Is my head scarf retro chic or does it make me look like an old lady?

I was hanging out with two of my friends. My girlie-vintage friend told me my scarf looked very retro chic and that she liked it, but my hipster friend told me I looked like an old lady.

If you can't tell, it's brown with a pink and orange floral print. My hair is up in a ponytail.

  • Not trying to be mean, but honestly it looks like an old lady, or at the very least like a cast-off, hermit type. The way you have it in your profile picture has a younger look to it. Anything beyond that is too much scarf in the hair.

  • Sorry but: old lady!

    It's more the fabric size and shape of the scarf that do the old lady vibe. Well I guess the floral print hels out a little. But yeah pretty 1950's grandma.

    So if you want to name it it's gonna be: retro-granny chic look.

  • Neither. I'd say it's more of a "bleeding head wound" look.

  • Second one doesn't look as good, I don't think, first ones badass. But it is old lady-ish, but like... In a good way, you know? Like, gypsy stuff.

  • I love the pidgeonholing people lol

    To me it looks like something middle eastern. And something that maybe a woman a little bit older than you might wear and pull off.

  • I've NEVER seen someone wear a scarf on their head like that, or claim its "retro"..made me giggle a bit. In my opinion it does look a little oldlady like. If you like it wear it, maybe it'll catch on ? better to be unique then plain and boring, anyday.

    • This is where I got the idea: link

      But if I'm doing it wrong, then how do you wear one correctly?

    • Ah, I see. Yours looks a bit different, were you using a scarf like hers (square) or rectangle ?.. I don't know honestly, I'm not the best to ask.

    • I'm on the 'better to be unique than plain and boring, anyday'. Especially if you do it by accident

  • I've seen some girls wear this look, but the scarf was in contrast with the color of their hair, and it really suited them.

    It really doesn't suite you. I think you'd look good in a bun though. Like a sexy strict librarian sort of chic! x)

  • Personally, I don't like it.

    But I don't think it make you look like an old lady, either.
