Noticed: Bandanas as Necklaces

140416_MWSM_NoticedPost_10

Bandanas, with their hypnotically swirling paisley prints, have experienced many revivals and have been embraced everywhere from the Wild West to modern-day Brooklyn. More musicians, artists and outlaws than we can count credit them as an accessory of choice. And recently, we’ve been spotting them around the office twisted into an unlikely shape: a necklace.

While we love this style tweak’s Americana roots, we wanted to keep it from careening into cowgirl territory. Twisted and tied loosely around the neck, it’s jewelry, but in a fun, unexpected form (especially handy for those days when you’d rather keep the rest of your outfit super-simple). And should you want the effect to be a touch less “look at that thing around her neck” and more “what a clever styling trick,” choose a bandana in the same color family as your top.

Like what you see here? It’s our Folktile Bandana.
