Hair accessories are back in fashion’s favour, and if the front rows are anything to go by, then we’re going to be embracing them for seasons to come. Our advice? Put down your made-to-blend-in kirby grips and grasp something all the more statement making. From bands to barrettes, here are the hair accessories you’ll want to add to your SS19 collection.
Two of a Kind
When it comes to the hair-clip trend, make it a double. As seen on street stylers the world over, the chicest way to keep those flyaways tamed this season is with two identical clips sitting side by side. Choose mottled bars of resin for a sleek, uniform feel that translates as ‘grown up’, or embrace the snap clips of your playground memories for something a little quirkier.
With the Band
Once a badge of honour for New York’s Upper East Siders – thank you, Blair Waldorf – the headband is back on our radar with an all-new sense of cool. The preppy aesthetic is taken down a peg thanks to loud prints, with punchy leopard spots and beachy palms issuing a bold twist to gathered fabrics. Team yours with a pair of statement earrings: the headband is perfect for showing them off.
The lustre of pearls still has the fashion world in a trance, and now they’re gaining fresh appreciation in our everyday hairstyles. A chunky barrette clip is the way to go for a single pop of the pearl trend, while a trail of dainty bulldog clips with pearly flowers has an ultra-pretty effect on braids and twists.
