Happy day, reader dearest!
Welcome to another easy peasy spring & summer style pop. There’s no real reason to pigeonhole this as spring/summer, btw. I think a headscarf is an amazing way to add color and personality to a cool weather outfit, too! As I mentioned in Installment 1 (Bag + Scarf), scarves in less-than-typical ways are having their style moment. Why? Good question. I think part of it is optimism, which plays out in more color and pattern. Yes, when you follow trends throughout history, times of optimism tend to be times where culture plays with more color. Now you could argue cart or horse, but either way, we are seeing more color. I think another aspect is greater appreciation for diverse concepts of beauty. That one makes my heart sing, because I am firmly convinced that the breadth of human diversity is simply a reflection of the infinite beauty of our creator.
Before getting into the headscarf fun, I want to share some other frolic I and Jodie of Jodie’s Touch of Style have plotted for this week! Since I started the Copycat Style posts last year, they’ve taken on a life of their own. Just for fun, Jodie and tribe are copycatting three of my styles on her blog this week, and I’m combo copycatting one of theirs. Make sure to look for their looks on Jodie’s Instagram. Tomorrow Lesley’s take will go live, so please make sure to visit Jodie’s Touch of Style Tuesday to see how she wears me! That sounds funny, doesn’t it?
This one shouldn’t be too hard. I know you have a head! And you likely have a scarf… Will you wear them together?From whence did this resurgence come? Whether the headscarf’s style moment is due to creative Covid ways to cope with bad hair days, or a greater appreciation of diverse style options, I’m good. I don’t care why, I just love seeing color and pattern, and individuality. Although if everyone is jumping on the headscarf train, is it really individual anymore? That’s an epic and ever timeless question. In this case, I say yes, since there are infinite ways to make the look your own.) A quick Pinterest search nets something like this…
Headscarves have been around for centuries. (Literally.) You can choose any era and vibe that makes you happy! Headscarves can look relaxed and nature girl, Grace Kelly, Mod Squad, or Rosie the Riveter. Wear yours any way you darned well please! I like a long scarf tied like a headband with the tails down the back. It’s the closest I’ll get to long hair, and I find interest as you walk away, well, interesting!
How have I worn a headscarf? Well, I don’t have the luxurious locks to make the Bardot or nature girl look, but here are few of my headscarf moments…
How About You?
Do you wear headscarves? Or does a headscarf remind you of women hiding pink foam rollers? Would you dare to tie one on your head AND another on your bag? Or is that just Toooooo much? What’s your style preference? More granola girl? Brigitte Bardot? Princess Grace? Jackie O? Turban? There is a headscarf for pretty much any personality style you can imagine!
