Bandana Love

Bandanas are back baby! From Khloe Kardashian to It Girls, the 90’s trend is the ultimate hair, neck or wrist accessory. As any 90’s baby will know, bandanas were once a wardrobe staple. And it seems the statement accessory is making a comeback. Celebrities are jumping on board, together with a swag of fashion bloggers, prompting a resurgence of the trend. Here are some suggestions on how to wear your bandana accessory.

Use it as a bag charm: similar to a twilly, use the same method to fold your bandana as above and tie this around the handle of a tote, or dangling on the side of a smaller satchel style bag. It adds a nice twist and is a great way to breathe new life into a much loved bag in dire need of an update.

Wear as a neck tie: undoubtedly the most obvious choice, and my fav way to wear it. Simply fold up the bandana into a thin long strip, and knot it loosely at the nape of the neck, leaving the tails to rest on your clavicle. If you want something looking a little less “done”, try twisting the fabric before you tie it. Another option is to tie it around twice for a choker effect, or simply fold the fabric in half to get the triangular “kerchief” which rests on your chest.

Tie it around your wrist: admittedly, this can get a little bulky, but I think that a bandana looks great wrapped around your wrist, peeking out from behind the cuff of a crisp white shirt.

Headband love: the final way to wear your bandana is as a headband. It’s the perfect way to make a messy updo look like you’ve actually made a little bit of effort.
