A Neon Experiment: the Loop Scarf


IMG 3271

Is that how you call them in English?
I personally never noticed these awesome scarf variations until I came to Japan – and here they are called snood. 

Anyway, the whole story behind this neon experiment is that I didn’t think it was as cold outside as it actually was. So while out, I had no other choice but look for something that would keep me a little warmer.
So, I looked around a few shops, but nothing really crossed my eye, until I went into RAGTAG, a big resale shop, and there it was: this Kate Spade Loop Scarf in neon-yellow & grey. From this season too, they still have the series’ knit beanie in stock!
And somehow, even though I never was a big fan of neither yellow nor neon colors (expect for the gym maybe), it was exactly the item I had looked for – unconsciously. Bold in color and super warm and comfortable.

寒くて寒くて、寒さに負けた。 先週の休日にお出かけした時、すぐにマフラー探しになった。 キャットストリート沿いに色んなお店に入ったけど、好きなもの見つけれず・・・
今シーズンのケイト スペードのスヌードが目に入った。

    Love the outfit and i am definitely feeling the neon scarf! It adds a nice pop of color, and the gradient finish helps keep it in check and not overpower the rest of the outfit. I want it all!

    It’s so interesting, I love the gradient idea. Neon yellow is also a color I would never wear… unless I was jogging in the dark or something… But I like the scarf! I call them infinity scarves in English, but I think snood is also used.

      Thank you so much!! I really searched all the corners of the internet, but I couldn’t find a word on how to call these scarfs! Infinity Scarf sounds a little cooler than loop or snood haha~
      & I totally felt the same, yet for this scarf it’s somehow working! The little discoveries of jumping over one’s preferences 😉
