Even more convenient, there’s no strict rule to rocking the retro fad. And if you need some convincing, iconic looks from Hollywood sensations like Audrey Hepburn, Grace Kelly, and Elizabeth Taylor are sure to make you swoon. All you need to do is find a silhouette that fits into the vibe you’re aiming for and voila, you have a modish head start. 

Here are some tips on how to rock headscarves this season…

#1. Colors, prints & designs

Adding to the multiplicity of the headscarf trend, an array of sophisticated and iridescent designs exist to fit. Thankfully, narrowing down your options is fully up to what your personal style dictates. For instance, if you’re a minimalist, think of going for solid color palettes of neutrals like white and tan. On the other hand, floral, animal prints, and geometric designs work perfectly for a look that’s both edgy and chic. Ways to style a headscarf.

#2. Outfit choices  

There’s no doubt that headscarves are slowly becoming statement items of the season. However, they shine even better when paired with ritzy ensemble pieces. To achieve a killer outfit to that effect, definition and structure should be your end goals. What you want to do, for example, is to pair a monochromatic look with a geometric or abstract headscarf. Likewise, a busy attire can be balanced out with a simple colored wrap.

#3. Wrapping techniques 

Here, having fun and letting your creativity do all the talking is key. Your hair definitely sets the tone for how over the top or cinch your headscarf turns out, but the possibilities don’t stop there. If you’re in the mood for something regal, try rocking your scarf crown or Nefertiti style. But if you’re a casualwear devotee looking for an easy fix, the simple wrap-around or pony tie would do.

Having said that, below are some inspirations on how to easily, but stylishly ride the headscarf current. We’ve got you covered! Ways to style a headscarf.

#2. The babushka 

This method of trying a scarf was popularized by Eastern European grandmothers, and made it’s way into the mainstream thanks to fashion-forward rappers. What makes this method great is that it’s super easy and so fashionable at the same time. Simply start by folding a square scarf in half diagonally, then take the two opposing ends and knot them under your chin. And that’s it. The babushka covers most of your head, is incredibly easy to do, and will certainly stay in place all day no matter how frequently you’re moving.  Ways to style a headscarf.

#3. Turban style

When the turban style hit mainstream fashion several years ago, we wondered why it took so long for man to catch on this regal style. The turban is a great complement to an ensemble that evokes classy, famine, and queenly vibes and it looks great in just about any form you choose to rock it. Whether you’re going classical turban, or rosette turban, this method is sure to elevate your look to monarch status. You’ll need an oblong scarf to achieve this look. Start by placing the center of the scarf at the back of your head and pulling the two ends up and around to your forehead. Tie the two ends into a double knot, ensuring that the entire back of your head is covered by the scarf.

#4. Grace Kelly inspired

This method is also called the Babushka 2.0, and was beloved by Old Hollywood starlets. It requires a bit of a larger scarf than the babushka and just one additional step. Rather than simply tying the ends of your scarf under your chin, wrap them around your neck and over the back corner of your scarf before fastening into a knot. Ways to style a headscarf.

#5. The pony tie

If easy was a scarf tying method, it’ll definitely be this one. It’s so easy it can be done in a matter of seconds, yes, you read that right. However, this doesn’t mean it’s in no way stylish and can’t hold it’s own for a style star like yourself. This simply works by tying the scar around your ponytail and you’re good to go. You can achieve this look with pretty much any size or shape, as long as you can secure it in a knot.

#6. The bandana

In the 2000s, the bandanna was certainly the fashion statement worthy to be made. From our favorite Hollywood stars, to uber stylish sportspersons, the whole streets were literally sweeping with bandannas. This 2021, ride on the bandanna wave in a plethora of options from florals to solid colors. Simply fold a square scarf in half diagonally, then tie the two opposite ends under your hair and leave the third corner loose.

#7. The bandana cap

The bandanna cap is the sister to the above but differs slightly in the method of tying. By making a simple tweak in execution, you’ll be giving off a more ’70s vibe as opposed to the 2000s vibe from the regular bandanna style. Instead of knotting your scarf below your hair, tie it on top of your strands and over the loose corner as well. Then tuck the excess fabric under the knot to neaten things up.
