5 Headbands That We’re Obsessed With

Headbands have been reborn. Once associated with royalty, these ultra-chic hair accessories have had a strong presence on the recent runways (Prada, Miu Miu and Dior – we’re looking at you), with padded, embellished and sparkly styles all making the high-fashion cut. Since then, they’ve won over celebrities and street stylers alike, joining pearl-encrusted hair clips, slogan slides and printed scarves to become the latest trend taking over Instagram. Ready to get acquainted? Here are five headbands that we’re obsessed with right now.


Headbands: As Seen On


The celebrity seal of approval has been delivered. Headbands have been seen on the likes of celebrity stylist Marina Didovich who created a top-to-toe tonal look with her padded piece in soft lilac, as well as Pippa Middleton – we like how she’s proven the accessory’s royal relevance with a bold beauty in cornflower blue.


1. Blush Hour


Padded headbands have returned to the fashion forefront. A favourite of the style crowd, these puffed-up pieces feel decidedly regal, whether worn with distressed denim or a girlish gown. For something that refuses to blend into the background, go for romantic rose pink – wear yours with soft waves or a low pony.


2. Fade to Black


Prefer to keep it classic? Offering an easy into the headband trend, this plush pick is designed in classic black for low-low versatility, and can be worn day or night for an outfit-elevating effect.  Modernise it with a monochrome outfit or draw attention to its nostalgic disposition with polka dots or gingham prints.


3. Knot Today


Creating the illusion of a silky scarf, knotted designs are also a prominent part of the headband trend. Vintage styling comes into play with these pretty pieces, crafted in a subtly sparkly fabrication with plisse pleats for a modern twist. Keep it classically cool with an all-black number or opt for something softer with a rose-toned treasure.


4. Pearl Adorned


A new alternative to the pearl-encrusted slides that we know and love, embellished headbands are having a well-deserved moment in SS19. From black to barely-there blush, pearl-adorned picks are the ones we’re wearing to every summer diary date, from weekend brunches to sun-soaked weddings.


5. Make the Braid


Milkmaid styling is officially a thing this season, with square necklines, shirred details and puff sleeves making up the main talking points of the trend. Lucky for us, this ultra-feminine aesthetic has also translated onto hair accessories, as seen on our black plaited headband – the cool girl’s way to emulate the milkmaid braid.
