5 Ways To Wear A Neck Scarf

5 different ways to wear a neck scarf - My Style Vita @mystylevita

This trend came on the scene swiftly this past summer and like many of you, I have been tempted to give it a try. I blame Coachella initially for making me want to make this trend cool because we desperately needed bandanas to survive the dusty winds. We grabbed cheap polyester bandanas at Party City and they were so uncool that I have been on the hunt for the perfect one to style post Coachella.

While doing some fashion week prep a few weeks ago, I found myself in J. Crew and stumbled onto these $12 bandanas that are super lightweight and thin, perfect for rolling up and wearing around your neck. While I took it home, I was a little hesitant to actually go out in public with this on without looking like a total poser. Look, I get it, trends are trends, they come and go, but this one I actually kind of like, especially when it’ll serve a purpose while at Coachella in 2017. So I was determined to grow some balls and wear this thing. I feel like I successfully owned it in this look and ever since have been looking for new ways to incorporate this little accessory.

So in an effort to make the most out of my $12, today I’m sharing 5 easy ways to rock a neck scarf. Whether you want to go all in and wear it around your neck, or just add it to your jacket or bag, this is a must-have accessory for your closet. PS, I just love it in the hair. Here are 5 other ways to style it just for your hair!

The perfect bag accessory. Add a pop of color and texture to your favorite bag by tying this around the strap. It’s a fun compliment to your purse and adds a little something extra to it to make your go to bag feel new again.

Styled as a headband. Roll this bad boy up and tie it around your head for the cutest little headband. If you have long hair, could also be a fun tie for your pony tail.

A fun bracelet. Wrap the scarf twice around your wrist for a bracelet. Since this bandana is slightly smaller and the fabric is quite thin, this won’t be bulky at all.

As a pocket square. Simple and classic, why didn’t I ever think to pop a colorful pocket square into some of my favorite jackets? There’s also tons of ways to fold them to get different looks, you can check out this guide for some ideas.
