Fashion Inspiration: 40's Headscarf

Friday, May 20, 2011

Lately I can't get enough of girls wearing scarves around their heads and this Parisian cutie is no exception. She looks spot on beautiful in her shirt and the sweet scarf tied into a bow. I'm smitten with the whole 1940's vibe she is giving out!

Also, I think this sunny hand dyed silk scarf would be perfect to recreate the look above! Darlings, are you brave enough to give it a try? How do you accessorise your hair for summer? xo

P.S: A brillaint how to tie 40's headscarf!

The headscarf is an integral fashion piece in the Caribbean.
From the market lady to the business woman to the model on the beach - everyone wears them.

The ones pictured above are so very pretty, too. Have a nice weekend. xx

Brenna, with cute hair pins. I think you can see one above her ear.

I love this look and I love the way the girl in the first pic kept her headband from slipping by using a pretty, sparkly clip. Functional and pretty, I love it! I think I'll definitely be wearing scarves this summer.

love this look, I always try it but my hair is so fine and slick that the scarves just slip right off my head.
I have to have 20 bobby pins to keep it in place, kinda destroys the look, lol.
Have a great weekend!!!

The top picture is fantastic and I think you would look adorable wearing this style, try it!

I'm thinking the head scarf might come in handy for days I don't wanna wash my short hair. You'd just have to do it right! I say everyone should give it a try
