Five Ways to Wear a Bandana

Being a Texan, I already owned a couple of bandanas and ever since I saw this girl sporting one as a scarf, I’ve been playing around with the trend. Stores are carrying them in a range of prices (I’ve seen some that are $20 or more!), but I was able to pick up a couple of colors from my local Hobby Lobby store for less than $2. As it is one of my new favorite trends, I thought I’d share a few ways in which I’ve worn the scarf, and plan to, once the fall rolls around.

To start off, there are two basic folds that you’ll need to know; the half-fold (step 2) and long-fold (step 5):

Bunny Ear Tuck

Start with the long fold and place it around your neck, with the ends facing the back. Tie it (1 – 2 times), and tuck the bunny ears in.

Air Hostess

Start with the long fold, and then place the bandana around your neck, with the ends facing the front. Tie it around your neck, air hostess-style.

Classic Cowboy

Fold the bandana in half, place it around your neck with the ends facing back, and tie it around your neck (1 – 2 times).

The Cape

This is basically the Classic Cowboy, but backwards. Fold the bandana in half, place it around your neck with the ends facing front, and tie it around your neck, like a cape (1 – 2 times).

Headband

Start with the long fold and wrap it around your head, tying it at the bottom. If needed, secure it with bobby pins. Note: You can either tuck in the ends, leave them untucked or you can also tie the scarf on the top of your head. (That’s a little too girly for me, so I tied it at the bottom and left the ends untucked).

There are tons of other ways to wear a bandana scarf, but these are just the five that I found to be the easiest, and most suitable to my style.
