THE STYLE STALKER
The new season is imminent, and while a new wardrobe is always exciting, this season, hair and hair accessories are arguably where the real event is taking place. From draped and bejewelled pieces showcased at Khaite and Afffair to billowing feathers at Erdem and Giambattista Valli, designers treated the runway with a plethora of gems that will elevate any outfit or grid picture next season. In our edit below that will make any hair crush jealous, discover what florals are for you and what headbands will turn heads.
Florals might not be groundbreaking, but they are certainly elegant. As spring and summer roll around, we will be hit with an abundance of styles that will be inevitable hits. From the pretty colour selection provided by Bora Aksu to a maximalist bouquet constructed by Prabal Gurung, flowers won’t just be for wedding season.
A mauve colour story one cannot resist.
Muted and vintage, a classic statement.
Romantic and elegant, a flower to be worn at either weddings or festivals.
DRAPED & BEJEWELLED HEADPIECES
No longer a red carpet–only accessory, the diamond trend treats the hair more like the décolletage. Whether spread over the head like at Khaite or elegantly placed down to the centre of the face such as Afffair, this sophisticated look will turn heads at the next dining date.
Cast a spell with this intricate piece.
Cover up your hair sins with this Rosantica beaded accessory.
Draped and embellished—no need to say this twice: Consider it bought.
Silk, lightweight and easy to complement any style.
The colour is so satisfying.
Limited-edition and bright for spring.
A favourite trend to date, this muted and minimal style complements every wardrobe. Either wrap a thin one around a sleek pony several times as done at Proenza Schouler or fold one into a low bun. This chic look is unconventional but still timeless.
Use a skinny scarf to wrap around the hair.
I’m sold on this print alone.
Great for sealing in a low bun.
Pearls surfaced toward the end of 2018 and haven’t disappeared since. Draped over the head, in hair grips or decorated through a headbands, pearls really have become the modern-day classic.
A modern and minimal twist.
Oh so romantic.
Cutesy but still chic.
Taking the charge all spring/summer last year, headbands are now bolder than ever, and as they reinforce their authority in 2020, we can afford to stand out from the crowd. Whether in a thin satin, bold and monogrammed or embellished with stones, pearls and jewels, headbands are breaking their cult status from last season and becoming widespread.
Slightly reminiscent of a croissant, this textured leather headband is giving me all the Scandi vibes.
Textured and bold—I’m down!
Satin refuses to disappear, not that I’m complaining.
An explosion of light and colour, feathers stormed the runways and will storm our wardrobes in 2020. Exaggerated on a headband or more subtly on a hair clip, the feather trend will be the newcomer everyone wants to wear.
One for when you want to bring something extra to the beach.
Definitely consider for the next wedding guest outfit.
Make a real statement.
BOWS & RIBBONS
Nostalgic for the first days at school? Well, have we got good news: Bows and ribbons are keeping our hair in check for the coming season. Dotted through the hair at Sandy Liang, this simple trend is easy to emulate.
Just so easy to use.
The bigger the better I’d say!
