The men’s bandana was an essential accessory during 2020. What started as a fashionable scarf has transformed into a functional accessory that many people have repurposed as face-covering.
Apart from wearing the bandana as a DIY face mask, the square scarf can be worn in many ways, ranging from your neck to your wrist.
When I was younger, I was obsessed with wearing a bandana. I had a baby blue coloured paisley style that I used to wear over my head with a matching New Era cap I got from America – dressed to the side of course. My taste levels have evolved from then, and so has my styling. Here are some of my favourite ways to wear the bandana:
How can I wear a bandana?
Fold the bandana into a triangle and tie it around the back of your head.
Fold the square into a triangle, and then fold up from the long end until you have a long piece. Position on your forehead and tie at the back.
Start with the flat square bandana and fold into a triangle. Tie around the neck with the triangle either at the front or the back, creating a neck scarf.
THE HAND WRAPAP
For more of a practical approach, and for colder seasons, wrap the bandana around the neck or wrist and knot at the front.
Instead of a flat fold, twist the scarf to form a swirl effect, concealed the back or have it tied at the front.
Fold the square into a triangle, and then fold up from the long end until you have a long piece. Position it around your neck like a scarf and tie at the back.
Switch the knot to the front for a versatile look.
Fold to create a long rectangle and wrap around the neck, concealing the ends underneath your t-shirt.
Tuck your bandana into your back pocket for a casual streetwear-inspired look.
