Head accessories can be that perfect complimentary touch to an ensemble or add that little extra flair to an understated one. Mz Mahogany Chic is gearing up for Fashion for the Cure and is taking some fashion inspiration from the event. Head scarves can especially be a stunning eye catcher. It’s a quick and easy way to add some spark while making women feel as beautiful as they are. There are some different ways to wear headscarves, a lot which were popular in decades past but continue to make their way into modern fashion.
Headscarves were huge during this era. The iconic headscarf of Rosie the Riveter can never be forgotten. But this look has now returned into modern day era fashion. Australian designer Karen Walker has brought back the 1940s headscarf for her spring/summer 2012 collection. The way to accomplish this look is to tie the scarf tightly on top of the forehead to create a small-scale turban.
The 1960s headscarf look is a classic and screams movie star. The scarf tied loosely at the chin paired with giant sunglasses is pure glamour. Walker also debuted this headscarf look in her fall 2012 collection.
Headscarves continued their rein into the 70s. This time the look was a side ponytail-esque tie on the side. It’s a fun, breezy look that takes minimal effort to put together. Hermes’s fall 2012 collection incorporates the 70s style scarf and helped bring it back into today’s fashion.
The kinds of scarves to use are endless. They range from silk to bold prints to solid colors. There is a scarf to match every personality type and every mood. This flexibility is why headscarves are the ultimate head accessory.
