If you used to consider pedal pushers with a spaghetti strap crop top the ultimate power couple – along with Britney Spears and Justin Timberlake, natch – then we have news for you. Unfortunately, the double denim duo aren’t making a comeback, but another '00s fashion icon is. Following belt bags, anklets and padded velvet headbands (minus your name in glitter), the bandana is the latest throwback accessory enjoying a revival this summer.
Circa 1999, everyone from Christina Aguilera and the Olsen twins to Dionne in Clueless donned a paisley print headscarf. Fast-forward 20 years and it's been given a fresh new look for the catwalks. For SS19, JW Anderson accessorised bold dresses with sleek neutral tone scarves, Kate Spade paired matchy-matchy iterations with her signature printed ensembles and Max Mara went for monogramming.
Now, the high street has cottoned on to the nostalgic look. Not only will a headscarf refresh your outfit with minimum hassle and cost, it also conveniently covers up unwashed tresses. If that’s not reason enough to try the trend, we don’t know what is.
So how do you style it? Simply fold your square scarf diagonally in half to create a triangle, place over your hair and tie at the back of your head. Note: Fix with kirby grips to stop the silky accessory slipping.
