I’ve recently been inspired to try out this look after seeing it over the course of the last year and most especially after Coachella. This trend is definitely Western inspired and a throwback from the last century (bandanas gained popularity in the 70’s through the 90’s) I remember the time when I owned a drawer full of them and subsequently when I threw that drawer out. But as they say, what goes around comes back around, and this is truest in fashion.
There is just something about the bandana that I had to try again. However, this time around, we’re not rocking them on our heads (although who’s to say you shouldn’t), but more as a sophisticated neck accessory (or arm accessory). In the summer months, a bandana makes a great accessory to an otherwise simplistic t-shirt and jeans combo. I chose to wear a black skirt, white perforated top, fringe shoes and mirrored frames to mix it up. So go ahead, take a nod from the mid-west and relive your childhood bandana wearing days.
