80s bandana street-style
The classic bandana has been around for centuries, the word itself originating from the Hindi word bāṅdhnū, meaning a tied, bound cloth. Many people don’t know the hidden legacy, like that it was often used during war times to bundle up possessions, or that in the 1800s, they were used as blindfolds to play certain games. This versatile piece of fabric has many uses. As of the 21st century, the bandana is a strong staple head-piece used to accessorize the street-style look. At Blue 17, we’re here to show you how to style this 80s bandana killer accessory for Summer 2018!
Rock a Vintage Bandana with 80s Gear
One way to style classic them is with 80s clothing, as did hard rock metal bands in the 1980s. Bandanas were used as a form of rebellion, associated with heavy metal and outlandish behaviour. Today, they have been tamed, and now symbolize street-style and individuality. Our model, Ronald, is rocking his stars n’ stripes, red, white and blue bandana with a bright red vintage 80s jacket and light wash vintage 501 jeans. We’re giving this look a 10/10.
