Classic bandanas are colored and generally feature a white paisley print, but there are many more options available today.

Around the neck is one of the easiest ways to wear a bandana. The look can suit just about any gent and can work for both casual and smart-casual occasions. To keep the appearance subtle, opt for a small bandana. Twist it, place it around your neck and tie a knot at the front. Alternatively, for a bolder look, you can try knotting it at the back of your neck with a corner left loose at the front. Or, if your bandana is large enough, you may even be able to wear it as a scarf. But, no matter how you wear it, be mindful of your bandana’s color. Choose bold hues like red to add excitement to otherwise neutral ensembles and softer tones for outfits that already contain color.

I first mentioned my love for bandanas back when I shared my go-to Summer Capsule Wardrobe Essentials list. And something I’m really excited about doing more of on my blog is actually showing you how to wear these essentials – giving you ideas to make more with what you’ve already got. You’ve probably noticed (or will) this little red one popping up in outfits all over the blog and Instagram. It’s quickly become my favorite accessory of the season, and I don’t even hesitate when grabbing it. So much so that I just purchased 2 more colors while at Madewell last week. I’ve found that it truly takes a blah or boring outfit into something cuter; it’s such an easy outfit-completer, often serving as that “third item” I need to round out a look.

How To Wear A Bandana As A Headband

Another simple yet stylish way to wear a bandana is to wrap and tie it around your wrist. Doing so will add a subtle dose of attitude to any outfit. Perfect for edgy casual looks, wearing a bandana around the wrist projects an instant rockstar vibe. As such, this look works best with darker bandanas and striking prints. For instance, a black bandana with white skulls will appear much more appropriate than a traditional red style with a paisley design. Also, remember that a bandana around the wrist looks best when worn a little messy, so don’t get caught with yours perfectly folded and tied.

If you’re looking for a subtle way to incorporate a bandana into a casual outfit, wearing it from your waist makes an excellent option. When you wear a bandana near your face, such as on your head or around your neck, it instantly becomes a statement accessory. But, when worn low from your waist, it can gently accent your outfit and provide it with a pop of color without appearing overly bold. Additionally, you may also find wearing it from your waist much more comfortable and easy. After all, all you need to do is tuck it into a pocket, your belt, or waistband or tie it to a belt loop to attach it.
