STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Bohemian Headbands

Headbands are so underrated. Not only do they serve a practical purpose (keeping your hair out of your face), but they look amazing as well. Unfortunately, many people continue to associate these accessories exclusively with conservative fashion. However, contrary to popular belief, headbands can function beyond prep school lunches and Sundays at church. In fact, these versatile hair ornaments can help add flair to almost any outfit.

In general, finding the right headband is all about discovering the right style for your hair. Those with thick, curly locks may prefer thicker headbands to thinner alternatives, which tend to slide and slip. Those with straight hair may want to consider delicate headbands, which won’t overwhelm fine hair as much as larger bands. Whatever your particular hair type, it’s always best to test out several options until you discover some styles that work best for you.

There are also plenty of color and material options for headbands. For a more casual look, try pairing a simple suede headband with a pair of jeans and a lightweight cardigan. For a more formal alternative, opt for a metallic headband. With a sophisticated velvet dress and high ponytail, it’s the perfect holiday outfit.

This Fashionista chose to combine a basic plastic chain headband with black pants and a deep gray sweater for a minimalistic yet chic ensemble. To make her outfit more interesting, she selected a pair of black heeled boots. Her maroon camisole and multicolored dangly earrings add a splash of color.
