Why You Should Try the Bandana Trend

July 27, 2016

Let’s get to business. I have to tell you why you should try the bandana trend. I held out for a while thinking I couldn’t pull this trend off. In summer, I tend to accidentally drift toward brighter looks and away from my neutral favorites. Somehow brights end up feeling less edgy. I loved this striped off the shoulder dressΒ (under $20!!) when I got it in the mail. I mean, so fun right?! I knew I didn’t want to add girly accessories though. Pairing my dress with a bandana added instant edge for under $5! I actually bought this in Wal-Mart for $2. They are available so many places and in all different colors. You can pair them with tees, tanks, button-up shirts – whatever! Round sunnies and other black accessories round out the look.

    that dress is the cutest, I get annoyed easily so not sure I can do the bandana, the choker is hard enough.

    Very cute dress!! I tend to lean towards bright clothing for the summer too. I got a head scarf that could work for a neck bandana. Might go and give that a try!
