A Decade In Scarf Styles: 1960s

Scarves were a big hit in the 1960s. From Mod-esque bandanas, to polished pussybows, this was a decade in scarf styles that inspired trends for decades to come.

Let’s take a look at some of iconic ways that scarves were styled in the 1960s…

The Hair Bandana

On-trend Mod dresses were teamed with punchy printed scarves wrapped around the head and secured in a bow at the nape of the neck.

Popular scarf trends included polkadots, monochrome and various geometric shapes.

It doesn’t get more 1960s than a black and white collared shift dress!

An orange and monochrome printed bandana reflects the Andy Warhol pop art era to perfection.

Statement sunglasses were massive in the 60s! Rather than opting for a sunhat, 1960s fashionistas often wrapped large scarves around their hair.

Well… that’s one way to avoid sweaty/sandy/salty hair!

The Pussy Bow

Prior to the 1960s, the implementation of menswear in a woman’s wardrobe was pretty much non-existent.

Rather than opting for a typically masculine tie, many women found middle-ground by using a scarf and tying it as a pussy bow.

The pussy bow was often paired with collared shirts or shift dresses.

Bridget Bardot is one of those women whose style influence is eternal.

The sizzling 60s starlet complimented her white shirt with an oversized polkadot pussy bow.

Shift dresses were often given an edge with a pussy bow. Those women wishing to truly borrow from the boyfriend wore their silk scarves as ties.

Long & Flowing

As this 1960s Christian Dior campaign shows, the longer the scarf, the better!

Longer silk scarves were tied around the hair, with the lengths of fabric left flowing down the back.

The Cap

Hair scarves were prominent throughout the 60s and 70s. However, one style that was typical of the 1960s alone was the cap.

Scarves were wrapped around the top of the head and tied under the chin, appearing like a cap or bonnet.

A Decade in Scarf Styles: 1970s

If the 1970s had to be summed up in one accessory, it would undoubtedly be a scarf. From the paisley-print pretties of the peace-out era, to the sparkling turbans of the Studio 54 scene, the 1970s were ruled by scarves!

Whether you’re looking to add a little 1970s flair to your style, or you’re addicted to everything retro, here’s the 1970s decade in scarf styles summed up.

The Hairband

70s big screen queen Goldie Hawn sure knows how to rock a hair scarf. Rather than wearing as a tight turban or wrap around, the boho beauty wore her scarf lose, allowing it to tumble down among her golden curls.

The Head Scarf

Those looking for a more statement look wrapped a printed scarf around their entire head.

The bold prints were often accompanied by statement earrings, smoky eye makeup and brightly colored lips.

Farrah Fawcett was the pioneer of the 70s ‘All American preppy girl’. That flicked out blonde do’, those high waist jeans and impeccable tailored suiting make her one of the most iconic fashion figures of the late 1970s.

So how exactly do you wear your scarf like the original Charlies Angel? Take a life out of Farrah’s stylish book and wear your silk scarf wrapped around short and tied in a neat knot at one side.

How To Create A Gender-Neutral Boho Nursery

A boho nursery is a fantastic idea for parents-to-be who want to decorate their nursery in a gender neutral theme.

Not sure where to start? Here’s our guide to creating a gender-neutral boho nursery…

Create A Gender-Neutral Color Scheme

(Photo source: bloglovin.com)

Creating a gender-neutral boho nursery is all about avoiding those colors that are stereo-typically associated with gender. Baby pink and lilac are too girly and should be avoided at all costs. On the other hand, baby blue is often associated with boys so we suggest avoiding this color too.

The inspiration photo above is a wonderful example of a gender-neutral color scheme. Beige and neutrals make a perfect basis to add gender-specific colors to once the baby is born.

Deep reds and crimsons add warmth to the room without being associated with a specific gender.

Orange, white, olive and burnt orange all give that warm, bohemian edge without being gender specific.

For an extra vibrant nursery, add a printed quilt and wicker accessories.

Deep Blue

Unlike baby blue, deep blue is a stunning gender-neutral choice.

When paired with gold and brown, it creates a stunning contrast that will give any nursery that wow factor.

We adore the wallpaper with the woodland creatures.

Opt For Animal Prints

Stereotypical nurseries may have car prints for boys and florals for girls, but what prints are gender-neutral?

Animal prints of course!

The innocence and cuteness of animals can be applied to any gender, which makes animal prints a wonderful choice.

Create a safari-themed, boho nursery with a mix of African boho prints and animals such as lions, giraffes and elephants.

Animal prints are the perfect excuse to fill the nursery with stuffed toys too!

Add A Printed Rug

The best thing about a printed rug is that it is easily interchangeable!

Start by jazzing up your nursery floor with a burnished orange or red table runner or rug. Once the baby is born, you can easily switch it out for something more girly or boyish.

Go For Statement Lighting

A statement light is a wonderful way to add a stylish and unique edge to your nursery.

Scandinavian shaped pendants, such as the one in the photo above, will remain stylish whilst your little one is growing up too.

Also, how beautiful do the grey and white chevron prints look in the white crib?

Add An Element Of Wanderlust With An Accent Wall

An accent wall with mountains or a bohemian print is a fantastic option for a gender-neutral nursery.

As a matter of fact, the more statement the wall is, the plainer you can leave the rest of the nursery!

Add Printed Accessories

Geometric prints such as triangles are incredibly gender neutral and can be reused in other rooms once your child grows up.
