When it comes to fashion, everything cool comes back again.

That's especially true this spring as some of our favorite trends from the past are being revived — including the handkerchief. That silky thing your grandma kept in her shirt sleeve is back as a fashion accessory.

TODAY Style Squad member and founder of, Lilliana Vazquez, is sharing her tips and tricks for rocking the style.

On bags

A handkerchief is one of the easiest ways to update your handbag for spring. Pick one in a bright color or beautiful floral pattern and tie it on to your purse's strap for a whole new look.
