Accessories are a big thing for any outfit, with the potential to make or break a look or ensemble. While jewelry and gloves, bags and purses and everything in between might be quite necessary, few of us ever really stop to think about hair accessories.
You may have spent a whole lot of time primping and styling your locks but you have left it lacking some extra embellishment that could completely alter your appearance. This is unfortunate considering the many ways you could add to your ‘do and make it look that much more glamorous and unique.
Simple things really can make a whole world of difference, whether it is a clip or a bandana, a hat or a pin. You can get creative, fill it up to the tee or just let it be — a simple look that appears intriguing to say the least.
Recently, designers have presented us with some of the most decadent hair ornaments for the upcoming 2015-2016 fall/winter season. These ultra glam pieces will inspire you to add a touch of sparkle and glam to your tresses during the colder months.
If the fall 2015 designer collections are any indication, when it comes to your hair next season, you are going to want to put a bow on it — or a ribbon, or a pretty jeweled clip, or a graphic oversized barrette, or possibly even a brooch plucked from your jewelry box as the case may be.
Geometric clips (Suno), jeweled accents (Prada, Dolce & Gabbana), and slim monochromatic pieces (Rochas) offer plenty of alternatives for accessorizing even the simplest of styles and look that much better pinned into easy, imperfectly done hair.
Here, a look back at a few of our favorite fresh ideas, which we plan on putting into action, pronto.
The stylists at Chanel dominated the fashion week runways with their chunky black satin headbands that pulled the hair back away from the face and added a dainty and feminine touch.
Although silk and satin headbands always appear chic, new textured bands such as leather or jewel-encrusted ones are also all the rage. Proenza Schouler showcased sleek leather headbands as well as some adorned with sparkles and added bands in thin strips.
Colored bands such as the orange elastic headbands worn at the Fendi show looked bright and refreshing and did a stylish job at keeping stray tendrils away from the face while bringing the focus towards the forehead region and the eyes.
Girly pink headbands from Honor were the perfect no-fuss accessories, adding to a woman’s femininity. At Gucci we saw white floral headbands placed atop blonde hair with pink edges, looking oh-so-beautiful and positively unique.
While the spring and summer seasons were full of huge bows, the fall and winter seasons have seen smaller, jeweled bows instead and certainly not as often. They appeared in multiple pieces on a single model’s head at Dolce & Gabbana, appearing to be a lovely combination of sweet and delicate as well as youthful with a mature outlook.
Pretty little bows were added to the ends of the braids at the Giles show as well, in soft satin and looking positively gorgeous against the platinum blonde of the hair. At Delpozo, onlookers were treated to the sight of oversized bow headbands that we just might grab in those pasty pink colors.
Jeweled Clips and Barrettes
Jewels in your hair may not be something you would normally go for, but they can appear to be quite lovely. Plus, they add bling to any ‘do, sprucing up any outfit just through the presence of something sparkling on your head.
That’s where the jeweled accents seen at Prada or even Dolce & Gabbana come in, from the colorful designs of the former keeping the hair looped to the side in place with those incredible barrettes to the gorgeous golden ribbon enamel and jewel encrusted roses of the latter.
The best looks, though, seemed to be the Chanel strike-through hair pins that went perfectly with the satin headbands while effectively adding retro to futuristic looks and keeping us with eyes trained on the runway, demanding more and more despite the fashion house’s elaborate and long collection for the fall and winter seasons of this year.
While they were certainly not a common sight, headscarves and such headwear, such as the Agnes B tulle headwear and the Dolce & Gabbana options, were extremely intriguing and looked rather sweet tied in with the ponytails and updos.
Headscarves were tied on at Delpozo as well, coming in pastel pinks and navy blues and encompassing the whole of the head in a look that appears to be chic and Gypsy like.
