8 Fun Ways to Wear a Bandana This Summer
No longer reserved for your festival-goer niece, the simple cotton handkerchief has made a big comeback this summer as the accessory du jour. And why not? It’s effortlessly chic, gives us all the Americana vibes and costs less than a dollar. Not sure how to work it into your wardrobe? Here, eight fun and stylish ways to wear the accessory of the season.
Around Your Neck
Tie a double knot at the front for an easy upgrade to your button-downs and T-shirts.
Around Your Wrist
Think of your bandana as a piece of jewelry and don accordingly. (Plus, it’s a far better substitute for clunky metal when temps are scorching.)
On Your Bag
Breathe new life into your winter satchel with this easy little summer upgrade.
In Your Bun
Weave into your banana bun and secure with a single loose knot for low-effort beach days.
Around Your Ponytail
Fun tip: Turn the knot so it’s facing the back of your head (to keep you from cheerleader-bow territory).
Around Your Head
Or use a kerchief as a headband to tame pesky flyaways (and hide that third-day-of-not-washing-your-hair grease).
Around Your Ankle
A low-key yet fashion-forward way to rock the trend: Tie it like an anklet and pair with your favorite cropped denim. (Permission granted to take as many ankle selfies as your heart desires.)
In Your Pocket
Does it remind of us of fashion grandpas? Most definitely. Does that make us want to try it out even more? One hundred percent.
