Bold colors were already a most in our wardrobes this season, but bandanas need to be one as well. A very 50’s and 60’s vibe has been reappearing lately in the latest collections, specially when talking about this Spring and Summer. But what is it exactly what we need to know?
When trying to style this trends you have to keep a few things in mind, but one thing is for sure ask yourself: what would have my grandma wore? Not many have or had always a good relationship with their grandmothers but just like Audrey Hepburn they actually lived when this trends were the latest fashion, so in fact they are also fashion icons now. Don’t think about what she wears now, but what her closet was all about then. Ask her or look for pictures and you’ll immediately get that vibe you are trying to recreate. If not you’ll do just fine with stalking Audrey, Bardot and many others on pinterest boards. They key is to do your research and then mix it up with your style.
What do the 50’s and 60’s have to do with this Spring/Summer season? Well almost everything. Trends have their way of making a comeback and now everything I see is from that period. From small bags, fedoras, big glasses and long pearls to bandanas. And bandanas is what this blog is about.
Wearing bandanas or scarfs was at that time a true art, and it still is quite a challenge. It represented class and feminism, with a hint of sass and youth. It wasn’t just to maintain a healthy hair on the beach over the summer or to go to church, but an iconic accessory that in my opinion every woman should learn how to wear.
Don’t believe me? Here is a bit of inspiration from one of my pinterest boards
This season is your time to start trying it out. There are a million choices, colors and styles. You can wear it covering your hair, as a headband, bow or even around your ponytail. Suitable for a lot of occasions and locations. All you need is your grandma’s closet, a vintage shop or even stores like ZARA, MANGO and Urban Outfitters have a lot of options.
What I wore:
Sandals: Nine West
Denim Jacket: Vintage
