A favourite among many, from Brigitte Bardot to Blair Waldorf. Oversized statement headbands were a prominent piece across Spring 2019 runways, from Prada and Givenchy to Alexander Wang. Complete your look with a colourful frisky flare or rather a subtly savvy headband. From sophisticated satin and crystal embellishments to pastoral pastels. These are the four trends, shop till you drop – Blaire Waldorf style!
1 || Do a Kate
Kate Middleton is an avid fan of the ‘hatband’: the plump, padded headband. HRH is often spotted sporting such accoutrements, usually going for darker tones in velour. When opting for a regular sized headband, stick to subdued hues, guaranteed to land you a très Middleton-esque look.
2 || Embellished
Walking for the Givenchy couture Spring/Summer 2019 show, Kaia Gerber has reignited the embellished headband trend. Sometimes more is more.
3 || Textures
From ribboned silk & satin to knotted velvets. Don’t shy away from these statement pieces when they come in bold and vibrant colours!
4 || Prints
Graphic prints are all the rage. In an interview with Vogue regarding her retro patterned prints, designer Batsheva Hay dishes out some styling advice on the hip and happening headband, claiming she prefers them not to conventionally match the dress or outfit. The interviewer then goes onto say “Consider that carte blanche to pile on the prints”.
5 || The Understated Headband
Lupita Nyongo’s infamous understated minimalist headband is a timeless celestial piece, perfect for any occasion.
