Hi friends! I’m so excited about this blog post because it is such an EASY, AFFORDABLE (under $15) trend. Can I get an amen?! I first saw the bandana trend a few months ago when I was in Madewell and saw a bandana being tied around their transport tote. I immediately snapped a pic and said to myself “wow, what an easy way to step up your purse game.” Of course, I can’t completely credit the idea to Madewell- my grandmother gave me a Philadelphia Eagles silk bandana in December 2017 to wear around my neck like she did “back in the day.” I always thought it was the cutest idea- I’ve attached a picture below.
Now, here I am telling you how much I love this easy trend! I already described the first two ways to style the bandana so let’s get to it:
#1- Wearing the Bandana
It’s as easy as it looks, PROMISE. I folded the bandana in half, and tied it loosely around the side of my neck. VOILA. That’s it. I especially love this marigold colored bandana because it matches with so many different color schemes and especially attracts this denim top. My second favorite colored bandana would have to be the bright red – they are beautiful and make a statement!
#2- On your Bag
Y’all I just love this look. Do you see what I mean? The bandana makes the statement for me! I simply tied the bandana as low as I could on my tote strap handle and it looks just like this. Chances are, if you’ve seen me lately- you’ve seen this bandana too! haha.
#3- In your Hair
Alright y’all, I’m going to be 100% honest with you. I could not figure out how to tie the dang bandana in my hair. To be fair, I only tried for about five minutes before giving up. I’ve seen it done before and it’s quite beautiful- but in case you haven’t noticed- I wear my hair the same way every single day for a reason! I’m saying this to you for two reasons: 1. I’m being 100% authentic in that I really don’t know how to style hair besides the curls you see every day and 2. if you are a hair genius (I’m slightly jealous) then you can absolutely pull off this look. My suggestion would be to put your hair in a ponytail holder and then tie the bandana around it or tie it around a bun on top of your head. If that doesn’t work and you really like the style, I would opt for this. It basically has the bandana tied around a ponytail holder for you already * shakes head side to side*
REGARDLESS, if the top two styles didn’t already sell you on this fun trend item, then I don’t know what will! I’ve already had so much fun with the one I own that I got one for my mom and she is LOVING it as well- talk about an easy item to gift!
I hope you enjoyed this trend report- one thing is for sure- I am here for the bandana trend!
