As I sat outside a local taco joint on a very cold, windy Saturday morning in the ever-so-cool Austin, TX, I thought two things: 1.) Today I will find the hippest trendsetters with the most rad duds and 2.) Why did I wear shorts it’s freezing. After walking around downtown and sitting on top of the roof of Whole Foods like a sniper for hours, I realized something horrifying. Austin has lost its cool. Where did all these mainstreamers come from and who let you in here? My findings were rough. But as always, I make lemonade with my lemons and added some twist in, too.
Using my rule of three, of course, I concluded an upcoming trend of old school headwear. No, not throwing a bandana in your hair and calling yourself a pin up girl. This isn’t 2011. I saw TOO MANY BANDANAS, for the record. I’m talking 1920’s turbans, 1970’s flower crowns, and 1930’s cloches. Love. It. I’m hoping to see many more of these pop up in fashion. Especially the turban that I’m currently in love with. And of course eager to see what they’ll transform into. Turbans with cool prints, flower crowns becoming flower veils, and who knows, maybe denim cloches. Hopefully not the last. Let’s all keep our eyes peeled for this possible emerging trend.
