You asked for some inspo, and now you’ve got it. I blogged here about how bandanas are an easy and affordable wardrobe update, but wanted to paint the picture a little more fully with this post. Even I got some fresh ideas while searching for these images; what fun we can have with fashion, am I right?
There’s really no wrong way to style one of these bad boys. With multiple ways to tie bandanas around your neck (or I’m also partial to the bun tie, or bag adornment), do you feel the growing need to adopt the knot?
Here are some options ripe for the picking: Urban Outfitters (they have an awesome selection here), Banana Republic, Zara.
I’d love to hear how you style yourself. Comment below with any additional knot techniques or tag your pictures with the hashtag #steepedinstyle. Let’s get social!

If I could insert all the sun/sand/lobster roll emojis in this plain text environment, I WOULD. This weekend was finally spring-like, with strong summer undertones. I was not complaining.
I spent the majority of time outside, and didn’t want to spend too long worrying in the shadows of my closet. Easy dressing was key. I’ve spoken fondly of my kinship with monochromatic dressing and navy, so it was only a matter of time until the two were married here on Steeped in Style.
Both the top and bottoms are from J.Crew and are super relaxed (either blousey, or elastic banded) which works well for a low-key vibe. The sandals and hat are two new additions this season, both will appear in many more posts I’m sure.
Again, shout out to Banana Republic for having L/XL size hats, for those with big brains like myself.
Now, who’s ready for another blissful weekend? What will you be wearing?

I’ve fallen fast and hard for my new favorite boyfriend.
Boyfriend jeans that is. In all honesty, it’s the only long-distance relationship (LDR) I’ve ever had; I longingly think of them all week, until that moment on Saturday morning where we’re reunited for another weekend of blissful adventures. I take my clothing seriously! This is a style blog after all.
I’ve been really into the loose-fitting, semi slouchy, pant with a playful sneaker. Not really my signature look, but sometimes it’s fun to play in all the sandboxes.
What are you all lovin’ on fashionwise recently?
More than ever, I’m finding simple dressing to be a thing of beauty. When you get through all the clutter of trend-heavy magazine and blog pages, there are few items that stand the test of time.
The white Oxford is one of those. I prefer mine slightly over sized, but still lean; long enough to tuck a tail in, or not. I’ve been hitting the jackpot over in the Gap Men’s department over the last year, because those seem to best fit my longer frame. Sidenote: it seems like there is always a 30% off sale at Gap, including now.
Is this a look that you all feel as much unabashed love for as I do? Sharing is caring. Comment below!
With the new season comes the gaping hole in your wardrobe for wearable accents (once you do the annual closet switch, that is). This Fall, the pointy-toed flat is striking the right cord. With silk blouses, and loose trousers, these simple but striking picks will create a modern look from head to foot.
Which look is your favorite?

It’s hard to get out the door on a rainy, snowy (whatever that slushy mix was!) morning. One thing I have learned is that any piece with a touch of fur gives a look that taste of glamour that instantly finishes it off. I also adore this flowy blousy top that I found on a thrifting trip; the pair of the two pieces gives almost a 70’s vibe – which I don’t mind in the least. Totally picturing this look with a middle part pony tail and some hope earrings ….
Other ways to style fur:
- Fitted top + harem or pj-inspired pants
- Baseball cap + boyfriend jeans
- Maxi skirt/dress + felt hat
How about you, is fur still a sure thing in your closet? Let me know in the comments, I could talk about this for hours …

I typically don’t think of myself as a cool person. Don’t get my wrong, I like myself well enough, but that sense of being ‘enviable’ or ‘always at the popular table’ has never been my defining character. This look may be a little out of the ordinary for me, but I believe in experimenting and trying new things – if we can’t put on a new layer of self expression daily, then there isn’t much hope for growth, right?
I’ve been wanting a pair of leatheresque leggings for a while now, and Zara of course had some great options. Paired with my (only) concert tee, and a denim jacket, I felt a-typically cool.
What about you? What outfit pushes you outside of your fashion habits? I’d love to hear.
