Bandana Styles to Sweat into July 4th, 2012

American Flag and Statue of Liberty Indpendence Day

One of the first fashionable and extremely useful accessories to make its mark on American soil was the bandana. Always making a statement, the bandana when worn speaks without words telling people about your personal style, image, and culture. With that said, this week I’m taking a patriotic spin on our nation’s color palette and featuring some of the best well executed red, white, and blue bandanas on the market today.
