Bandanas are Back

Bandanas have been in my life ever since I can remember. However, I was not always so fond of them as I am now. I have many memories of my mom accessorizing my hair with bandanas during my childhood saying how stylish they were when she was growing up despite my incessant protests that I looked ridiculous. As I grew, I learned to tolerate them, and even like them on certain occasions. Even so, I can only recall a handful of times I have been seen sporting one in the past eight years.

Recently bandanas have come full circle and made a stylish and trendy reappearance.  This return began at music festivals like Coachella, notorious for its stylishly dressed attendees in eclectic and western inspired pieces.  I for one, am ecstatic that is western trend is coming back for the sheer versatility of the bandana.  Unlike previous trends gracing festival grounds, this ‘It’ accessory is very affordable and  has some real practicality to it, too.  A bandana can be worn as a head wrap, a headband, a scarf, a choker, a bracelet, and I have even seen it worn as a top on some occasions. So many possibilities!

NYFW

It’s that time of year again when fashionistas gather in New York City.  Ever since street style became a hot topic, fashion week has never been the same.  Style makers congregate in major cities in their best get-ups being photographed and admired by many.

I have been pouring over websites like style.com and other fashion websites viewing the street style this season.  It always amazes me how many photos are being churned out.  I am fascinated each fashion week with the amazing personal style found on the streets.  Many people during NYFW experiment with styling their outfits.  Their venture into the unknown styling creativity is really inspiring.  Everyone always looks so good! Although my everyday uniform will not contain many of the exaggerated pieces, there are elements I will incorporate into my daily style.

Here area few of my picks from NYFW:
