy designs that are available, that connotation couldn't feel farther away from what they represent now which is a fashion trend that conveniently keeps your entire head warm.

Made from responsible wool, this neutral balaclava from &Other Stories is a warm and easy stepping stone into this fashion trend if you're feeling a bit nervous.
The ribbed finish adds some texture which is what we think gives this one the edge but remember not to put this through the wash if you don't want it to shrink.
