The iconic bandana has been around for a very long time, with the word ‘bandannoes’ (referring to cotton handkerchiefs) estimated to have been used in the 18th century. In the 50s, it was often knotted into an updo Rosie the Riveter style; in the 70s, a bandana worn around the head was a clear sign of rockstar culture and ultimate coolness. Nowadays, we’ve all noticed the bandana bouncing back. In particular, this idea of a bandana tied around the neck to resemble a choker has been prominent.
If you’re looking to purchase one, I would definitely recommend the Australian site, Princess Polly. These two will only set you back $15AUD each:
For something a little different, I am in awe of the gorgeous print choker from ASOS, which can be found here.
And so, dear readers, what do you think of this trend? How would you style a bandana around your neck? Let me know in the comments. ★
