Scarves are one of those multi-function accessories that you can use in so many different ways, you'll forget you only have one of them. Well, that is for the people that only have one scarf...I'm not one of those people. I have somehow acquired various colors, shapes, sizes, and weights of scarves over the years. I always wore my scarves in pretty basic ways: the pull through during winter with heavy weighted scarves, or the chic neck wrap with lighter scarves. Sometimes I'd fashion a headband if I was feeling daring. It wasn't until more recently that I started even noticing the trending scarf looks happening around me. So I decided to do a little research and find some looks from over these past few decades that were popular during that time (I think that most all of these have come back in fashion multiple times, if they're not currently in fashion again now), and who I tend to relate the look to most from that time.
2000s: The Infinity Scarf
-Via every female celebrity with a potentially cold neck.
1990s: The handkerchief top
- Via Rachel from S Club 7
1980s: The Ascot Wrap
-Via Claire, from The Breakfast Club
1970s: The Pan Am Neck Knot
-Via Kate Jackson in Charlie's Angels
1960s: The Headband Wrap
1950s: The Starlet
-Via Audrey Hepburn
1940s: The Rockabilly Wrap
-Via Rosie the Rivetar
1930s: The Bandana Wrap:
-Via Faye Dunaway in Bonnie and Clyde
1920s: The Turban
-Via Gloria Swanson
I even tried a few of these looks myself:
- The 90's handkerchief top
- 1940s: Rockabilly Wrap
But out of all of these looks, I think my favorite is always a simple wrap. Elegant, chic, and no effort!
What is your favorite style? Any from the list above or something totally different?
