The first thought that pops into your head when you hear the word bandana might be that they belong on your elderly grandmother or perhaps wrapped around the head of a pirate, but we have reason to believe bandanas can be stylish once again, the proof comes in the form of Natalie Joos, a fashion trendsetter followed by all the major fashion blogs and who we trust knows a thing or two about fashion. No longer are bandanas reserved to wear as a kerchief upon your head while cleaning the house or used merely as a rag, now bandanas can be a chic accessory to add to any outfit! We found two cool ways to wear this timeless headgear, find out how below.
1. Throwback to the 1950′s
Natalie Joos has been seen wearing bandanas all over town, like when she paired a 1950’s silhouette dress and classic cat eyeglasses with a bandana to top off the outfit. Natalie’s outfit proves that bandanas are certainly not out of style and we suggest taking a cue from Natalie and pairing a cute summer swing dress with a solid or printed bandana rolled up and tied around your head, make sure to tie your hair up first to get this look. Looking for the perfect bandana or scarf to achieve this style? Try this adorable Moschino Cheap & Chic headscarf.
2. Like A Kerchief
Once again, Natalie Joos chooses a bandana as a fashionable accessory when she paired a pretty pink printed dress with a printed bandana, however this time Natalie tied the bandana like a kerchief, hiding her hair and tying the bandana underneath. This look is perfect between hair washes and provides a way to look pulled together and chic. You can wear your hair up or down with this look so leave hair loose and tie the bandana underneath or tie your hair up into a ponytail or bun first. For a traditional bandana try this one from J Crew, it might be intended for men but we bet it would look super cute paired with some cut off jeans and a t shirt!
