5 Ways to Wear a Bandana or Neckerchief

A few weeks ago, I ordered a pack of assorted bananas/neckerchiefs on amazon. And I have been obsessed with them every since. I like that they are a nice alternative to necklaces and scarves. Here are a few of the ways I have worn them.

Pink Neckerchief with Grey and White Stripes

 

Pink Neckerchief New

 

Turquoise Neckerchief with Black and White Striped Tee

 

Teal Neckscarf

 

Yellow Neckerchief with Polka Dot Blouse 

 

Yellow Neckscarf 3

White and Black Neckerchief with Black Tunic

 

White Bandana

 

Red Neckerchief with Red and White Striped Tee, Grey Sweater & Jeans Jacket

 

Red Neckerchief 4

Question: What clothing item and/or accessory are you currently obsessed with? My neckerchief obsession is still going strong and I’m currently contemplating adding several more…

  2. I love all of the different ways you styled these colorful bandanas! My favorite is the blue polka dot blouse with the yellow!

    1. Thanks, Katie! I like the yellow one with the blue polka dot blouse, too. Yellow is one of my favorite colors as it's such a "happy color," but it's hard for me to wear yellow near my face. I think in the outfit it works because of the blue of the blouse.

    1. Thanks, Rebecca!

      For about 10 years now, I have a really hard time tolerating earrings (must be old age...). I either wear my hypoallergenic stud earrings or none at all. It's a shame because I have quite the earring collection...

  6. I am a big bandana fan although I will be the first to admit I often only wear them for holding back my sweat when I'm running.

    Yours look much more fashionable!
