Celebrities like Charlize Theron and Jenifer Lawrence helps women become more daring and fashion aware. Who said you cannot use your Christmas tree ribbon as a fashion accessory? You can do whatever you like, as long as you do it tastefully and this is what celebrities stand up for every time they appear with a crazy and inspiring outfit on the red carpet. This spring, it’s once again the turn of headbands to help women make a statement and prove their originality and individuality. Following are just a couple of headband styles popular today:
The floppy bow
This look is definitely worth a try, considering the fact that it only takes a couple of second to dig a ribbon from your drawers and wrap it around the head. It is an easy to accomplish look and the result is amazing. You can use whatever ribbon you can find in the house, form an old wrapping paper or even your Christmas tree ribbon. Make sure that you have enough to wrap it around your head twice before making a large bow. The floppy bow is easily obtained: position the ribbon on the left or right side of your head and tie it in a loose bow making sure the knurl is tightly tied, because you only want the loop to be loose.
The ultra thin headbands are used to give a sophisticated and elegant look to the wearer. It is even more effective if you use a gold, silver or ivory thin headband, as it will give the impression of wearing a valuable and delicate chain. This type of headband complements elegant outfits, as well as casual looks very well. It fits great with a sophisticated dress for a special event.
Thicker headbands with a bit of adornments are also ideal for an elegant look. Depending on the type of adornment, you can wear your headband with an evening dress or jeans and a T-shirt. This is a popular choice among women with long hair. Crystal encrusted headbands are also in trend, but you need to pay attention to the way in which you assort them. Make sure you wear them just like jewelry and avoid adorning yourself form head to toe. Statement headbands require a simple outfit and preferably no earring or necklaces. Patterns and loud colors are also to be avoided, because statement jewelry and headbands are supposed to be the center of attention and other embellishments will take that attention away.
All in all, the headband trend is here to stay with more celebrities embracing the new look and more original ways of wearing them are starting to surface. Whether you are a fan of Gossip Girls or you simply like the look, you are bound to love the functionality of headbands as much as their aesthetic appeal.
