Accessories Report

Forget bananas. This is bandanas! B-A-N-D-A-N-A-S.

Bandanas have been around for ages. Paisley bandanas have been around since the 1980s. They were just as psychedelic as tie-dye. When I picture a bandana, it’s usually around the face of a cowboy, on the head of a woman to pull back her hair or maybe even around the neck of a little Boston terrier. Never did I imagine a paisley bandana to be worn in a unique way such as this.

At first glance you may think is he wearing a skirt. Nope! It’s a bandana. That’s right! A new trend that you may find around the waist of some city boys. The first time I spotted this trend was around the waist of well-known rapper A$AP Rocky. He is known for his dope hipster style. A$AP has gone above and beyond with this accessory. He has worn paisley bandana shirts, harem pants and hats.

This Fashionisto is wearing a white, paisley, bandana shirt paired with a fitted jacket. I like that this jacket has two textures. The front and back is denim and the sleeves are leather. I simply love the vertical and horizontal zippers on his jeans. This is a great way to add detail to a plain pair of black skinny jeans. To accessorize he wears a red beanie to bring out the hint of red in his sneakers. This Fashionisto finishes off the outfit with a white and black paisley bandana in front of his jeans. This ensemble screams detail, pattern and too-cool-for-school! Get fashion fearless! Don’t be scared to take an accessory and wear it in a new and unique way like this Fashionisto. Who knows, it could end up being the next big trend.
