Scarf-band. Yea or Nay?
I've been a big fan of scarves as head-wear for a long time: folded into a kerchief triangle, wrapped around my head and tied at the nape, and a short-lived sock-hop phase tied around the ponytail. Not all good, admittedly, but that doesn't curb my enthusiasm for new styles. Hence the rambo-like trial run above.
Well, Mr. Stallone looks taken aback, but I think it's because he forgot his bangles and fringed accessories. (photo courtesy of Star Pulse).
The scarf-band (does this trend have a more legitimate name?) is meant to look resurrected-boho rather than Sylvester, but you tell me, are you guys going to try it? Do you think it works when paired with Minnetonkas and a flowy dress?
I couldn't find any good full blown boho outfit photos to support my case, but Free People is charging $24 for their rambo scarves (I got mine from my Aunt Lizzie for free... vintage love):
Both scarves from Free People. I think both of these ladies look lovely, but I particularly wish I had Ms. Right-hand photo's textured, golden curls to hold my head-scarf in place.
