The ’90s have infiltrated our wardrobes consistently over the last couple of years. Whether in the form of stirrup pants or velvet slip dresses, these seemingly of-the-moment pieces are returning, adding the perfect dose of nostalgia that makes an outfit (in this author’s opinion) even cooler. This brings us to the subject of today’s post: the headscarf.
Though the look du jour when it comes to scarves has been to tie it around your neck, we’ve spotted a handful of extremely stylish women sporting these silky scarves atop their heads in a way that feels reminiscent of ’90s hip-hop stars—namely, Aaliyah. Re-create it with a classic paisley bandana, or channel your inner art student and try it with a colorful iteration—the choice is yours.
See below for key examples, and shop our scarf picks along the way so you can test it out yourself.
