If you’re anything like me, scarves fall into the category of, “I love them, I want them, but I’d rather buy about 100 other things first!”
Am I right, or am I right?!
Scarves are easily one of the most practical and transformative accessories in our closets, yet why are we always so hesitant to pull the trigger when it comes to scoring that scarf of our dreams? From wool plaid to plush cashmere, winter scarves are going to be the centerpiece of your winter outerwear, so do me a favor, ok!?
Let’s ditch those thin, dinky, polyester poor excuses for a scarf and let’s get down to real scarf business!
Late last week, I took a quick trip to my local craft store and spent a total of $4 on what I think is going to be one of my favorite accessories of this summer and most definitely, the fall. $4 is not going to buy you much nowadays (especially when it comes to fashion), but not only did I walk away with one accessory — I bought 4!!!! Yes, 4. What can I say, I can’t help myself.
So what did I buy!?
A bandana. Actually, 4 bandanas.
No, I’m not planning on costuming a small production of Butch and The Sundance Kid. I’m preparing for what is the easily the easiest (and cheapest) way to add some interest to your outfit. All the cool kids are doing it… and this is a good kind of peer pressure I can get behind. Whether it’s tied as a headband, a neck scarf or even a cool wrist accessory, bandanas have definitely made my own personal “IT List.”
Just take a look at some of the images below and no doubt, the bandana will make YOUR “IT list,” too!
Scarves have been making a statement season-after-season, but I love how a basic bandana is a little bit 70’s, a little bit rocker and a whole lot of unexpected. Did I mention I bought 4 for $4? #NoExcuses
