Our column Sourced answers all your market-related questions, as well as offers you an endless source of styles that will make snagging today’s top trends easy, so you can spend your precious time learning about the next wave of trends. 
Summer fashion has little room for layering or accessorizing. With the hot temperatures outside, it’s hard to find ways to wear jewelry that doesn’t stick to your skin or hair accessories that don't make you reach for dry shampoo post every wear. Yet, silk bandanas remain a go-to accessory come summer, and that’s because they’re probably one of the most versatile ones. This year, they’re also one of the season’s top trends

For confirmation, look to the spring/summer 2022 runways where Versace and Blumarine showed an array of silk scarves and scarf-like tops in bright hues. A staple of the Y2K era (see: Jennifer Lopez on the 2000 MTV VMAs red carpet), silk bandanas can be worn in a plethora of ways: as hair accessories, neck scarves, and, if the style is big enough, even strapless tops. Perhaps that’s why, no matter the trends of the moment, we keep coming back to them. 
Ahead, we’ve scoured the internet for some of the best silk bandanas to shop this summer.
