Neck scarf special: How to rock it

One of spring’s hottest trends is the rise of the neck scarf- bandanas included! At first, I was hesitant about adopting this style, but I’ve turned a new leaf and fully embraced the classic trend. In fact, I’m singing the neck scarf praises, they can do no wrong! And my collection continues to grow.

If you aren’t convinced yet, let me lay down the perks of jumping on this trend:

Neck scarves are a game changer because they’re lighter than a scarf, but they still keep your neck (and you, in turn) warm from Chicago’s persistent winds (automatic win in my book). Neck scarves are also super affordable (I bet you can even borrow some from your grandma).

They might seem a little intimidating at first, but I’ve experimented with this style a few ways, to confidently guide you into 3 simple ways to wear the scarf. Keep reading to see how to rock this style!

1. The classic bandana

We’re all familiar with this style. The bandana was the first member of the resurgence, and as such has earned itself the “classic” title. You can choose any color under the sun, but I recommend a basic red. It’s great to wear this guy if you’re in search of a pop of color, but don’t want to wear a full-on scarf. If you’re having trouble tying your bandana, here’s a great how-to gif.

2.The double wrap-around

If your bandana is longer like these ones, then you can try the double wrap-around method. I think this style is a great substitute for a choker! This method of styling is a little preppier than the classic bandana. I paired it with a classic gray v-neck, but it’d also look great with a simple t-shirt dress.

3. The loosey goosey

Similar to the classic bandana, the loosey goosey is yet another way to rock the neck scarf trend. Simply roll your neck scarf, tie a loose knot, and voilà! This style is perfect for warmer days when you don’t want your neck to get too hot from the scarf. I think it looks like a more feminine take on the bolo tie, and I’m not mad about it.

Are you going to hop on the neck scarf trend? Which way would you style it?
