In a way I feel like a flight attendant who’s heading to a picnic after her shift in this outfit, but I (secretly) love it! I was avoiding the neckerchief because I was narrowing it’s styling possibilities and didn’t think it’d be worth my money. However, Zara had this neckerchief styled with my top online, I loved the combo and subsequently purchased both pieces. As soon as I received the neckerchief in the mail I started playing with all the folding, tying and wrapping possibilities until I was hooked. I was most surprised at how much I loved it in my hair, while I found that it also looked good around my neck and attached to my tote. This particular neckerchief has a tropical pattern that will be perfect for San Diego beach days and summer vacation style.
Speaking of summer vacation style this Urban Outfitters bag is a must! I purchased another woven bag from Zara but I had to return it because it broke within a few uses, I’m hoping this new one will hold up for me! I compared a whole bunch of bags and as far as size and quality goes this one seemed to be the best price.
1. Around Your Neck: Obviously right (lol)?!! There are ton of ways to tie a neckerchief around your neck to fit different style profiles. From a simple knot, to a cute bow, or classic bandana, pick the one that compliments the neckline of your top the best.
2. In Your Hair: I’m normally not one for headbands or bows but I love how this neckerchief looks wrapped around my head with my hair is tossed up in a messy bun. I can’t wait to wear my hair like this on my upcoming vacation for an effortless beachy look. I’m also a big fan of the scarf tied around a low pony, especially on my long haired ladies!
3. As A Bag Accessory: Dress up a beach tote or classic leather bag by tying your neckerchief around the handle. This is a super simple way to add color to your outfit and make you feel like you have a whole new bag.
4. Belt It: Ok, most neckerchief’s won’t make it all the way around your waist but you can create a belted effect by tying the neckerchief to a single belt loop.
5. Arm Candy: I love this idea for festival because it’s a cute way to look like your wearing jewelry without actually wearing jewelry that could break or get lost. Wrap your neckerchief around your wrist a few time and finish with a small knot, and voilà, a simple accessory with an adorable western flare.
