You have seen me in bobby pins, headbands and hair clips, and I’m not about to stop. In fact let’s talk the major fashion trend that started last summer with simple bow ties and keeps on growing, developing and amazing fashion junkies of the world. Let’s see why we all love it, how we can master it and who is the major inspiration to look up to.
Preppy cool – this is how I would describe all this pins-and-clips movement. From our early school years to the latest Paris Fashion Week one thing is certain, no matter if your style is super minimalistic or full on avant-garde, everyone can find a way to style the trend. These details can upgrade the whole basic look to chic or keep a dressier look to the cool, low-key level. In fact, let’s go through my little selection for visual demonstration.
The key is to keep the rest of the hair simple. The most common way it to keep your hair down in the natural way and simply add a headband or a combination of your favorite accessories. It doesn’t matter if you prefer adding textured waves to your heir or keeping it slick, what matters is an effortless feeling.
Styling combinations are countless! You can play it cool with a single statement piece, or combine 2 or more pins of a similar esthetic, or put infinite number of basic bobby pins all on one side, or separate your hair in the center and clip it from both sides symmetrically… But I would recommend to keep your bold, colorful combination for more minimalistic looks, such as white top and jeans. Balancing the whole look with this trend is simple!
Lastly, let me introduce you to my ultimate inspiration, Vanessa Hong, who nailed this hair trend like a pro and is about to spoil us with a very special hair accessories collaboration with LELET NY. I will keep you updated on that one but before that enjoy the pictures.
Headbands definitely deserve a place in this trend report. The rule with these IT Accessories – The Bigger, The Better.
Being a fan of Blair Waldorf, I have been loving headbands since high school but this teenage obsession of mine has got a new form (literally).
Not only these headbands are now wider but also much taller via the curve volume.
The first brand that started this trend in past season was Alessanda Rich for SS19 collection. Georgian brand N-Duo Concept in collaboration with Desert Mannequin was also among the first to catch the trend and than Prada came and took the volume game to the daring level. This head pieces are definitely a statement for every outfit. You can find it in any color, fabric and embellishment so get inspired and choose the one that works for you.
Thanks for checking in. Hope you enjoyed and got inspired! Have a great week and stay tuned.
