5 Bandanas to Keep You Dry and Looking Cool (Among Other Things)
But please don't go robbing banks.
It’s hard to find a photo of a festivalgoer these days that doesn’t include a bandana draped somewhere on their person: off a belt, around a neck, over their nose and mouth.
And while the bandana acts as an easy fashion accessory, it’s so much more than an appropriated festival-fashion item. Here’s a brief list of all the things you can do with a bandana, or really, what a bandana will do for you:
- Keep dust, sand and various airborne diseases out of your mouth
- Remove hair from your eyes and sweat off your forehead
- Neck cooler
- Trendy pocket square
- Robbing banks like an old-timey bandit
- Blowing your nose
- Having shootouts like an old timey bandit
- Tie it around your dog (but only if you want a bunch of people to come up and take pictures of your dog)
- Makeshift napkin
- Impromptu pot-handle holder (but not for long)
- Make-or-break accessory for any John Wayne-themed role-play
You get the picture. So as warm weather approaches, it’s not a bad idea to keep one on you. Below, we’ve got some of the most singularly cool options from around the web.
