Bandanas are shining examples of the type of beautiful and decorative headwear that really makes a statement; especially when they come in the form of red bandanas, the most beautiful and striking head wraps available.
Bandanas come in a variety of styles and fashions; red bandanas in particular can take on a variety of designs and suit any number of occasions. A country style cotton or polyester bandana, worn around the head and available in checked and striped prints, would be perfect for a square dance, a picnic, a country-style dinner, a hoe down, a country western party, or erhaps just a day of hearty farm work. A silk or satin bandana, by contrast, can be worn turban style on top of the head (preferably affixed with a jeweled or decorative pin) and worn to a costume party, a ball, a formal dinner or ball, etc.
Regardless of their style, fabric or design, bandanas make a definite fashion statement. People who wear them are generally considered cool, casual and artsy; they are among the first ones to be noticed in a room, and are always remembered long after they leave. Furthermore, people who sport this distinctive headgear are bound to start a trend; one that their friends and neighbors are sure to follow.
All bandanas share the common attributes of softness, flexibility, and beauty. Beyond these shared qualities, no two bandanas are alike; and red bandanas in particular are both popular and distinctive. Indeed, the red bandana—whether worn around the neck or the forehead-- is a classic symbol of country life and classic rural charm. They have been worn by everyone from country singers to Southern politicians, bull riders to fiddle players, old grand dames of the south to fashion conscious teen-agers seeking to follow current fashion trends. Indeed, country is 'cool' again; as the renewed popularity of the red bandana signifies.
If a host is planning a square dance, hay ride, country and western soiree, or hoe down, then chances are that she will see a great number of guests who are wearing bandanas, especially of the ruby hued variety. Yet today's party guests also might wear them to dinner parties, soirees, cocktail parties, and even perhaps to balls and tea parties. Of course, a guest probably will not wear the same bandana to each of these festivities; ah, but that is the beauty of the bodacious bandana.
