Every now and then, we are lucky enough to experience the increasingly rare occurrence of an It-accessory that is actually affordable. Move over Céline bags and Chloé shoes, there’s a new guy in town—and some cost as little as $10 a pop. Introducing: the bandana.
Or, rather, re-introducing the bandana, since the accessory is far from being the new kid on the block (six year old me is ecstatic). It’s been a go-to for a long time in certain circles—motorcycle gangs, punk rockers, and rock n’ roll icons have long relied upon the classic printed handkerchief to add a dash of color and flavor to their wardrobes. And lest we forget, the bandana belongs originally to that great symbol of the American West—the cowboy.
I’ve finally succumbed to the bandana trend. I wasn’t totally against it, but I was a little intimidated by the western-inspired paisley print. Now that I’ve gotten over feeling like I’m headed to the rodeo (although it does give off hoedown vibes), I can’t wait to try new ways to wear the trend this spring and summer.

So what are your thoughts? Leave the bandana’s in the 90s or rock them like it’s 2016? Comment below I’d love to hear!
