Spotted: Bandanas

The good ol’ Western bandana . . . its storied past and fixture in pop culture makes it one inexpensive and timeless accessory. As long time collectors of bandanas, old and new, we love how these super chic ladies (and men) styled them wrapped around the neck, tied up in the hair or swathed around the wrist. As much as we’ve devoted to the traditional paisley patterned squares, we’ve recently been digging these hand printed and hand sewn versions from Japan as of late.

    I love the classic look of wrapping them in hair, but with today’s fashion making them more modern means any girl can wear them and look great. Will definitely use a few of these for inspiration this spring.

    I think it really does take one cool girl to pull off the bandana.. The closest that I would ever get to wearing one is around my wrist or bag handle!

  9. I love this trend, I have yet to figure out how it works for me, though. I do love it in the hair. Maybe someday I’ll rock it.
