Accessories Report

Most of the time, I would like to blame my laziness on late nights studying for finals and the unwelcoming cold weather. When it comes to getting ready in the morning, there’s nothing us college students know better than the “get up and go” look. No longer meant to hide the inevitable bedhead and match the “cozy” college style, fashion headbands are making a statement as the latest accessory that can spring your look into style savvy rather than sleep deprived.

This Fashionista is the perfect example of how stylish and simple headbands can be for any outfit. Easy and versatile, wraps are the perfect accessory to add some flair to your ‘do. You can change from day to night or from gym to class by wearing all sorts of headband wraps. What I love most about this Fashionista’s headband is its bright colors, unique print and retro twist. Try exploring different styles and pick a headband with a geometric pattern or funky bow for a little extra detail.

Not only do headbands go with a variety of looks, but headbands can also go with a variety of hairstyles.Whether you channel modern bohemian with a loose braid or prefer a preppier style with a ballerina bun, adding a headband can dress up any outfit. This season’s latest trends include minimalistic black headbands for a more classic look and floral detailing for a lighter, feminine touch.

One of my favorite things about fashion is mixing and matching; the possibilities are endless! This season it is popular to pair a statement T-shirt with unique prints for bottoms. Matching two prints is a chic way to make an outfit fun and multidimensional. This Fashionista rocks the perfect combination by mixing a bold, graphic tee with some killer printed harem pants. The bold, strong lettering on her T-shirt contrasts effortlessly with the relaxed, softer print of her pants. She adds some punk by sporting a few funky and unique pendants that show off her cool personality. Keep your look casual like her by wearing a pair of black combat boots and a light zip-up sweater.

As winter winds down, spring is ready to be wrapped up… literally. With a stylish headband, now you will get up and be more than good to go!
