Accessories Report

In last week’s ACCESSORIES REPORT, I mentioned how, more often than not, headwear usually does not get a lot of love. Well, this week I am actually continuing with the trend and talking up all the pros of a good headwrap.

Headwraps, as well as their more conservative cousin, the headscarf, have seen a steadfast revival in the recent years as a livelier alternative to hats and ear muffs during the winter months. But, did you know that you could also rock them during the spring and summer seasons, too? Lightweight headwraps, such as this waffle-knit version from Urban Outfitters, can be used as a placeholder for when you want to wear a classic center part. Another great thing about headwraps is that they can be a delightful little add on accessory for your already styled outfit. They can also be thrown on quickly for those days when you might not feel like styling your hair.

This Fashionista shows us how easy and breezy it can be to wear your twisted headwrap in the springtime. She tastefully pairs her leopard headwrap, such as this one from Forever 21, perfectly with the muted neutral browns of her ensemble. Likewise, the bronze color detailing is a running theme through out her outfit, as can be seen on the shoulder of her flowing beige blouse. ­­Similarly, the brown motif continues with her edgy, leather combat boots and her cross-body Coach handbag.

Furthermore, this Fashionista brings some gold accents to the table with her rose and yellow gold accessories to play up the caramel hues of her outfit. Altogether she is a perfect example of how a chic little headwrap can be incorporated into your daily outfit. Another prime example of how to rock a mean headwrap includes styles like this one from Dillard’s, which is of the slimmer, more fitted variety.

Additionally, one of the more fabulous facts about headwraps is that they come in an assortment of colors, sizes and fabrics. Not only can you wear them during any season, as I previously mentioned, but you can mix and match patterns to fit your entire wardrobe.  Lovely knits are optimal in the winter, while a lightweight jersey headwrap will be a much better fit during the warm spring and summer months. Twist headwraps, such as this one from Etsy, are on trend with its bright and fun camouflage print.
