Flash forward to 2015, and the accessory is making a comeback in a whole new way. The tiny square of cloth has been insanely popular in the blogosphere over the past few months– being worn in ways that baby Xtina via the early 2000’s would have never imagined. Instead of the classic bandana-hat look, fashion girls have been getting creative–having a ‘sky is the limit’ attitude with the accessory.

I’ll be honest when I say that I’m currently obsessed with this simple accessory. It’s something that everyone can experiment with–a regular bandana, on average, will cost you less than $5 and you can find them almost anywhere and in every color that your heart desires. To be even more honest, they just give off a cool girl vibe, and I’m really into it. Wear one with a plain white tee, denim, or leather (or all three!) for the best look. Out of all of the ways I’ve tried the bandana, here are my 3 favorites ways to wear them:

Back in 2000, when I was 7 years old, I wore a purple bandanna everywhere I went. I wore it around like it was a secret fashion gem, an exclusive trend that nobody else in school had tapped into, except for me. It gave me confidence. Confidence enough to be constantly giving a sass pose and throwing up peace signs in all of my photos (snapped via disposable camera) from that year. In reality, I probably just saw Christina Aguilera wearing her bandanna and tried to replicate the look before all of my friends caught on.

2. On your Wrist

Now, If only that little 7 year old in the purple bandana knew what I know now, she would have been truly ahead of her time.
