90s Trends: How To Style A Bandana

One of the latest fashion trends to make a comeback from the nineties has got to be the bandana. Whether you choose to wear it around your wrist, in your hair, around your neck, or on your bag, this trend is a great way to bring some extra style to any outfit.

Headband

Thread it through your hair, around your head or even in your ponytail to bring a casual element to any outfit. It can hide messy hair on those in-between days! We love how bloggers are wearing this trend during summer and winter weather.

Scarf

For those colder days, you can simply tie the bandana around your neck to protect against the cold. Match it with a comfy sweater, structured blazer, or even a long-sleeve shirt for extra warmth.

Bag

To bring a casual-cool element to your outfit, tie your favourite bandana onto the zipper of your bag. This is great if you want to inject some colour into your style without fear of going over the top.

Arm candy

Why not add it to your wrist for some extra arm candy? It’s the perfect way to bring some edge to jewellery which is classic in style. Blogger and author Leandra Medine from Man Repeller shows us how to make this work with denim and stripes.

5 Best Fashion Bloggers

From street style to killer couture, the best fashion blogs keep us coming back for more. Here are the 5 best fashion bloggers from Australia, New York, London and beyond – and secretly, we’d love to be BFFs with them for the closet-raiding privileges alone!

Karla’s Closet
You know how Sex and the City was fictional and Carrie Bradshaw wasn’t a real person? Well, that might not be true. If there was ever a real life Carrie, it would be Karla Deras. On Karla’s Closet, Karla showcases her stunningly fashion forward style. Much like Carrie before her, Karla mixes high-end pieces with vintage and high street buys. When Teen Vogue asked her about her favourite places to shop, she named Goodwill, Saks and H&M. If that’s not fashion diversity, then we don’t know what is.

…Love Maegan
Maegen Tintari screams L.A. – she’s adorable, bubbly, with awesome hair and a gorgeous glow. But her fashion blog is more than just killer outfits (and they seriously are incredible). Maegan shares beauty and home decor tips, as well as writing honestly about marriage and her struggle to conceive. Her beautiful smile alone will have you hooked. Maegan’s Pinterest boards are some of our favourites too.

Styled By Phillips
Aussie model and media personality Nikki Phillips is one of Australia’s best fashion bloggers, with a constantly updated stream of bright colours and stunning locations – from Bondi to Bali. Nikki’s style is mostly Australian designers so her blog is a great way to follow what’s happening in local fashion. Follow her Instagram feed for fun behind-the-scenes snaps.

Ring My Bell
If personal style blogging doesn’t work out, Ashley Madekwe has a second career to fall back on. After all, this London fashionista living in L.A. is a full-time actress, starring in shows like Secret Diary of a Call Girl and Revenge. Ashley blogs about her style, which is a mixture of London cool and boho chic. Why we heart her even more is that she blogs as if she were just any other girl rifling through the racks at a cool vintage store.

The Man Repeller
We’ve been following the very witty New York fashion blogger Leandra Medine a.k.a. The Man Repeller since what feels like the beginning of the internet (ok, about two years). Her refreshing attitude to fashion can be summed up by: don’t dress to impress, wear what YOU love. Make sure you follow The Man Repeller on Instagram for hilarious daily snapshots into her life.
