UNIFORM | The Neckerchief

Neckerchief me please. I'm really feeling the smaller bandana-sized scarves this season a.k.a a neckerchief (or kerchief). This style of neckwear was of course made famous by cowboys, sailors, and cool dude racecar drivers, but then went completely hyberbolic in size and proportions in the 70s. The key is to keep the tied pieces short when worn Boy Scout-style (ends facing out). Some neckerchiefs come with a woggle to fasten the ends, like this one from Kiriko, but for the non-woggle variety, I'm liking the above gingham neckerchiefs in red and blue ($22) and indigo blue ($22) by the British brand Universal Works.

Also insanely helpful in preventing the back of your neck from looking like you've stood in nuclear fallout (after a week of mountain climbing/camping in the snow). Trust me on this.

&, not to spam you like a loon, but can we talk about how AWESOME this lady looks in those braces?!?!

@Angelica I know! I was like, wait, wait, the braces too!

Yes, great pic!! Love the neckerchiefs too. I've done it with some classic bandanas I have but wouldn't mind expanding my selection. :)

Love this. I'm going to dig mine out this evening. And agree, she looks AMAZE in those braces.

I will take those braces and the neckerchief as well, and I will instantly be transformed into a super cool cowgirl. Right? I think I just might...
