Day 316: Headbands that are a head above the rest
Ever since headbands were single handedly resurrected by Blaire Waldorf from other forgotten 80s hair fashions (remember the banana clip?), they have been making a slow and steady comeback. Somewhere between adorning the crown of Coco Chanel, and the heads of little school girls, this hair accessory has had a confusing place in fashion. Luckily, nowadays there is such a large selection of headbands, it’s easy to find one for any style and occasion.
From simple satin bows, to bands studded with crystals and feathers - with all the choices out there, you’ll be able to find a headband that is sure to turn heads. Here are a few options to prove that a headband doesn’t come to mind only during yoga class!
The Colette Malouf Mesh Botanical Swarovski can be worn like a traditional headband or as a tiara. This adjustable headband is made out of fine mesh shaped into plumeria blossoms and comes in three colors, though the silver-ivory (also in black and grey) is exceptionally dazzling.

For a more casual look, the Missoni Chevron Wool blend headband truly brings function to fashion. Keep your fly aways under control, or use it as an ear muff while dashing around town.

Headbands offer a non-traditional alternative to the veil for brides, if not during the ceremony, then later on for the reception. The Vera Bohemian headwrap from Untamed Petals, wraps elegantly around the crown of the head. The three crystalled sections have tiny combs that help the wrap stay in place, making a delicate and layered look that would add a modern touch for the boho-chic bride.
If feathers are your fancy, the Jacques Vert Feather Scatter Stone Headband sweeps up with a mix of crystals and black feathers from one side, drawing the eye up. This dramatic piece can complement an elegant evening outfit.

For something more simple, L. Erickson USA has a Bit Silk Charmeuse headband that is a basic band with a horsebit detail. In a variety of colors, this classic band can easily be put on top of a sleek bun or straight ponytail to add a little “bit” of fun and class.
And if you really just need a headband for yoga class, might I suggest the Under Armour headbands with Armourgrip. Made out of moisture-wicking fabric, the more active you are, the more it stays in place.
