Headbands have always been in style but this summer they’re at the forefront of fashion. Classic and effortless, a headband has the power to complete your outfit and bring a simple jeans-and-tee look to a whole new level. They’re the perfect summer accessory and, most importantly, have a huge variety of styles and ways to wear them. They can keep your hair out of your face and remain stylish, which is very useful in the summer. Since you do have such a vast selection, it can be difficult to know what will suit you. I’m here to help! Here are 10 headbands every girl can rock this summer.
1. Polka Dot
Polka dot is my favourite print and pattern. It’s cute and quirky but also easy to transition from day to night-time. I’m certain polka dot goes with absolutely everything with a nod to retro. There is something timelessly classic about polka dots. Major Audrey Hepburn vibes!
A bandana is probably the most popular and classic type of headband. It looks cool and badass for a rocker or biker edge. Either tie at the front like seen below or wear covering most the head.
3. Vintage Scarf Print
Vintage scarf print is relatively new back into fashion but all over the spring/summer runways. Gives off a very expensive and classy vibe.
A knotted headband adds a little something extra to a normal band and looks very stylish. There are hundreds to choose from in shops and online.
5. Leopard Print
As well know leopard print has been massive this year. Its history is loaded with symbolism, from power to seduction. Shirts, pants, and handbags but also headbands too. It’s sexy and brave. The perfect statement print with a bit of edge.
Super feminine and girly is a bow. There’s no need to worry about looking childish because a bow headband is sweet and stylish only. If you are worried about looking a little young then go for a darker colour or pattern.
The opposite of dots is striped. Fashion has long been obsessed with stripes and they pop up season after season. Stripes come in all shapes and sizes, even directions and are great if you’re looking to add more detail into a plain look.
The headwrap represents far more than a piece of fabric wound around the head. It’s come to represent the cultural and historical lineage black Americans have maintained with the African continent. The headwrap originated in sub-Saharan Africa. We love the cultural significance and beauty.
Look instantly summery! If you’re someone who isn’t used to wearing bright colours then this might seem a little daunting but really it isn’t. If you’re wearing a bright coloured headband then that means you can style it with monochrome (black, white, grey) clothes. There is always the perfect colour to match your skin tone, I personally find a mustard yellow or burnt orange goes well with most.
10. Any Pattern
The great thing about headbands is that really any pattern or colour looks amazing. This means you can make a unique choice personal to you and rock it!
Hopefully, you have now been reinspired or persuaded to try out a headband. Blair Waldorf sported them throughout Gossip Girl and proved to us just how amazing they are. If you need more tips or advice on how to wear them then there are lots of online tutorials to watch and learn from.
