Wearing: That Old Red Bandana Is New Again

Growing up I was always getting into some fashion "trend". I use that word loosely to describe the crazy phases I went through. Like the time I wore my bright orange knit cap all day, every day. Or when I "embroidered" jeans and added ribbon details. There was the obsession with rhinestone brooches and vintage high heels. Then there was the bandana collection. My dad gave me a bright teal bandana from a trip, a promotional thing from a conference. To no one's surprise, I loved it. Anything that was brightly colored and questionably stylish was my thing. That one bandana started a quick collection of bandanas of all sizes and colors. I wore them every different way: classicly tied, wrapped around my wrist, longer ones as belts, and the very 90's style headband. The bandana styling fell to the wayside when something new caught my eye.

Years later, wandering through the mall, what happened to catch my eye? The classic red bandana, only slightly longer and more rugged. I knew I had to have it and style it and obsess over bandanas once again.

This is not your bright teal promotional bandana. It's classic like this pair of black high waisted jeans. The added length to the classic red bandana is just perfect. The longer red bandana is great for tying around your neck, easy to wrap like a scarf, or to belt around your waist. I'm all about wearing it tied long around my neck. This is my new fall go-to instead of a heavy and fancy statement necklace. Light, slightly sophisticated, and a new way to wear that old red bandana.
