The harsh winter months not only sometimes bring snow, but a mean chill along with harsh winds. For a girl, this can be detrimental to the state of her hair because “just shaking it off” doesn’t always work. A cute hat can sometimes be a quick fix but as all Fashionistas know, a hat a day does not keep the wind away. Furthermore, who wants hat hair everyday? As another solution to keep the strands out of your face and your mane in place, look to stylish, chic headbands.
I stumbled across this Fashionista and her cute red bow on a sunny but windy day. There’s so much color in her outfit and her red bow just adds an extra pop. She accessorizes really well by just adding a necklace, a few bracelets and that’s it! One major accessory per outfit is sufficient enough. Try to keep the rest of the accessories subtle and your headpiece the main event. One thing I loved about this student’s outfit was her choice of colors. Red isn’t necessarily in what she’s wearing but it still goes. It isn’t so matchy-matchy, which makes her outfit chic and abstract.
Throwing on a statement headpiece is easy and quite cheap. Dramatic but cute headpieces can be found numerous places for a student friendly price. Try stopping at places in the mall like Accessorize and Accessorize.com. Sites such as LuLus.com and Urbanog.com offer dramatic but cute headpieces for really good prices. Head pieces come in numerous different colors, patterns, adornments and even fits so you'd have numerous choices. If you really want to go all out try Etsy.com. They have an array of head pieces from handmade to vintage.
For inspiration, look to history's most infamous headband queen Blair Waldorf. While Leighton Meester's character on Gossip Girl has recently evolved from villain to protagonist, she styles her head pieces a bunch of different ways. Taking inspiration from Blair will give you a lot of ideas that you can make your own.
Don't forget you can always D.I.Y a head piece and save lots of money.
Spotted: One step up from dramatic to over the top, runway shows like Moschino have taken headpieces to another level. Be inspired by scaling down these looks and making it just dramatic enough for your campus.
