If you’re an accessories lover then this post is for you. I’ve always been partial to a skinny, silk scarf, I think it helps me to channel my inner Kate Moss during the winter months, but can then be accessorised with my holiday wardrobe come summer. Last year we saw the rise of the turban when it came to the must-have beachwear accessory, but as with majority of fashion must-haves not everyone gets them, and it can make you conscious of peoples’ comments or not even willing to give them a go. Well this year the crowning glory of your poolside glamour is much easier to wear and comes in the form of a knotted headband.
This week I bagged a chic yet simple, wide black knotted headband from Zara for just £7.99 (shown below and also comes in red and yellow) – It’s quickly become my favourite new accessory. The great thing about these headbands is that whilst they’re good for keeping your sweaty barnet under control, without giving you hat-hair after a day lounging in the sun, they will also work with the rest of your summer wardrobe.
I love a good hat on holiday, a woven trilby is my fav, but there is something about wearing it whilst pounding the pavements, instead of wandering on the sand, sea lapping at my toes, that doesn’t work for me. My favourite new accessory on the other hand will easily slip into my everyday wardrobe once the holiday, and tan, has faded.
Whether you’re a boho babe or like simple clean lines, there is a way for everyone to rock out a headband this summer. Don’t be shy, hold your head high and I guarantee you’ll love it. Here are a few of my current favs with a couple of head scarves thrown in for good measure.
