This Dolce and Gabbana ad was definitely eye-catching to say the least. There’s just something about the look of a headscarf and sunglasses that is so iconic. The bonnet would be the perfect base for a headscarf fashion, imagine a head scarf draped around it probably pinned at the back to stop it falling down!
Head scarf history: The 'Queen at Balmoral' look
Head scarf timeline
It’s not the first time Dolce and Gabbana have used head coverings in their campaigns. For their Autumn/Winter collection last year Dolce and Gabbana revived that vintage look with printed scarves tied under the chin.
Headscarf styles aren’t that uncommon in winter but it’s nice to see the trend translate into a lighter look.
So now back to spring/summer for a surprisingly headscarf friendly collection. I just love those stripes!
Start with a large, square scarf. I like my vintage silk scarves because they're soft and not bulky.
Fold one corner to the other to form a triangle.
Fold the corner down to about the middle, and then fold over again (but not all the way to the edge, because you want it to be a little thicker).
Put the scarf around your head with the ends in the front, making sure the wrong side of the scarf (the part where you can see the folds) is against your head. Tie it in a loose knot at the front. I like to keep the whole scarf a little on the loose side (it will stay in place).
Tuck the ends behind/underneath the scarf.

Head scarf should be folded vertically and must be placed properly on the back of the head so that the scarf hangs down and get balance in a parallel way; then we have to hold one side of the scarf and to move upward across the top of forehead and to pull the other side across the another end.

Now we have to wrap one end of the scarf to the back of head so that it tightly sticks to the other side, again we have to do the same with the opposite end of head wrap. The final is to fold both the ends over the forehead and to twist it around according to individual style; boby pins should be used to tighten the last fold.
