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 dress (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.

    Yes, bandanas are all the rage – I picked up five and have begun wearing them. I’ve been getting odd looks.
