Bandana Mania

Some blogs give you 3 ways to wear a Bandana. I am going to give you way more than 3 combinations.
But first what do you really know about Bandana or Kerchief as we could also called it ?

Where is it coming from ?

A kerchief (from the French couvre-chef, "cover the head") also known as a bandana or bandanna, is a triangular or square piece of cloth tied around the head or around the neck for protective or decorative purposes. The popularity of head kerchiefs may vary by culture (gang subcultures, workers..) or religion duty or commitment (jewish, orthodoxes..)

A bandana is a type of large, usually colorful, kerchief, usually worn on the head or around the neck. Bandanas are frequently printed in a paisley pattern ( droplet-shaped vegetable motif of Persian/Iranian origin)

There are three classical colors, black, blue & red.
Where to find them ?

You can definitely find some in vintage shops, but some very old one, could reach about 100$.
Better to buy a new one at 15$ and to make it old yourself, by wearing it a lot !

Dress code advise ?

Of course, forbidden the cowboy total look ! So for a Street Style session, please keep your Santiags in your closet while you are wearing a Bandana. Otherwise you are living in the Montana, and you are already riding horse, then there is no problem.

Please find below some of the best ways to wear a bandana every day
