Keeping your head covered is one way to beat Mr. Winter.

Let’s face it. The cold weather is here. And as much as we try to stay warm and cozy in our heated homes and cars, there is the inevitable going outside and bracing ourselves for that rush of cold air.

Keeping your head covered is one way to beat Mr. Winter. Try a warm winter cap and your feelings about the winter will definately change. You may find that you even start loving that morning chill!

 

Many women find berets extremely comfortable for winter. In addition to being a stylish headcover, slouchy berets can keep your warm. And if it gets really cold, you can pull the beret over your ears and stay nice and toasty!

 

For those of you who wear a pretied headscarf, a velour pretied bandana is a great option for the colder weather. The soft fabric looks great and this is an ideal headcover for indoors and out.

 

So no matter if you chose a pretied bandanna, a thicker headscarf,  a warm hat or knit beret, keeping your head covered will definitely keep you warm!

One of the most famous prints printed on bandanas is the paisley print

 

The paisley design looks like a teardrop with a curve at the top. The design originates in India and was brought to Europe and America in the 18th and 19th century. Most notable were the paisley scarves brought in by the East India Company. However, the design only got its name when it started being mass-produced in the large Scottish textile town of…you got it… Paisley!

 

The paisley print went in and out of fashion for the next couple of decades and made its big comeback in the 1960s in the U.S. In the 1960s multi-cultural looks were the rage and the paisley pattern was back in its full glory. John Lennon or Beatles fame even had one printed on his Rolls Royce!

 

Nowdays, some of the more common items that have the paisley print are handbags, skirts, paisley sunvisors, paisley wallets, ties and of course the bandana! Paisley bandanas can come as squares, triangles, or in their pre-tied bandana head band version.

 

So go ahead – it’s not just for the summer! The paisley print will carry you all through the year with its rich history and classic look!
