Looks We Love: The Wide Headband

It's finally back, signing out XOXO Gossip Girl

We Love...

Why It Works:

The headband discreetly pushes back Jenner’s hair to show off her features and she has paired the hairstyle with a popping statement lip. This is a simple look to achieve and is very versatile. Depending on your face shape or preference, you can either shift your hair in a middle or side parting, or even bring your bangs tousled to the front. You can also push the headband back over or under your ears.

Also Spotted On:

This 90s look seems to be timeless and frequently makes an appearance in pop culture. Whether it’s a nostalgic Clueless photograph on social media or a Yeezy accessory.

The velvet version of the wide headband has recently been spotted on singer Pixie Lott, whereas Kim Kardashian has made a headband appearance in a very distinct contoured way.

Follow Their Lead:

Currently on the high street, tropical headbands are here for the upcoming summer months. Zara has a selection of headbands in a range of colours and prints starting from £7.99.

If you prefer the more minimal style of headband to keep your flyaway hair at bay, opt for this H&M black silhouette for £5.99, or an actual sweat band priced at £2.99 for the sports-luxe look. If you’re feeling fancy, here’s the Gucci choice retailing at £180 to represent the brand simply across your head.

Top tip: you can also make your own headband by using a scarf you have in your wardrobe already.
