we’re having a retro moment for a trend that’s lingered on our pinterest feed even after summer’s end — the headscarf. how cool does one look when they’ve perfectly mastered the wrapping of a pucci print scarf, more than appropriate on days when we may not have the energy to wash our hair. we tend to fantasize stumbling upon the perfect scarf for a weekend get-away to palm springs, or while trailing rows at the flea market (a good spot to score vintage scarves for just a few bucks). whether you’re channeling lulu de la falaise, or an hermes ad campaign from the 60s’, we’re right there with you (watching how-to tie videos on youtube, stellar and vimeo no less).

  1. Perfect timing, THANK YOU for posting this! I used to wear head scarves all the time up until a few years ago when I (inexplicably) decided that I was too old (at 40!) to even attempt to ‘rock this look’ anymore. HOW UTTERLY RIDICULOUS! I have a case FULL of beautiful vintage scarves just waiting to see the light of day!

  2. I love those, I’m an orthodox married jewish girl, so I cover my hair with turbans every day. Those are very inspiring!

    If you click on my Pinterest account, my profile picture is one of my favorite wraps :)

    Thanks for the wrapping love! Love from Israel

  3. thanks for the inspiration.
