Bandana Swag Style
The swag image sees bandanas more as an included garment pattern than an actual accessory. However this is never limited. Jeans, dungarees, jackets and t-shirts can all have bandana styling for both ladies and guys. This does not mean however that they cannot be worn as neck or headwear. Black and white is a typical colour combination for swag style and this is commonly seen with bandanas also.
Bandanas as a Summer Accessory
Although not only limited to summer, bandanas are a very common accessory for most outfits all year round. They are fantastic for adding splashes of colour to any outfit regarding colours do at least match or contrast well. They are also a great lightweight item which can be a replacement for the far more weighty and bulky hat. Versatile for any image, bandanas have the upper hand in clothing as the opportunities and ways to wear them is completely endless. via.
