Another throw-back into the ’90s, the humble bandana has made an abrupt return. Worn chicly round the throat, the bandana is the newest way to complete an outfit in fashion.

Best worn in a bold color with a simple yet detailed pattern, bandanas can be easily paired with almost any outfit. Keep a variety in your closet this autumn and just pick out a matching or complimentary color to choose your outfit when it’s in need of some excess style points.
